Droppers are practically required on these new "rider-forward" designs. You typically run a steeper STA (final saddle position), which not only means you're more forward (in relation to BB), but higher COG. And now that a front derailleur is near extinction, the dropper remote makes perfect sense. All internally routed, of course. It's a great time for mountain bikes. A lot of things have "come together" recently.
