Video: Urge BP Releases a New Lightweight Full Face Helmet for Enduro Racing
I've done a similar thing but got the IXS Trigger FF, it's another good option in the lightweight but vented full face category.

Bike Check: Comparing Norco Factory Racing's Sight Enduro Setups
I read that as the opposite, they would normally run XLs for racing but these bikes are their 'play' bikes so they downsized for more playfulness.

Video: ReTyre is a Modular Tyre That Lets You Zip on the Tread You Need
Could see this being useful for longer distance bike packing or touring. You're going to hit different terrain but swapping normal tires may not be always feasible or convenient. Run your slicks for most of it but zip on some gravel tires for the 2 days of gravel on some alpine trails?

XL Banshee Phantom

$2800 CAD
Parting ways with my trusty Banshee. This is a down country bike, it's got a solid part spec and will party hard on the way down while not being a pig to get back up. It'll do 50km+ singletrack days, quick laps of your local loop and save your bacon when you get in over your head down that one chute you've always looked at and never ridden. Highlights: Pike RCT3 140mm fork Carbon Roval Traverse Fatty SL wheels, these are lightweight and 30mm internal width Guide RSC brakes with carbon lever upgrade Carbon Race Face next bar 1x11 X01 drive train Reverb stealth with 1x lever Downcountry geometry: 67ish head angle, 75ish seat angle, 480ish reach (all are approximate due to a longer travel fork than what's on the geo chart, it's 68 HA, 75.5SA, 485 reach with a 120mm fork, See here for a full geo chart: https://www.bansheebikes.com/past-model-archive#phantom-v2-geometry-chart) 2.6 x 29 Butcher/Forekaster front/rear tires with plenty of clearance for mud Brand new Ergon saddle Condition: It's been ridden and loved, there are some rub marks on the cranks, non-drive chainstay, the odd nick or scratch in the anodizing (yes, it's an anodized frame, no paint chips or flaking powdercoat here). See pictures for a better look. Let me know if you want better photos of a particular area. There are no marks on the stanchions or shock shaft and the suspension has been regularly serviced, it works nicely. The wheels are straight and true, the pivots have been replaced with enduro bearings, it has a King headset. The tires still have plenty of life in them, they are set up tubeless. It doesn't come with pedals Sizing: It's an XL, will likely fit riders 5'10" and up, I'm 5'11" (181cm) and it fits me nicely, there is some seat post showing and it's running a 60mm step currently. Sale info: Buyer pays shipping, may be willing to meet depending on location etc. Let me know if you have any questions.

Review: 2020 Norco Sight C1 - Bigger, Burlier & Better
@DHhack: If you look at the size chart for the Sight it only goes up to 6'3", at just under 6'4" the XL is borderline too small for you still. Maybe they'll make an XXL one day?

Review: 2020 Norco Sight C1 - Bigger, Burlier & Better
I'm nearly 6' and got an XL and it feels great tbh (I'm at the very bottom of the height range for that size). There are a lot of things that affect sizing, including suspension setup. If the front end is dive-y and doesn't support you, you'll tend to ride with a rear bias making the bike feel longer than it potentially looks on paper. If the front end supports you, you can get over the front wheel/bars more and then it doesn't feel as long as you're not hanging off the back all the time.

Review: 2020 Norco Sight C1 - Bigger, Burlier & Better
I bought an XL and have to say it's the best fitting bike I've ever ridden. Climbing and descending, it just fits!

First Ride: The 2020 Norco Sight Has an All-Mountain Focus
Alternatively, the engineers have worked out that longer reaches (in conjunction with other changes) actually make bikes better? It's healthy to be skeptical of marketing, sometimes it's not pure BS though.
