The tenth edition of the Exposure Diablo Mk10, this year with 30% faster charging, which throws out a blistering 1500 lumens.

giro tyrant

The Giro Tyrant arrived unsolicited, in a brown box, with no delivery note, and no idea of the contents – it reminded me of the final scene from Se7en.

vitus nucleus

What can we say about the Vitus Nucleus 27 VR that’s not been said? As winner of this test four years in a row, its accolades say everything.

Shimano Deore M6000 disc brake keeps bumping up the standard of what a budget stopper can really be, premium performance with a great price.

five ten freerider pro

As the name suggests, the Five Ten Freerider Pro is a beefed-up version of the standard Freerider. These ‘Pro’ features adds to the price.

giant swage

The Giant Swage grips are kind of like Ergon’s G-series lock-on grips but cost almost half as much. I also prefer them over Ergons anyway.

voodoo bizango

Voodoo Bizango is the winning bike from 2018 and nothing has changed, not even the price, although it's supposed to be £670 but pricing seems pretty fluid.

rockshox reverb

This is the new RockShox Reverb dropper seatpost , in fact it’s so new we had it air-lifted to the MBR offices so it could make this test.

Maxxis Minion DHR II

Maxxis Minion DHR II WT arguably offers the most grip of all Maxxis models suitable for mixed conditions, and works fine year round.
