santa cruz tallboy

The new Santa Cruz Tallboy blends big bike geometry with small bike travel: so is it a trail bike, an XC bike, or something else entirely?

giant trance 29

The Giant Trance 29 sits squarely between the Anthem 29 and the 27.5in Trance. Delivering a modest 115mm of travel, but this is a seriously capable bike.

Ghost SL AMR 6.7 AL

Coil-sprung suspension combines attitude and aptitude but is the Ghost SL AMR 6.7 AL's extra weight compensated for by better performance?

£2,800.00

The alloy Scott Spark 940 shares an almost identical frame design to the RC version but tweaks to the geometry and tubing really boost its trail confidence.
