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.

These multi-media articles are awesome! Please don't mimic the news outlets that post articles with both a video and written story but the copy in the written story is nearly a word-for-word transcript of the video dialogue.

In the eyes of a former journalist, this article was...more

+1 The mixture of photos and raw audio that helps tell a story has imo kept VitalMTB the best place for race and news coverage.

Way better than a edited video 99/100 times

Christ these cost more than a lot of mountaineering boots that I know take more expensive materials, and are made in the same area of IT.
