First Look Friday is an introduction to the products that we are currently testing for review. This week we’re featuring the BH Lynx 4.8, SRAM’s Roam 40 wheels and the Factory Lite gloves from Oakley.
The Lynx 4.8 sits firmly in the cross country trail bike category, with 120mm travel, short stays and a 68 degree head angle. A bike that will let you compete in a long distance endurance event on Saturday and on Sunday head out to enjoy some tricky trails. Going on the reputation of the Split Pivot suspension layout, there’s no reason the Lynx shouldn’t pedal as well as it descends. That’s the idea anyway, we’re eager to see just how well the BH performs as a cross country all rounder.
The carbon 9.5 model comes kitted with suspension from RockShox, the Reba and Monarch doing duty in the front and rear respectively. A mix of GX and other SRAM components make up the 1x drivetrain while Magura MT4 brakes are tasked with stopping your momentum. To add to the trail flavour, a KS Supernatural dropper post comes standard. The wheelset is BH’s own Super Lite wrapped in Michelin rubber.
