Is the new SB5 better than the old one? Undoubtedly. Updated geometry and more dialed details make this trail ripper an even better all-around trail bike. While bested by others in terms of terrain sensitivity, the SB5 provides riders with loads of manageable trail feedback and a quick response that'll make you feel like you're flying. An active and aggressive rider will reap the greatest rewards from this bike, though at a deeper sag point it's a bit more comfortable for the casual rider. In the end we found the SB5 to show little compromise uphill or down. It's an excellent climber and proved to be very fun on smooth, flowy sections of trail thanks to its playful nature. Those looking for a capable and fun short-travel trail bike that can pedal many miles will be pleased with the SB5.
