We’ve overhauled the Line 10 for 2020 and made it even more of a monster. It’s now got a slack 65 degree head angle for downhill control and a steep 74.5 degree seat angle so you can winch back up easily. It’s gone boost and bolt through front and rear for stiffness and we’ve put some big 2.6” tacky tyres on it for year round grip and so you can roll over pretty much anything. It’s got a long front end but we have managed to keep the 430mm rear end so it remains playful on the back wheel. Components wise we have gone for the relaible SRAM NX 1X11 groupset, RockShox Recon Solo air forks with 140mm of travel and the KS Rage-I dropper with 125mm of travel. Is this the best hardtail under a grand? We certainly think so.
