First Look: Devinci Hendrix - Eurobike 2015
I disagree @Keyboardkilla, I had a 2014 GT Distortion, had a 66.5°. head angle with a 140mm fork. They are used as slope bikes by the GT team members, and are slacker than this bike (67.3-67.7°).

Enduro World Series Unveils 2016 Calendar
I think the reason many didn't enjoy it is because when it rained, the hero dirt turned into a water slide making it extremely difficult to stay on the bike, then they got the timings all wrong between stages 1 and 2 which meant that a lot of people didn't make the start gate in time for their run. Bit harsh to say the trails weren't good because the weather didn't play along, and a bit harsh to hate on the organisation skills of Kiwi's and Maori over a timing fuck up during thier first ever EWS event as if stuff ups like that haven't happened in other EWS events around the world. I agree there will need to be improvements in 2016, and I guarantee there will be. Could you imagine putting on a gig like Crankworx for the first time? No matter what nationality you are, or what race you align with, there would be teething problems so really don't appreciate the comments about the Kiwi way... The views aren't as good in Rotorua, but the trail network is IMBA Gold Grade. A standard Queenstown certainly hasn't achieved. Yet. I'm not saying Queenstown/Wanaka isn't epic, because it most certainly is, but Only Rotorua and Nelson have a gold star from IMBA... http://www.pinkbike.com/news/rotorua-gets-the-gold-from-imba-2015.html And just to negate your "I know people comment", I also have a few pro friends. They said Crankworx and the EWS round were outstanding.

"With all due respect" is not a thing you can just put in front of something disrespectful you say, and that makes it all okay. For that you should use "no offense". Like this - @Euskafreez, no offense, but too much French ignorance is no good...

They don't make the carbon one with those colours. That is black and turquoise, the colours of the 2015 Reign 2, not black and blue like the carbon ones Josh Carlson, Yoann Barelli etc ride. Also, as JSolman said, the up sweep on the top tube is on the alum model, the carbon version top tube goes straight into the seat tube. https://www.giant-bicycles.com/_generated/_generated_us/bikes/models/images/2000/Reign%20Advanced%2027_5%200%20Team%20Comp&Cyan%20(Tire)2.jpg

And just when the bike industry was beginning to fool us that you need a carbon bike over $5k to go fast, Marcelo goes and pulls it off with an alu Reign 2 frame. Full bike, $3k off the shelf, and you have what the pro's use. Nice.
