This bike RIPS. Just started to put some rides on it after a knee surgery last year. I've spent a few days riding the whistler bike park, as well as around my local trails here in the cascades. The travel feels bottomless, and I'm even considering selling my dh now. It feels like I've brought my dh bike when I drop in to my local trails, but was able to pedal there! Definitely a stout bike, and not the absolute lightest, but it gets up with no issues and is able to bomb anything to my skill level or way beyond. Not only that, but I'm very happy with how it jumps for an XL 29er. Poppy on the jumps, but a truck over the chunk.
They made a winner with this one 🏆
