"In fact, I’d go as far as saying the Meltdown may be one of the best climbing 160mm travel enduro bikes I’ve ridden" Zach Overholt Read the full review here
"Mountain Bikes are generally either good at climbing uphill, or good at absorbing bumps. But the holy grail of MTB suspension design is one that’s good at both." "Those willing to take a risk on a startup and an unproven build might find reward in a revolutionary trail ride."
Even in tech-savvy Germany, the bike's design is turning heads:
"Its design allows for the rear shock to be fully extended on step climbs, all while retaining bump absorption capabilities. This", says founder Brian Berthold, "will effectively offer an extra 3 to 4-degrees in steepness at the head tube during a climb that comparable travel bikes."
(Translated from German) "The bikes with the extraordinary damper control provided some time ago for a look........ it promises the driving behavior of a hardtail..... but is designed to ensure that impacts are absorbed as much as possible."
