Default SAREK, GOBI, and BRYCE

Did I miss a memo? Has Lat64 even hinted at overmolds prior to GBO? Didn't follow the brand (until now), so this may be old news to many.

Excited to have more choices and some needed competition for MVP (not that they are slacking but it never hurts a consumer to have competition among brands).

They have talked them up and tweeted about them some, but it's not been as much as you would think.

Sarek and Gobi have threads. Poor Bryce does not, I don't think.

Think they are named after national parks(Sarek in Sweden, Gobi in Mongolia, and Bryce Canyon in Utah).

It is and iany competion for mvp. Yes it'd an overmold, but they didn't push the weight to the rim. They put out an article that , to paraphrase, said "we just want to make cool looking discs. Gyro technology does something, but we don't think it does enough." So, yes it's overmold, but it's overmold just to two tone their discs.

Negative - MVP/Axiom has more weight distributed to the rim to create more gyro movement, this does not, as in its still the same weight distribution - rims are just for the looks...unlike MVP/Axiom where the diff rims are for a reason.

Guys, McFer was obviously trolling MVP fans. You don't need to explain to us that they're actually different.
