Well, the same guy is involved in the design process for both bikes - Cesar has been helping Intense develop their latest line of bikes.

Exactly. This is said to accomplish the same goals without infringing on any patents.

POC Brings SPIN Helmet Technology to Mountain Biking
The new model has a fiberglass shell instead of carbon, hence the price reduction. It still meets all of the pertinent safety standards.

Bell Launches 3 New Helmets for 2018 - First Look
@bonfire, yep, I used the Super DH. Helmets were required for liaison stages, and full faces were mandatory, even during practice. For some transfers I kept the chin bar on, while on longer ones I took it off and looped it around my handlebar. Bell mentioned that they're working on some sort of bike mount for the chin bar, but it's not quite ready yet.

I used one in the EWS today. Does that count? And I definitely wasn't the only one.

Cannondale Jekyll 2 - Review
@whattis, I don't think there would be any problem upgrading the bike with a non-Gemini shock. As long as you had some sort of low speed compression adjust for the climbs there really wouldn't be a performance loss. The travel adjust is interesting, but definitely not required. Coil shocks are a matter of personal preference, but I could see how that could work well with this bike, especially on really rough or loose tracks where traction is a priority. You could reduce the travel, which would give it a slightly steeper HA, but it's a pretty playful bike as it is - I never felt like there was too much fork up front.

Cannondale Jekyll 2 - Review
@fartymarty, yep, I think you've got me and Levy mixed up. I'm a fan of the direction bike geometry is going, especially with the steeper seat angles. There are limits, of course, but the Jekyll's numbers worked well for me.

Good question - I should have clarified that point. I was referring to the Nomad 4.
