Most of our testers were stunned at the ride high quality of the Standing II and also instantly really felt comfortable on it. At 38.5 pounds, it's definitely not the lightest of the number, however that didn't keep it from feeling really dynamic as well as playful.

It felt a little high and steep, not always as a result of the angles, yet as a result of a fairly lengthy backside and also brief front end.
