Dampening


Great capture, Stan's. Spencer is clearly highly dampened.

Slap 'em in the face with a wet towel.

Well to be fair, if you're using stans rims tubeless with a few tire combos plus sealant, things will be dampened on impacts. I see what they're going for.

"The ZTR Valor utilizes a construction that is both elastic and strong"

I'll be impressed if they can make carbon rims as flexy as their aluminum ones!

From wiki

' Defined as to make damp or to stifle,
dampening can be correctly used to describe depressing the intensity of an emotion, but should not be used to describe the reduction in amplitude of a force, a harmonic oscillation, or similar physical process or phenomenon. For such phenomenon, damping is the correct term.'

There's an office somewhere in Big Flats, NY, where all the racing pictures that were considered for that ad are scattered on a table; none of them said "feeble, slow and off-balance" quite like this one did.

Does someone know who innovated the slogan that carbon dampens anything better than aluminium? Wheels and handlebars in particular? It's hard to find a bullshit bigger than this. And then so many propel it further... it's unbelievable how stupid one must be to feel so much guilt for spending lots of money to convince himself that such utter crap is true.
