It features full suspension and can be used for styles including Cross Country, All-Mountain, Enduro, Bike Park, and Slopestyle. Proceeds go to Wheels 4 Life, a charity that donates bikes to people in Third World countries. Many of these bikes are selling for way below value. The auction last week of  the foldable hardtail went for $3251 with an MSRP of $5500. This one has an MSRP of $4500 and may do the same. The auction ends on Sunday, March 4th.
