Last bikes have added two new bikes to their range that use the same frame to offer options for trail and enduro riding.
Knolly's Warden LT makes short work of rough terrain, but it's not just a big softie. It also has a supportive side that encourages you to earn your turns.
When it was launched, the Trek Slash was outrageous. Now, as bike travel has increased, the Trek Slash 8 looks a little undergunned. Can it still mix with the big guns?
Looking a million dollars, the Propain Tyee CF is a bargain. With a low-slung frame and very progressive suspension, it loves collecting air miles. But can its performance live up to the looks?
The Privateer 161 has 161 mm rear travel, a low-slung Horst link suspension system, 29” wheels and very on-trend geometry. Will it be the champion of simplicity and no-frills performance?
The Nukeproof Mega is officially the fastest Enduro bike in the world but can the Nukeproof Mega 290 Expert take pole position at this tough price point?
The Merida ONE-SIXTY 700 is Merida’s bargain-basement 170-165 mm big hitter. However, its performance doesn’t live up to its intent.
Our group test proves that the Ibis Ripmo AF takes the roughest trails in its stride but can this trail bike keep up with enduro bikes when the going gets tough?
With an amazing build spec and refined ancestry, can the 29” wheeled, 170/146 mm travel Giant Reign SX deliver big fun on the trail, or is its reign over?
With 180/175 mm travel, the Canyon Torque knocks loudly on the door of downhill bikes but the geometry and single crown fork speak otherwise.
The latest YT Capra COMP 29 model is an absolute hooligan with 170/160 mm of travel and 29” wheels. A downhill bike that can be pedalled back to the top?
Just how much do you have to spend to get an affordable enduro bike that is ready to go, out of the box, with no extra costs?
I chose the 29-inch version and requested some geometry changes thanks to the Rider Tuned Geometry personalization program offered by MDE.
Travis Engel's Scott Ransom is still his one and only, marking the first time we've picked the same bike for a Dream Build two years in a row.
As far as the bike itself goes, I love the do-it-all but still have fun spirit the Sentinel has.
The Norco Sight put head to head with the Norco Optic.
Six Commencal owners talk you through their rad rides and what makes them special.
Take a closer look at Cecile Ravanel's race-ready Meta AM.
Norco’s Sight lands squarely between the Optic and Range, putting it technically in the “All Mountain” category and making it the most bread and butter mountain bike in the Canadian brand’s lineup.
Testing in the Time of COVID, Dave finds alternate uses for Orbea's 160mm Rallon, before finally getting it back on the dirt.
