The best performing bike I have ever owned! This bike started life as a standard stock Supreme and has been upgraded and tuned to the best of my ability with the help of some of the leading experts including NSR/Nigel Reeve, Rulezman Suspension and Downamics. The suspension is next level supple and supportive with a great balance f+r. The brakes have more power than you could ever need and a great feeling. The handlebars setup allows low vibration, a comfortable position and very sensitive and accurate steering.
The OChain and Oval Works chainring take out even more trail buzz, smooths out the ride even further and doesn’t squat at all under power. Tyres are specific front and rear for their shape on the rims. Spoke tensions dropped slightly for better compliance.
Overall, this bike must be one of the best handling DH bikes in the world, likely better than many on the World Cup circuit.
