Very versatile bike that rides smooth over obstacles, and feels like a long travel bike. It is pretty playful for the size while maintaining an extremely stable feel. For reference, while biking back to the car from the trail, it was an effortless no hands cruise down hill, where as the hightower felt wobbly in the handle bars.
In my opinion, it corners well, can climb tech terrain great, and can roll over pretty big/steep obstacles without a problem. Its a great all around buy for anyone concerned about climbing efficiency on the more rugged trails and still looking to do it all.
I even took it to a pump track and hit some springy table tops. It preformed great and loading the suspension sprung me into a proper flow with out much need for a lot of speed or pedeling.
If you're looking to pedal uphill, and get on the more untamed trail, this is probably a great bike for you. I wouldn't really recommend this for shuttling DH.
Feel free to hit me up if you have questions or are wondering if this is the right bike for you.
