I've broken 3 alloy frames over the years, two steel. Zero carbon. I worked in a shop for a decade..numerous cracked alloy/steel bikes
Everything can break and crack. Maybe because more people are riding carbon noe? The fear of carbon is unfounded.

My last 5 DH and trail bikes have been Carbon. Zero issues. None have been YT though...

The V10 (not even the CC model) with pretty much the same build is $8200, new Demo (alloy) with same build kit is $6500. Demo 8 carbon frame is $4k, Trek just marked the top end Session down to $7600 from $8400 so it's right in line with Carbon competition at same or similar build spec. Intense Pro build is $10k, $7700 for the next line down, Only thing that really is that level and substantially less is Commencal at $5500 for the 2020 Supreme similar build. On the Devinci Wilson, similar build at $6600. I don't count YT since they are always sold out and come with e13 garbage.

Is the oil slick for the DH cassette pro only or can us mortals buy one?

Right tool, right job. These new 5/10's look like they will be a great trail shoe. The 'skate' shoe is a generic term for skate, BMX, bike shoes. Majority /BMX'ers/MTB riders who wear the 'urban boys' shoes can most likely out ride the majority of people bitching about a style. Pick what you want, ride and be happy. Why be a dick a bout it?

How so? They are actually in stock now. Quality seems to be a touch better on the ones I have used, the same models most of us like are still here with a few new ones such as these....you can still get your 'skate' 5/10's

Of all the carbon rim options out there, IF (and that is a big IF) I were to go with carbon rims, this would most likely be the option. Folks saying Zipp has mostly done road/tri stuff...Zipp has been doing carbon longer than most anyone out there. They know a few tricks. Curious...

Looks to be a very thin layer of paint, therefore, it shows all the contours of the raw material. Keep in mind these are all still prototypes apparently

Things are a bit more rational /civil on the Vital comment section. Pinkbike bros will be losing their collective sh*t tomorrow once this hits the main page.

I just got a pair for my new DH build. Agree...so sexy. That said, they will be ridden hard once Winter Park opens up (and maybe Angel Fire)!
