Strength:

Light, carbon fibre, very fast, smooth, control, looks sick.

Weakness:

Shimano XT drive train, rough, noisey. Rockshox sid team lockout no so lockout, may need adjusting.

Fine cycle, definitely buy one if looking for an MTB and considering the Fuji, though I was lucky with the internet deal I received. I ride a road bike so riding this for the first time was like driving a tractor, yet in the scrub it is pure delight. Cant wait for some serious down hill water bars.

This bike is a rock star. Done some 8hr MTB races along with x-terra's with this bike. Its so fun .. fast, quick and light. Can be scary fun. I do 5-8 hour rides on this bike all the time it will beat you up.

Strength:

Great component spec (they didn't cut corners), light weight (23 pounds), super stiff, responsive, great power transfer

Weakness:

Rigidity can be harsh on rough terrain, stock grips are not comfortable (obviously no big deal),

This is a great light weight racing hard tail XC bike right out of the box. Literally, all I did to get it race ready was swapped the seatpost out and poured some tire sealant into the tubeless tires and it was ready to go.

The SLM excels on buffed out single track and at climbing. I take it on some rough trails, but I suffer behind the guys with full suspension. Then I catch them and drop them on the long climbs.

If you regularly ride super harsh trails, you may want to consider something more forgiving (steel). The carbon hardtail has almost no bump dampening; every hit goes straight to the saddle.

As a race bike, I have no regrets in buying this. And as for bling factor, I have had a number of complements on this bike at races and on rides.

Similar Products Used:

Mostly full suspension XC or all mountain rigs. But I have been racing road and cross longer than mtb.
