Confirmed: Cannondale's New Downhill Bike Has 2 Shocks
That’s what I got from it as well, near the beginning they literally say they want to split the forces going to the spring alone and then to the damper. So that they can make adjustments to both with out influencing the other. Whereas with a traditional shock set up the single shock is responsible for both spring rate and dampening which causes changes in either to effect one another.

OneUp Announces Carbon Bars, EDC Ready Stem & Lock-On Grips
There hasn’t been a need for it. But due to their EDC tool it’s opened up this need.

First Ride: Zipp Enters the Mountain Bike World With New 3Zero Moto Carbon Wheels
@slow-burn: even then though, just have them rebuilt with new hubs haha or sell them, and then buy a new set.

First Ride: Zipp Enters the Mountain Bike World With New 3Zero Moto Carbon Wheels
Only thing im thinking about is the super low profile rim depth.. I understand moto being a strong influence in the bike industry, but id argue the reason moto's can get away with lower depth profile rim is because the tire structure is way different then in mtb, moto tire sidewalls are way way way stiffer and stronger then mtb tires. I dont know how confident I would feel having that shallow/flat of a rim profile. Also designing their rims to flex laterally but yet have them be a-symmetrical, wouldn't that mean one side of the rim is actually going to be stiffer then the other. (yes i know about wheel tension and all that jazz, Im just talking rim design)

lol you can buy a set of WeAreOne Composites with DT350s for like $1500 Canadian, that is only a few hundred bucks more then what it would cost to build a nice alloy wheel set. That also includes lifetime warranty replacement, which with the lifespan of alloy rims, makes it worth it alone. Ive seen a few Chinese brand wheels absolutely detonate, and also known people who have gone through enough Chinese carbon rims, that they ended up just spending more money in the end to keep replacing them then they would have if they just bought wheels from a reputable brand with quality warranty. Yes you pay more, but in the end, the higher costs usually have their reasons

First Look: Fox Rampage Pro Carbon Helmet
@Loki87: SE4 is the first and I believe still the only helmet that has triple density EPS foam, the liners also have both coolmax and dri-lex where as most other helmets have neither or just dri-lex. Also having worn a SE4 tons of times, the padding seems to be waaaaay softer then anything else I’ve ever worn, even in comparison to the D3.

Personally not a fan of the aesthetics, compared to the old RPC this looks a lot worse. Not to mention seeing some of the pictures of riders wearing it during Crankworx, they look like bobble heads.. I feel the slimmer profiles and more sleek design are a huge attribute to the success of helmets like the D3, and even the previous RPC ..

Check out the technology in the TLD SE4 .. I’m waiting for the day TLd drops a D4 and it has the same foam/padding tech.. seems like I’m endlessly waiting tho haha
