NSMB’s Cam McRae has already posted his first impressions of the Honzo ESD, now in his Best of 2020 list he has declared it one of his two favorite bikes of 2020 saying Riding a hardtail again was invigorating as hell, and using my new skills allowed me to keep pace with my buddies on their 170mm travel superbikes on some trails, and that made it even more fun.”  We cannot wat for Cam’s full review!

After three or four undulating corners and a few small launches, I was hooked. Of course it wasn’t as smooth or as easy as the duallies I’ve been riding lately, but other elements made up for those deficiencies. I was feeling much more of the trail and having to be as dynamic as Batman and Robin put together. My attention focussed with more immediacy on the surface of the trail to avoid square edges that would hang up the rear wheel and kill my momentum, and injure my back. The overwhelming sensation was amplified engagement. My surprise about being so captivated multiplied the experience and like the Grinch, my heart grew two sizes. I was hooked after the first 2-minute descent.
