Delivered Wedensday in a box. Put together Thursday by myself and taken for a 45 min test ride. Then put to test at Saariselä MTB Stages (saariselkamtb.com). Friday 47km, Saturday 77 km and Sunday 54 km. And it passed with honors! Great comfort on rocky trails, great climbing grip and perfect downhill capabilities.
looks: 10/10, unboxing: 10/10.
First of all this bike is just beautiful, just by looking at it, you know they've worked hard on all the details of this bike.
Now performance.... I love to pedal hard and go uphill as fast as I can, I use to be a downhill rider (10 years ago) but now I've been riding XC bikes, so I knew is was going to be a bit penalized going uphill with a 120mm travel bike.... this is not the case this bike goes up very very fast. The only this that slows you down a little bit are the forekaster 2,35 tires but that's not an issue (you can change those if you're more about going uphill fast).
When it comes to flat terrain she flies!!!!
And now the best part of it Downhill, this bike is super fast and easy to handle, I haven't felt this way going downhill in years. You can jump, take berms, switch lines and fell incredibly safe, and aggressive at the same time. The other day I was on a trail going as fast as guys with downhill bikes.
The geometry the suspension the components, everything works perfectly.
GREAT BIKE CONGRATS TO INTENSE FOR BUILDING THIS BIKE
