We’ve been hard at work testing a whole bunch of new bikes and gear, and I recently sat down with Simon Stewart to talk about a whole bunch of it, including comparisons of two very different Enduro bikes, the Yeti SB160 and Cotic RocketMAX; two long-travel, big-battery eMTBs, the Pivot Shuttle LT and Specialized Turbo Levo; the new SRAM Transmission, and a bunch more — and along the way we tease some new bike releases that are coming very soon. Keep your eyes on the site.

- Fox Union Shoes (37:20)

Some carbon wheels fail at a lower load with inserts like cushcore, due to more load being transferred to the rim bed rather than the lip of the rim. Hence CSS not recommending them.
