Model/Year: 2018 Carbon NX

Pros: Very stable. Like the 27.5 wheels with the ability to go 26 or 29 . Adding a Bluto really improves trail riding (non-snow).

Cons: Wish the seatpost size was more standard, i.e. 30.9 or 31.6. The 27.2 really limits the available droppers one can use.

Model/Year: 2014 Carbon

Pros: great handling
light weight

Recommendation: I rode this near the end of a brutal hill ride. One of the gentleman I was with traded bikes with me. I couldn't believe how nicely his 1x10 set up was and the feel of the bike was nice. I normally ride a small frame and this was the medium but the geometry of it was good.
