If you’ve ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of your favorite race team, it can involve a lot of paperwork. Specifically, pro riders recording feedback from testing out different versions of often similar products. Engineers take that information and use it to improved the design, eventually leading to the parts we know and love. The SRAM BlackBox program is no different, now headed into its 8th season under the management of Jon Cancellier.

New Found Speed focuses on that relationship between the BlackBox team member and Jon, who then relays the information to SRAM’s engineers. SRAM traveled to Finale Ligure, Italy with Jerome Clementz to get the Enduro World Series champion’s take on SRAM’s newest wheels…

unfortunately its not super informative. in the end it says all wheels are great and there was no choice or true testing done. Obviously, its an advert, but meh.

would have been great to set each wheel apart to some extent by putting an emphasis on each one’s feel and type of terrain/riding where they perform best.

This surely looks cool and all but is not informative at all to differentiate each wheel from the other. Too bad because JC could have set each one apart with his feedback but video somehow missed this point IMO…

His report reads.

Sram,

All wheels were rad, no problems through the gnarly, stoked on all of them.

Your Bro,
Jerome
