Could you let us know what your 'research' is based on? Do you have your own test lab?

Loic, Loris and Finn on Specialized for 2016
@BKDR It's based upon your comments that point towards validity only comes once you've won a race. Marketers and designers for the most part don't really care if someone wins on their bike or not. Their job is to sell the product they're paid to sell. In most cases that comes through sponsoring riders that are fun and personable, just like Loic. Obviously wins top it off, and Loic, Loris and Finn are all capable of winning a World Cup, as are many of the people in the top 20, but what sets these guys apart from many other names is their marketability off the podium. (Which is far more likely to happen than not). Anyway, it's great for the guys and it's a great move by Specialized. I am sure their European Gravity sales will grow over the next few years.

Loic, Loris and Finn on Specialized for 2016
I guess you can count out that World Champs win then, and all of the marketability that comes with the rainbow stripes. The rainbow stripes are $$$. Specialized are a big company, and they can use Loic's World Champs success to sell regular bikes to regular people. Sure, many DH fans will argue that a WC overall is a better prize to win than a World Champs, and I would agree, Gwin has a very strong record in that respect. Fact of the matter is, Average Joe will recognize the stripes, and he'll know what they symbolize. Danny Hart has never won a World Cup, yet he was prime real estate back in 2012 when he wore the stripes. Gwin is a great asset, and so is the Pure Agency team. They will both sell bikes for whoever they ride for.

Yeah because if you only get one podium at an Elite world-cup in your Rookie year you're such a failure... What a stupid comment.
