Welcome to our Editor’s Choice 2019; home of the best bikes and products on the market.

Spending your hard earned cash on something new for your bike can be a daunting prospect. The mountain bike market is awash with products, all claiming to be the hottest thing since the last product that was the hottest thing. Sure, you can check out the online peer reviews before you click buy, but these can be misleading as they either say the product is amazing, or rubbish – there are rarely any shades of grey. And then there’s the very real possibility that the review is written by a bot, harnessed to bump up the overall ratings.

One thing you can rely on to be thorough, trustworthy and unbiased are our reviews. We have a team of experienced and highly regarded testers with a comprehensive overview of the market – if it’s worth considering, chances are we’ve ridden it. Hence our 10/10 rating is the most coveted seal of approval in the industry. A kite mark for quality that ensures you are spending your money wisely. All of the bikes and products awarded this perfect 10 rating are showcased here.
