Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Very fast, nimble, and extremely lightweight. Lightest frame on the market, and is a very good deal for the price. Unbelievably stiff, and your back wheel control is better than any hardtail bike I've ridden. Also very responsive.

Cons: Unlike the newer models, the headtube is longer, and makes handling in the front and aggressive tight cornering slightly awkward. Nothing to be afraid of, it's only noticeable when riding at a high level or racing. I would definitely ignore this when buying.

Recommendation: This bike is an all-round demon of an XC race bike. I would recommend it for anyone on any level. It will without a doubt improve your performance.
