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....

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.

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).

Canadian kick out? Should be called "ground whip"...

My favorite "hit" from Rampage this time around. Really though his line was impressive... man that's huge.

Great shot.

I dunno if I'd ride it. If it's just flat trail w/o much tech or fun lines, probably not. I can deal with exposure, but wouldn't ride a trail solely for that.

What does EWS, BME, or the other successful Enduro races gain by UCI involvement? They all seemed to go off pretty well last season, they all got great press, lots of photos and created quite the buzz, all while the UCI ignored it.

Pro points standings is a good point, but what if there is no UCI Enduro standings, because there are no UCI enduro races? Will EWS standings be the new "standard"? Could that be a good thing? Enduro seems to have a solid driving force behind it, with the chance of defining its path from within, could that be a good thing too?

How do the other Enduro promoters feel about it - that would be a good feature here.

Don't know the guy, or maybe I know him just as well as anybody else here - who doesn't really know him. From what I've seen, he's talented, has guts, passion and was invited to Rampage. I don't think anyone else commenting here was invited?

His resignation is more a reflection on everyone else, rather than him. I think it took more courage to make the wise decision. Yes, too bad he came all that way and backed out. Too bad for who though?

Maybe people just assume how "easy" Rampage and big mountain is. My opinion is that its a HUGE mental game, almost as big or bigger than the physical game, and I think many people take it for granted. Look how many skipped the large portion of the sender, for instance. We're spoon fed video edits of glory and success, but we don't experience the complexity of emotions and decision making that goes on with these riders.

I think the prevalence of Rampage the last couple of years may not be such a good thing.
