Details

From the bike park to enduro tracks to steep singletrack shredding, this all-mountain bruiser has swagger to spare. The lightweight, super-stiff aluminum frame is long and low, and its Maestro suspension helps you float through the rough stuff.

Built on an ALUXX SL aluminum frameset that’s designed to optimize its 27.5 wheels, Reign gives you the capabilities and the confidence to push your limits on aggressive terrain. Its trunnion-mount Maestro rear suspension system offers 160mm of smooth, active travel and features a lighter, stiffer Advanced Forged Composite upper rocker arm. Updated geometry with a longer cockpit, a tapered OverDrive steerer tube design, and air or coil shock-compatible mounts are all aimed at maximizing control—especially at speed and on rowdy terrain.

    Comments:

    This may be the all in one bike everyone is looking for. It climbs flawlessly without loss of power or traction and decends like a Cadillac - so smooth. I would not consider this a race bike as it is a bit too heavy, but with some lighter wheels and some other light weight goodies, who knows? Can't beat this bike for the price. Buy one, you won't regret it.

      I have only ridden this bike a couple times so far but I am impressed. The main thing I noticed was how well balanced it is and how easy it is to correct while riding a skinny or similar. Just riding this bike has increased my confidence over obstacles which I wouldn't have even tried before. Brakes are good so far. I haven't dialed the bike in completely yet. However I am very impressed so far.

      Comments:

      I have had this bike for a few months.It's a weapon when going downhill and just takes all that I can throw at it. SRAM X.7 shifting is spot on and reliable in the toughest of situations. I'm not a fan of the Shimano SLX front derailleur but it works. The Bomber Fork has plenty of length to negotiate the good stuff and the Fox shock is great on climbs. The color is much more vibrant in real life. It is a bit heavy but when riding it's very well balanced.I wouldn't recommend for casual cyclist just because there are many lighter and more friendly bikes for that market; however if you want to Reign then this could be for you!

      for the money u cant go wrong all sram x7 goodies shifts really nice. first time for hyd breaks nice feel to them. it will climb just about any thing i was amazed! suspension is a nice combo with fox in back and marzocchi bomber forks up front. front is not as plush as i would like but a little fine tunning maybee?
