Pivot Cycles Phoenix Carbon

A couple of summers back I was lucky enough to have a Pivot Phoenix as my trusty steed on a month long alpine road trip. It performed flawlessly and is, to this day, one of my favourite downhill rigs. When I was told a Phoenix Carbon was about to rock up at the office I was both excited and a…

Pivot Cycles Phoenix DH

Having ridden and rated the Pivot Firebird not that long ago it was a pleasant surprise to have the Phoenix arrive at the office. I had thought the Firebird was a purposeful looking machine but the Phoenix is a whole other order of burliness again. It has the bombproof looks that made it my first pick for a long road…

Trek Bikes Session 88

The Trek Session is the bike that won the Downhill World Cup last year with Aaron Gwin aboard. This year it has boosted Brook MacDonald into the top five and is doing the trick for Greg Williamson too. Needless to say when it arrived in the office we were keen to put it through its paces. We opted for the…

Scott decided to throw away the rulebook and create a bike that flies in the face of accepted traditions, will it fly on the trail though? Tech Heads Made from 6061 aluminium and sporting a raft…

Vitus Dominer DH

A race-ready DH bike for £2399.99/€2699.99? A few years ago that phrase would have been laughed at, but following in the recent tradition of well made bikes going for a song the Vitus Dominer is here to buck the old trends. What is perhaps most surprising is the spec that has been laid on, you’re not getting Fox or XTR,…

Giant Bicycles Glory 1

The Glory 1 is a truly stunning bike to look at with clean, simple lines and a very well thought out colour scheme. The frame is white with blue graphics and almost every component in a matching shade of blue. Gear cables, brake hoses, even the brakes themselves are all blue. RockShox have helped continue the theme with matching white…

Solid Bikes Mission 9

German company Solid are really causing a stir on the downhill scene and the mission 9 is becoming more and more popular. I’m sure the success of team rider Markus Pekoll over the latest World Cup season is bound to help the company grow even more. The Mission 9 is Solid’s flagship downhill bike and has been around for years…
