Very fun!!

The Good:

Perfect downhill geo. Raced A-line at Crankworx, felt solid all the way through.

The Bad:

Not much! If any..

Overall Review:

Feels exactly like a shocker, just an inch less travel. I run a Boxxer so its a little slacked out, but it rides big jumps great, and corners fast. At the same time rides the rocky rooty technical downhill like a CHAMP.

Demoed this bike at Trestle bike park, Rode it super hard and it just wanted more. Fast, felt good off the big jumps and drops.

The Bad:

price, i think this price is just for the frame, Winterpark bike shop was selling a complete for $6k

Overall Review:

good bike, but the price is up there, if you have the money, then buy it!
