    My rec is basically what they have done in 2017- lighten the load on the shock system.

    Pros
    Excellent suspension, Kool dual "trigger" setting. Rides over everything and climbs well with adjustable suspension.

    Cons
    Push pull shock will require 3-5 weeks of rebuild at some point when the seals start to leak. - push pull shock is heavier than it has to be.

    I have ridden this work horse for 3 years and have been extremely pleased. Was concerned it was too much of a bike for my abilities but over time I have grown into this work of art. It is well made and has solid components.

    Pros
    Versatile.. handles everything. . Tubless ready and has a trigger that changes its suspension.

    Cons
    Can't think of any

    As an overweight mountain bike enthusiast who no longer races, this bike is perfect for me! It handles basically any trail in Wisconsin from ripping some fast singletrack laps at Kettles or Minooka but then you can flick it to flow mode and it had no problems with the rocks at Blue Mound or the jumps at Quarry Ridge with plenty of gearing to make it back to the tops of the hills. Took this for some epic XC riding in Colorado and then the next day it handled lift duty at Keystone so it's probably the ideal bike for Colorado too. The drivetrain is fun and simple and I've had no issues with the dropper post, the first one I've owned, as I'm still learning when to use it! It feels pretty nimble for it's size (large 29er with 130mm of travel) so I can practice getting air. I think I use the elevate mode more than others and found that the position is perfect for technical climbing. This bike wouldn't be my choice for racing XC on, but if you're looking for an XC bike, you shouldn't be looking at a Trigger. But if you just want to ride mountain bike trails all over and not worry about bike choice, this should be your bike choice!

    Pros
    -Lightweight
    -Durable
    -Two travel settings gives you versatility at the flick of a switch
    -Simple suspension design, carbon frame and 1x drivetrain is quiet and smooth
    -Carbon Lefty Fork is stiff and tracks like a beast!
    -Built in suspension in the carbon layering makes you feel like you have even more travel at times!

    Cons
    -Cost
    -Some might not like that rear travel is adjustable but front is not, but not a big deal to me.
    -1x drivetrain means above 25mph downhill you need to coast
    -Setup takes some time
    -No rear lockout (although a nice real climb travel mode) means it could be a bit of a bore riding to the trailhead or up a long sustained road climb.
    -Built in suspension in the carbon layering chipped paint under the clear coat a little so it looks a little scary

    This is a good bike with a blend of good components.

    Pros
    This bike has the extra travel that my Scalpel lacks, which make it a bike that can handle more aggression while riding.

    Cons
    It is a little heavier than my Scalpel but only by a pound or so.
