Nope, I believe it just came out VERY recently. I saw it the other day and already want one, lol. Specs wise its well worth the $379.

Should I buy the extended warranty from Walmart? 35 dollars for additional 2 years of coverage and 44 dollars to add 3 years.

I am speculating that this 26 inch version might share a lot of common components.

Not as much as you'd think. I think the drivetrain is the same, but really nothing else. Completely different frame and suspension design. Different wheels and tires, and pretty much everything else.

I went to a Super Walmart locally and I saw the 29 inch Deception. It's actually pretty good, but without the rear suspension. Maybe the wheels and Tires are the same on the XR-PRO and the Deception?

On the website looks like it has double wall wheels.
