I’ve been riding one of these for the latter part of this year. I was a massive fan of the OG Scout and been waiting to get on this iteration for a while. I pretty much agree with everything said here but I think 4/5 stars is generous. To be honest I think this thing is too...more

Reading the list of features and technologies, it's pretty clear "MX-inspired" is meaningless marketing dribble. I remember when every Diamondback mountain bike was listed as being 'Built from Military-Grade Aluminum," or what the rest of us...more

He will be missed by so many, an icon of MTB. His parents raised a golden human being, wishing all of JL's family and friends some healing thoughts. To Claw, BBH, and Watts who were on that trip, f*cking hell, wish you guys some solace. #LongLiveJordie

The UCI takes a lot of shit (sometimes for good reason), but I gotta say the 2019 DH schedule was a fantastic variety of tracks. The new venues combined with the addition of more raw/tech sections at the existing stops made for near superhero/video game level performance. I...more

I'm not fan of the star ratings either. For example all the steep seat tube angled + plenty of AS bikes climb very well but then usually the enduro bikes are heavier than a XC bike and they need to lower the rating. Stars oversimplify too much.

The upper eyelet is turned for two reasons....more

Vital should consider ditching the star ratings. Of the fifty bikes Vital has recently reviewed, 46 were 4s or 4.5s (2 5s and 2 3.5s). Yeah, I know, modern bikes are really good. But telling us the vast majority are either "excellent" or "outstanding" isn't helpful, and it makes the ones...more

Loic at 3:45 was insane. Literally made everyone else look slow. Gotta give respect to Rheeder, super smooth and confident on the DH bike. Doesn't look at all out of place with elite WC racers.

JD and his lil Bro were iconic local kids and there were a lot of them, that many of us tried to nurture and give wings in this savage sport...but this industry can be brutal, miss a beat/result and often you're done. It's a shame we let go of talent before it's prime. Looking forward to this one, a...more

I would love to see Danny take it again, but what I'd love to see even more is Brook pull out all the stops and have the most savage run of all time.

Luca POV - holy hell. Fun to see him jump into the last woods at 3:48 - "whoa" [ping! rim or shock bottom] https://youtu.be/cyM5V_CD2MY Wish the live feed could do justice to this course. So stoked!

There has been a strong downhill race scene in the UK since the early 90's. This is where the likes of Peaty, Warner, and even Minnaar etc all cut their teeth before stepping up world cups. There are some pretty serious tracks in the UK and even without huge...more
