Flexible points are supposedly a feature that allows the tree-points to flex a bit, so if it's, say, a medium tree, the tree-points would "self-adjust" to a medium/narrow or medium/wide.
I've never believed it. Always figured it's a marketing gimmick. And if it's real, I always figured it would just flex/bounce/pinch with the rider's weight shifts and pitch the saddle one way or the other and create more problems than it would fix.
I've just never actually seen what these magical flexible tree-points would actually look like...
Can you get a close-up of the tree-points, taken from directly from the front? I wonder if there's some kind of joint or spring in there, or if it's just the tree material itself that's so soft that it just flexes (or breaks, as in your case).
