Honestly, we don't disregard your comment, but remember the head angle is designed as part of the whole geometry package. It's not as simple as "slacken it out x degrees". Dependant on spec for some riders this will make it feel terrible on trails (Even if it looks "great" on the geo charts to some). Note the Reactor is a versatile frame- we're offer travel from a 150mm to 130mm fork depending on intended use and spec, this changes the HA by upto a degree- The ST being the Shortest Travel version so inherently steepest head angle.

It's not impossible that future trail bike may come with "slacker angles", however that would be as a result of numerous changes to the whole packaging and kinematics and technology available. (the stated figures are also in the "trail setting so can be slackened .5 degree just on the rail setting).

We're super fortunate to have some pretty handy development riders (Including Sam Hill) who have used there experience and input into these bikes and pushing frames to limits and making sure the balance of the frame package is correct for our (customer) riders.

Not saying we are making the perfect bike, but its a bike that we and our riders love.

Very true, none of our Reactor models would be considered "extreme" or win a game of Top Trumps. However we put a lot of of effort into the engineering, R&D and testing to ensure they perform for riders in the real world on the trail. So far most riders, racers and media seem to enjoyed riding them (check Vitals review the other week). But happy to accept that they may not be for everyone- the beauty of the bike industry is there are a lot of brands to choose from.

Dropping into the face of Pic Blanc in practise, bit nerve racking, but awesome fun
