Dusty Wygle and Ethen Roberts. We corralled these two action sports athletes during Crankworx Whistler, set them up on a couple of brand new Reign SX bikes and let them loose, not to do a world’s first anything, but to simply enjoy the act of riding.

 Must be awkward riding same color bikes.

 Why would it be awkward? If you're on a team or are a factory rider then I think it's kinda cool repping the colours.

 yeah, you'd be like "is that me, or am I me?" idk what you would even do

 They are full stock, doesn't take much to swap bars, saddle ect and get your own setup going.

 I have the 2017 reign sx, love is all i got for that bike. Giant hit it out of the park. Do yourself a favour and go buy it.

 They are good. Ridden a few 26 and 650B. I prefer a Slash by Trek or a Nomad by Santa for a 160/170 DH set up. The Session is a rad MF for a double crown monster.

 @jaycubzz: Are you new here buddy?

 @usa-dh-racing Had an old 26" Glory and it was amazing despite not being that slack. Ive got the 2015 Reign 1 and I CANNOT se myself getting rid of her any time soon. Its slack (65 HA), long and with a few bottomless bands in the shock now, it just feels amazing. running it fully stock apart from my old carbon bars off my old Trance.. but other than that! Took it to the Alps on two occasions now, and very rarely did I feel that I need anything more. For shuttling your local DH, sessioning the bike park and going for a ride (Pedals amazingly, even fully open), I cannot rate them highly enough! Plus they are good value vs. equipment!.
Also for value, Check out the 2018 GT Sanction. Wicked build kit for £3500 and 170mm!!

 Giant has very good value for the spec you get on any of their bikes. All modern (last 3 years or so) DH bikes are good, its the rider that makes the difference. Getting a DH bike with suspension set up for 'you' is most important. And I'm pretty sure Giant has lifetime warranty on their frames for the original buyer, can't beat that. Transition, Kona, Specialized, Giant, Trek. all make a great DH bike. I've had my Glory for the last 3 seasons and its been great, its not the limiting factor, its me.
