Special features with my build:
I have my dropper, rear brake and shifter cable all coming out the rider’s left side of the integrated housing and my front brake routed through my forks steerer tube. This gives me the ability to do barspins/tailwhips.
Why i like my new ride:
I am absolutely loving the Warden. It is by far the most capable, fun bike I have ever owned. It climbs super well and with the 170mm suspension it handles anything i throw at it with ease. To top it off, it jumps just like a small travel slope bike. The Warden is definitely the “quiver killer”.
My favorite place to ride:
I’d have to say my favorite place to ride is Kamloops, B.C. I love the fast speed of their trails and the wide variety it offers. It has everything from massive jump trails to fast, steep single track.
I bought this bike to do it all, from bike park laps to long enduro pedals and sessions at jumps. So far it has not disappointed.
