Maybe they have custom decals, but they didn't arrive in time. Maybe you should believe me. They are very much still supporting the Syndicate.

I'll add that I'm running mine with a Monarch with Debonair can - it's quite the ride. To control bottom out I'm using 3 or 4 (can't remember) bottomless rings.
I love this bike. My second day on it was race day at the Moab Ho-down and I put down my best times ever on the courses. Last weekend I rode it in the Enduro Cup in Moab, and now with a couple parts swaps, it's ready to race the Grand Junction Off-road 40-mile backcountry XC race. A week after that race, we're headed to Whistler.

In all seriousness, E13 is a fantastic company. I'd love to try those tires!

"With riders like Aaron Gwin, Sam Hill, Josh Bryceland....you know each product is thoroughly tested before it hits the shelves."
Two of the first three are actually on MRP chainguides.
What about using aftermarket rings with Eagle? Specifically 11-speed direct-mount oval rings.

Ah ha, Eagle vs. Shark. I get it now. Nice work OneUp.

@2:04. Thank God for chainguides.

I love Shimano products, but damn, how can a company with $3 billion in sales put out a press release with grainy 2d images of forthcoming products?

Are those "plus-size" bikes?

"11 dropped chains on narrow/wide setups" Vital MTB keeps it trill.

That first action shot is amazing.

Seems like the inclusion of a video sample of your new video technology would make sense for a press release, no?

What kind of bashguard is that?

Right? I'm not seeing any way to mount a guide. What I'm also not seeing is any of their team riders riding without, so.....
Beautiful bike. Great details otherwise. I like that they've gone with a 190x51 shock instead of the increasingly common 184x44, this gives you wayyyy more options for shocks.

But winning general practice has no correlation with winning the race (see Ben Reid, John Kircaldie, Brendawg, etc.), unless you're Remi Thirion.
...nor does winning the internet (or internets) (see Wyn Masters, Bernard Kerr, Phil Atwill, etc.).

Keep in mind that this was made for a VERY general audience - so, yeah, some of the narration isn't 100% correct. But you get the idea. My favorite bit is the distinction between the inner and outer suspension forks, haha.

She was a great bike!
How many miles do you have on that ring?
It may be that most chainring reviews are "full of all kinds of technical data, CAD drawings, friction coefficients, etc." but reviews should have some kind of qualifying information like that, not simply be "it worked, it's great."
Having pretty extensively tested N/W rings over the last year or so, I can tell you they all seems sensitive to wear to varying degrees. Pretty much any of them will work flawlessly at first - thus the reason you might see a sponsored athlete able to tackle a few runs down Rampage guideless. However, it's rare you'll any elite racers go without a guide in competition - even those with full factory support.
I mean, I'll happily sell anyone a chain-retaining style ring, and for some people that performance is good enough. But, it's about time an MTB site did a real test of these products' performance and durability. I think you'll find their (rings only) long-term performance still falls short of a really basic upper-only chainguide - a product that's cheap, doesn't really "wear out", weighs as little as 40g, and doesn't introduce friction to the system (which interestingly is cited as a "con" for chainguides, but never mentioned in regards to rings).
Sorry, rant over, haha. Killing time in the passenger seat on the long drive to Sea Beaver.
