I'm sooo pleased that someone has done this review! I really wanted to go and see the new Satori yesterday at a local demo day, the first I've seen Kona at in Cornwall UK, unfortunately I couldn't go and was gutted.

I own a 2012 satori with 130mm rev dual air forks and id consider myself a beginner / intermediate rider but I have to say it's easily the best bike I've owned.

It's a very flattering bike to ride and I've absolutely smashed some local downhill enduro tracks on it, it gives you confidence and makes everyone think you are a better rider than you actually are! I think the head angle is just right, any more and it would be more enduro, this I can dabble in with the bike and not feel out of place whether at a bike park or a local trail.
