The Zaskar is a great bike for a killer price. If you are looking for something that won't break the bank, but do everything a 27.5 xc bike needs to do, then this is it. Fantastic beginner bike for hard tail riding.
The slacked top tube, makes this bike easy to play with, and the 27.5 wheel size, plus hard tail geometry, make it a great climber.
I have had a lot of fun on this bike and ridden it on almost every type of trail.
Only draw back; tire slide out on sand and slick rock.
I am 5'5 and ride a size small.
