    650b (27.5) World Cup DH confirmed....

    SC-Intense Adds Buchanan and Connell, Says They're Racing 650B at World Cups for 2013

    Link

    "Back again will be the reigning National Champs Miriam Ruchti and Lars Peyer. 
Miri will be out for the IXS overall win and a podium spot at the World Cups this coming season and Lars is setting his sights on IXS podiums and WC finals. Both are really looking forward to be on their new Pacenti / Schwalbe equipped 27.5 Intense M9’s.

    
“After testing and comparing the new 650b wheels to the standard 26”wheels I’ve got to say I’m hooked!” Notes Lars after competing on the 650b wheels at the last 4 races of the season with great results"

    Logan Biggnelli has been ripping on his KHS. It will be interesting to see how he fares DH Also will be interesting to see if Aaron Gwin will change wheels - there have been rumors- but what Bike?

    I know this day will happen. Congrats to you on more intense (pun intended) involvement with pro-racing team. Good luck.
    Will we see tougher wheels and tires coming?

    The wave gets bigger, the cats out of the bag, however you want to say it...

    No surprise to me the DH crowd will move in this direction. It'll be Gwinn next, wait and see!

    Way to go Kurt! Mega Moto's???

    Congratulations Kirk! This will bring very high visibility to 650b, and your rims.

    Will the Mega-moto R&D be revived? The tread just needed to be a little tighter spaced apart, more square in profile.

    Thanks derby. The exposure and feedback we'll get from being associated with a World Cup team will be invaluable.

    Yes, waiting on the new prototypes... should have something early next year. Not nearly soon enough I know, but I refuse to sell stuff that isn't perfect.

    Good idea. A later perfect product much better than an earlier failure. "Only one chance to make a first impression".

    Also I'm sure you wouldn't want to race on an imperfect product.
