Interesting new format on the video, it's very informative to see the perspective from owners of previous models. A lot of details discussed that are never mentioned from other sites first ride reviews.

I hope vital would do a videos for jib trail bikes. Would be interesting to see this compared to the nukeproof reactor and yt izzo. Different bikes from polar opposite purpose form this middle ground type trail bike.

Rarely see a video of them on trail bikes. I wonder what their setup be if it's their main bike.

And yet both loic and fin rides a mullet. It just doesn't make sense financially to buy 29er and pay more for another link and rear wheel.

But I LOVE having a reason to walk in a bike shop and get handed the only free thing they have

I wonder why they don't sell the 27.5 option on smaller sizes. They already have the hardware for it. Is it simply that stocking all 29ers tyres and wheels are cheaper? Reviewing the Expert build was a nice touch for the consumers versus the bespoked Sworks.

Great review as always Brandon! They will be missed.

Would you mind comparing to the Pivot Switchblade. Two bikes that are pretty similar on paper. What I'm really looking for is something for those all day missions with lots of CO climbing but that will be fun on the...more

I don't think the credit should go to spez.
Credit to the video creators who presented it to the spez exec. I think harrison mendel was th DP, saw it on his insta. It was shot beautifully. Concept was very good, unique.

For us that failed analytic geometry class. Is it no go for running 27.5 wheels? i still think 27.5 is better for short legged folks like me.

Maybe it's time Vital do a comparo feature on this new FunDuro bikes. I'm also interested in the claims by some manufacturers ehem Commencal that 29 are as fun and playful as the smaller wheeled counterparts.

you're on to something. we kept it on the DL as much as possible, but definitely rode by plenty of people who didn't notice anything.

Just watched Jeff kendal weeds video riding this bike, and he had a piggy-backed shock on. watching their release video they are marketing this for fun jumping and light park riding and not a light xc riding.

How much compromise would it have been to fit a burlier suspension for people like me who tends to case jumps and rely on suspension for the rough fast descending. Swapping parts on an already costly bikes is not enticing.

The difference between Vital test members & PB testes is that most VitalMTB riders qualified for pro licenses. Trumpore, Howell, Wentz, Sven, Turman... So if a bike needs to be ridden hard to expose limitations or positives, I trust them far more than any other site

why? there's no live coverage of this race. what is it spoiling for you in this case? we don't put names in world cup DH results.

Vital, is there no chance for a 27.5 version? or will the geometry permit for a wheel swap without compromise to ride characteristics, ae BB height, head angle and set angle.
