Ask Pinkbike - Wide Rims, Knee Pads for XC, and Code Brakes
Yes, the Slayer pads are a great option, although for pure XC riding they're a little heavier than both the Atlas or the 661 pads. They were included in our Ridden and Rated article: https://www.pinkbike.com/news/trail-knee-guards-ridden-and-rated-2016.html

Shimano ME7 Shoes - Review
@TheJD: I wore a size 45 in both. And @gtill9000, the ME7s aren't totally silent when walking on hard surfaces, but they're close - heads won't turn if you walk into a quiet coffee shop with them on.

Shimano ME7 Shoes - Review
If you're talking about the ME7 vs. the 'regular' Terraduro, I'd say they're on par as far as comfort and sole stiffness goes, but I prefer the extended coverage over the ankle that the ME7s provide. The outsole is also a little grippier for hiking.

The previous version of the piston valve is on the left, and the updated version is on the right.

I wouldn't be so sure that the top riders don't have access to 29" DH bikes...

Maxxis Unveils Tubeless Ready DH Tires, More 2.6” Options
That would be the Double Down casing, and it's an option for most of Maxxis' more aggressive tires.

Maxxis Unveils Tubeless Ready DH Tires, More 2.6” Options
Maxxis does still make a wide range of 26" tires - they even came out with a 26" version of the relatively new Minion SS.

Ridden and Rated: Six Tires for Rugged Trails
It depends on the conditions - a 2.5 DHF up front and a 2.4 or 2.3 DHR II works extremely well for those wet winter days when you want all the grip you can get, but when things dry up a bit something like the Aggressor or even a Minion SS / Specialized Slaughter / Schwalbe Rock Razor are all good rear tire options.

Ridden and Rated: Six Tires for Rugged Trails
I'd say so - that's a great combo for any wheel size.
