No company is going to mis-match hubs on a production bike so the front hub in a sense is the cost of getting the upgraded rear hub. That’s true if DT350 etc. The drop outs are awesome but the system isn’t particularly light. I’ll try and weight the drop outs at some point - they could easily add as much as a Float DPS shock. It also isn’t an XC race frame (SC has the Highball) it’s a Chameleon. But I can definitely see folks happily racing it (folks like me - not Nino) especially folks that race SS which is pretty cool for a bike with Honzo geo.  The fork is unfortunate but in terms of out of the box performance I’m sure if it came with the SKF low-friction seals it would be good for the application (120mm / hardtail).
