Hey guys, I used to be on here all day every day years back when I rode/raced DH here in BC. I stopped riding around 2013 when I had to put my time/money towards being an "adult". Now I'm looking to purchase an enduro bike to get myself back into the game!

I live in Vancouver so I'll be mainly riding North Shore with occasional Squamish and Whistler days.

I have a budget of around $3000, and am looking for a a pedal friendly bike that can handle getting a little aggressive (the last bike I owned was a 2009 Glory DH, just for perspective).

The Giant reign 2 looks to be a good fit that is in my budget. So does the YT Capra, but I don't really want to wait until June to receive the bike.

I recently came across a deal on a 2016 Enduro Elite that is basically brand new for under 3000.

Could anyone lend some feedback as to which would be a better performer for the above described riding? It's mainly between the Reign 2 and the 2016 Enduro.

Reign 2 is more toward DH, but not very bad for climbing.
I had Reign SX, Reign 2, Reign Advanced - all great.
If weight is not your problem then go with Reign.
