Guess he doesn't follow the dope tour I mean the pro tour...

That bike looks sick! First bike over the 1300mm wheelbase! If I ever got a 160mm travel bike I'd have similar geometry (same headangle) though with a shorter toptube seeing as I'm 180cm.

Yeah it is kinda like Nuetech but for bikes. Can't wait to try it.

If you nick the procore (highly unlikely I believe) the excess air will go into the tire thus allowing you to ride home. More likely to nick the thin tire which allows you to ride home with a squish tire if the sealant doesn't seal it.

it's adding a tube and a smaller tire within your existing tire. But it's better than regular tubeless because it won't burp the tire and it makes tire compression more progressive thus making your suspension work better. And super traction!

Single ply tire + procore system + sealant weighs less than DH tire with XC tube or UST tire with procore system.

That was what I was thinking! Is he running a special wider rim? Maybe, seeing as there are currentlly no 27.5 deemax ultimates on the market.

He didn't say that Sam Hill only won because he was running the procore system he said it gave him an advantage. Give me the procore I STILL won't win a worldcup! As for "race spec" vs procore the difference in weight isn't 200g more (per wheel) but much much less given that you no longer need to run a DH casing tire (i.e. you can run singleply casing) not to mention the massive traction advantage of running low pressure.

Yep and you can run lighter tires without the risk of pinchflatting! I'm looking forward to testing it out!

As mentioned in previous articles about the schwalbe procore system an internal width of AT LEAST 23mm is needed. Thus ANY rim with an internal diameter of 23mm or more is compatible. Now I just wish they made a schrader valve version...
