Dude i go thru a pair of snowboard boots pretty much every season. My last pair was $550. Its not that big of a deal. Running shoes are changed more frequently.

I simply can't comprehend how people can complain about longevity of shoes, when at $150, they are less than the average set of grippy tires. I have gone through a set of tires in a week of racing or riding in Whistler, and well, nobody seems to complain about that. Why is one product at, at...more

I get that they were trying to go for a clean cupsole like sideview on the outsole. But putting the heel and toe lugs in essentially a bathtub is going make those SHIT when it gets wet.

Looks like they got the same designer who did Ion's shoes to do those new ones.

Also WTF on those flats. Go get some welgo mg-1's for half the price and way lighter. Easily half the weight if you get the ti upgraded spindle

Hope he succeeds, and I'm interested to try a pair of the flats even though I'm not totally sold on the looks.

BUT sspomer, "a designer who spent years creating products for others,"...his linkedin doesn't have a design title anywhere in his history...that'd be like calling the armchair 'engineers' on forums actual engineers. Seems like the dude has product management histroy buttoned up though.

Screw comparing it to the Nomad 3, tell me how it compares to a VP Free. Seems much more similar to me(though they never made a VP Free this slack, AFAIK.)

THIS EXACTLY. Looking at the specs it looked more like an early 2000's Freeride bike. 170MM Travel, 2.6" tires, 180mm rear post mount...

"so we won’t go into any long-term durability speculation here. We plan to keep running the brakes for a good few months now, and we’ll come back to update this review when the time comes."

This is the kind of zero BS that Vital has been always fantastic at and I hope it keeps it up.
