I don't think it's a bad thing. Let them market the shit out of it, kind of like Kingdom Trails. Let them attract all roadies turned to dirt, the new folk in our sport and others. Let them distract from places like Pisgah, Utah, Quebec and other gems, ... more »

"Flow" around here (Ontario - Toronto area) often equates to wide, easy and boring. Its also unfortunate that it seems to be a buzz word with local groups - so much so that some clubs go out of their way to build "flow" trails. But for advanced riders, they are often boring, too easy and often not built correctly. They also happen to cater to the least skilled riders, so are most likely to be the most crowded. Like others have said, most flow trails should really just be called beginner ones.

But I shall stop there before this turns into a rant about local trail groups and their practices. :D

It could be the brand telling them to test it that way. Most of the demos I've been to, they usually just say to leave it in the open position.

Also interesting seeing how far back you've got the cleats mounted. Mine are more towards the front.

Is there a reason? Maybe I'll have to play around with mine...

I have a pair of these and they've been great so far. In the cold weather, with the better insole and liner and mostly rubber/sealed upper, they have been excellent in the cold weather.

I actually purchased a pair of the regular Hellcats before finding the Pros. The difference in quality is significant (as is the price).

There are only two things that I can nitpick about; 1. the inner material on the heal is odd. Not sure if its the sizing or the material, but my heals slip a little. 2, the shoes feel a little clunky compared to the Giro Rumble shoes that I purchased while waiting for the Hellcat Pros to show up.

I previously used a pair of Five Ten Maltese Falcon Race shoes, which were extremely comfortable and lasted for 3 seasons before absolutely falling apart (broken lace eyelets and soles seperating from the shoe body).

Shameless plug, but I have a size ten pair of Hellcat Pros for sale. I purchased the wrong size and wore them once. I now have a size 10.5. Send me a message if you're interested.... https://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/2249639/

If someone shows up to an event like friggin' Crankworx or a major (or really, any race...), they'd be dumb to think that there won't be pictures or video floating around. Like that picture of Nick Beer, if people are upset by the photo, why is there even a Devinci and Sony logo on it? Those logos exist for people to look at and to take pictures of. It should be fair game for anything at places like that.

If you're out on some random trail in the middle of no where testing a bike, sure, keep those private maybe. But then, there aren't photographers hanging out there taking photos. Ask the one dude that passes by to not share the picture.
