We've put Santa Cruz's new flagship enduro rig through its paces on the toughest trails South OC has to offer. It's an amazing s---eating-grin-inducing ride. We like to run it with the flip-chip in the high setting and wheelbase lengthened for the best all-terrain capability and confidence inspiring stability.
The AXS wireless shifting and dropper make for the cleanest cockpit with exceptionally precise performance. Just remember to take out the batteries when you're going on long road trips (found this out the hard way). Also, this monster truck-sized XXL frame just barely fit in our picture frame.
