Strengths:    latural stiffness, excellent shock, adjustability

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
This frame and shock is awsome, so plush you dont feel anything, i compaired it directly to my old patriot and there is no comparison. this frame is super stiff and the evolver shock is so right for all mountain and light freeride, but the actual frame could take so much more. frame and shock weighs in at 7lb which is super light for a 6.6 inch travel frame. lovely smooth lines and with a sliding shock mount you can slacken the head angle to give you the feel of a downhill frame. This is sooooooo cool, if your an orange fan buy it.
