Which enduro bike of 2018 is the fastest? In order to answer this question, we held our own race in Finale Ligure with the ten most exciting enduro bikes around. This test reveals why Sam Hill and Jesse Melamed would probably be faster on other bikes and why, if you race to win, you shouldn’t use carbon wheels.
When it comes to aggressive trail riding, lightweight or removable chin guard full face helmets are more in demand than the latest iPhone X. We test six of the best to see if they can match the ventilation of a trail lid and the protection offered by a full face.
There has always been a natural order of things: white wine with fish, red wine with meat, and beer with everything. It’s the same with shocks: air for trail and coil for DH… but are times changing?
There is a handful of bikes the mere sight of which weakens the knees of real mountain bike connoisseurs, and the Ibis Mojo HD4 without a doubt is one of them. With the latest generation of the classic from California, the focus was on revising the geometry, and we were curious to find out whether or not the numbers added up.
Munich, for many, is reduced to Oktoberfest, Lederhosen and beer. But what’s the truth in this bad rep and is it time it got rehashed? We’re told the Isar trails are boring, the residents are snobby, and the city just isn’t as cool as Berlin! We’ve enlisted the help of Pro rider Rob Heran to refute these claims and find out exactly where to go.
As of right now, all the exciting articles can be downloaded from our interactive tablet or smartphone app, and they’ll make their way onto the website over the next few weeks. Have fun reading!
