I had this conversation with the guys at Eminent. I mentioned in the article that they settled on the numbers as a happy medium deliberately. They looked at more 'progressive' numbers, but didn't want to sacrifice a great daily driver to align with the longer, lower, slacker trend. It has a shorter front end than what I've been riding, but I was at home pretty quick.

That's right. It doesn't rattle however. A little moto foam or electrical tape would seal them off completely if that's what you're after, but they're tight enough as is in my opinion.

Typically flat riders ride more rear spring (because they're weighting their feet more and leaning back more) and clip riders run more front spring. I used to bump up two clicks of low speed in my fork when I switched to clips. Now I just run clips all the time cuz I finally...more

That's my fault actually. I had zero pad left on my rear brake at that point. They don't squeal like that when there's actual pad there...

Fair enough. Speaking personally I would say that the label doesn't mean much to me if it performs as advertised, which it did. I'm hoping to get my hands on one to ride at home.

We noted the same thing. When we asked Canyon's engineers to label the rear end, they defined it as Horst-link nevertheless.

Not too interested in the tires, but the quality of Vital's reviews continue to impress. Great detail, relevant comparisons, reasonable suggestions for improvement, keep up the great work!

"Finally, we will compare athletes improvements with Halo Sport to their historical data to see if any significant differences exist". The control data that we'll be comparing to is testing results from the past few seasons, on a similar training plan, using identical testing protocols.

Certainly! It will be interesting to see how it plays out, both with the review and potential future uses. I think I'm just a little cynical, especially when there are pro athletes putting stickers on their frames to dampen vibrations and wearing magnetic bracelets that are...more

I agree with what you're saying - a scientific conclusion can't be made. You're bang on that there are too many uncontrolled variables. That said, we've got a few years worth of data to compare to for either rider, their training programs won't differ much from previous seasons. If their long-term improvements are more significant we can infer or suggest that it had something to do with HaloSport, but we can't prove it.

Either way, there is evidence from a number of studies to suggest this is worth checking out. Worst case scenario, it won't make a difference. Best case scenario, it works.

So far so good, even after a few days of rock flinging in the bike park and a few shuttles. Peeling will take time, but I'll update if anything appears.
