External reservoirs? Are those specific to the ACE?

All NA/NB ACE have reservoirs. This allows us to keep the stroke within a few mm of the XL. The ACE valve takes up some space which is why we couldn't make it work on the shorter Xida Race.

The ND has enough space to add the valve without losing stroke and keeping the right pressure balance, That 's basically fluid volume vs nitrogen volume with the compression ration factored in. Too much pressure rise adversely affects damping quality, manifesting as hysteresis. Greatly simplified, that's jittering over small bumps instead of soaking them up the way Xidas are famous for.
