The Good: fits well l/xl does its job I guess
The Bad: 1 endo and the helmet was toastOverall Review: For a 100 dollar helmet I thought the quality would be a lot better. When I got the helmet, I noticed that some of the plastic pieces that hold the straps in place were popped out. I attempted to pop them back in only to find that they were broken and would not stay in place....No big deal, I wanted to ride. Every time I pull the helmet out for a ride, the stupid pads that are velcroed in fall out, its annoying. I took one spill and now the helmet has a huge dent in it and is useless....I would not recommend this helmet, spend the extra 50 dollars and get a TLD
The Good: Excellent descender, surprisingly capable climber, excellent performing build kit, tubeless kit included, proper large sizing
The Bad: Cost is relatively high for alloy frame and X1, some flex from separate upper maestro links, some noises and creaksOverall Review: I've had my Reign 1 for around 3 months now, and the bike continues to get better as I continue riding it. It's so good on the downhills my Demo 8 is for sale, and it climbs as well as many smaller trail bikes I've ridden. The Pike dual position air I've found to be a great asset, as with the fork in 130mm mode the bike feels like a much more aggressive trail bike making getting round feel much more natural, and extended climbs much easier. On the descentsyou canforget aboutfinding theeasiest line choice and instead plow throughthe harshest yet most direct route. The sizing would seem quite large, and the top tube figures are Read More »
The Good: Everything about this bike is great! I love how you can change how much compression you want while you ride it. My other bike you couldn't change that at all.
The Bad: I would change the pedals personally because I don' like plastic pedals. My feet slip easierOverall Review: There is nothing wrong with this bike besides the pedals. I would recomend it. If you Live in North OC, go to BikeLand Cypress it is only $1210 there plus tax.
The Good: Is the best cornering bike I have ever ridden, Very comfortable cockpit. Inspires confidence
The Bad: Needs a seat dropper with longer travel than 120mm. The Magura brakes are very powerful. too powerful for my tasteOverall Review: Whoever wrote that review is absolutely nuts! I sold my brand new 2015 Nomad after riding this bike1x . It is a great all mountain bike. Very refined and unique. The bike does not feel "tall".Its nice not to mash pedals against rocks and flip off of your bike. I cant wait to race the bike this season.
