Good handling? Your centre of gravity would be so high!

Check out the Downtime podcast with Dustin Adams from We Are One Composites and decide if you still want Chinese carbon rims.

Although these are "trail pads", it would be great to see more heavy duty options out there like the 7iDP Project and Fox Launch Pro D30 with a surface that actually slides when you hit the ground.

Why would you want a small, slow rolling tire? Seems redundant. Why not go all in for 2.5 and the most grip or just use another tread pattern altogether?

Wondering the same thing. Even on the stage. Surely he can install a tube in less than 7 minutes (difference in Hill and Richie's time).

It looks like a great wet weather trail tire, but I can't understand why the 2.6" versions are such hard compounds. I've read the dual compound is 70a centre and 60a shoulder. Can anyone confirm that?

That was a quality candidate for an Earthed segment! Ripping!

Commencal with Anti-Vibration Stickers

Head angle/ BB height/ wheelbase is first priority. Raising the crown might require sliding the fork legs up too, which would steepen the head angle and shorten the wheelbase. Probably not something they want to do for VDS.

Bar height is number two. Yes, a riser bar would be a better option.
