Pros: Light weight, just a hair over 30 lbs with pedals. Very fun and flickable on the trail. Fantastic climber, and very capable descender. Fox Rhythm fork is supple and fun for the price. Fox Evol shock is sufficient for this trail bike. Tires and rims are tubeless ready. 1x11 is excellent. SLX components are also very fun and sufficient. Price of $2,899 CDN is unbeatable.

Cons: Nobby Nic's are a little under gunned for the trails this bike was designed for.

Recommendation: Absolute must buy. For those who don't have $5,000 to drop on a new ride, this bike delivers everything the other boutique brands bring, for a fraction of the price. Before buying this bike, I test rode a dozen other bikes, and couldn't justify paying twice the price for the "name". It just doesn't make sense.
