    I have a 2011 non-Evo SuperSix, and it's incredible. These newer iterations are supposed to be even lighter and stiffer where it matters. Plus other changes, like internal routing, braze-on fd,...

    25 miles or so. 2" of fresh on 4" from 3 days ago. Dry stuff, not too hard to fight with on an un-tracked 4x4 road in Arches NP.

    Tubeless tires do not use slime (the green heavy high viscosity stuff). The sealant is milky white, thin and easily removed from the inside of the tire to prepare for a glue and boot/patch.
