The prototype was the "Short" size with a 400mm reach. I typically prefer something in the 430mm range, so it was cramped at 5'10" tall, but was the only bike available to ride at the time.

Cheers for chiming in, Ozzy! The geo chart is correct. We tested the standard 27.5/650B (non-Plus) model.

Cheers for the feedback, Daniel! We aim to do more of this.
Concerning those comments, know that the content of Vital's "Tested" features is never paid for. We take testing very seriously and the separation of church and state is strong here. We also know that not every review can end up with a 5-star rating, otherwise what's the point of reading our work?

It's great to hear support for brands and pedals that weren't included in this test. We'll work to include them in future revisions of this feature. We plan to update it (and all future Face Offs) on at least a yearly basis.
While we wish we could physically test all of the pedals out there, it's simply not possible. Some are excused from the testing lineup for a variety of reasons, including not meeting certain feature requirements in a good pedal, not being on our radar (which is broad), not being available for purchase by the public, etc. Cost is also a factor we consider, and the $195-$270 that the Twenty6 pedals will set you back is a hard one for most readers to justify.
Cheers for the feedback, all!
If you enjoyed this feature, we'd love to hear what other types of products you'd like to see tested in a similar fashion on Vital MTB. Let 'em rip.
Loam is the world's finest riding surface and exists in special places. You just have to know where to look.
Haha! Now THAT is a review ladies and gents. I love your assessment of Pivot's creation.

It's like Pumped BMX in real life. Nicely done!

Yikes. If I were the innocent pedestrian that this drone almost fell on... WTF indeed.

Done poorly they can certainly be a hassle. Done correctly they can offer some big advantages on a bike like this.
These trails plus some Alsace wine tasting. Vacation anyone?

I believe the DBAir already had a larger bushing:
"The improved oil seal head (purple) has a larger quad ring that is far less susceptible to compression-set over time, particularly when exposed to heat. It also features a larger bushing (the same size as the DBAir and DBCoil), which is located outside of the oil chamber to increase lateral shaft strength. It also improves shaft-to-seal alignment."

It is a bit confusing. This area is all referred to as the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region:

Thanks for the invite, buddy! For various reasons I won't be at Rampage this year, but keep an eye out for Boris. He's always up for a good time.

Done correctly they can be.
