But easton, it would give you a false peace of mind. There is no way to know how many impacts a multi-impact helmet can withstand before it is compromised. 1 really big one? 2 mediums? 4 small ones? The only thing a multi-impact helmet does is let you go on thinking your helmet is safe when in reality it could be toasted. That's a bigger risk, imo.

no way i would use a helmet again after a big crash even if the marketers said there foam could handle it. if you cant spend $$$ on a new lid after a wreck your in the wrong game. its your head man.

Pump those brakes brah. I do believe the reason for cutting down the trees was due to a beetle infestation that was causing damage and they wanted to stop/slow the spread to the neighboring trees.

I don't say what I said as a keyboard warrior, but rather as a local who rides both tracks. The track at Leogang awkwardly right angles down the mountain, which most likely has to do with land usage permissions, as mentioned above. But that doesn't change ... more »

Honestly the track is weird. It's a bunch of awkward "tech" sections (mix of both natural and man-made) that are linked together by flat traverses. It has crappy flow and feels totally disjointed. The mountain itself is super steep with lots of rad terrain, ... more »

While you're definitely not wrong, there is a reason companies manufacture in such a way in such places- most people are cheap and don't want to pay the price associated with "soulful" production process/locations. That's the sad reality that will not be disappearing.

I think you miss the point of their effort. It wasn't to reinvent the bike. It was to responsibly source a bike that has the capacity to run any and all standards available, allow for future innovations to mesh with the bike design. The huge news is that they sourced virtually everything from...more
