GuyKesTV says the ONE-SIXTY 8000 is "seriously radical but superbly rideable"


With excellent coverage of the new ONE-SIXTY coming in, the latest is a glowing video review from renowned bike tester Guy Kesteven of GuyKesTV.

Having had his hands on the carbon fibre framed ONE-SIXTY 8000 model, he praised the "friendly and forgiving" ride character as well as the new geometry concept and AGILOMETER sizing that was "really helping with confidence and stability".

In particular, he enjoyed the new, steep seat angle of the bike, saying that it feels "feels absolutely bang on, really poised" on steep climbs and that the bike pedalled well without needing to resort to the shock lockout.

The choice of kit for the bike was also a hit, with Guy commenting that the "whole bike is just really damped and glued down" and that spec choices such as the tough Maxxis Double Down casing tyres meant the ride feel was "really smooth and supportive, really responsive".

Summing up, he said that the new bike "feels really planted and safe" and that it's "seriously radical but superbly rideable".
