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,…

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…

CUBE Bikes Stereo 170 SL

Continuing from the well-received Stereo 150, Cubes latest addition to the Stereo range is the long travel Stereo 170. The Stereo range has never had such a long travel bike, but modern riders are now demanding more travel, bigger wheels and very little in the way of compromise. Cube has not strayed too far from the traditional Stereo design and…

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…

BOX Components Box 3 Prime 9 Drivetrain

Drivetrains have been turned up well past eleven now, and the race to put the most gears on a bike has probably subsided. Perhaps 12 is enough? Well, Box thinks 12 is more than enough and are encouraging us to think a little differently with a 'less is more' philosophy. The Box Prime 9 range aims to convince us the…

Julbo Eyewear Quickshift Goggles

The demands and expectations for mountain bike goggles have increased massively over the last decade. This, in part, is due to the rise of Enduro and challenges that racing of this format delivers. Goggles are now worn for longer, with higher levels of effort from the rider and in every type of weather condition. Julbo has long been at the…

Sector 9I Wheelset

New from the folks behind Kinesis UK and DMR in the UK are Sector wheels, offering a carbon rimmed wheelset called 9i aiming to be both light weight, but with a 'suit of armour'. Claiming to be tough enough for enduro but light enough for XC, the 9i wheelset has bold aspirations and a unique approach to creating the ultimate…

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…

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…
