T9 is slower and way grippier. At least on hard, dusty, rocky and loose surface. So I would say T7 would be around the Maxx Terra.

I can confirm it is and Im definitely putting it off of my rear wheel. But the grip on front is insane!

I wish they were selling any T7 but they have nothing. End up with two T9 Butchers and really not sure if I want to run it in the back too.

Is that shock customized to fit? Size wise, frame looks like L. Damn, I want to update mine heavily. Sweet Shimano build!

Curious how they will survive with those after Brexit prices in EU. The base model is 4.7K EUR which is hardly comparable to 3.7K USD.

I never understood the bottom shock mount solution. How much pressure is there on these tiny bolts? Is there any advantage?

It seems like there is more and more 2021 bikes on Shimano. Exciting times.

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.
