Launched over three years ago, the Mondraker Dune XR is still streets ahead of its rivals in terms of sizing, our size L dwarfing most brands XXLs.

Hard not to love the Santa Cruz Nomad CC. It looks drop dead gorgeous, pedals better than most 140mm bikes but you have 170mm to get you out of trouble.

Voodoo has three full suspension bikes. The Munster at £850, the Voodoo Canzo at £1,000 and the Zobop at £1,250. All three use the same 140mm alloy frame.

polygon siskiu d5

Yes, the Polygon Siskiu D5 frame is top-notch but the parts spec is lacking. If it was £750 it'd be a steal but it's outclassed by other £1k full sussers.

How to do steep. As long as you can follow a few simple principles you’ll be at the bottom and thinking about the next section in no time.

Voodoo Wazoo brings two firsts to the sub £500 category: first bike to sport 2.8in Plus tyres and to benefit from the extra stiffness of a bolt-thru fork.
