    Summary

    Expirience with the Forbidden Druid GX AXS RS

    Forbidden Druid GX AXS RS Review The Canadians from Forbidden design bikes with exactly one goal in mind. Maximum downhill performance. And so it comes that even the Druid GX AXS RS with 150 mm_front suspension travel on the fork is given a high-pivot rear end, which is otherwise only known from purebred enduros. The high main pivot point allows the rear wheel to first move to the rear when compressing the rear shock, which should make the characteristics, despite tightly measured 130 millimeters of travel in the rear, particularly smooth even in rough terrain. The combination of a 65 degree head tube angle and a long wheelbase calms down the handling of the Forbidden Fully, even if you ride fast. The balanced seating position is likely to suite the taste of the majority of bikers. On climbs, the Forbidden lets you sweat. Other bikes 7499 Euro climb better. For this, the shifting components are pretty much the best thing you can expect on a complete bike for 7499 Euro .
