Light, stays true
None foundOverall Review: I first used these rotors with my old Elixir 5 brakes about three years ago. I changed over from the regular Avid rotors you get for free with the brakes, to try to help eliminate that hideous 'turkey warble'. These rotors are infinitely better and went some way to eliminate the problems with the old Avid rotors. Since then I have moved these on to the back of two different bikes where they perform flawlessly with Shimano SLX 666 brakes. Three years, no pitting and still completely true, very impressed. I'll probably never buy Avid brakes again, but don't overlook these rotors foe AM, trail and XC duties, they seem better than the Shimano rotors.
Lightenes and nice look.

Color combinationOverall Review: Done several trails and the performance is really great compared to other fullsus bikes I have tried. Good job to Lapierre team.
Laterally stiff, comfortable geometry, Dyad shock adds versatility, great parts spec (including light wheels, beefy Fox 36 fork and Reverb)
A bit heavy at 31.9 lbs with pedals, the fork's damping is basic, a tool-free rear axle would be niceOverall Review: I’ve been riding my Jekyll MX for about 6 months and have been really pleased. My impressions right out of the box were similar to what the Vital review said, but with a few tweaks to setup, the bike feels absolutely dialed. I live in Vancouver, BC and this is my one and only bike. My riding includes a bit of everything, from laps on the Shore to all-day XC epics in Squamish and a few enduro races. The bike feels lively, stable and laterally stiff. While some bikes like to keep wheels on the ground and soak up everything, the Jekyll feels a bit firmer and more progressive, riding higher in its travel. The rear suspension Read More »
FAST! Great pedaling, excellent cornering, good componants.
Seat dropper needs more travel, the seat is not very comfortable.Overall Review: This is the bike I have been waiting for. So fast and it corners extremely well even in the tight trails I ride on. I keep it in the 140mill position unless it gets rowdy. Not quite as easy to manual or hop as a 26" bike. Probably easily fixed with a shorter stem. Giant has really hit the Enduro jackpot with this bike. I am faster on every trail with much less effort. 27.5 fits this category very well.
