    Strengths:    These shoes are the best ever made for DH. Most reliable and comfortable as well as stable.

    Bottom Line:   
    It's a damn shame that Valencia pussed out on the manufacturing of them.

    Strengths:    Excellent protection. SPD compatible. Very good look.
    «Real downhill boots!!!»

    Weaknesses:    -The top of the lycra lining burns the skin!
    -Funky fit. I ordered a 42
    (too big) and after a 41. The «Sizing Chart» isn't correct.

    Bottom Line:   
    Well, I bought these boots for my birthday. It's a good product but it isn't the best quality/price I have seen...

    Strengths:    Grippy, SPD compatible, ankle support, ankle armour, water resistant.

    Weaknesses:    Nothing.

    Bottom Line:   
    Best shoes I've ever tried. I used to smash up my ankles regularly, now they never get hurt. The built in ankle armour is outstanding! These are waterproof enough that you need to submerge your foot to get wet, and some waterproofing spray will help even more. My riding buddy runs the same shoes on flats (I run SPDs) and swears by them as well.

    Strengths:    These last a long time. Great ankle support

    Weaknesses:    spd only (I use them on flats anyways)

    Bottom Line:   
    These shoes work great for downhill applications. They are well made and provide great ankle support. I use this shoe for all my downhill riding for two years and I have at least another year of use left on them. Why they made these for spd only is beyound me. The only way they could improve these shoes is to give they the sole of their dually shoe and of course lower the price. These babies are made for Plattakill.

    giant reign float shock climb mode feels same as descend mode

    Hey Guys, I posted this in the Giant forum but didn't get any responses. I bought a new close out 2013 Reign 0 which came spec'd with a float CTD adjust shock. Is it normal for the rear suspension action to NOT feel locked out with the float set to Climb mode, bouncing around in a parking lot? T ... Read More »

    Brand New Reverb Stealth won't descend/go down.

    Anyone want to do a climb/descend ride in Prescitt on Sunday?

    Looks like it will still be be chilly in Flag/Williams, but perfect here and way too hot in Phoenix (for me). Thinking of doing a ride up Smith Ravine, continue up Spruce Mtn to the 5.5 trail, down and then up the 3.5, then down to Smith Ravine and back. Maximum up and down. No screwing around wi ...
