A little of everything. Faster and more flowy than Fully Rigid, but still enough rocks, roots and switchbacks to keep the tech crowd happy too. Quite rideable uphill (which makes a nice after work loop possible using Silent Swamp to Preston to PBR to Fully Rigid and back down JoyRide), but uphill is challenging in parts. If descending, keep your speed in check and be aware of riders climbing.
