Four New Tires From Michelin - First Ride
Schwalbe Magic Mary or a Bontrager SE5. All we ride out here during the warm season is loose over hard pack. HR2s work well also, but the Marys are the gold standard.

Four New Tires From Michelin - First Ride
Michelin asked us to bring a capable AM bike to the launch, thus the 30mm rims. I've ridden enough tire and rim combinations to sort out the differences for a first ride piece. For a long-term test, I'd definitely fit the XC tires on narrower rims.

Four New Tires From Michelin - First Ride
The AM versions look and act bigger than they are because the larger side blocks create a flatter profile - like the HR2. Just to be sure they didn't balloon after a week, I rechecked the width of the two AM tires at 32psi when I fact-checked the article. They ranged from 2.3" to 2.35" at the widest part, which was both the edge blocks and the casing. 30mm inner-width rims tend to move the casing out and oddly, the edging tread inward slightly, so with 28/26mm IW rims, the edging blocks would be poking out a little farther and probably put the measured width of the tread at 2.35 or slightly wider, while the casing could shrink about 4mm. Hope that helps

Michelin is withholding their MSRP until the European launch in a couple of weeks. I'll update this article as soon as they release the numbers.

Fox Proframe Full-Face Helmet
@onemanarmy: Not exactly. the rear pads are molded caress the back of the neck like a true DH full face does and Fox includes various thicknesses in the kit. By pairing up the Proframe's neck pads and brow pads, you can achieve a custom fit. It's different, but effective.

Fox Proframe Full-Face Helmet
I'm going to the official launch Friday. Should have prices, weights, and a ride impression up shortly after.

Deity Overhauls Entire Company With New Line
@groghunter: You are on to something. Speaking with handlebar makers over the years, I learned that it takes a busload of testing and tweaking to make a 35mm handlebar flex enough to be comfortable and still pass fatigue standards. Behind the marketing hype, you may be surprised that the product engineers who do all the heavy lifting say that 35mm bars are unnecessary for both stiffness and strength - carbon or aluminum - and that many joke about the time they spend to make a 35mm bar feel like a 31.8mm one.
