You dont have to be a experienced rider to get the most out of it as a 14 year old i no went from a kona scrap to his ironhorse and he rips.

They seem to pedal sweet and feel nice to ride.

The point isn't that it bottoms out on big drops.
It's that the BB is very low, and the suspension isn't overly progressive, meaning it reaches full travel quickly, which it turn can mean it bottoms the guide out on obstacles that wouldn't normally catch out other bikes.

They are reknowned for their cornering ability, but also for some weird pedal kickback action... The early frames had pivot issues - and from memory, the first generation bikes where all warrantied.

That landing was a sand pit, and you could not carry/ride through it unless carrying alot of speed.
