Meet the perfect all-around hardtail: cross country heritage mixed with a versatile soul. With a tapered head tube and double-butted aluminum frames, the NITRO series is lightweight, strong and responsive. Enter a weekend race, rip trails with friends or just go for a spin — wherever and whatever you ride, the NITRO is just right.
Strengths: This is a really well spec'd bike for the money and am yet to find a fault. Dual air Reba RL is really good and will easily cope with the expectations of any hardtail enthusiast and gives a good level of adjustment.Sram X9 rear mech is a really nice bit of kit and along with the rest of the gearing is super smooth and reliable.In general i would have to say that this bike will do everything you ask of it as well as any hardtail in this price range or maybe even more expensive models!
Weaknesses: Honestly cant find any although am personally not sold on the elixir 5 brake set up but my personal taste should'nt put anyone off this impressive machine.
