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.

i actually despise the redbull vid player. Always having issues with slow loading, glitchy playback. Fortunately, its O K mostly for the live playback. but pre-recorded stuff is just rubbish..

LOL. ok, i missed the quoted bits, evidently. So with that bit of 'context', the M means what and there are no ppl going down 80%, 20% up?
Don't misunderstand, i love their products, just this naming scheme is too contrived. We all know how SRAMs 5% blew up on the interwebs, and they were just kidding. This here is a real naming scheme. Oi.
Vital: what's the story behind the naming convention? Does M refer to Minnaar by any chance, and where's the M80-Twenty rim? What exactly do the numbers refer to?
