Do you know why so much force is required to open a poppit valve? It's cause the air is pressing on the valve pin forcing it shut. If you remove surface area that the pressure can work against, the valve will open a lot easier leading to a smoother gun. I'm not sure about the whole lever thing, but I'm sure it helps or else they would have just went with the new valve.

Remember that PE didn't make an Ego12 because the 11 was so good and they wanted to actually make something better. This is apparently it and it looks great as far as performance goes.
