Well yes, to be fair durability issues aside the freerider pros are easily the best flat pedal shoes I've used. I just think they could increase the longevity of them a lot if they made the stealth rubber layer 2-3mm thicker.

I've had the same issue with my freerider pros. The issue seems to be that the sole only has a relatively thin layer of actual stealth rubber on top of some sort of PU foam. This makes the shoe lighter, and you don't get water leaking through the pedal pin holes like you do with the old freeriders, but the downside is it tears pretty easily.

I can't believe this is 20+ seconds slower than the fastest timed training run. Race day is gonna be nuts!

Ah the good old car park test. Any coil shock will do that when you bounce the back wheel.

They added 1000$ for getting rid of the hump on their frames.

Physical track with a bit of urban dh at the end? My money would be on Marcelo Gutierrez. (Though you obviously can't count out the usual suspects like Gwin, Minnaar and Bruni)

Solid review. Loved the comparison video. Are you doing one for 27.5 bikes too?

P.S Maybe add shock stroke length to the suspension information?

Well, by that logic shouldn't flats also be called clipless pedals? Anyway, click-pedals would probably be the most straightforward thing to call them that actually makes sense...

505g isn't that light for a carbon rim either. Would have thought it could take more than that. What's the bead thickness?

There seems to be huge variations in how easily peoples feet freeze. I ride in those conditions with regular freerider elements with a pair of woolen skiing-socks on and my feet doesn't get particularly cold.

I do have a problem with the sole staying waterproof though. Over time the pins on my pedals will poke deep enough holes through the sole for water to soak through if i do hike-a-bikes in wet conditions. Takes something like 4-6 months for it to start happening. I guess the soles on these are the same as on the regular freeriders so they'll have the same problem?
