Although its 140 travel, it doesn't feel like it.
I've been hammering mine round trail centres here in the uk with no issues at all with it.
Sadly I've just bought something new so the prophet is either destined for the wall or eBay now.
The 140 lefty max is also awesome :)

A bit annoying is that i went Stans tubeless and the crazy thin sidewals seem to have a fewl tiny holes. Tires dont hold air. Overnight the pressure is down.
