A lot of televisions on the new Driver are rounded, with the exemption of the seat tube. Kona sculpted the seat tube to serve as a mud guard for the shock, enabling it to remain safeguarded enough to be positioned inverted. Mud dropping was a huge factor in the commercial design of the bike. Notice the data sheet on the structure describing whatever from chainstay size to headset type.
If there were an all-out pedal drag race between all the downhill bikes we examined, the V10C would handily reveal them its seat rails; it exceled at discovering rate, especially in places where various other bikes obtained stalled. It also drew high marks for flexibility, as the rear suspension is flexible from 8.5 to 10 inches.
While we 'd normally leave the limericks and whatnot for the Irishmen, we couldn't keep back on our appreciation of the GT Fierceness Team's straight-ahead steamroller sensibilities. Check it out here:
Specialized didn't skimp on the Standing' parts, either. Its 2.3-inch Butcher DH tires are fast-rolling and instilled self-confidence in completely dry, wet, hardpack as well as loose conditions. The RockShox Boxxer RC fork and Fox Van RC shock are also solid selections.
I'm a big fan of how this bike's suspension feels. It seems like numerous different bikes all wrapped right into one. If you want to hammer harsh routes then the suspension eats up the blows and propels the bike much faster as well as much faster through the gnar. Then if you intend to pump as well as play, the bike has the ability to stay up, squash and jump. These two different qualities truly evokes the Wickedness Rebellion, a fighter that wanted to dance.
Our testers enjoyed the bike's adjustability as well as the link's all-bump level of sensitivity. Several of our testers really felt that it was only once you got up to speed up on 'big-boy' terrain that you might fully realize the Scott Bettor's true character, however I located it to be an immensely spirited and fun bike long prior to you reached greater speeds. Its toughness, stiffness and also personality would certainly make it as much a park bike as an auto racing beast.
