Model/Year: 2015

Pros: Amazing climbing, nimble, and it is extremely solid and stable. It rolls over anything and almost feels more like an enduro bike than a trail bike on downhills.

Cons: None

Recommendation: This bike is pretty darn near perfect. If you want to buy it, buy it.

Cons: Tires. - I put on Kenda Nevegale's

Recommendation: Amazing.

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: The ultimate combination of light weight and all mountain durability.

Fantastically stiff, solid and confidence inspiring.

Excellent maneuverability for a big-wheeled trail bike.

Every feature you could possibly want in a trail bike.

Cons: Sticker shock

Some riders may want a longer cockpit without having to step up a frame size.

Could perform better with beefier tires.

Recommendation: Lots of bikes claim to be a one-bike quiver, but this one comes closer than any I've seen. This bike rips for anything short of full on downhill racing. Recommended for a wide variety of riders and adaptable to any terrain.
