Trapezoidal tubes allow for the dispersion of shock forces between the top tube and down tube. At the riding sag point, most of the shock forces are directed along the top tube. At suspension bottom-out, at most critical points, the rear shock rotates and shock forces are split between the top tube and down tube via the single-sided support strut.
The Suspension kinematics are designed so that the suspension feels the same for different sized riders. Small bikes are less progressive, Medium bikes more and Large bikes the most. Similar shock tune, & similar rear triangle used across sizes, but the suspension linkage is size specific. This is designed to rotate the shock more - give more mechanical advantage/leverage over the suspension to the lighter (smaller rider), and to the bigger bike, give less mechanical advantage - resulting in more progressive suspension.
