Airborne Sabre XC Hardtail

5/5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $249.99

Product Description

The versatile Sabre is the real deal: a no-baloney off-road machine you can actually take off-road. The Sabre is designed to perform the same as premium bikes that cost over a hundred dollars more, like the Specialized Hard Rock or Giant's Boulder. Plus the Sabre has an added benefit over its competition: disc brakes! The Sabre comes stock with Tektro's Novela mechanical discs for worry-free stopping power when you need it. There are other nice touches on the Sabre that you don't find on other bikes near its price: oversized aluminum bars and stem, and a WTB Speed-V saddle. Proven stable geometry and beefy aluminum frame make this a great first "serious" mountain bike for the rider who's bored with life on the bike path. Equipped with an SR Suntour XCT V4 suspension fork, and Shimano 21-speed drive train with 14-34 wide-range cassette, the Sabre is ready to hit the dirt when you are.

Strengths:    Great value, comfortable geometry, decent components for price, great service after sale, company stands behind product. Bike can grow as you do in sport by upgrading components.

Weaknesses:    When you consider price weaknesses are not so weak. Some of the components will need to be replaced eventually if you ride hard. Smallest frame 17".

Bottom Line:   
Buy this bike you will not be disappointed. Can upgrade and bike will grow with you. Bike was packed great, frame very well wrapped. Worried about buying bike online not from airborne I had small problem sent email instant response and solution, great customer service. Assembly very basic and easy, minimum tools needed. If your on a budget or new to sport this bike is for you. I bought 17" for my daughter 5'3" was perfect. Looks good too.

Sabre fencing+ MTB

Sounds like a strange combination of sports but it works great for me. Keeps me fit, great for physical stamina and mind focus. Any fencers out there? I spend way more time fencing now and I don't miss MTB that much... PS Oh, is there an obsession forum?Read More »
