    Summary

    Expirience with the ARC8 ESSENTIAL XT

    ARC8 ESSENTIAL XT Review The ESSENTIAL XT is an attempt to cross the propulsion of a CC bike with the skills of an enduro. The combination of a 64,7 degree head tube angle and a long wheelbase calms down the handling of the ARC8, even if you ride fast. The sporty riding position allows for very effective pedaling. For trail lovers, one point dominates: the ARC8 scores in the decent with an extremely good geometry, a high-quality suspension and grippy tires. The guarantee of 5 years proves that ARC8 puts a lot of trust in its products.
