Pros Confident and stable descender, modern progressive geometry, comes to life at speed, sporty rear endOutstanding all around performance, more capable on the descents than its predecessor, great climber, excellent buildExcellent climbing abilities, impressive downhill performance, high fun factor, tremendous build kitWell-rounded, modern geometry, fun on a wide range of terrain, more capable than previous modelLightweight, playful, well-rounded, modern geometry, solid component specification
Cons A little heavy, sluggish low-speed handling, less well-rounded than competitionExpensive, still not a full-on enduro bike, a touch on the heavy sideExpensive, pivots came loose a few times during testingA little heavy for carbon, chattery over high frequency chopNot a brawler, Fox 34 fork can be overwhelmed
Bottom Line Kona's Process 153 CR 27.5 is a playful long-travel trail bike that craves speed and charging down aggressive terrainThe best gets even better, and the V2 Ripmo is the best all-around trail bike we've ever testedA killer daily driver that delivers feathery climbing performance and well-rounded downhill performanceCapable, versatile, and hard-charging, the new Tallboy is a fresh take on Santa Cruz's shorter travel 29erThe new and improved Ibis Ripley is one of the best all around mid-travel trail bikes we've ever ridden
