it's a chain tensioner that folds backwards? when you hit something it will move...... just like it's designed to do against the chain growth. when something hits it, chain goes slack for a second, roll on and it will spring back

Orbea Loki 2016: First Look
this bike isn't for tarmac, it's for rough surfaces. a rough fireroad would be faster to ride on a mountain bike (even a rigid one) than a cross bike, because you can allow the tyres to deform on the road. I notice this with my cx bike, which is why i run low pressures (as do most racing or riding cyclocross). second point, a wide tyre will have a volume far higher than a narrow one. the contact patch doesn't go up at the same rate as the pressure (while we're on simple physics facts) so you get the traction advantage of a lower pressure without the disadvantage of the proportionally increased rolling resistance. YES it would have a larger contact patch than a 26" at 40psi. But i know which one i'd ride faster in 90% of situations (the remaining 10% being the road to the trail)

the up to date wisdom on rolling resistance is that less pressure is better... you don't waste energy bouncing the bike upwards over lumps. on a rough surface, a plus sized tyre at those pressures will roll far more efficiently than a 26" at 40psi. while we're explaining things to idiots... even roadies are starting to find this, switching to larger softer tyres on most of the tour bikes this year.

Video: A Lesson in Shredding By Andreu Lacondeguy
don't forget that this probably took a lot of takes... 1 run takes a different kind of speed

EWS Official Video: Tweedlove Highlights, Rd 3, Scotland
there should be... but I can't see there being 3 stops in the british isles... so it may take the place of this or ireland every few years?

Scott Voltage FR 710 - Review
I think the more extreme the race bikes get, the more of these we'll start seeing.... There's already the uzzi, the NS soda, the Voltage, the banshee darkside, the tr500 (in 180 mode) the session park, the commencal FR... I'm sure there's more!

Scott Voltage FR 710 - Review
wouldn't be able to run the anglesets so much without a straight 1.5" headtube. aaand 135 spacing to keep the rental companies happy
