I enjoyed reading this. Oh, and the hip jump was cool too, I guess. ?

Minaar spoke about this too in the WC. That people get obsessed with finding gaps/hucks/tricky lines, and it was implied that it was more ferdaboyz than actually being a good consistent way race. This has been a great thread with some interesting reading. ... more »

I think thats why Sam is good. He's so confident with his speed, he knows he doesn't have to ride the ragged edge to win. Jesse is kind of like Richie, except Riche just breaks parts whereas Jesse keeps breaking himself. Neither are sustainable, and ... more »

And you're certain it was a pinch not a tear? On a seperate note, do you feel more protected with a DD cushcore rather then a straight up DH tire?

Added reply in a thread How would you stop Richie from flatting? 8/16/2018 12:35 PM

I'd be interested to see what the method of flatting was. Sidewall tear, rim destruction, tear in the tread, pinch flat etc. I wonder if he could pinch flat with cush core.

having just go-pro'd this for EWS practice, its insane how much speed he carries, even across that very first part before it dives into the woods. No idea how...

Simply put, your expectations of how long a shoe that is as grippy as a 5.10 (head and shoulders above ANYTHING else on the market) should last is out of touch with reality. Comparing the sole grip/wear to tires, a good set of sticky tires (NOT Conti Black Chili) last weeks at best. Of course...more

Maybe try the new impact pros. A little heavier and wider, but seem sturdier.

Some of us want a shoe that more closely resembles a skate shoe rather than a hiking/approach shoe. Aesthetics are highly subjective.

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 love that we have options. I also love swanky rad stuff. Cool to see Shimano doing something new!

That said, the (bigger) story to me right now is just how much performance you can garner for very little money. Its rad. 10 years ago there was such a big gap between...more

Great to hear Mitch's take on this kind of track. Yeah we all love to see the best in the world being challenged,but track design is going too far many times IMO.
Not a problem for most of us,but the enduro bike development is getting far from all-mountain and it's...more
