Kona Bikes Remote 160

Kona has built upon the foundations of the Process 153 and created what is effectively an e-MTB version of the popular enduro bike. At first glance, it is easy to see where the comparisons come from with the progressive geometry and slack head angles that the Process is well known for, being evident in the design. There are some slight…

Ravemen Lights PR1600

Perhaps not the most familiar name in mountain bike lights, Ravemen produce a range of lighting for road and off-road use. With 1600 lumens, it not going to blow the competition away on pure power, but a competitive price, innovative tech and a sleek package all combine to make the Ravemen 1600 worth a closer look. The packaging may look…

Merida Bikes eONE-FORTY 9000

It's fair to say Merida‚Äôs eONE-SIXTY was a massive success for the brand when it was launched. E-bikes were still finding their way in the world and the bike managed to provide riders with a brilliant ride that rode like a normal bike. Fast-forward to the present day and Merida has introduced both a new eONE-SIXTY and an eONE-FORTY. Based…

Kinesis Rise E-Trail

UK brand Kinesis may not be the first brand that springs to mind when you think of electric bikes, but the British brand has launched its e-division with a genuinely unique electric mountain bike. Up until this bike I firmly believed that all hardtail ebikes were rubbish, I've probably even written it somewhere, so I'll cut to the chase and…

RockShox SID Ultimate

Synonymous with XC racing, the SID has been getting riders on podiums for as long as I can remember and this latest version is certainly continuing the tradition. For 2020 models RockShox has introduced the new Ultimate versions of its forks. These represent the highest level of technology in the range in each of the chassis available i.e. Pike, Lyric,…

Ravemen Lights TR300

Night riding feels like an arms race to put as much firepower on the front of your bike as possible. Lumens now number in the thousands and lights can burn the retinas from any unsuspecting nocturnal animals on the trail. What is sometimes forgotten is something pointing the other way, especially if you intend on using roads to get to,…

Merida Bikes Big Trail 600

Striking, that is the word that came to mind on first sight of the Merida Big trail 600. A gorgeous forest green set off with bright red forks and decals. The 2021 model is an equally alluring purple affair that also catches the eye. This is the top of the range Big Trail, with 2 lower models for 2021. Beyond…

Dropper posts have been extending rapidly with a race to see who can offer the most drop. 125mm used to be the norm when they first hit the scene, but with short seat tubes on modern frames, anything up to and beyond 200mm is now available. Vecnum has one of the longest drops on the market with their Nivo offering…

Kona Bikes Process 134 DL 29

There are very few bikes I wish I had bought, but the Process 111 from about 4 years ago has to be one of them. A bike way ahead of its time, it combined short travel with big bike numbers to create a unique and amazing ride. The 111 was forgotten about and Kona continued with the long travel Process…
