Meh, max grip is so tacky the tires don’t last worth a damn. The difference between them and terra is negligible really. There’s a reason they don’t make many options in them.

Would like to see someone put a crank based power meter and a hub based power meter on this bike. See what the losses are due to the idler (obviously calibrate on a normal bike first).

Bike looks fantastic BTW.

I like it, but wish it was more expensive.

wicked bike. i could see resetting fork to 150 for better climbing angles, but why bother with the rear shock? prolly spendy to do as well. what size frame? no problems running the extra length shock stroke?

these look amazing. no bullshit skater crap, proper technical footwear for outdoorsmen who ride bikes. who fucking skates, what are we teenage urban boys? winter shoes are tripe, proper winter socks such as Goretex or Bridgedales with draining shoes are going to be the bomb. thank dog 5.10 is getting its head out of its ass under the leadership of Adidas.

Not sold on the look, but I like the fact that those two pairs are filling in their offer. The Trail Cross LT will serve me well in the summer time. Current 5.10 aren't really breathable …
One thing for sure,...more

I like the black lows. I've never loved Five Ten aesthetics and had some shoes from the Adidas mountain bike line in the past that I thought looked better. I also liked them more for general use off the bike,...more

Fields of trees to navigate is kind of bonkers. Looks like a great place to wad it, HARD, or potentially get crafty and make up some time. These are the best downhill riders in the world and they should be able to pick a line through anything, right? Kind of exciting from a...more

great review, worthy of Vital. i've still yet to try Cush Core. do you get a lot of similar benefits from CC in the front tire?

"We worked hard over the last three years to combine the features of our competitors, like wider rim widths and better engagement, with the impossible-to-source replacement parts and terrible reliability you've come to know and love from Mavic."

absolutely agree. Very bouncy tires will benefit more (Maxxs exo, Sch snakeskin, Continental Der K/Der .. but when you change from one of these to DD/DH or Sch SG there is a world or improvement in damping/traction from the tire alone... Not saying that cushcore wouldn't be better,...more

Interesting. My only small grumble is that a tyre does have its own damping - from the rubber.
Rubber dampens both the carcass and through the tread itself. Different compounds and treads make easily noticeable differences in tyre dampening
