I ride mostly trails with rocks, roots, ruts, loose mud, ups, downs, tight turns and this bike loves it. I have not encountered anything in my rides that this bike doesn't handle with ease. Bought it slightly used from a guy who bought it from Cycle World and absolutely love this bike. Excellent bike right out of the box.
I have owned the last 3 generations of the EX9, all 26" wheels, and thought that was the way it was meant to be. Trek proved me wrong when they released this bike. It just plain does things better than the 26" versions did, flow, traction, climbing, hammering. It's just better. If I could only afford the carbon.
