Active chainring spider reduces/eliminate feedback through pedals from pedal kickback and chain mass oscillation during descending. Makes a big difference to suspension action and control which allows you to ride faster!
Pinkbike's Matt Beer says:
"The chain forces that the Active Spider isolates is quite impressive. I believe there is both a physical improvement to the suspension performance when the chainring can rotate to a degree, plus it adds a qualitative bonus by reducing the noises caused by chainslap. The small amount of lag in the pedal stroke is a tradeoff that is worth coming to terms with if the bike in question is susceptible to chain feedback."
