Montu is certainly a work of craftsmanship when it comes to B&M Inverts. However, it is also quite a schizophrenic ride. You never know which Montu youre going to be riding.
For example, our early-afternoon rides on Montu were at best 7 - 8s due to the trims kicking in with such brutality. It really dumbed down the otherwise intense batwing inversion and the post-MCBR portion just dragged.
On the other end of the spectrum, my girlfriend and I decided to tackle Montu for a few more cycles at the end of the day. Luckily, these last three rides were virtually trim-free, which I understand to be relatively rare these days. There was a slight squeeze of the brakes flying into the batwing, but they were quite minimal and the inversions pulled some serious gs. The MCBR decided to be generous as well on these last few cycles, and the second vertical loop was very intense, as was the final wingover element.
Overall, Montu is a fantastic invert and currently my favorite of the nine that Ive ridden. The key, however is to catch it on a good day, as several of the reviews have said already. I feel extremely fortunate to have snagged three rides on this Egyptian beast in its prime.
