The experts agree. This is it. THE trail bike. They say it has flawless traction. Power uphill. Makes the technical easier and the gnarly smoother. Requires minimal rider input. Accelerates with authority. Turns on a dime. Crams the heart and soul of the mountain bike experience into one bike. Its possibilities are endless. (Seriously, they said that.) Oh yeah, maybe most important: IS A BLAST TO RIDE. And even with all the praise they heaped on it, the new Pro Carbon version still weighs just a bit over 23 pounds.
