contact patch gets wider but shorter. Not 100% convinced having a shorter contact patch is better as the top pros are still on fairly narrow rims (under 35mm) and tires (2.3 to 2.5).

I said the area of the contact patch is the same given the same air pressure and weight. The shape of the contact patch will change but not the area.

the contact patch is going to be the same (area wise) no matter what tires or wheels you use. Contact patch is based on weight and pressure. Only the shape is going to change.

You might put the Morsa on the front and the Goma in the back. I would put them both in the garbage.

You can't say that a more rearward arc axle path is better. There are always tradeoffs. Remember that the wheel has to comeback.

$1,200 for the cartridge and it adds a pound to the fork.

$89 US$ ($110 CDN) to save to 30 seconds... should be called the "Q36R Enduro".

It wasn't a flat. His tire rolled off the rim. Happens when running tubeless and cornering hard.

I believe his time would have beat all the ladies. Not bad for no rear tire for most the race.
