Opinion: Moving The Needle
This is the video I showed to Richard. The rider is Isak Leivsson. The second rider is not on Pole. Here I is what I showed when I talked about our suspension concept. This is me riding.

One Last Walk Through the Biggest Bike Show in California - Sea Otter 2018
@Chingus-Dude: I'm glad that you visited us and noticed the fast rebound :) As we designed the bike's geometry from a clean desk, we did not stop there. We use a lot of effort to engineer the suspension accordingly to the geometry. It's not a surprise that we found something out of the box there as well. The suspension design is entirely different from the norm. The shock has a "high rebound" compression, what means that the shim stack is built to damp the high-speed rebound more than standard shocks. What this means is that when you use all of the travel the shock's first rebound is damped tight but when the big hit is taken care of the shock returns to its dynamic SAG position fast because we leave the low-speed rebound reasonably open. As you thought that we did not check the bikes, the bikes were just how the bike should be tuned. On Pole bikes, low-speed rebound can be left fast so that the bike's geometry holds high in the travel in small chatter and tracks the ground. If you need more convincing, there are first ride tests where you can read more about the bike and how it rides on a setup like this. We are organizing Pinkbike a test bike for them for long-term use but in the meanwhile, you can take a look at the first ride reviews found on our website from other big media. -Leo

Short, Sweet & Totally Analogue - Video
@WAKIdesigns: Yes! "Flying Finn" is used more on F1 or Rally, and it means a fast Finn. There is also a photo of Mika Häkkinen jumping on a race track with his McLaren F1.

Cheers! "They must have been digging real deep to find spots where riding looks this fast." Have you ever heard a saying "Flying Finn"?

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
@Skooks: Well people really seem to understand this thing how they wish. We think that carbon fiber itself is not unethical. The process is unethical that produces it to consumer mountain bikes. To that price people buy them you need cheap labour and cutting corners in waste management. The labour intensive process can not be automated so the future is going to be dark. It's not about the carbon footprint nor the material itself, it's matter of ethics that we should move forward to automation which is the future. The conversation here has been concentrated too much on the carbon footprint. Where we left off with the story was about ethics. It might be hard to understand this ethical point. Scandinavian culture emphasises equality and fairness. We also cherish not making unnecessary harm. What you suggest that we should not making bikes at all is a paradox. There are dozens of comments here that if we would care about the world we should quit doing everything. It's also a paradox. We have chosen this way and if we can make an ethical choice, we should do it. There are a lot of companies that don't give a shit about ethics and nobody is blaming them about it but when some companies are trying to think about ethics they need to have very good reasons for it. Just like we see on this forum. People might think that there are a group of marketing guys answering here from Pole but it's all me and all these thoughts are from my head. -Leo Kokkonen If you just read the whole story, you will get our point.
