Issue #019

#OpinionLeader isn’t just the theme of this issue; it’s also our core principle for 2016 and represents our magazine’s key direction: unique stories, visionary projects, objective and reality-based tests. This issue sees us put the current trend for plus bikes through the wringer, sussing out which sort of riders would benefit most. We also pit 12 of the most exciting pedals against each other and ask ourselves what true innovation really is. In the briefest period of 20 hours we undertake a proper Alpine adventure and work out how to re-fall in love with our home trails once more. Sound good? Then go and grab (or rather download) the latest issue of ENDURO – have fun reading!

Issue #018

Finally 18! With this issue we celebrate our coming of age, doing everything that everyone would like to do, but no one dares. Dream Bikes, dream cars and dream trips as well as a lot of bare skin. Check out the results of a bike tour in the region with the highest density of breweries in the world, and laugh as our two uk editors Trevor and Jim lose their virginity in two different ways: one on a roadbike, the other on an e-bike. And that’s not all by far – this issue has a lot more to offer and is just waiting to get ridden! Free and digital of course – as always! Enjoy the party!

Issue #017

This issue focusses on the most important ingredient of enduro: fun! Seeing all the pained and exhausted faces on finish lines, we had a nagging fear that the fun had gone from international racing, each round more gruelling and physical than the last, but the second stop of the EWS in Ireland shook the sport, we look at how the Emerald Isle changed everything . We also tested nine of the best Enduro bikes in a group test that, for the first time, settled some scores. We visited Jerome Clementz in his home, and took a factory tour of adidas eyewear in linz/austria. Our graphic designer Andreas took a trip to an isolated solitude while Trevor joined some good friends for a memorable trip to the Scottish Highlands. Issue #017 is bursting with adventure and is waiting to get ridden! Free and digital – as always! We hope you enjoy it!

Issue #016

For this issue (and for you guys!) we dived into some unknown territory, discovered new trails in unfamiliar countries and tested a lot of interesting bikes and products. One outstanding highlight is the trail bike group test: We tested eight of the most interesting trail bikes on challenging and demanding French trails. With over 200 hours of testing and slow-motion video analysis, the enduro fork group test wasn’t any easier! Read the magazine to find out, which fork excelled! What else? Our UK editor Trev reports from the EWS in Rotorua, Christoph explored fine trails in Austria and our long-term test team reveals some exciting findings too! Enjoy the read!

Issue #015

A new design, a new structure and new regulars – our international team worked hard to bring this issue to the next level! Some of the highlights: We tested eight new school xc bikes in California, the story “One to beat them all” answers how versatile an enduro bike really is and our brake test shows, which models you can trust (and which not!). We rode fatbikes in the Bavarian alps, experienced e-mountainbikes in the Sierra Nevada and visited the production of Magura. And that’s not all, find out by yourself! Enjoy the read!

Issue #014

This issue #014 is dedicated to everybody who brave the elements day-in and day-out, who want to transform night into day – before jumping ship to the balmy south when they’ve had enough of it. This is why we’ve tested and compared the most aggressive mud tyres in Scotland, the most efficient head torches in Bavaria, and the most secure bike bags for multiple trips. But that’s not all, we also present you with the interesting results of the Design & Innovation Award and our huge readers survey; and take you on a trip to the hometrails of Brett and Caleb in New Zealand. Our Editor Robin tells you about his heroic deed on the morning after new year and Christoph tested two interesting bikes for you! Enjoy the read!

Issue #013

Separation, it somehow always sounds like drama and suffering, however separation can also be something quite beautiful! Sometimes the time is simply ripe for something new, regardless of how sweet the past and shared experiences might have been. In this issue we separate ourselves from our long-term test bikes and look back at how they performed over a tough season. We also look forward, bringing you reviews of the latest, sexiest and most exciting bikes of 2015, bikes that mix new designs with potentially game changing innovations. We also check out all the latest weatherproof gear so you can keep shredding through the winter. It’s time for a mud party, bring it on!

We even designed our own frame for this issue. Our UK-editor Trev followed the footsteps of EWS-champion Jerome Clementz completing the EWS race in La Thuile with the full team support – find his exciting story in this issue! And what else?

Issue #009

It’s always the same! Every year, just around this time, everyone is moaning about the weather, the cold temperatures, and the short days: wintertime is just annoying! But hey – it’s changing, there is a vibe of enthusiasm in the air! So get out and ride! That’s exactly what we did! While some of us were shredding our home trails just for fun, others were training hard with the help of US-pro-trainer Dee Tidwell, who shares his knowledge in this issue. We were very busy with testing too, rating twelve knee protectors, not only on the trail but also in the lab! We also tested six of the best enduro forks and eight entry-level trail-bikes! With more stories than ever – enjoy reading all of it!

Issue #008

Dreams are almost as good as real life. They help to process the past, to anticipate the future or simply to give vents to one’s fantasies. We did all of the above for this issue! Tougher than Sylvester Stallone in Rocky we started our winter workout, we raged against the dying of the light, exploring the dark, lonely forests of Scotland and we put eight dropper posts to a group test. We tested two bikes aimed more at relaxing tours, the Cube Sting WLS 120 for the ladies and the Bergamont Threesome SL! Also, don’t miss our Design & Innovation Award special with the best and most innovative products for 2014! Have fun reading!

Issue #007

“A Happy End!” That’s how we could sum up the midsummer fairytale of the 2013 enduro season – given that the season had already ended! Without a doubt, winter is not exactly what a mountain biker desires, but still: it’s a great time! Great to overcome the weaker self and great to look back at all the great adventures of the summer. That’s exactly what we did for this issue: We went for many rides with new bikes and old Klunkers, we retrospectively had a look on the first year of the Enduro World Series and gave a final resume on our long-term test bikes. Biking is exciting – all year round!
Have fun reading!

“The future is closer than you might think” – this was the title of our first editorial. Now, one year later, we are able to tell you why: new World Series, new wheel dimensions, new teams, new magazine, new format, new Design & Innovation Award – a lot can happen in a year! And this year an awful lot has happened. Enduro hit the scene with full force. Within a year enduro gave a new face and esthetic to the sport of mountain biking. The sense of community – “we are mountain bikers” – is back once again and lifts up the sport to a different social level. In a nutshell: Enduro is super!
