Berd Release 1400 Gram Enduro Ready String-Spoke Wheelset
I´m running Pirope Wheels with textile spokes for 2,5 years now on my enduro bike. They weigh 1445g in 27.5" with a Newmen 30mm alloy rim. They have seen a lot of trails, bikepark, jumps und downhills and they are straight like on the first day. But the best thing about them is not the weight (it´s also great), it is the riding behavior. They feel stiff and precise but at the same time much more damped, with better traction and less vibration in the bike than with traditional spokes. I love them. In my opinion the Pirope Wheels are nicer made than the Berd wheels with with the spokes knotted to the hub. But with Pirope you need their special hubs (made by Newmen).

Tool's High-Pivot Prototype is Machined in Canada
It's an Actofive P-Train copy with a slacker head angle. But the Actofive looks a lot better.

Video: Welcome to the 2022 Downcountry Field Test
Most interresting bikes in the class are for me the Arc8 Evolve FS and the Transition Spur. I would wish me a Field Test with these Bikes.

Must Watch: Bryn Atkinson in 'Gold Standard'
Incredible riding. But I was the half video long shocked by this colour. The III Presto of Summer by Vivaldi fits surprisingly well

Hayes' New Dominion T4 Brakes Use Titanium & Carbon Fiber to Save Weight
@russell-crowe: In short, the Dominion A4 is the much better brake and that in every respect. I drove the MT7 with many different pads and was never really satisfied. In extreme cases, the pressure point float and the braking force decreased when it was really hot on long hard descents. The Dominion has no fading at all, works at the end of the descent just like at the start. In addition, the hand force is much lower in the vast majority of braking. I have less arm pump. The dosage is the best thing about the brake. The dosage is extremely good. If you have ridden the Dominion, you realize only how bad it is with Shimano, Sram or especially Magura. The pressure point is also much firmer than with Magura. Finally, I must say that the workmanship is also outstanding. From the beginning perfectly simultanious function of all pistons. I just installed them in my Transition Patrol, bled and did nothing to it for two years except change pads. After more than 2 years was due times a bleeding. The brake is absolutely great and in my opinion the best on the market. Okay, Trickstuff is still a little stronger, nicer and lighter, but much more expensive, has long delivery time and is difficult to bleed. I ride the Dominions with the sintered pads.

Hayes' New Dominion T4 Brakes Use Titanium & Carbon Fiber to Save Weight
@Zany2410: I have a different opinion to the bleeding. Maguras are easy to bleed, if you are satisfied with a 95% result. But if you want to have a 100% perfect bleeded brake, that is very difficult to get with Magura. With the Dominion, on the other hand, I had a really perfectly vbleeded brake faster than with any other brake. The two bleed holes on the caliper help a lot. In my basement are meanwhile 2 bikes with Dominion A4.

One of my best decisions regarding bike components ever was to sell the MT7 and put an A4 on the bike. Best brake ever!(maybe with the exception of super expensive and hard to get Trickstuff brakes)

Opinion: Why You Shouldn't Care What the Pros Ride
If Canyon build the new strive as short as the old, there are not many reasons to buy a new one. Make it different (longer) and say it´s better.
