Nice review. I'd just like to say that the same size issue may exist in the men's version of these pads. My 661 Kyle Strait pads, and other 661 pads were always size large. However, the size large RaceFace pads were are just a bit ... snug. I can still wear them as they articulate so well once I have them on. But I IF I ever buy them again (which is likely, I love these pads), I will go for the XL size.

Valid points, no doubt. The "Problem" is not with Vital's idea; the voters skewed the test in the wrong direction. Had Vital just chose the more reasonable components for the lowest $$$ amount, I'm sure the price wold be much more reasonable. A product manager wouldn't spec a budget bike like this either (The Kona, and Airborne Toxin are great examples).

Not Vital's "fault" - the trendy Voters jacked the price up....

That's what's really confusing about the article. I wouldn't call a $4400 build a "budget" or "value" build. That's out of reach of many people. I realize the people voted, and picked the components, and in most cases picked reasonably, but as a complete build cost total, it...more

That's true, but also brings into question whether this is really a budget build. Not sure I know anybody who's looking to build a DH bike on a budget, yet can drop $4400, but wouldn't buy one of the many complete DH bikes available for that number or less. Even if you can...more

A great deal, however; Domain fork, Code brakes, MTX wheels (not bad...) Kage shock, bash instead of a guide, and (probably single ply) Minons. Great deal, but not really comparable to what's being built here.

That's so true. We've heard plenty about the benefits of larger wheels. How often do we see 26" marketed for its better agility, acceleration, lighter weight..... I was excited about 27.5 when it was another option. Too bad it's looking like we...more

If they put ANY imagination in to marketing it, 26 would sell just fine. So funny (and ironic) how they push all that technical crap about wheel size (any wheel size)... yet despite all the benefits, a 26er still comes out on top (well, at least this time, haha).

A "bri" flip? What kind of stupid BS is this? He just tailwhipped his bike at a different angle... I'm down for different variations of tricks because it keeps things interesting but this "world's first" trend is absurd. You don't see people calling a dumped 360 a "hurculean...more
