Some clarification about details of the product for those who might be curious

-The back pockets are different from a standard road/XC jersey because of the stretchy, compressive fabric they are made of, which will keep cargo from bouncing out.

I feel this a great idea. I saw early versions of the swat shorts and thought.. "why did I not think of that" I hate with a passion riding with a pack and this is a great happy medium.

I commend Specialized for thinking outside the fannypack. Nothing wrong with a fannypack, though...

Not every bike has a bottle mount. Personally I hate riding with a pack.

Apparently I'm a minority here. I am excited to see a product like this. I avoid riding with a pack whenever possible; they raise your COG, retain sweat, bounce around, and, in my case, never fit my Jolly Green Giant torso. If the ride is under an hour and a half, I won't...more

sounds like you got the gist of it. don't think there's much else to get. did you expect to learn about the chamois pad? haha.

i think this stuff has its place. some packless riders may love it.

Reading through the comments, it seems a major concern in impaling yourself with the pouch contents when you crash. Personally, I have rarely crashed onto my back. The more my skills have improved the less frequently I do. I don't think I've ended up on my back in more than...more

Let's be fair, they are really killing it in the acronym department!

"All MTB manufacturers build their own frames on the assumption that the fork should rotate 360-degrees. This forces them to stretch the main triangle, inevitably compromising its own natural stiffness, contrary to that of road frames."

Four arguments on this statement. One,...more

Btw the ball breaker top tube being soo straight and the steep headangle we might see some roadies going down hard at the mountain in a bad way. Medic!!!!

I wonder how many Hi-Fives their marketing team gave themselves when 'creating' this bike and video?

Doesn't seem like they actually consulted engineers, or Mountain bikers.

Wow. What a pretentious, over-engineered, waste of time and money. This is a joke, right? I didn't finish the last part. What's the price tag? 35K USD?
