This is a good platform to upgrade from, or if you are slow(like me) you can ride it as is. The XCM34 coil is very rigid and performs surprisingly well for have no dampening system at all, and is sprung pretty much perfectly for me at 190lbs, and has good bottom out resistance. I lubed it with slickoleum which helps its small bump smoothness.
The brakes, dropper, and 1x10 drivetrain work well enough, the tires aren't great for grip, but roll fast. I'm going to upgrade the tires first to tubeless and then see how I feel about the fork.
