Infinity Pedal's Simple, 360-degree Engagement Mechanism is a Fresh Take on the Concept
This deserves every bit to be extremely successful and the next step forward in clipped-shoe interface. 1) I'm sure if people wanted, they could make the spring tension much higher, to give those people a bit more stuck-on feeling. 2) Also, I know some people are thinking of the lack of "platform" for applications like DH. However, I would think reinforcing the plate underneath the shoe and making the middle part of your foot/shoe very stiff would help accomplish -Part- of the issue. 3) I think for DH, like the Mallet DH, a super thin pedal body, like the Older-Gen Canfield Crampon + a slightly bigger cylinder clip-on would still be beneficial. The fact that it's not like the Mallet where there are only 4 specific spots to clip-on, this cylinder, no matter what area is clippable.

Opinion: Why the Mountain Bike Industry Isn't Going To Listen To You
Best way for a consumer to make companies listen, stop buying it. Nothing changes their direction more than money.

Prototype Magura eLECT Rear Shock - Taipei Show 2014
@Waterwater, I think there is a difference between overdone electronics, a concept that is so complex and wayyy over the top it's just pointless, VS. simple electronic-assistance technology, something that keeps things minimalistic while increasing efficiency and retain the bare human element. We definitely have been seeing a lot of crazy electronics, but I think something like this is pretty simple to begin with. Just firms up or opens up the shock's ports depending on attack angle and accelerometers. Imo, would help because it can be perfect for trails that have tons of varying terrain, instead of just sticking with one preset for the shock or getting off bike for each section and dialing it in, can have a shock that just simply reads the inputs and adjusts according, which in my books, could be a very useful and nice feature given the read-outs and adjustments are accurate.

First Ride - SRAM Debuts DH Specific 7 Speed Drivetrain
Tells us a "Simple Drivetrain is the Best Drivetrain." Then brings in tons of Sram-Market'esque terms, introduces tons of new technology and products that have been uniquely integrated into this confined system that requires you, the consumer, to switch into a more complicated + expensive endeavor. "It is better and more accepted because of its' simplicity." Lol. 7-Spd automatically must mean it's simple right? Just gotta flush/swap out all of your previous drive-train, which a few moments ago, according to them more gears and more complexity was better. :D
