thanks axa. And I apologize for the rudimentary state of the website. We will have production bikes in April and the website will be a work in progress in the meantime. Expect a lot more pictures, action videos, etc. Hopefully it will all make it easier to understand. But nothing tells it like the ride, so maybe a few sneak peak test rides might appear here and there?

Thanks for sharing, Vital! Glad you guys are stoked on it. Since you're probably vid dorks like me, here's my process:
The sun had been up for about 30 min when we were dropping in. The footage from 2 hours later is much less impressive, in terms of footage quality.
Filmed (on GoPro H4Black) @ 2.7K Superview x 30fps. Protune, flat color & auto white balance. ISO 200 I believe, and -.5 exposure compensation (in effort to try to prevent highlights/sun from being completely blown out, but that tends to happen during compression upon uploading to the web.)
I reviewed and trimmed fat & GP studio and converted the files to the Cineform codec, keeping them at full size.
Edited in Premiere on a 1080p timeline with the footage scaled down. Did a really quick job of color correction in premiere.
I tried exporting in Media Encoder and Premiere Pro and quality seems equal. The export from Premiere is approx 1.2GB, and Vimeo compresses it to about 150MB... that's the step where it goes from looking super clean to "ok". Hope this helps people slay the internet.

You forgot the part about getting a flat at the top and then pinning it to the bottom on the bare rim. The manufacturers love that because those huge Interbike demo fleets are super cheap and riding over the roughest terrain on the planet with no tire does virtually zero damage to the rim. When you return the total'ed bike, make sure you let the manufacturer know how disappointed you were in the test ride.

Claudio's previews are like an appetizer, but RAWs are like having your pudding before your meat. They're so good it almost feels like you're getting away with a crime.
