The Best Tech From Vallnord DH World Cups
Would still rock any of them in Whistler. Drool machines which show that we haven't come that far in the past 8 years (since we are also seeing the 2021 stuff popping up and nothing properly revolutionary)

7 Protective Frame Tapes Ridden & Rated
Totally sold on invisiframe. I bailed in a chute to avoid an OTB and I got to watch multiple frame-to-rock smacks as my bike tumbled down it. The protective tape was torn in places on the top tube, bottom tube, and non-drive seatstay but I found zero issues after removing it. They sent me those pieces in less than 3 days and it's all back up and ready to go. Installation sucked (5hrs for full frame) but product is killer.

All killer, period. Sick riding from the hardest crushing woman on the freeride scene.

Video: Jerome Clementz Shares His Love of Heavy Metal in 'Another Day in the Dark'
I had to stop listening to metal while riding (bikes and snowboards), it pushes me to the edge of control or amplitude with sometimes ugly results. Not that into riding with music but when I do it's always reggae. Love smashing out Whistler laps while listening to one of the Marleys.

Guerrilla Gravity's Less Expensive, US-Made Carbon Frame
GG could keep their advantage for a year or two, then start licensing the tech and manufacturing process as a sub or side business before one of the big manufacturing players copies them.

Tech Randoms: Mont-Sainte-Anne DH World Cup 2018
Always rock the EX471s, nothing better on the market. Rocked them for 2 Whistler seasons incident free. Previous owner rocked them for another 2 Whistler seasons, incident free. As for tires, buy normal width with the best compounds. Will not regret.

Its a great ride with a world cup level build that has proven reliable while being stupidly light weight. The bike is in good condition (ridden but always taken care of) and was overhauled before the end of last Summer before sitting idle this winter. Before a job offer in Euro-land opened up I was looking at getting a new rig this year and after seeing builds I didn't like that much on this year's TUES Pro Race and V10C I decided I was more than content to wait another season and rip around on this gorgeous shred sled. Sad to put this thing up for sale but I will be moving to Europe in the next few weeks and would love to buy a trail bike for exploring the Dolomites and Alps. 2015 Pivot Phoenix (Black/Red) Saint/Raceface build kit. Size: Large Bars: Raceface SixC 35mm, 25mm rise, 780wide Stem: Easton 35 2 piece DM Brakes: Shimano Saint Fork: Boxxer World Cup (Charger Damper) Rear shock: Fox DHX RC4 & Ti Spring AND comes with a BRAND NEW Cane Creek DB Coil. I got the DB coil with the bike 2 years ago, never bothered to mount it since I like the Ti Fox setup. Rear der: Shimano Saint Shifter: Shimano Saint Cranks: Raceface SixC Chain guide: E*thirteen Seat post: Thompson Elite Seat: Pivot WTB Hightail Team Wheels: Dt Swiss EX471 on Dt Swiss 250 hubs (27.5) Tires: Onza Aquila F/R (I like these more than all previous setups of DHF/DHF, DHF/DHR2, MM/MM and MM/DHR2) Forget low-balling, I'll keep it and ride it at Livigno and any other bike parks I manage to visit.

Onza Aquila Aaron Gwin Signature DH Tire - Review
After a summer of riding the Aquila (45a) in Whistler I'm pretty hyped. This tire blew every expectation I had out of the water. It rolls fast. It corners very well. When it is going to break traction, you know it. It slows you down very well. It grips nicely on wet or dusty roots. Standout characteristic is actually the traction on wet, greasy rocks. Creeping down the Joyride rock roll in the wet for fun? Not the terrifying exercise it should be. Rubber still looks great after 7 or 8 park days. Love this tire. Previously go-tos were Minion F/R, or Vertstar MM F/R. In my opinion it crushed the Magic Marys for rolling speed, durability and wet root/rock grip, and felt better than Minions in the wet and under braking. Only issue was my own overconfidence on two occasions.
