Fast and responsive handling
Great on varying terrain conditions
Locking suspension system for segments of road to get to the trails
Heavy stock suspension
This is my first mountain bike, and I love it more every day. It is fast and with the larger tires easily rolls over obstacles and absorbs the impact. I upgraded the stock pedals to Shimano M530s instantly, and I plan to replace the fork with an air suspension to save weight. But all in all it is an extremely fun bike to ride. It holds up to fast downhills as well as regular cross country rides.
