Rider Feedback


Hopping on this bike is like strapping yourself to a rocket! It was no surprise that the bike pedalled extremely well, as that is what anyone would expect from a bike in this category - the real surprise is how well that pedalling efficiency is balanced out with the great steering geometry. Setup with a 120mm suspension fork, and the Swinger dropouts in the front position, it felt wonderfully nimble in the back - without being too hyperactive in the front. Knowing that fork travel could still increase a bit more, and the chainstay length is adjustable made my imagination soar. I pictured myself both racing for the hole-shot, and grinding away in the backcountry - both on the same bike. For a bike that is light, looks good, and is easy to own, the LES makes a strong case.
