Great value, solid performance, solid components
I'd like it to be lighter, but for the price? It's super solid!
I had an XLT 1.0 as my main rig for about 3 years, and I rode the snot out of this thing! Great performance, great value (fox fork and fox shock, plus a decent drivetrain? Awesome!).
But at 32ish lbs, this is no feather weight. But if you're looking for an aggressive trail/light AM machine on a budget, check the Dakar XLT out!
