To be fair, it is not entirely correct to state that it is "not certified for DH". Without wanting to go too deep, the "regular" bicycles helmet standards that this helmet IS certified to all include requirements for impact absorption, fit, coverage, and retention systems...more

By far the best one around, is even worthy enough to be in my profile pic. I'll be working on cleaning it climbing up, as well as down too, about 98% there except for three sections.

If you guys capitalize on the many possible filming methods with that Rylo, your following base will explode like you wouldn't believe.

Would be ridiculously stoked on this, both riders have so much potential in multiple disciplines (EWS, Dual Slalom, DH, etc). They would complement each other's riding styles and make solid teammates, definitely crossing the fingers for that to happen! ... more »

Also, overheard in the pits will be, "Do you go around that rock or jump it? No the other one, the bigger more grey one...err, uh...forget it."

Great work Vital, what a great review!

Just a shame that one of the newest dropper post concepts (using a dropper not as an afterthought, but rather as a structurally integrated member of the frame) did not find a place in this article, likely because it was not yet available when Vital...more

I guess that all depends what you want out of the bike. I'm loving my Trek Slash, but it has its own shortcomings in the way of a not-so-durable stock shock, knock block and some not-so-awesome Bontrager parts. But its a beast through and through. So incredibly...more

Sweet, thanks boys. First of all, no matter which bike I'd get, I'm pretty committed to throwing a Float X2 on the rear, due to it's tune ability and consistency. Considering this, plus the threaded bottom bracket and a full size water bottle compatibility (the latter I greatly appreciate) on the HT LT vs the Yeti, would you still rank the Yeti ahead? Also, feel free to bring in other models in the same class of 29" mid-to-long travel steeds for comparisons sake, such as the YT as mentioned below, or an Intense Carbine.

Not much time on the Norco, none on that particular Rocky Mountain. Lots on the Yeti.

I personally liked the Yeti a hair more than the LT (not fair to compare to the Norco as time was, again, limited). Reason I preferred the Yeti was the rear end was a bit more...more

Thanks for the thorough review, I've been looking for a solid one like this for quite a bit. Do you have any comments towards how the bike handles compared to other brands offerings? For example, the Norco Range, RM Instinct BC edition, and Yeti SB5.5c all seem like close competition.

@jeff.brines @bermsmasher The new bikes actually handle even better at low speeds than previous models. The idea behind "Speed Balanced Geometry" is that the bike's characteristics match the wheel speed. As such, at low speeds, it's quick and nimble, and at high speeds, it's stable....more

Hi Brandon, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts of how this rode and felt compared to the new Transition Sentinel you tested recently. They both have similar wheelbases.
