Our review

Superb on road comfort and handling but you won't want to venture too deep into the rough stuff
Buy if, You'll be spending most of the time on tarmac with the occasional off-piste excursion
Pros: Exemplary road manners, powerful and well modulated braking
Cons: You need to set up tubeless to realise its off-road capability, rather harsh front end
