Bahahaha. 3%. Manufacturing tolerances are more than that jack stack. One of the dudes I work with has last years Malavitas and this years Cartels. They're softer. He said so. He owns both. He's been riding for 20ish years. I had a wwhole discussion with the head rep out here about it. How he's tired of them changing the Cartel literally every single year. That he wished they take a year off on it and let it be.
I'll believe they're the same stiffness only after the designer himself talks to me.
This is the internets. Without anything to back it up I might as well just say Jake told them too soften them up cause he wanted them a bit more playful.
