Cool photo, gives a really good look at that mystery shifter, also Aaron running a coil when he prefers the X2? Maybe that is why they have it covered up, new shock for him and Fox, or doing telemetry stuff. Or both.

"...Aaron Gwin (YT Mob) looked fast and smooth all weekend, but was let down by a broken crank on his final run."

Aaron gwin just said in his ig story that him and Neko we're off to a photo shoot about some new bikes. It's probably what we've been seeing.

thats how Minnaars bike was covered when Marshy was taking it to be cleaned at Windrock ( although he used a black trash bag) and it was definitely for protecting the fox testing equipment. And all the fox dudes were headed to Cali the day after the race so it would make sense. protect it from the dust

Why not just look at the photos more thoroughly and compare the supposedly new bike to the current one?

vs.
https://ytmedia.azureedge.net/image/thumbnail/02_01_TUES_CF_PRO_RACE_liquidmetal_34heck_1920x1168.jpg

The link is much more streamlined, same goes for the seatstay around the brake area, the rear pivot is in a different position, the chainstay surrounds the seat stay, not the other way around, there's a cable exit right under the front pivot of the link, the brake mounts don't appear to have threaded inserts, the bend in the downtube appears to be lower down.

Again, more streamlined, not bent link, no bolts visible, downtube bend in a different position.

2 days and no one has mentioned the new pivot ?

But mostly it reminds me of the Turner DHR (lastest version with dw link), aside from the fact that the Pivot looks so much better

don‘t know if it‘s the 2018 torque or an upcoming strive

Classic 4 bar Horst Link as a new bike. It seems that the best suspension system has been build 25 years ago. And then when I look at that GT I do not understand why Canyon changed their Strive.

Wow! Interesting!
I would say on a racing point of view that the torque does not fit for EWS. Maybe a spectral? But 140mm for the high speeds sections and rough terrain of this course seems a bit too light.
A new strive seems legit as they have changed most of their lineup this year. We will see but (personnaly) it would be great to make the comparison between this Strive, the Capra and the Tyee! (I think I love German bikes ^^)

I believe that's Joe Barnes (I think that's a Dude's sticker on the lid) and on his instagram he has been saying that he is riding the Torque a lot and that is what he is racing here I think

Damn I am not a social addict enough! Good point, then it's the torque. Interesting anyway to check how such a bike can handle an EWS, performance wise!
