    Summary

    Expirience with the ARC8 EXTRA XT

    ARC8 EXTRA XT Review With 170 mm suspension travel at the fork, ARC8 does without the typical rear suspension with "glider system". With a 64 degree head tube angle and a reach that tends to be long you can certainly speak of a modern geometry. Due to the interplay of a relatively long top tube and a low stack, the riding position is sporty. The EXTRA XT shows what its capable of in the downhill. We like: 5 years warranty on the frame!
