Strength:

Was a strong bike that could handle a beating. It was very comfortable to ride and could climb and descend very well.

Weakness:

It was heavy and the magura brakes failed. Also the bearings for the rear shock failed and K2 could not replace them. I ended up having to break the bike down for parts because it could not be fixed.

All and all I loved this bike. I would like to purchase another one but they are very hard to find.

Strength:

I ride just about 3 times a week. it has never let me down.Very good specs. I was supprised how well it handles turns and hills.

Weakness:

I had a problem with the Magura disc brakes but I have a great mechanic all He had to do was to give it a good bleed.I wish they would have install a better rear shock. Other wise is a great bike.

For the money is a great bike, good specs .It looks like a SUV but it handles like a porche.
