Not saying he is or isn’t out. But, to say he was on a “winning pace” is a bit gratuitous...I mean, yeah he managed to ride really well for that first 10-15 seconds of a 4:40 minute race.

Dh bike on Dt Swiss ex511’s Huck up front with wtb tough, Cush (with some material removed) in back with a vee rumba I’m playing with in gravity core. Normally wtb tough though. Usually 25-27psi up front, and 27-30 in the rear. I’m 155lbs rider weight ... more »

only 50 and 55 available in aftermarket. but you can always have a different travel spacer installed, shock just needs to be torn apart to install it.

It does not use two dampers. One will be a damper and one is just an empty shock body to mount the spring to when you see two bodies.

Unless there is something in the upper unit to control and dissipate energy being stored/returned by the spring, it’s still not a damper(or a second shock). Purely a spring, haven’t really gotten an answer stating otherwise. The video CFR posted a few weeks ago, Tom refers to it as a split system, same as here.
Now, if there’s a trick hydraulic or pneumatic bottom out in there, it could be argued as a position sensitive damper.
This bike broke the other website....it’s really not that complicated. You have a spring on one side of a conventional fork, and a damper on the other to control oscillation. This bike still has a spring on one side of a rocker and a damper on the other side to also control oscillation. It can just be broken into two separate parts or left as one when desired, depending on what the situation calls for.

Added reply in a thread Would You Pay to Watch More World Cup DH on Red Bull TV? 6/2/2019 7:58 AM

This. Not paying to wake up at 4:30-5am. Especially for Red Bull media. More races a year, more in the America’s, and a more stable platform to watch it on than red bull media player (which has gotten better, but still sucks in reality). All of that, ... more »

This 100% matches with my experience. I'm now running Huck up front and Cushcore in the back, and I'm very happy with the mix of rim protection and burp protection.

Looks like a more a durable protection than clear vinyl, not actually grip tape.
