Enduro has been a popular new segment of the mountain biking world and this bike certainly fits the bill. It also performs incredibly well as a fun bike. The SAM features very slack geometry, long travel, the Twin Bearing Suspension platform, and a killer parts spec make for a bombing fast decender that is still highly "pedal-able," as the kids say.

The top end SAM 1.0 comes tricked out with the genius SRAM XX1 1x11 drivetrain, Reynolds 27.5 AM Carbon "Black Label" wheels, RockShox Monarch and Pike shock and fork, and a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post. If you want to have fun all day and rip some descents, this is the bike to do it on.
