I think the questions to ask are first, what style stabilizer do the PD and Baja racers use especially considering their gas weight. Second I would like to know for gravel road/forest service road riding what gives the most stable ride especially loaded heavy at the rear. Third do both styles respond the same to a "sudden" hit on the front wheel from a pothole, rock or a flat tire at speed. I dont think it is safe to say we know the answer for certain. Adventure riding is special. I was supplied with a off road stabalizer by Scott and it is working great, even fully loaded with gas and luggage. However my type of riding is a long way from the mx track. Sliding is not generally an issue. My off road stabalizer works perfect on the ATV trails. They can get rough.
