This bike was surprising. I expected the 120mm of travel number to produce a bike that was more of a traditional XC/Trail feel, but the frame geometry on this bike produces an incredible amount of stability - especially at higher speeds. It pedals incredibly well, even with any of the shock damping turned off, but the suspension definitely did a good job of taking up the bigger impacts. The bike was not incredibly playful - but it was extremely confidence inspiring.
