Is it just a Yeti 575 on stilts or a completely diffferent kind of animal?

Good review – that’s kinda what i came up with when i had a play on it too. Silly quick, like a train when you get going!
Needs some room to play though, bit like owning a Newfoundland – you will need a big garden.
Questionable 66 degree head angle,certainly felt (and visually looks) a fair bit steeper than an alpine 160.
You need an MBR review for all the angles n measurements to be FACT
The 66 was measured while sat on the bike with 1/3rd sag. It’s about 67 in the pics.
You have much of a problem with the dhx air?I gave up trying and stuck a rp23 on in the end-much better.Not really sure its an ideal burly/coil mini hucker type thing tho-more of a trail bike for people who are under the impression they need 7″ of travel for some reason.
nice review. i want one
Is that Kielder (Deadwater) Red trail?
I sort of like the idea of a long travel ‘XC’ bike (its not quite a FR/DH bike). 67 deg head angle isn’t terrible for a 160mm forked bike (Same as a Cube Fritzz). Just that 1/3 of 7″ of travel could equate to a LOT of ‘see-sawing’ under heavy braking me thinks?
reminds me of my Nicolai Helius AM, just not as well constructed.
