Re: mystic stealth bar

Irie, why not connect directly to the shackle? Why the SS ring? - When slack the shackle can sometimes invert. - The shackle angle is a little too acute to easily attach the QR. - 6mm is a little too thick for the QRs I use. I use 6mm shackles because the wheels (just under 6mm ID) fit perfectly. I...

Re: Which is better for heavy weight rider Evo or Rebel ?

Re: Which is better for heavy weight rider Evo or Rebel ?

... And with the removal of the pulley this year the designer says he gets more rigidity in the canopy. I have not flown the pulley-less Evo, but I've had some time on the 2020 Dice, which got the same pulley removal, and I can say for sure it's more stable and rigid, mostly noticeable when you are...

The hunting reflex is great. you just rig with bare hands, and go stick em in the lake for a good minute so they get real cold, then go get your wetsuit on and let them warm back up to beet red, then ride and they will be warm for hours.
