Strength:

This bike is an absolute blast. Shred the downhill as fast as a downhill bike. but be able to pedal up if needs be. Big hits are no problem on this bike, of course it will bottom out faster than a downhill bike but if you land reasonably smooth then you're better than perfect. Super lightweight and fun. Easy to toss around. Best bike i've ever ridden hands down. I even got a new one of these over my specialized demo 8. Thats saying something.

Weakness:

Rear triangle is super light and flexes in corners a lot. To the point where its noticeable. Only on whistler though for me.

Such a banger bike. if you want a bike that does it all. Get one. I highly recommend it.

Great bike, for people who prefer more downhill than up and like to hit a few jumps, awesome on small to meduim jumps, handles medium drops to 10ft well, lightweight so great pedalling uphill (once you change out that stupid rear cluster), rerouted the rear brake hose from under the frame. Im 6ft - 87kg and the Large fits perfect, rear spring perfect, front spring maybe a little tight to get perfect sag but stops it bottoming out on the larger drops. Brakes o.k. nothing to write home about but you can up spec if want

Strength:

33lbs out of the box-light for a dh/park bike, geometry, handling, wheelset/parts package, pedals great, looks awesome

Weakness:

none so far except the grips shred up fast

The Giant Reign has been the do it all bike. The SX is the same thing but it leans more towards the guys that go a bit bigger than all mountain. It's light enough to pedal up most climbs(you need good legs with only the nine speed)and can hit anything on any downhill run. The new frame is super dialed and a lot easier to adjust and do maintenance. I am 6' tall and 160lbs and the large is perfect, if you want to do straight DH or park riding get the next size down. I use this bike from XC rides to the dirt jump and DH parks. If your stuck between the X1 and the SX go for the SX, a beefier parts package and for like $150 you can add the extra gears. Maestro is the best design out there to, as long as you can stay in the saddle the SX hooks up great on climbs without much bob at all. Fun fun bike easy to corner and throw around, jumps great to. If you want to go as close to a DH bike as you can and still pedal around get the SX.
