Chalk this one up to the eagle-eyed Germans. The boys over at were the first to spot Atherton Racing's new ride. Details are sparse, but dang(!), this thing looks gooooood.

Looks like 26. Old Fox 40, not RAD version on that test sled. New I Drive with new upper linkage to stiffen the frame but not alter the leverage ratio? I hope the linkage alters the rate somehow... That's a hellova lot of formed aluminum- looks like carbon.

It looks like they might have finally gotten rid of that hideous 10+ year old independent drive (i-drive I think they called it) bottom bracket/suspension arrangement. I'm all for that.

maybe it's because of the pivot location...but damn those chain stays look like they are a mile long.

Is it just me or do these wheels look - uhm, biggish? Might be 650B DH rig, which is going to be the big thing for PMB's pedally world champs course.

Nah, not bigger wheels... look at the tire clearance on the fork (unless fox has a revised 40 w/ 27.5 in mind. BTW those rotors looks dangerous. Like something from Shredder's helmet.

Comparing the Euro license plate (520mm wide) and the 26" bike rim (559mm wide), they are pretty close in the picture. I think it would be obvious if these were 650b rims (584mm wide) when compared to the license plate. Weird though why they are not running Saint rims.
