The Independent Drivetrain suspension platform has been customized for 2014. The moderately high major pivot gives a rearward axle path so the suspension demolishes hits while the drifting bottom brace mitigates the chain growth of the layout. The result is a supportive feel with the stroke, allowing the bike to be flipped around and really feel bottomless, specifically on larger hits.
We rode and discussed the Scott Bettor 10 for the 2013 Holy Bible Of Bike Tests, and we liked it (See? Right here's that review.). Actually, we liked it so much so that we had to ensure we liked it as high as we did. At least that was our justification for getting more ride time aboard the Gambler. We had one shipped as much as Whistler for some bike park bashing throughout the summertime.
We were sent a tool framework, yet after riding it some a lot more, I would certainly select a large size. The slack headangle and also brief reach had the tendency to have us hanging over the rear axle, which, although remarkable for some circumstances, indicated that the biker was required to move from fore and also aft on the bike throughout the ride.
The Fierceness has undergone a radical remodeling. It lost its carbon skin and 'reverted' to a light weight aluminum framework. This is not only cheaper and much less lengthy than carbon, however allows kinematics and also geometries to be changed throughout advancement. That does not indicate the current design isn't really much more modern and sophisticated compared to it ever before has been. As a matter of fact, a lot of the testers felt this Fury was a renovation over previous designs.
Nonetheless, we had a lot of time to change our riding style to suit the Gambler and also what we found was a bike that, once you 'd grasped it, seemed like a good friend ... one that wants to cut loose and create havoc all frequently.
Our testers had quite solid viewpoints when it concerned fit and some dealing with aspects. Riders reported that it really felt cramped in the front, causing a weird setting that left you either standing high with short triangulation or low with your backside over the back and also joints down. It really felt a little high and also high, not always because of the angles, yet because of a reasonably lengthy back end and also brief front end.
Our testers had very solid point of views when it concerned fit and some taking care of elements. Motorcyclists reported that it felt cramped in the front, leading to an odd position that left you either standing high with short triangulation or reduced with your backside over the rear as well as arm joints down. It felt a little high as well as high, not necessarily because of the angles, but due to a relatively long backside and also short front end.
The actual standout of the show was the Öhlins TTX 22M back shock, designed by the Swedish suspension firm particularly around the Demo 8 (and Enduro Evo) exclusively for Specialized. The high-volume, twin-tube layout has a straightforward adjustment range, with high- and also low-speed dials that maintain the shock functioning within the useable series of the bike.
