Pros: Just an IH Yakuza K renamed and repainted. The IH Yakuza was an awesome built bike frame designed to take some serious beating with the simplicity of single-pivot suspension.

Cons: Airborne bought IH left over fleet and renamed them and repainted them.

Recommendation: This renamed and repainted bike is originally a super tough frame for gnarly DH and big hit shredding without dishing out thousands of dollars for a name.

Model/Year: 2010

Pros: Everything! This bike has taken everything I've given it.

Cons: None!

Recommendation: This bike has been great! I have yet to take it to an actual DH course, but I've given it a good thrashing on some trails and doing some urban stuff around town where I live. It's very responsive and handles great. And the price is incredible. I highly recommend!

Pros: Basically everything: Frame, components, graphics the ride, the price tag... amazing bike!

Cons: What cons?

Recommendation: As with the other Airborne bikes, the MSRP doesn't really reflect the actual price tag. This bike is selling for an astonishing $1,300ish over on On top of that, the component spec on this bike is incredible, and the performance is spot on. I'm not trying to be spammy, but I wrote a lengthy (well over 1,000 words) review over on my website that would not fit in this little box:
