Ohlins Launches Updated DH38 m.1
@PhillipJ: Turbo Kinevo weights 53 lbs. Most DH bikes/Enduro bikes are at 32. Thats a 20 lb difference, that is not dynamic like a rider who can maneuver around the bike and redestribute force between hands and feet. While it won't affect riding performance, remember that things have to be engineered with a safety limit. Worst case is a 300 lb guy riding a Turbo Kinevo downhill.

E bikes weight more, so you definitely need stiffer components if you point them down.

Ohlins Launches Updated DH38 m.1
Yep, had shitty experience with Ohlins when I raced motorcycles. It may be different now, but when I wanted to order parts, customer service DGAF a fuck about you unless you were an authorized dealer, and parts weren't really available on 3d party websites. Only way I was able to get the part is contact a shop that dealt with them Whereas when dealing with Penske, I called them up and told them the shock model and bike, and they sent the package out that day with everything I needed.

Im really curious about the financials of some of the pro athletes. Owning your own bike brand and owning your own bike park is not cheap, and I wonder how much of that money is sponsorships versus other sources.

Ohlins Launches Updated DH38 m.1
Im surprised that Ohlins/PB don't mention this but BE VERY CAREFUL about putting a dual crown on anything but a DH bike or a bike specifically approved for a dual crown. The issue is that when you have a single crown and you have a bending moment forward or aft, the crown usually flexes a little which is where the stress goes. With a dual crown, all that stress goes directly into the headtube because of the upper clamp, so you can oval/snap the headtube with a hard enough impact.

There is a software called shim restackor, you can plug in the numbers and see what individual shims do. Motorcycle Supension bible also is a good reference.

Right now its treats for nerds. Even experienced riders can't really tell you in detail what a particular compression tune does in terms of what happens at the contact patch, they just know what feels right and what doesn't, and really, thats the part about suspension tune that is the most important. I personally want to see some IMU data from on-bike testing when someone says "component x does y better".

Pirelli Announces New Scorpion XC RC Tire
If you are losing an XC race with tires other than 2.3s. I guarantee you its not because of the tire. Kate Courtney runs wide trail XC tires. Its all in the compound, structure, and pressure.
