He’s been running some Schwalbe Dirty Dan’s at Val Di Sole that are cut down. These Dirty Dan’s are part of the Schwalbe ‘first ride’ program. Schwalbe recently announced the Dirty Dan to the Schwalbe Super Gravity series of tires that we’ve found quite awesome so far.
Typically with downhill bikes, you run a short cage rear derailleur. With the high idler pulley and the chaingrowth of the bike, there is a lot of chain for the derailleur to manage so a medium cage derailleur is used currently with this iteration.
Wyn was able to pilot the Bulls prototype to 22nd place this past weekend at Val Di Sole.
