Looks like another one behind too. Both front triangles seem to have bottle cage mounts which tells me they're not just re-worked demos for the front triangle at least. Great papparazi work

Anyone else things a "Prototype" paint job as an actual consumer option would be hilariously cool? Do it as a water-transfer, so each one is a bit different...
Also, those beasts look ready for full sending, Spesh is on one for 2020.

That thing will obviously be released during Crankworx. Current Stumpjumer EVO geometry is the basis I think. Looks very much like I want to have it honestly. ;-)

I'd be all over it. The bikes in the photo look gnarly.

I wonder if the top tier model gets the coil shock seen here or will get an air shock instead. Bikes look sick, btw.

So I see this design as a Spec copy of the ?Gen V10 design that's trickled down to the rest of the Santa Cruz line. Take a tried and true suspension patent that's now generally available and upgrade it by lowering the center of gravity. Good on Ya. I really wonder how patent law works. Are there physicists and engineers at the patent office?

ones VPP the other Horst link or FSR.... the only similarity the shock is down low pretty much.

I think that was the point he was trying to make, take the best design of each, designed for the DH bike, then spread it across your lineup.
