If you're looking for an off-road rig that's light enough to climb with the mountain goats and sports enough travel for serious speed on the descents, Cannondale's Rush 29 1 is a great pick. Its low weight and efficiency allow it to handle like an XC racer while its 100mm of balanced travel front and rear gives you the freedom to flow any trail. RockShox's fork and shock allow precise adjustments to dial your rig in for any rider and terrain. Plus, the big 29er wheels roll fast and the Shimano drivetrain and discs provide legit shifting and braking in all conditions.
