New Helmet Safety Technology From MIPS - Eurobike 2017
@qpcr8tiv: Interesting. Good sign is they mention that the fit is important. This is what I also heard results from a German study that is not yet published will show. I think that there is a room to improve. Current helmets are designed to protect the skull not the brain so maybe some tweaks are possible.

New Helmet Safety Technology From MIPS - Eurobike 2017
I am not a scientist but the subject looks extremely difficult and maybe even impossible to solve. Brain damage is something they all trying to prevent. The problem is that even if you will design a perfect deceleration function a helmet is still not thick enough to make a deceleration significantly smaller. And if you add bulk to the helmet it becomes safer but then angular momentum becomes your enemy. The truth is we all have an unstable jelly in our heads that gets damaged easily. And if you make the head to big other types of damage may occur. The best example here is NFL. The league is worth millions of dollars and yet the data is crushing. Almost all players of american football on all levels suffer from chronic traumatic encephalopathy. And there is a good chance all NFL will be shut down because of that. So you can imagine how hard they are working to make a better helmet for those guys. But there is no breakthrough I know of on the horizon.

Cube Stereo 140 C:68 SLT 29 - Review
Also Eagle derailleur is noticeably longer which makes rock strikes much more common. Eagle may find it's use in XC and maybe cyclocross but trail riding and enduro should be left for 11 speed or gearbox :).

Suzuki Nine Knights MTB 2017 Trailer
I don't want to be a party pooper here but... People should realize that today's athletes are pushing it really towards the edge. What these people are doing is really a hair from a serious injury. Same with slope style. So if you kids out there consider these guys as your idols remember that you can pay an ultimate price for stunts like that. These are not 90' where jumping on any kind of dirts was considered awesome. Now it's triple back flip with quadruple front superman ... that will make you famous. I am really glad that I grew up in times when JIB was the coolest movie out there. And one could really be close to be doing these things. Without breaking a neck. Now it's redbull time.

Giant Reign Advanced 2018 - First Ride
@MSVF: It would be. But if you think about it is the only logical thing to do. Shame that trends are not very logical most of the time.

Giant Reign Advanced 2018 - First Ride
I think that Liv Hail is much better bike. The leverage ratio is improved compared to the old Reign. The geometry is much better than the new Reign. 74 seat angle (great for climbing). 66 head tube angle (not so slack). And the reach is perfect for L frame (450mm). So Liv Hail is just MUCH better bike in my opinion. With Reign they made it longer (too long for me), and the seat tube is still slack. Whatever they changed in leverage ration is not important. I just hope that it will be possible to buy Liv Hail as a frame only option soon.

Push ACS-3 Coil Spring Conversion Kit - First Look
This fork does not need a coil. This fork need a bigger range in the damper adjustment. In the Alps when the compression h and l are fully open it still feels harsh sometimes.
