OUCH! Sam Hill Gnarly World Champs Crash Pic
There is no doubt about that. But that's racing. If you watch the replay, Sam hits that rock at about 2:53 and crashes at 2:54. The nearest in that section was Rat, who was about 1-2 seconds back before he's in the same spot, and Gee, the winner, was a good 2+ seconds back before he hits that exact spot. Sam never slows down, he keeps gaining momentum. Had he not crashed and Rat not have broke himself, Sam still would have won. There is no arguing that. But, again, that's racing. If you don't keep it together it's 'woulda coulda shoulda'. At least we all know he's back up to his blistering fast speed, and next season should be an amazing one to watch as well.

You run less PSI than the pro women ;-) I think it's a factor of speed, riding style, rim/tire set up. I don't think we jumped to any assumptions, but rather jumped on the silly assumption that Hill had an 'advantage' by using these.

Again, you were a trials rider. A completely different application with completely different psi requirements. Come on now. This weekend watch to see if any of the riders are slowly bippidy boppidy hippidy hopping down the course... In this article alone (let alone other interviews) "Pinch flats were almost completely eliminated, and the tires could be run at 1.5 bar (22psi) with complete confidence" Guys rarely went that low before for risk of flatting. In the 10s is a joke. This isnt' trials riding. You think rock crawling trucks run the same psi settings as pre runners or Dakar racing trucks? Also, I didn't 'discredit' shit. Stop making stuff up. It's clear I stated the advantages and stated that they did little, if anything' to help Sam win, which was clearly mentioned in the article, and which others took issue with as well. As someone who's been racing since 2001 I had my fair share of things to experiment with :lol:

@sintra 1: This is based on shawalbes press release, and interviews. They clearly state the 'advantage' is being able to perform a run, and it's help with preventing burping, which I listed as the real 'advantage'. There is no 'traction' advantage to be had from an inner bladder. The advantage is less flats at a desired low psi that downhill racers have run for over a *decade* (low to high 20s, depending on rider). 2: As per interview, and several other interviews, he's running mid 20s. that's reasonable, and not in the teens like some would have you believe. Tire deflection is very relevant, but you'd need to read a few books to understand that. 3: as above, it's still possible to flat, and with increase in speeds comes increase in forces applied. Again, zero assumptions. All based on information from interviews, my education and understanding of forces and basic physics, and the interwebs. If you want to play this game, might want to brush up on your 'science' so you can actually bring something to the table, because as it stands all my information is correct and you aren't stating anything other than antagonizing with zero credibility. @pancakeflathead that was the impression I got from it. Totally insulting.

Please list one assumption, other than the tire pressure (which is more of an educated guess). The rest are based on evidence and actual information from Schwalbe, which is available to you if you chose to read more than PB comments. The words from them were along the lines of 'it will help you finish your race'. Also, it's 'a lot'. Is alot some sort of an animal?
