Yt Capra . Cannondale dont remember model , Carbon patrol.  The bikes feel dead I dont feel the bike reacting to the terrain .Things get strange when I do fast chunky trails.  I am not a big fan of flow trails.  Think Upper crippler. Small wheels and plush suspension feel great on this trail. im riding a 2006 Devinci frantic with a Fox CTD air shock. Saint drive train. Eight speeds 11/40 cluster. 65 degree HTA.  weighs 34 pounds . I built up a 29 pound carbon Santa Nomad with a Durolux fork. My frantic feels like a mini DH bike the Nomad rode like a XC bike. I sold the Nomad.  Wade could kill it on a fully rigid fat bike down cypress .If you have his talent the bike is not all that important. The last bike i saw him on probably weighed about 40 to 50 pounds.   lets say that I dont see any significant improvments in bikes in the last 15 years.
