Do you have any info about the headset and cable routing?

Unfortunately no. But there are some pictures showing internal cable routing. But i don't know if they go through the headset or not.

I assume this means Flight Attendant is good enough to make Brain effectively redundant?
It's not that hard to beat Brain due to how it works.
Brain is purely mechanical/hydraulic activated. It is a reactive system. Things have to happen first, then the Brain lock/unlock after it feel the force or lack of force. Hoping that the setting is right for the next few seconds.

Electronic one, not only can react faster, it can use also use various predictive strategy. Then you can overwrite it using electronic remote as well.

I am looking forward to the weight of the new frameset as the current epic evo has the lightest frame on the market rn

All the framesets come with combo Sid/Sid Luxe with 3 positions.
No Flight in framasets.
Only Flight in SWorks bike complete.

head tube angle 66.3, or 65.9 in low bb config. What a machine. Something you would call a trail bike three ears ago, or enduro five years ago.

MTB world is just wild with the geo changes and labels. Nothing is ever what it's been called anymore.

Glad that i went with World cup.I feel that this new one doesnt have that "re-freshed aethos tubes look" and tube lines looks like old model. And that 6 pivot shock link is old, non integrated and whole shock region is ugly. And even have that old bridge on seatstays- what on earth??
