I can't tell you exactly what pressure Bruni runs, but I can tell you that most of the riders I spoke to about Procore mentioned that it's more about a little extra protection for the rim and a stronger tubeless seat and less about running lower pressure. At the speeds these guys go and given how hard they corner, they still feel tires getting squirmy pretty quick when dropping below their normal pressures.

Hey guys. I'll leave Joel to confirm this, but from shooting them for the review, I can confirm that the cleat range is further back than the shoes of the past. Not sure if it's positioned as far back as the new Impact, but it's certainly on par with the more recent Maltese Falcon.

I don't have a pair of Impact VXi shoes in the garage at the moment, but they have just as much as the Maltese Falcon LT. You can also see from my cleat position in the photo that I have tons of room to move further back.

Even folks that want to run the pedal nearly in the middle of their foot should have enough range.

SO many sexy bits Santa Cruz put into the development and production of these bad boys. Everyone I know who rides one has had just as positive an experience as you Vital fellers. Thanks for a tasty write up.

A size chart has been added to the top of this review in the product photos. Sorry about not having it on the site yet. We are finalizing a few products and wanted to wait to post a complete size chart on the site. Measure 6 inches above and below the knee cap for this size chart.

Due to the nature of photographing Enduro, you can really only chase the top men. If you hang around to wait for the women, then you would probably only get two goes at each and miss the finish. I would have loved to get more women's stuff. The very little I did get gets taken up with other photo commitments. It ate at me so much that I couldn't cover it, but the images just weren't there.
