Hi, as stated in the article, the lever feel becomes a bit more direct with the metallic pads, but there is not a lot of difference in power and bite.

I saw some pictures of the smoke as some people were flying into Whistler, I could imagine the racers' lungs will be hurting even with the less physical course.

LOL fake news. they had a note about smoke from local fires and air quality being the reason for the adjustment for more lifts and less climbing i guess?

Liked a comment on the item POV of All 5 Stages of the Whistler Enduro World Series 8/8/2017 3:14 PM

4200m of climbing would be absurd...

Now you have used the metallic pads, what are your thoughts? Are they a lot more powerful than with the organic?

They say there are "4200m of climbing (with a little help from lifts)", but really its ~1300m of climbing and a lot of chairlift uphill. Fake news! The runs all look like a lot of fun, hopefully the weather stays pleasant.

These are so much better than any other DH media out there. It's like being at the race. I know the six minute version is "more boring" than the shorter, more intense Vital RAW of the past, but getting to see rider after rider trying the same section gives a much more...more

This is a great article,thanks for this! I have been using both Cush Core and Huck Norris. The Cush Core seems to be holding up well so far but I have not removed the tires yet for an inspection, these are on my DH bike. On my trail bike I wanted the lighter set up so I opted for the Huck...more

These seem like good ideas, but at that price I need to know they will last for at least a solid season of aggressive trail or DH riding. Did you guys experience any failures (tearing, cracks, etc.) with the inserts or signs that they may fail in in the next few months?

It's really a rule meant for road racing to keep TT bikes from running a small front wheel to get closer while drafting.

The UCI has a rule that states a bicycle must have same size wheels. So they could run a 79 incher, but not a 29" front 27.5" rear. A UCI representative had an interview on here or Dirt saying they may look into changing the equal size wheel rule starting 2018. I'm interested to try anything, 29, 79, 69, even a 24 front 29 rear, why not!

That's the second time Gwin has been up and then crashed/stopped in the flat stuff at Fort William. Both times he landed on the podium, wild! You could see the difference braking early and cornering smooth arcs makes at the top during Gwin and Minnaars' runs. They made it look so much easier than the rest of the field.

If it's all about 'how fast they go' let's bring back skinsuits. Easily worth 2s on a track like Fort William...more if it's windy.

I am just going to go out there on a limb and say i hate that the term "playful" is an attribute bikes are measured by.

That looked surprisingly mellow to be a top 5 qualifier time. Especially considering he had to check up several times for other riders.
