Spotted: Cube's New Carbon Downhill Bike - iXS Test Session
" Cube Two15 HPA in June 2015 and it was the brand's first foray into the downhill bike market." Thats some mistake, Cube has DH bike at least one design before that, for example here is 2012 model - https://www.thebikelist.co.uk/images/models/Cube/2012/TWO-15_12/Main.jpg

First Look: Fox's New Float X2 & DHX2 Shocks - Pond Beaver 2020 (Updated With Video)
yes, ofcourse there are some ways how to get CS on DHX2 shock, but it costs extra money or personal effort. What i wanted to say in my first post is, that new shox, not custom made, dont have CS in 250 lenght. If you need CS or not its another question, which i dont want to open right now.

First Look: Fox's New Float X2 & DHX2 Shocks - Pond Beaver 2020 (Updated With Video)
Capra (and couple of other non-DH bikes too) is using 250×75 mm shock, basically almost all shocks in that lenght doesnt have "ClimbSwitch" :(

Video: The Aluminium Propain Rage Has Its Sights Set on Bike Parks
You can easily run original Spindrift at 196 mm of rear travel without affecting geo and pedaling behaviour (if keeping sag as for 180mm rear travel) just by removing shaft spacer in shock.

Filthy Phil Attacks Whistler - Video
I have Spindrift from beginning of this season and i can say, that in uphill is fully comparable with enduro rigs. Before i had Specialized Enduro EVO 26´ and even before NS Soda. From all that bikes Spindrift is most uphill friendly bike... ...and most DH superior too. For me, killer combination. I can easilly roam around in countryside and if i will meet bikepark or even DH track, trully rage beggins... :p ...i allready lent Spindrift to some guys, which were thinking about Spindrift as next bike and they were surprised too by pedalling ability and on DH they were satisfied too, they said.

Honestly, with the Climb Switch ON its pedalable pretty well, you can compare it to enduro level bikes. Without CS hard to say, bcs my shock setting its pretty cusion-like. But still its comparable to Giant Reign or similar. Its actually my most pedalable bike by far, but i owned only 180mm bikes (NS Soda, Specialized Enduro EVO) which were 2-3kg heavier also. If you want pedalable downhill bike, its this one. Very strong DH-bike behaviour down (much more than Enduro EVO i can say), but enduro/harder AM bikish up. ...and i was surprised about center of gravity of this bike, which is very low and close to your legs. Thanks to that you can feel front/all bike lighter and more maneuvrable, i was realy surprised.
