Aaron Gwin's Modified Specialized Demo
Interesting. Many moved away from this type of leverage curve. Selling the masses bikes with less progressive curves. The scalp for example has this supple to support to progressive curve. The pulse is toned down significantly. my pulse frame should arrive today to test against the scalp. Will be interesting for the normal joey. I have yet to test a frame to beat the scalp on average across tracks up here.

I hear that the person who made that track is so good looking it is scary. Plus he is gonna block off that cheat line into the chute again :)

Twice the speed... I ain't that slow... yet. I run similar pressures at Fort bill on my current bike. Had to run higher on my turner to avoid punctures. I am pals with some boys who are pretty handy at Fort bill. In the 4mins 4xtimes. I can keep up through sections but no way for anything longer than 30 seconds of the track. I am no where near fit enough.

Opinion: Don't Shoot the Messenger
Engineers would not change it. They would refine it, improve it and perfect it, all with the same key input requirements. It's what we like/want to do. Marketing and bean counters will change it. The bigger the company, the more they will want to change and have a pipeline of changes to sell to the public. It's how they make money. The challenge as an engineer is to refine and improve whilst cutting cost, therefore keeping the bean counters happy. The marketing people still want something new unfortunately.

Having ridden fort bill many times and Canada. I can say that there are tracks in Canada much rougher than fort bill. Especially when the WC comes to town and they turn fort bill into a pretty smooth track. I remember fort bill with the old top section and old full pinball. She was rougher then.

I would say with confidence that some... Enve rims may have had issues throughout the season. but I read that peaty only drank monster energy at the races, so it must be true.

New 7 Speed Hub from Atomlab
Is this required or fashion over function. My wheels are fine. My hubs are nearly fine. They just need steel free hub bodies for dh. My wheel diameter is fine. My hub width is fine. now invent a perfect hub/cassette for trail riding. Has the lower 7 of a dh cassette. The next 3 are obviously larger for climbing and and the outer has a planetary gear for an overdrive for steep climbs.

tobiusmaximum - This was not really an issue for the pro's as they have been running 2 tubes for a long time to counteract this effect that you talk about. Plus they run higher pressures so it is also not an issue. Lets not forget some of them have tyres with side walls and compounds that the public cant buy too. Beginner - Everything is soft (Tyres, spring rates etc.) Pro - Everything is firm (Tyres, spring rates etc.)
