    Summary

    Expirience with the ARC8 Evolve FS XT

    ARC8 Evolve FS XT Review The Evolve FS XT is an extravagant hardtail from Switzerland. We really liked the jaw-dropping weight of the complete bike. With 10,7 kg, the ARC8 Fully is a real lightweight. ARC8 is taking no risks when it comes to its bike handling. The moderate geometry data conveys a balanced handling. The sporty riding position allows for very effective pedaling. If you want to hunt Strava-KOMs uphill, the ARC8 is probably not the right bike for you. The Evolve FS XT has still a ace up its sleeve. When it goes down the hill, the absolutely coherent geometry always makes you want to come back for more. The guarantee of 5 years proves that ARC8 is behind its products. Pay attention when selecting your size: the ARC8 Evolve FS XT sizing runs big.
