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.

vitus escarpe 29

Last year the Vitus Escarpe 29 VRX was our test-winning bike in the 29er category of this test, but it wasn’t perfect, which is why we only scored it 9/10.

forbidden druid

High pivot idler designs like the Forbidden Druid are nothing new - DH bikes have flirted with them - what is relatively new is seeing one on a trail bike.

£3,149.00
Scott Spark 940

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.

Whyte S-150C

The Whyte S-150C looks set to be the new benchmark 29er trail bike. It feels more solid than a YT Jeffsy and more capable a Specialized Stumpjumper.

best plus bikes 2019

The rugged Trek Full Stache 8 can pretty much go anywhere and roll over anything, making it the human-powered equivalent of a Land Rover.

£3,200.00

Yeti SB150

Ultimately, we have a lot of great bikes passing through the mbr office, but none this year have impressed us as much as the Yeti SB150.
