I’m a bit surprised the X-Fusion Manic wasn’t included in this comparison. It’s a top performer at a bargain price, with best-in-class reliability. It even has a couple of user reviews on this site (one of which was written by me).

Also, what’s the discontinued,...more

My 1st generation RF had issues with the saddle screws grinding into the post head. But it worked reasonably well for about a year... Until it started leaking air so badly I had to refill. The air spring every few days. When I serviced it I noticed there was no grease in the top cap. It was bone dry including the foam ring and I am pretty sure there never had been any grease in there at all. So apparently an assembly error. The complete lack of lubrication had resulted in the x-ring being worn out by now... And while 9point8 offers various rebuild kits and instructional material, RF doesn't and even removed previously available service videos from their youtube channel. Pretty disappointing for what I thought was a premium product.

This is the best bike test I've read in over a year, mostly because it is for DH bikes.

More DH Bikes please. Also, a third testbrider would be good, especially when combining the segment times to get a clearer picture. Two people is just not quite enough to...more

Vital! Another rad review! Love the thoroughness to these. Pumped that you chose to throw on the same tires this time around. I have a good feeling of how much work it takes to do these, but it would be rad to see these more often!

I know it's probably...more

Didn't know that even though I've been "following" both for the last year. I thought it might make sense, YT just lost two riders, two Athertons need a new team... I like my math easy.

Uhm...thats a 300 price increase on the Tues AL for nothing?!
WTF YT?
Theres literally no difference between AL and AL Base, just choose between crappy RS or crappy Fox suspension, but Kudos to YT and Fox for establishing the 40 Elite and X2 Elite as high end suspension
