The Good
Many size options. Medium fit perfect in the saddle with shorter 580’ish ETT for me at just under 5’7”, while still having between 455-460 reach depending on flip chip and headset positions. Climbs excellent with minimal bob. Snappy but still plush enough over slow tech stuff to not be jarring. Shines on the downs with feel of more travel (140/160). Storage area and bag are perfect size for pump, plug kit and multi-tool.
The Bad
Only complaint is slight rattle when riding chunky terrain coming from the forward section of the down tube due to the plastic internal cable guide tubes. They’re not affixed/molded to the carbon frame like other manufacturer frames. Gonna try motofoam to fix with easy access with the storage compartment.
Overall Review:

Great Trail bike (or enduro bike in the right hands) with tons of adjustment for the perfect fit as well as sizes to fit just about any rider out there.
