    Pros
    Great all mountain ride, good bike for all aspects of riding, climbs well, goes down just as good.

    In my opinion the Reign is one of the best do everything platforms available. This is mostly due to the Maestro suspension design that is firm when pedaling but very active on the rough. I personally have built mine up as an AM bike but it also performs beautifully my local jump/freeride trails too.

    The Reign is well balanced and provides good feedback when riding.

    The downsides are mainly build specific and have been addressed in the newer versions. The 1-1/8 steerer limits the fork types you can run and the lack of ISCG tabs is really a downer. Lastly the cable clips nearest to the headtube tend to creak and make noise after a couple of rides.

    At the end of the day I can't really complain and absolutely love my Reign. I'd recommend them to anyone!

    Pros
    - Maestro suspension design is the best in the business
    - Minimal pedal bob
    - Pedals like a dream
    - Suspension feels bottomless
    - Solid do everything platform

    Cons
    - 1-1/8 Steerer tube
    - No ISCG tabs
    - Bearings/pivots aren't protected
    - Cable clip by headtube tend to squeak

    A great bike with lots of potential it can even be built up a bit tougher...A good change is to put a 36mm fork with 20mm axle up front and it can take bigger hits....

    Pros
    This bike rode very well descending with this was very fun it was stable and solid. decent control in corners and absorbed the bumps wonderfully.

    Cons
    This bike was a bit heavy the way i rode it
