@nismo325...check out the specs for 27.5x2.5 tires...https://www.maxxis.com/catalog/tire-468-140-minion-dhf. they make only one non-WT option...that was actually my point of asking the question. i like maxxis 2.5s. 471s are a good rim....

i fully understand wide rim + WT. 100%. got it. i understand the physics/idea in play here.

i guess my real question/rephrased is: i, as a regular everyday rider, want to run a 25mm inner width rim. would maxxis recommend WT or strictly against it?

i guess what id like to know (and im not expecting to get answered) is did athletes ask for a tire, it was created, then WT was "invented" post to sell it to us normal folk? or did maxxis come up with the moniker of WT and athletes dont want to run 30+ mm inner width rims.

it just doesnt make sense to me

Formula forgings all come from the far east too, breaks and lowers. Same with race Face rims. Guess where the tyres were made, the shock too. Nice bike, the far east schooled the west in quality without them we'd probably still be running square taper cranked on 2k bikes.
And fancy watches were just marketed...more

Awesome awesome bike! Just curious why you tried to “avoid parts coming from Far East?” Claiming to avoid Asian parts doesn’t add to the greatness of your bike. Also, most of your drive train and a lot of the parts that Formula use are directly from the “Far East.” I also think a lot of the parts of your other...more

i think it's just been a matter of logistics and timing. it's not intentional. post-race is hectic for everyone there.

Why not just go with some grade 8's for strength?

Thanks for the props! Can't promise it's something we'll always be able to do, but we really felt like it was all the bike needed this time around and we were stoked that it was a fairly small change from an engineering standpoint - it was that extra little bit...more

carbon does stay wetter than aluminium so dampening is a advantage

Haha, I was gonna say that, too! If you look closely, the Banshee has two wheels and the Specialized has...yep, two wheels. Copiers gonna copy.
