By and large, yes, all the other bikes fared better in this one arena. It's a really challenging trade-off because the other side of this coin is such a fun ride. At the other extreme was the Spartan HP which paves trails but isn't so much a lively bike.

So true, Reece, Vergier, Pierron, Daprela, Nicole, and few others have clearly been struggling with their HP bikes, pretty obvious.

Am I the only one who finds $12,700 surprisingly “budget” for a Yeti e-bike?

It was definitely an issue on the V1 Warden, but a quick Google search you can see V2’s with X2’s, Bomber CR’s with large bottles on what looks to be medium frames.

Thanks John and Vital. Great footage. Never seen a track make the best riders in the World look so awkward in a few places. Excited for Sunday!
