Great Low Matinence Bike

The Good:

Has a great light build that can handle anything that you throw at it I have raced 5 races in all diffirent conditions and this bike really surprised me on how well it tracks through gnarly stuff. The bike jumps like and dream shredding down a classic trail like "A-line" and has great simple adjustments for anyone looking for a simple clean bike.

The Bad:

I really can not say any bad things about it, it was the perfect bike for that suited my riding style. Being a 4-Bar suspension design, it is harder to pedal that other bikes but with the right suspension setup it can be heavily reduced

Overall Review:

Overall the bike felt amazing and easy to ride right as I first pedaled it around. The bike handles great on steep gnarly stuff and flying through the air. I love this bike and was defiantly the best bike I have ever rode and would recommend it to anyone
