Pivot Announces Mach 429 Trail

06.23.2015

Pivot's new Mach 429 Trail was inspired by the capability–and limitations–of the Arizona company's cross country race bike, the Mach 429SL. The 429SL is still very much a race bike, but there's no doubt that it begins to cross the aisle from leg-shavers to seat-droppers. It was this fun factor that the 492 Trail was born from.

First Look: Yeti Beti SB5C and ASRC

06.22.2015

Female influences have been a constant throughout Yeti Cycles' heritage–over the years it's sponsored some of the fastest women in the sport, the likes of Juli Furtado, Marla Streb, Tara Llanes, Jill Kintner and Rosara Joseph–but until now it hasn't marketed a bike specifically for that demographic.

Ibis' new Mojo HD3 was one of the favorites among our testers in this year's Bible, but the model we tested was on the pricey side. This one sells for about half as much, and rolls on the same carbon chassis.

Ghost Riot 9 LC | Dual Tester

05.19.2015

Only a few names like BMC and Lapierre have crossed the pond in recent years, and they rarely grab much of a foothold here. But 22-year-old German brand, Ghost, is getting a bit of a leg up from REI.

Specialized Rhyme targets lady shredders

05.15.2015

The women’s version of the Stumpy sports a carbon frame with alloy rear triangle, a different paint job and saddle, shorter cranks, narrower handlebars and a lighter tuned rear suspension, but the geometry is identical to the 650b men’s bike.

Preview: Giant Trance Advanced 27.5 2

05.14.2015

There are carbon frames that cost nearly as much as this bike--Giant's least expensive carbon Trance model. So what's the catch? Are the parts crap? Here are some first thoughts after a few months aboard the Trance Advanced 27.5 2.

Preview: Niner RIP 9 Carbon 2-Star SLX

Here are some impressions on the slightly (and smartly) up-spec'd "2 Star" version of Niner's all-purpose machine.

First Impressions: Specialized Rumor 650b

04.18.2015

Specialized has tweaked its popular Rumor women's-specific trail bike to give it a few modern touches like snappier geometry, more travel and 27.5-inch wheels. The changes reflect Specialized's evolving philosophy to offer multiple wheel sizes on its popular mountain bikes, whereas the company was previously firmly planted in the 29er camp.

2016 Jamis Dragonslayer 27.5+

04.18.2015

What better way to get back to our mountain biking roots than with a steel hardtail? With trail geometry and the added grip and confidence that plus-size tires bring to the table, we imagine the Dragonslayer will be a full-on grin machine.
