The first ride review was not favorable. They called it very twitchy. It has a super steep head angle. Maybe an angle-set could fix it a little bit. Seems to be better options.

You should re-read the first ride impressions?

"Overall, it rode well and I can see it appealing to racers looking for something a bit different and super light."

i dont know .. we have these downhill sections here, when i used to ride them on my klein i would have to stop every now and then because i swear flying rocks would have dented my don tube..i find it hard to believe that a sub 1000 gram mtb frame will last two seasons...and the build they showed with those enve wheels... if seen lighter build with stan's...
just doesnt ad up for me..
