    Eurobike and IBike are coming up soon. If you don't hear anything then the next typical product release window is late winter/early spring.
    Safe riding,

    For a smaller company, I think they've done a pretty amazing job with releasing 5 bikes this year. I'd be surprised if they have anything else in the pipeline for the remainder of the year. Plus if they launch at EB/IB, the message could get lost in all the other announcements. My $.02.

    Phoenix DH Carbon - February 2016

    LES 29/27+ - April 2016

    Switchblade - May 2016

    Firebird v2 - August 2016

    Vault - August 25, 2016

    Probably at least 60 billion.

    I'd expect a boosted rear triangle update and move to boost forks. Mild refresh.

    I would expect the SL to be phased out when the new 429T is released in two years. I predict a 429 with 142 or maybe 157 if buyers allow it. It will have internal routing and a stiffer more compact rear end. Weight will not decrease significantly. It will be a trail bike that is able to be raced Travel will be 120mm. Pricing will go up over the Trail.

    I think the next bike will be a refresh of the Les 27.5" and that would make 6 this year.

    Doubtful.
    429T does not in any way replace the 429sl which is far more popular in my neck of the woods. Not to mention that no one is racing XC (Chloe Woodruff) on a 429T, but did race in Rio on a 429sl. Other than the name similarity they are quite different.

    Looks like boost rear end is the only difference? They aren't even touting 27.5+ compatibility in their marketing materials surprisingly.

    27.5+ compatible (up to 2.8 tires).
