Hottest Gear for 2015: from bargain full suspension bikes to upside down forks, there’s a stack of tasty looking gear on your way soon. We chart the trends of tomorrow, today.

Danny MacAskill: we go behind the scenes at McMadSkills’ latest video shoot on the Isle of Skye, as he attempts to ride the Inaccesible Pinnacle. Be warned, this is not for the faint hearted — there are knife edge ridges, rock drops and chasm gaps that are terrifying to watch.

Britain’s Best Singletrack: in search of the best singletrack in the UK, we head to the Trough of Bowland in Lancashire — part Peak District, part Lakes, and wholly great.
