enduro has certainly spawned packless riding innovations. integrated tool solutions, swat boxes, and bottle mounts in easy to reach locations, etc. one needs to be self sufficient, but packs cover up logos on sponsors jerseys (plus packs just suck). pros don't do packs, and the adaptations have trickled down to we peons. coil shocks also (in some cases) make better sense on enduro bikes than dh, given the much longer stage lengths & the associated heat management issues.
