Rocky Mountain Bicycles Altitude Carbon 70

The last few years has been a good journey for Rocky Mountain Bikes, and with the Altitude undergoing a progressive facelift their ‘aggressive trail’ bike has been well received around the globe. With the Slayer filling the big, hard-hitting enduro category, the Altitude is free to concentrate on being a long travel trail bike, or shorter travel enduro machine. It…

SRAM MTB NX Eagle Drivetrain

It feels like only yesterday that the Eagle first landed amidst cries of derision that nobody needed 12 gears and that 50t cassettes were ridiculous. At the time the price was pretty ridiculous too, perhaps similar to the latest release of AXS, but over a pretty short period of time, the Eagle has landed at progressively lower price points. The…

Polygon Bikes Siskiu N9

Relatively unseen in Europe, Polygon have flown under the radar somewhat but are beginning to show us what we’ve all been missing over here, with some bold designs and some exceedingly well-priced bikes that have begun to get the market’s attention. Being the owners of their own factories means that Polygon is able to build bikes at a range of…

Leatt is currently on a roll at the moment having released a fantastic line-up of apparel, along with the brilliant DBX 3.0 Enduro helmet. New to their product range are these – the newly released Leatt Velocity 6.5 goggles which I have been fortunate enough to have been testing for the last couple of months. So, where to start? Well,…

CUBE Bikes Hyde Race

A bit of an odd bike for an MTB magazine you might say, but bear with us, and of course the N+1 rule always applies. When Rou broke his leg and ankle, last year biking was off the cards, however as soon as he felt he could ride a bike again the urge was to stick to the roads, rather…

Marin Bikes Alpine Trail 7

We all know that Marin is back in the game with some great bikes, and are certainly not afraid to try new things. They've pushed hard into the lower end of the price spectrum while simultaneously releasing the Wolf Ridge, their head-turning, top-end trail bike. Their bikes are coming fast from all angles. Building on the success of the Rift…

The XDURO AllMtn 3.0 fills the slot between Trail and Enduro bike in the rich and varied menu of Haibike’s offering. Packing 150mm of rear travel,…

Pivot Cycles Firebird 29

Earlier this year, Pivot filled one of the last gaps in their range with the arrival of a long travel 29er. Previously, the Switchblade had been their most progressive big wheeler, but this still had trail bike tendencies and was an excellent ride in those scenarios but not in bigger terrain. Their biggest hitting non-DH bike was the Firebird, which…
