Description

Surly's Krampus rolls fast, holds speed, and devours corners. Surly built its Boosted frame and fork out of tapered and butted chromoly and gave the frame a long top tube and short chainstays, so it's playful, smooth, versatile, and durable. The 29 x 3-inch Dirt Wizard tires on 40mm Alex rims take your trail ride to new heights of fun. These big tires offer increased traction, incredible float, and reduce the need for suspension because the large volume is plenty to smooth the trail. You'll also get a SRAM NX 1x drivetrain, Answer Pro Taper bars, and SRAM Level hydraulic brakes to make you the new master of terrain that used to be out of bounds.

Most fun I've ever had on a bike!

Pros:
Stable, Rugged
Cons:
Noisy
Best Uses:
Trail riding
I love the off-roading experience, and this bike delivers it. I lowered the pressure in the tires, and I was easily climbing over large rocks, logs, tree roots, mud puddles, and loose dirt. The mud spray from the huge tires made me look awesome, too. It is rather slow on pavement, but that's not what it's meant for. Can't wait to find more trouble to get into with this eager puppy.

Pros:
Versatile, Durable, Fun Fast Traction
Cons:
Heavy
Best Uses:

Purchased in fall 2013 after reading many positive reviews. I have not been disappointed! It would be my only mountain bike if it was a bit lighter in weight. Amazing traction, control. You can ride over anything.
