PinkBike Blackjack Review Vernon Felton

PINKBIKE BLACKJACK REVIEW-By Vernon Felton Photography By Colin Meagher

“…. On the Blackjack, you’re suddenly able to snake through corners that always feel too tight on other bikes.”

“At speed. While cackling. It’s a very good thing. When I outfitted the bike with Industry Nine’s BackCountry 450 27.5 wheelset and Maxxis Rekon 2.8s, the bike retained all of its nimble and playful feel, but now also offered ridiculous amounts of traction and a velvety feel in root and baby head sections. Which is the better option? Again, that’s entirely dependent on the rider. I have a bias towards the steering feel of the 29-inch wheel, but also enjoyed cleaning some tech sections with the 27.5+ tires that normally frustrate me.”
