I recently acquired an Airborne Manhattan Project... and in their application... it stiffens the rear triangle a bit... my ride experiences confirm this (large rider with ZIPP 404 tubular wheels). The bike feels laterally stiff (more of a masher than a spinner) and scoots forward when you stand to pedal.
Remain In Light.
