Trek have made  new XC beast that is being ridden by the pros.  I dont think its for sale yet but it looks very cutting edhe judging from articles etc.  And No its not the Top Fuel, even though that has also been released and it looks amazing.  This XC bike is a new bike. Apparently sub 10kg

The Blur would be the top dog if you have the budget for one .

With Cycle Lab being the retail agent you also wont see many on the trails either .

Yes the worst keep secret in the industry but I'm pretending I don't know about it even though I have ordered one and bought all the parts

It's amazing how many people still think Santa Cruz is left field... Yeti seems (in my opinion) to be moving into the position Santa Cruz was in 5+ years ago as the up and coming left field option in SA so probably a good balance between relatively unusual and still decent local support.
