Ridiculously plush for an XC race bike
Outstanding descending control
Traction Control mode offers instantaneous climbing boost
Stealthy frame design hides shock from the elements
Adjustable geometry widens versatility
If you don't like suspension remotes, the Spark isn't for you
Headset cable routing adds maintenance frustration
Not the quietest bike

It's what's inside that counts
I mean, have you LOOKED at it?
Incredibly light for a trail bike
Impressively stiff chassis
Easier than you'd think to access rear shock

TwinLoc system creates a cluttered cockpit
Chainslap noise is loud in rougher terrain

Very low system weight and fast acceleration
Great integration and elegant look
Cool features such as the SRAM TireWiz and minitool integrated in the thru-axle
Long seat tube restricts the freedom of movement
Spec not suitable for harder trail riding
Puncture-prone XC tire on a trail bike doesn’t provide enough puncture protection
