not sure either, but if i had to take a stab at his assertion, then i'd say that's the day we start adding all things electronic to what was meant to be a purely mechanical+hydraulic system. motors and electronic shifting? seriously? wtf.

no venting required. its not an airtight assembly.
belleville springs. never thought i'd have to look at main steam system safety valves with lust...
yes, that was my first guess: they are non-production wheels, but i was hoping it was an existing retail product. Not amped for buying new rims just to fit what's essentially an inner tube

i already had a look at the Deemax range, and the ultimate has a stated internal rim width of 21mm. I'm asking about Hill's specific rims, because the Procore system says the internal rim width must be at least 23mm. If it works in a 21mm rim, i'd be pretty stoked as I'm deadkeen on trying the Procore system.
what's the inner width on Sam Hill's Mavic rim?
are those custom 650b Deemax Ultimates? Rim width? Mavic website doesn't indicate that they have 650b Ultimates available.

good spot there Acadian. didn't see that pic. But it does make me wonder why Brosnan seems to have changed.
Reason i'm asking is that i've made the move to Guides from XO Trails, and my word, these things are brutal. It's not so much the power that has changed, which it hasn't (pretty much the same as XO Trails and Codes), but rather WHEN that power comes on. Its so much earlier than previous SRAM brakes, IMO of course.
according to the Dirt MSA finals gallery (image 44/46), he wasn't. Very clearly XO Trail levers+ Code calipers. Vital's own finals slideshow (Sam Slaughter) shows in slide 11/46 that Brosnan is running XO Trail lever bodies. In that same Dirt slide show, Gwin (29/46) was sporting Guide lever bodies, and Hart (31/46) looks like silver Code/XO -Trail lever bodies. No guides.
funny that both Brosnan and Hill are not using the guides as per previous rounds. Brosnan was also riding the XO Trail lever + Code caliper combo. I wonder if SRAM wants to tell us something about the Guides. VitalMTB?
what dont you like about them? I'm presuming you've ridden them for some period of time before delivering that verdict of yours.
whois the interviewer with Cam in the last pic?

not to mention the Penske brains behind the RE:Aktiv regressively valved shock. That portion, added to the ohlins, ERS,etc standard valving could make for more efficient pedalling of downhill bikes on pedally tracks.
