Looks like it. I was torn between the Sync'r Pro and Mason Pro when shopping last year and I ended up with the Mason because of the plus tires. Both bikes felt very similar, its just that the Mason has more material to work with.Just read that it's 27.5+/29. I guess it'll also replace the Mason?
Yeah, I'm pretty excited for this myself. I just found another post on BikeRumor about it, saying a Fall '18 release, which is later than I hoped. This might replace my DJ and HT 29'er though.Wish there was a release date. I'd be all over that thing for the expected price $2200-$2400...especially if that's retail...I'd think 5% less for corporate on a new bike and in 6 months an even bigger discount.
Rides *stiffer* not necessarily "better."Carbon probably gets a slight weight decrease and a different ride characteristic. If they do it right...carbon rides much better than aluminum. Really though...a good aluminum frame can ride good too. But much of the time they don't.
No...27.5+ & 29 have similar outer diameters. You'd choose one for rougher trails or more traction and the other for snappier acceleration. 27.5+ & 29+ for different frame sizes, or 27.5 & 29. The 27.5+ & 29 basically fit the same space.Looks like it. I was torn between the Sync'r Pro and Mason Pro when shopping last year and I ended up with the Mason because of the plus tires.

Edit: Actually I forgot they still have the Mason 2 and it sold out quick... maybe 27.5+ for medium and small frames but 29er for large and xl?
