Pros: Great xc bike. It's my first full suspension bike and couldn't be happier.

Cons: Only 100mm of travel. So if you are looking for a downhill bike you might consider another bike. Somewhat pricy, make sure you are into mountain biking before buying.

Recommendation: Love it for most trail riding. Would like to maybe add an 27.5 bike with more suspension to complement my rift zone.

Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Super fast and very comfortable. Haven't ridden in 15 years because of back problems. This full suspension is an answered prayer to get me riding again. I'm 53 and racing mountain bikes again. Woohoo!

Cons: It is a little heavy but don't notice once it's rolling.

Recommendation: Bought it online at end of 2013. It's an awesome bike. Love it.

Pros: Very fast, great handling, comfortable and looks good

Cons: A little on the heavy side but still climbs like a goat

Recommendation: I'm extremely happy with everything about the bike so far. I've owned it about 3 months and it is by far the fastest bike I've ridden. Love it and would definitely recommend it.
