Default Considering a 21 Matryx Assault

Considering ordering one of these. Coming off 2 backcountry 850's and a 20.5 XRS renegade 850.

The matryx has caught my attention it looks like some really good refinements and close to doo build quality.

I went and saw it today. Was less then impressed. Build quality wasn't what i consider great. Colors are very limited. Lots of plastic that looks cheesy. Gauge was cool.... but thats about it.

If he thought his IQR had nice fit and finish in comparison then the Matryx is screwed. I did love my IQR so don't get me wrong.

Jamie I know you've tried an Assualt before and the chassis is basically the same except for the upgrade in shocks. When I looked at them I liked the improvement in the wind protection and liked the narrow seat and tank. One item I didn't like is the 1" lower seat. I'm 6'1" and preferred the old height of the seat but it's not that big of a deal and I'm sure I'll get use to it.

Doug, I am also 6’1 and love the seating position of the axys. Seems perfect for my build. With that being said, 1 inch isn’t that much but it looks like from the show room pics they are using a taller riser? Any input on that or just looks taller because of the seat height?

I always put a 1" taller riser on and with the seat being lower the bars on the Matryx felt at the right height.

Thanks Doug, I liked the seat height on the previous Axys but it looks like the Matryx addresses a lot of the things I didn't like on the previous Assault.
