It's okay,

Rating:
The Good:

Fairly agile, great park bike if the brake spec was a little higher

The Bad:

A bit heavy, some cheap/ low spec stock parts

Overall Review:

Rode for a week in Whistler. Bike was a well maintained rental, it rode well, but not as well as some other bikes I've ridden at Whistler bike park. By the time i was near the bottom the brakes were really hot, and howling like crazy. Can't be that bad though! Vanderham's been riding em for years!

Great entry DH bike

The Good:

I rented this bike for the summer to see how i liked DH and let me tell you, this bike was a dream to ride. The plush marx fork and the fox van in the bike made for a smooth ride all together.

The Bad:

It is on the heavy side, but hey who cares when your ripping the DH up.

Overall Review:

Great beginner and entry level DH bike. Highly recommened
