Like taking to the autobahn in a specced out Benz, the UNW8 is all about dispensing with the concept of speed limits entirely. Top-shelf construction techniques, powerful flex and aggressive geometries enable ballistic assaults across the full spectrum of mountain terrain, and once you’ve gone all in, Antiphase 3.0 ensures turns flow smoother than a Bond one-liner.
