He looks like he'd be a fast runner this way, maybe it's the narrow torso and the feet (I'm with you on the shock absorbers thing, that metal suit would have ripped up his heels and calves without something to carry the load). Well done.
I'd prefer this design over what they are actually using in a comic. If Cyborg is supposed to be so technologically advanced, why does he look so bulky in the new design? This I can believe he can still be athletic and still sci-fi. Though, frankly so much of his human body is gone, he's more of a robot with a human head than an actual cyborg.
