Just a few days ago I saw another bike that had a very similar routing but I can't remember which bike that was... I think I saw it in a video?

Well, this photo here might be a discrete hint of you being wrong, if I may.

looks like some great photos of that new Maxxis mud tire on Jesse's winning rocky from the weekend. I could have used that thing a few times this summer...

Yea, that newly design Maxxis Shorty(?) should be available soon (I hope).
Have seen it on a number of bikes now

New Shorty?:

Loic and Finn have obviously been on Maxxis for the past season or two. So I'm assuming that this new new tire Loic is running is another Maxxis. It's Sharpied out so it looks to be another Maxxis.

On a related note, one of the tech editors from another site has mentioned that his favorite wet conditions tire is still under embargo. So it's likely one of these two tires.

Here's a couple of more closer looks at the Maxxis. Jesse and Bernard were both running it at Zermatt (as I'm sure many others were as well). My bet is it's not a shorty replacement. I posted a few pages back that Jordi Cortes commented on his you tube video that it's not a shorty. Possibly a full mud spike vs a cut down version. Definitely looks to be the tire that Blenki was running earlier in the year as well. Photo

No hot patch on the tire in the pictures so no name yet. Although, it looks like on the opposite side (side not facing the camera) there might be some white graphic so maybe a hot patch on that side.

Looks like a short spike mud tire. VERY similar to a Specialized Hillbilly with some modifications. I think the concept is really good. A mud tire without huge long spikes that make them un-rideable on roots/rocks.

I love the look of this thing, would make for a great shoulder season tire around these parts...

I can see some differences in the image , but the description fits a Conti Der Baron.

Seems like an Enduro bike with the Dissent kinematics - maybe the super enduro bike someone was talking before...

I actually remember an ooooold video of Nigel riding a frame like that with a trail bike fork...

Looking at the comments of the post he says it’s a short shocked single crown dissent with a dropper and wide range drivetrain. Probably inspired the devs at NP and they’re just finishing up the real version

Norco teaser again. This time with a single crown... Photo
