Santa Cruz Carbon V10

From Spoke Magazine: "Pink Bike has a 15 minute interview wih Cedric Gracia from Sea Otter. CG fills us in on his new team ‘Racing Brigade’, updates us on his recovery from injury last year, and talks us through his V10 & Nickel 4x bike. Did I hear him say that the new V10 is going to be a different material? Hmmm . . . . finally a carbon V10?"

And "check the code of SC homepage... disabled link to V10 carbon..."

2011 Mongose Teocali Prototype

– Tapered Head Tube
- Hydro formed top tube (better stand over)
- 150mm Freedrive suspension platform (up from 140)
- The freedrive platform on the Teocali is running on the bearings that you’ll find on the burlier Booter which are larger and will last longer.
They have made it stronger without adding weight to the frame. There will be three trail specs (The Comp, the Elite and the Super) and one Enduro spec (the Mega).

KHS Dh Prototype @ Sea Otter 2010

"This build belongs to Team KHS rider Logan Binggeli and is one of only two in existence. It weighs in (with the Manitou rear air can) at just over 36 pounds and has a unique BB linkage (that you can read about in a future issue of decline magazine) that, "Feels like a moto," as Logan puts it, "And can pedal through everything."

Marzocchi 44 Carbon

"It’s not quite as flash as it looks as it’s just a carbon wrap (so it might even end up heavier than the regular one…) but it does look pretty…"


Marzocchi 55 Doucle Crown??

"It's a proper raw machined prototype. It uses Marzocchi 55 lower legs, but two crowns for a super stiff enduro fork. No name, date, price or any info yet - it's probably a 2012 product.."


2011 Rock Shox SID RLT

The new SID RLT will sport a 15mm Maxle thru-axle for extra steering precision relative to the current 80/100mm SID as well as a revised and sleeker looking magnesium casting with smoother lines and a proper disc brake hose clamp that doesn't require an unsightly zip tie. 
Power Bulge lower bushing reinforcements are still included as well and the 32mm aluminium upper tubes are again emblazoned with permanent sag gradients for easier setup.
Internal architecture looks to be mostly carried over from the current SID with a Dual Air spring system on one side and RockShox's highly successful Motion Control damper on the other.  The compression dial is now indexed, though, and the rebound dial is notably easier to grab and rotate.
RockShox product manager Sander Rigney wouldn't reveal the new fork's projected weight but it's logical to assume that it will slot in between the current SID Team's 1,485g (3.27lb) and the Reba Team Dual Air's 1,620g (3.57lb) figures. Likewise, Rigney declined to comment on steerer tube configurations but 1 1/8" straight and 1 1/8"-to-1 1/2" tapered seem like fair bets.
