Interesting how many people are focusing on the DW part of the equation. Not taking anything away from the man, they myth, the legend, but I see the (much) bigger deal here being the ability for the Athertons to quickly prototype different geometries, getting a bike to fit them better than anything they've had in the past.

While my previous post focused on the questionable business sense of all this, as a racer, I can't think of anything better than being able to 3D print stuff that vastly alters the geometry allowing the rider to quickly go through a few iterations without new jigs/molds etc.

I'd take a single pivot that fits me perfectly over the most advanced bla bla bla suspension design that is run-of-the-mill fit.

Cool product for the right application.

KS Lev Ci 30.9 125mm dropper is 385 g however just for accuracy sake. I have been running the 175mm version of the KS Lev Ci for about a year and besides the crappy OEM lever (replaced with a Wolf Tooth, which admittedly adds a few grams) it's been flawless.

It is available on the site last time I checked, you can ask frm any questions I do not work for them. Since you work for bike yoke, can you tell me where / who does your testing? I have seen the fmr at cape epic, marathon and xc wc, etc... It is much lighter and 60mm is what pro xc and marathon use.

My Heart says yes, but if there was money on the line, I'd place my money elsewhere.

Different disciplines for sure. However, Loris just won the Trans Cascadia in pro with Luca Shaw in third. They both beat last year's winner, Geoff Kabush who got 5th. He is no endurance slouch. DH isn't enduro, but the top level pros are in great condition.
