It's the age-old question, but google is not providing any insight: How do we watch world champs if Redbull has made it unavailable in our country? I'm in New Zealand, and I can't seem to find who is showing it.

Added a comment about product review Yeti's Biggest 29er Yet: Meet the All-New SB150 8/27/2018 8:10 PM

I've loved the sb6 for the past three years (I loved it so much, when I sold the first one, I bought another one!) I ran a Fox X2 on the last one, and had the best mix of poppy playful, and plough smashfest - all while maintaining that awesome Yeti pedalling. I've always asserted that 27.5 is more fun in general, and that I couldn't find the same feeling with any 29er I've tried (quite a number). Well, two weeks ago I was extremely lucky to ride the SB150 for an afternoon, and all that has changed. The pedalling is even more efficient - getting out of the saddle and stomping on the pedals uphill, with the climb switch open (not engaged) had even more support than I'm used to, with barely discernible suspension movement. On a rooty technical climb, it was reactive and, well, easy - it just felt fun. Plus the front end was more planted - I was expecting to wrestle a wandering front end around switchbacks, but not at all. Then pointed downhill, the bike was fully active. The even shorter chain stays just make it a riot to 'steer with the rear' and cornering is even more positive. I was blind riding a steep trail with a few blind drops - one, to my horror, was a very off-camber wet landing, and the last was a 2.5 metre drop to almost flat landing. I thought I was screwed on those two occasions - I wouldn't have backed myself to safely ride out of either of them usually - but upon landing I felt miraculously centred in the bike, and weirdly safe. I had such a blast that I pedalled back up and hit them again with more positivity, and ended up whooping and shouting like I haven't done in a long while. It was magic. Super fun! I just ordered one.

Someone give Eddie a Redbull helmet (or similar) - he's a sponsor's dream!

Holy shit, Brook was insanely fast and smooth through that narrow off-camber woods section. Amazing RAW footage - I had to watch it twice!

Hey guys, always love the coverage on Vital, but I gotta say, I'm missing the slideshow - it's what made you better than the others. With this page I don't know which photos to look at to relate to the audio - and scrolling through photos is the reason I don't bother with the other place. You guys always have the best photos, the best, most candid interviews, and the best format in the slideshow for my money. Cheers!

This offering is just okay, only gets GR7.. leaving room for the next model, which should will hopefully be GR8.

Added reply in a thread Do tire inserts mean it's time to rethink tire design? 11/15/2017 2:26 PM

I would assume that tyre companies are right now working on incorporating foam into the tyres (if not, they should be). And, like you say, reducing weight in the areas of the tyre that the foam will support. Of course, I've been waiting for this for ... more »

Sad issue is that mtbers are being hateful and angry on bicycling sites. It's about as futile as someone venting about a rude encounter (ex. hiker yelling where's your bell) or evidence of misbehavior (ex. littered tubes, food waste) on the trail... the people they're wanting to give a...more
