Stated they didn't include it because it does not come in a 150mm drop. Also have owned several it's really not that great of a post.

Love to have one of the YETI SB bikes. However, I cannot come anywhere close to paying that much for a frame with a lazy (cheap) press-fit BB. Zero excuses on a bike at that price range.

Vital did go through all that stuff with the Calling here. The take away from the ratings would suggest that the Calling is more fun and a better descender than the Yeti. The Yeti gets the edge in the climbing category. I have ridden both bikes (hour + demo with the Yeti) and have spent a long time with The Calling. I think Vitals reviews here are spot on. It's always a matter of priorities and style, but for me the Calling wins hands down. There are few bikes in it's travel range that shred as hard.

Added a comment about product review Review - 2017 Intense Recluse from Vital MTB Test Sessions 3/20/2017 5:54 AM

I've stated before that I happen love the fact that y'all beat the stew outta test bikes. In my experience, the number of bikes and components that are truly designed to take a beating are few. This isn't to say that riders should be riding like neanderthals, but having the knowledge of one's terrain and riding style as well where and how you eventually desire to ride can result in far less heartbreak. I have to wonder if this Intense was slotted more for an all around rider that occasionally might get freaky, but overall keeps things PG-13 versus the money shots you guys are subjecting it to.

Hearing from Mr Riffle warms my cold black heart as a total SRAM fan and the fact that he comes off as a consummate professional while being a complete freak.

BFD. It's simply a definition, a quote. Who gives a rat's tuchus? We are all in the same shit box and now matter how high up on the shit pile anyone gets, they're still a POS. Hitler actually has some interesting quotes.

How's the DB Air CS? Do you use the climb switch that much? Are you using a standard or XV can and could you share your tune? I ask as I am getting a Wrecker, am a bigger guy and have long been a Cane Creek fan. Seems like a perfect shock for the bike even though Evil won't go record about endorsing it.
