Feels great, great components, lock out, lightweight, smooth, tires, suspension, adjustable
Factory grips not great, hadle bar is a little narrow for me (6 foot, 2 inches) but usable
This bike is great. I have ridden all over the Frontrange of CO on rocky ascents and descents and it is a beast. Just enough travel for big hits and the lockout makes it a lightweight climber ready for the down. The lockout lever flicks on or off on the fly and in rhythm. Pedal stroke is nice and the ride is smooth. Super lightweight and proven components make it the go to bike for all mountain, enduro, or epic XC rides. Probably will get better grips, but that's just because my paws are big. Highly reccomend!!!
