“The first ride consisted of a lot of tinkering, but as soon as everything was sorted, it handled just like my Demo,” Marshall explained. While most complain about the weight of an e-bike, in the DH bike category, the penalty is barely 10 pounds. It’s a small price to pay to transform your bike from needing to be pushed or driven up a hill to being able to ride the bike from start to end. “My favorite DH trail used to take me an hour to push up, for a 5 minute descent. I’m now looping that three or four times in the same amount of time. It’s unreal,” says Marshall.
After seeing the final build, it’s easy to see why this was a dream bike. E-bike bashing aside, it’s one bad ass looking machine. The black, gold, and yellow color scheme is pure class, while the bike’s aggressive stance let’s you know it’s not just a pretty face. Marshall excitedly said, “Believe it or not, the Kenevo DH handles like a dream. The geo is spot on for what I wanted. The first ride out, I took it to the steepest climbs around, not only did I make everything, but it actually climbs better than my Levo or StumpJumper on the loose stuff. It’s opened my eyes to what is really going to be possible with these bikes. I am fired up with the amount of potential flowing in.”
