Their 2013 matte crystal white DS 8.4 looks good (or am I bias cause I've got one). Like it much more than any of their glossy colours. Not sure if any of their current range uses this paint.

Bit of a pain to keep clean if you're a bit obsessive about having a clean bike.

The worst thing isn't the dirt or mud which easily cleans off with soap and water but grease or oil marks but a quick wipe with something like WD40 gets rid of that.

My X-Bow is also mostly white (as well as black and red) and suffers the same oil/grease cleanliness issue but the glossy colour just isn't anywhere as nice as the matte crystal white.
