    My 13' Specialized Enduro is a crazy bike, it climbs great and goes down like it should... fast. That being said there are a lot of great bikes in that category right now.
    Whats this line for?

    Test ride all you can, then pick one that you like and fits your budget.

    Honestly, most of them.

    If you go to a bike shop, pick a bike in your price range with 140-170mm travel and it will probably fit the bill.

    Just go to your local shop or find a demo-day near you (assuming there is one) and get some test rides, there'll be something.

    I don't have one but this would be my preference, enduro comp too as it's more climb friendly than the enduro evo.

    If you're a new rider, and you likely are if you ask this question on an internet forum without any background info on your riding style or trails, then you likely don't need an all-mountain bike. Unless you're coming from a bmx or motocross background and plan on getting air often, start with a basic trail bike from your local bike shop.

    This. Usually the least expensive of them all, nice components, and pedals more efficiently than about anything else in its class. And it rips down the steep and chunky extremely well. I had one for over 3 years, and it was a fantastic bike in all aspects.
