    Well, no... it's not.
    Cube is horst link, Wizz is single pivot.
    Rock Machine showed (pre)production bike on Eurobike last year, Cube... not long time ago.
    The problem with Wizz may be steep HA, which is 66*. For pure FR it may be OK, but for DH... not really.

    Its all about the rider. To say a 66 degree headangle isn't good for dh is a joke. While it may not be what todays racers are riding it is going to work fine. I have a 2008 jedi thats 65.5 I guess I better get rid of it cause its no good at dh??

    .. not to mention angle adjust cups!

    I've browsed the web but can't find any info. Its a killer deal, and my friend is thinking about buying it.

    5.1 Kuna to the dollar.. so that actually makes it about 1735$ for the Whizz 70, which he plans to get and then change out the fork to a boxxer. As long as the frame is problem free, i'd recommend it to him, but without any reviews...

    and btw, the Whizz seems to be some kind of VPP design..

    Aside from the fork it looks like a really nice build spec...the shock, cranks, and brakes alone are almost worth the price. It looks like it has a tapered HT, so with an angleset and a Boxxer it might work out pretty well.

    The BB does look pretty high in the pic though.

    If the frame doesn't work, oh well. He can ride it till it dies then swap the parts to something better and still be ahead.

    Clockwork, I didn't say you would die just because of looking at 66* HA, but 66 is far far from 63/64 offered by more and more companies.
    BB is high, but there is no info about it. Putting Boxxer on it, would make BB even a tad higher.
    Too much hassle for me.
