Strengths:    quick,nimble, amazing suspension. climbs so well for 160mm. feels like a mini downhill when descending

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
finally got to give the bike a good bit of trail time so here is my review.
ive owned a lapierre spicy 916 and a ginat trance x4 and this blows them both out of the water. its the best bike i have ever ridden. it climbs amazingly well, the 27.5 wheels really help when grinding over rocks and the suspension just glues you to the trail. pedalling on flat is also excellent, again 27.5 wheels really help here and help maintain momentum. its descending tough that really blew me away. on one trail that i have done numerous times (a narrow loose rock steep chute) i would usually feel alot of chatter and the bike would be a little hard to control. with the pike on this thing it was amazing and controlled. something i can say about the bike in general actually. it feels poised and controlled in every siuation. this lead me to believe i was invincible, and thats when i got too cocky and crashed. breaking my new sram x7 derailer in the process! that was my fault though not the bike. the pike is the best fork i have ever used by a mile. bottomless yet stiff and plush,just the perfect fork. as good and stable as it was in high speed descents,it was equally impressive in narrow tight twisty switchback sections and flowy natural singletrack. the extremely low standover lets you get right over the bike,i have never got so low! the back end just whips around corners and feels nice and stiff .it can do it all,from flowy xc to gravity enduro(where it will excel) to gnarly downhill. i cannot rate this bike highly enough and am really excited by how much this bike can improve me as a rider. kona have knocked it clean out of the park with this one. 10/10 buy it!!!
