After the article about my AC, here is his big brother: the Ion 20!
So: Hot or not? You can vote here and see more pictures!
Also, I have already raced (and crashed) with it in Greece:
Not the best conditions for a first race but the Ion did the job pretty well, aspecially with these dry tires (magic mary are great but the rock razor...good only for bike park).
To compare, i had a Kona operator before (w/ bos stoy/tuned boxxer/EX823-CK wheels), which was good almost everwhere, but not for pedalling.
The Ion is good everywhere. 650b wheels are maybe a little bit harder to carry and push than 26" but when you find the good balance it's better in my opinion for DH racing, aspecially when you're tall.
Next steps for me after the Transvésubienne with the AC, will be the whole French DH Cup and the Mégavalanche de l'Alpe d'Huez this summer.
I will try to share with you a video of each event.
