Field Test: 2020 Pole Stamina 140 - The Fastest Trail Bike*
@Svinyard: the downcountry bikes were timed on a loop, not the trail bikes.

@HurricaneCycles: we actually added pressure to the Pole to make sure it was at 30% sag for Jason before we filmed the huck to flat.

Field Test: 2020 Pole Stamina 140 - The Fastest Trail Bike*
@elmaar: it's not a random metric, it's one single metric our entire time on the bike. As others have said, timed testing is flawed and not the only thing we're relying on here. We'll have a video come out in the next few days that will explain all our test loops. We wanted it out earlier, but were waiting for some 3D work to come back so people can see the routes more effectively.

@MarcusBrody: well thankfully we had Levy do a super unscientific "impossible climb" test with all the bikes, so you'll be able to see which bike broscience determines climbs the "best". :)

The HTF is just for gathering video. It's not intended to be a destructive test. All bikes were set to 35psi in the tires and set to 30% sag for Jason Lucas. He sometimes did a few smaller jumps to warm up before popping a bigger one, but in the Pole's case it failed on the first jump.

No, another bike failed more catastrophically during actual test riding. When we filmed that intro video, this huck to flat filming hadn't even been done.

@duzzi: the "efficient feeling" stuff was in the climbing section. The timed section for these bikes was a descent. We'll have a video out soon that'll go a little more in depth into our testing process.

@Howieday91: https://www.pinkbike.com/news/trailforks-30-day-ride-challenge-prize-winners-and-recap.html do you mean this?

We generally try to do 1 video per weekday, and we didn't want to overlap our videos for Thursday/Friday. The next Field Test is scheduled for Monday. :)
