Merida Bikes eONE-FORTY 9000

It's fair to say Merida’s 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.

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…

Vitus E-Escarpe

Vitus' E-Sommet was one of the first E-MTBs that really shone for me, excelling in both performance and price amidst a world of ugly, ebikes that were poorly designed and executed. For 2020 Vitus expand their range of ebikes to include the E-Escarpe, which is based on their impressive 140mm 29er trail bike. Vitus' proven suspension design carries over to…
