    Summary

    Expirience with the Superior XF 979 TR

    Superior XF 979 TR Review Visually, the XF 979 TR is hardly distinguishable from the Racefully of the Czechs. This is because the platform uses the same main frame. However, with 130 mm up front on the fork, an adapted rear triangle and grippier tires, it clearly stands out from its slimmer brother on the trail. With its balanced handling, riding the Trailbike of Superior feels really intuitive. At the seating position, Superior combines the best of two worlds: It´s balanced character is a good mix of sporty efficiency and a comfortable upright postiion. If you love crisp downhill runs, there are other Trailbike around under 6000 Euro that would suit you better. But one should not underestimate that wheels are extremely important for the riding experience on the trail. Superior knows this and installed higher quality than the competitors at the price of 4599 Euro .
