Awkward looking brake lever setup... But given his abilities maybe I’m doing it wrong!
I wondered that. Started watching last night (Episode 1) and noticed his levers are almost level to the bars? Someone cleverer than me explain that please...

This came up somewhere else a little while back.
There's quite a few EWS pros with their brake levers cranked upwards IIRC.
I think it's something to do with the bike and rider position when the trail is steep. If you're hanging off the back of it all the time the brake levers get further away in the traditional down sloping position.
(don't quite remember, could be wrong)

^ yet most dh riders don't appear to have their brakes in a similar position, and probably ride trails of a similarly steep pitch.

No doubt it works, but on something that well thought out and not to mention exxy I would have expected something a tad more...refined, not just we have this loose hose we'll just zip tie it. Cable ties is the sort of half arsed cowboy shite I'd resort to.
