We did our best to get footage of every ride, but due to time constraints missed a few.

We hear you loud and clear, Jukulae! We'll do our best to get some time on the 29-inch version in the future.

Extra rotational weight no doubt contributed. The 2.6-inch Slaughter GRID rear tire weighs in at 945g and the Butcher GRID at 985g. Many 2.3/2.4-inch Maxxis EXO tires are in the 875-915 range. That's a bit like comparing apples to oranges though.
We try to get a good mix of bikes at various price points while keeping the average price in the ~$5,000 range. Though relative strengths and weaknesses are considered, please keep in mind that this is not a comparison test. Sometimes the exact model we request isn't available for a test. The Specialized faired very well given its price point.
Thanks for the heads up! I'll have our developers take a look soon.

Nothing like a 27mph flat sprint on your DH rig. Get it, Gwin!

Genuinely appreciate your opinion, Cliffy! It may be a matter of where you ride and your chosen gearing combo. Can you describe the trails a bit? Tucson is a full-on, unrelenting square edge chunk fest in sections.
You're on the money, which is why our conclusion points to a similar type of rider to what you describe.
Without testing to the extreme end of things it's impossible to know where a bike excels and struggles. The variety of terrain in Tucson allowed us to find where the Recluse does best.
One of the rad things they've done on the new Freerider (and many of their other designs going forward) is to sew around the entire sole, helping prevent delimitation. The Freerider Pro features this on the toe. As Johan mentioned, a lot of it has to do with the rubber, too.

We're on it, boys! The Face Off feature Spomer alluded to will have some super scientific curb smashing with various controls in place.

I believe you're referring to RockShox's Counter Measure technology. The spring system opposes the effect of IFP pressure, lowering initial breakaway force.
Hopkins, Secco, Lacy, and crew, well done! Perfect timing, too. With the snow thawing there's nothing like a rad video to up the stoke even more.

Great to hear your feedback, Gweggy!

Good catch, chip! We were under the impression that the bike was anodized, but when Guerrilla Gravity responded about what looked like cracks they noted it was powder coated instead. The wording has been updated to remove any confusion.
Thanks, Dave! Always nice to get comments from one of the guys designing such rad components.
In good time! Each of these reviews require a good deal of time and effort to craft, so we appreciate your patience. Is there a particular bike you're interested in?

Yes, these are the lines in the powder coat mentioned in the review.
