The Redshift EX chassis does several things very well. First, the bike is incredibly easy to balance. For example, when riding on a tight, technical trail at very slow speed, it's easy to keep your feet up and continue motoring along. The bike also has great straight-line stability and is predictable at higher speeds. Most of the time, straight-line stability and cornering ability are trade-offs, but such is not the case with the Alta. We especially noticed this when riding the bike on the vet track at Cahuilla. The bike dives into corners very easily, making sudden line changes nearly effortless. While the bike is great at lean in, it also stays planted and remains predictable throughout the entirety of the corner as well. While the Alta chassis feels light and nimble on the ground, some test riders noted that it feels a bit heavier once airborne, but acknowledged that it wasn't major and the way it handled on the ground far outweighed how it felt to them in the air.
