This TransX internal dropper post can drop up to
100mm. It’s good, but at least one of our test riders
wished it had a little more travel.
The great-performing Kenda Havok
tires in 27.5x2.6 inches are right
on the cusp of plus-sized, and
with the volume, there is room for
varying pressure for the ultimate in
grip for cornering and braking.
The 2018 RockShox Revelation provides 150mm of
travel. Mated with the 67-degree head angle, you can
have the confidence to descend anything.
The rear travel is very linear, and
the head tube angle at 67 degrees is
slack enough to make it very stable
and predictable on technical trails. At
48 pounds, the Haro is fairly light for an
electric mountain bike, and it was really
nimble and easy to toss around. It cornered on tight switchbacks effortlessly.
The oversized Havok Plus tires
are a preference for some, but others
don’t like them, instead preferring the
more traditional (and narrower) tires.
Depending on rider preference and the
terrain you ride, your mileage may vary.
We love them because they float easily
the bike is on rails, and can be really
well tuned to the terrain by varying
the air pressure. There can be a huge
contact patch, leading to better and
more precise braking and great traction
for acceleration, as well as running
more pressure to allow less contact and
