We came to the decision that for this type of helmet-was not the right system. We had it on early protos-but the Athletes did not want it on a competition helmet, very vocal about it. We had a different visor and completely different padding system as well, but the athletes were adamant about...more

Pretty psyched there is a little collarbone helper. I can't imagine ever landing on that spot, so might as well make it give a bit more for the ol' clavicle.

Are there any holes through the body of the insert? To drain the sealant from the rim to the tyre (over the tread) and back? You need it in both spots, on the tread to fill holes and on the rim to seal the bead.

I tried the race lever,with a saint caliper.

4 year old phone, screwed up camera, and trying to take photos without being able to focus it or look at the camera so I don’t look like a creep in the lift line.

Sorry for the crappy camera. Really good looking bike. High pivot, idler, massive front triangle with bottle cage bolts for whatever reason. Had an aluminum extension at the rear axle, probably to test different lengths. Full carbon everywhere else.

Usually not a fan of bikes with this style of design, but I really love the look of it. Any info on travel or geo numbers?

They're selling a shockless frame for $1799 so anybody with a 29er DH rig can drop money on that frame and a rear wheel and swap all their other parts out. Will there be a glut of 29", fast engagement rear wheels on the secondary market soon?

Should be interesting. Wonder if they'll bother with flats? Or if the rubber will be as good as 5Ten.

No new tech to post, but excited to see some of the new stuff in the WBP lift line tomorrow. If I see anything I'll post.

It's actually a pretty clever strategy considering they have probably been testing this thing for months without the need for disguise, and theres not a single spy photo or leak or anything like that.

I was smugly telling myself that my 2019 5010 is better because the purple makes it the sexiest bike ever..... then the video showed the new pink version. Haha looks awesome!
My 5010 is definitely the most fun I’ve ever had on a bike it really excels at everything from XC to gnarly downhills....more
