Looks nice but the geo is a bit too conservative – tall ST, short CS, short WB sad

I'm way more interested to hear the story why they actually invest in their own suspension. They use RS, Fox but also it looked like that they went big with DVO at some point, just to only drop them a year later?

Try Michelin rubber. From my experience its same grip as Stealth. Tested on Northwave shoes. Plus they are more comfy inside.

Coming from Rune V2 and currently riding 29' with 1237 wheelbase and 445 chainstay, I have to say it is superb balanced. Not easiest for wheelies, but so good in terrain. Titan looks ace. Just a bit surprised by lack of RS shocks and price tag.

I guess opposite to Masters Champs, they simply have to put some cap on the number of elite riders, otherwise there could be potentially too many riders? So that's why they run qualification, so even if there is less then 80 riders total, you have to qualify.

So what happened to GOAT? First, he landed 7th place but later he is shown DSQ (still Q as protected).

Sam on a raw frame. Possible prototype or a custom size to match his riding style while keeping 29" wheels?

It almost feel like that Demo is designed with that wheel size in mind while Saracen was butchered from original 29" so there is a bigger gap – wheelbase (visually).

Also some interesting info – wheel size X rider height

1st place – 29"/27.5" – 180cm (Loic)
2nd place – 29" – 190cm (Greg)
3rd place – 27.5" – 167cm (Troy)

AL is here definitely for quicker testing. Same with Stump EVO which arrived first in AL to test the market. As for other parts, maybe just the preference of riders / what is available by their sponsors / what makes most sense for DH race. I can image that AL bars are here in case of crashing and still being able to get on bike and finish which would probably not happen with carbon bars.

Not a big fan of fat headtubes and that shape that is created after further into the frame, but overall it looks nice. And some smart things on frame such as that stash or placement of bottle holder into the frame to use the space. Looks a little bit short to my taste but I did not ride it so... However no idea why so much hate here...
