Let's get one thing out of the way--single speeds aren't for everyone. No matter how many eggs you chug for breakfast or how many ...bears you leg wrestle, grinding up steep and endless climbs without the security of a granny gear isn't something that'll make everyone feel like a legend. If that sort of pain and suffering sounds like your jam, though, the Niner ONE RDO Carbon Mountain Bike Frame is your steed. Descended from the AIR 9 RDO, the ONE RDO is a light, stiff, and scorchingly fast blend of climb-happy XC bike and race-ready hardtail. Like all Niner frames, it was developed using the company's computer-based finite element analysis, which is a fancy way of saying that the ONE's carbon layup is designed to be extra awesome. The carbon weaves, the varying tube shapes, and the frame's form are all designed to be super light and extra stiff while directing forces to the strongest parts of the bike to prevent damage. The fat CYA bottom bracket and fat 12mm thru-axle direct pedaling forces into the back wheel without flexing, and the slightly curved seat stays help reduce the vibration caused by hard riding on rough and rugged trails. Unlike the AIR 9, the ONE uses Niner's oversized CYA bottom bracket interface, which fits the included BioCentric eccentric bottom bracket. It's durable, creak free, and easy to use, and if you feel like turning the ONE into a one-by, you can add the necessary hardware and run any drivetrain you desire. You should also note that the ONE will only work with a 160mm brake rotor, and the rear triangle will fit tires up to 2. 35in in diameter. Read More

At the heart of Ibis' Tranny 29 Special Blend Complete Mountain Bike is a feature called the Slot Machine, which governs chainstay... length, adjusting it by up to 15mm. The Slot Machine lets you customize the bike's rear triangle for whatever set up you want to run. Short, nimble chain stays for a properly tensioned single speed chain; longer stays to accommodate a front derailleur -- the Tranny is always one step away from fulfilling your dreams. Both triangles are made from monocoque carbon, so whether you run it with the Shimano double drivetrain it's spec'd with or make the leap to a singlespeed setup, the Tranny takes advantage of its 29er pedigree by embracing speed without wasting watts due to high weight or low stiffness. The bottom bracket rides low for stability taking berms at speed and the thin seatstays and oversized chainstays stress comfortable compliance and stiff efficiency, respectively. The bike's Deore build is supplemented with a Race Face Respond crankset, and Stan's NoTubes' ZTR Arch Rapid wheels keep it rolling steady and tube-free. The Ibis cockpit components are dependable additions that keep the price reasonable without feeling like a downgrade, and the build is finished with a 100mm X-Fusion Slide RL fork. Read More

The fact that the Jet 9 Complete Mountain Bike Frame isn't the top of Niner's line actually carries a distinct benefit: you don't ...have to pay the pole-position tax levied against carbon wonder frames, but you still enjoy Niner's race-ready efficiency and unrivaled 29er suspension platform. Some racers need a full plastic bike to feel fast, while others just need actual speed. The Jet 9 Carbon is for the latter. Just because it's an alloy frame, doesn't mean the Jet 9 is an outdated curiosity from racing's past. On the contrary, Niner is still investing in aluminum technology, and the new Jet 9 benefits directly. Niner replaced hydroforming with airforming, a process that involves super-heated aluminum blasted into form with compressed air. This nets greater control over tube thicknesses and allows Niner to use almost a pound less material without sacrificing any stiffness or durability. The Jet 9's rear triangle is also updated for 2015, spearing your rear wheel with a robust 12x142 millimeter thru axle. The new axle is the new standard, adding stiffness and rigidity for more precise rear wheel tracking over nasty terrain compared to its predecessor's 10x135 setup. Another side benefit of less back-end flex is a longer life for the complicated series of pivots used in the CVA suspension system, a surprisingly capable design that you'll want to last as long as possible. While the industry-wide love of 29ers has sent some manufacturers into R&D purgatory in order to find a solution to full suspension/29er compatibility issues, Niner has been sitting pretty for some time with its 100mm of CVA travel. The CVA suspension's lower link sits below the bottom bracket, which puts the bike's virtual instant center ahead of the drivetrain and effectively isolates the drivetrain from the rear triangle. When you press on the pedals, nothing's lost to compressing the suspension, and you won't suffer kickback from chainstay growth when taking advantage of the 29er's abili... Read More

Striking what may be the absolutely perfect balance of light weight and colossal huckability, the Ibis Mojo HD3 Carbon continues a... long history of industry-leading masterpieces from one of mountain biking's most respected and innovative manufacturers. With a big-travel carbon fiber frame weighing a mere 5. 9 pounds, a super efficient suspension platform, 41mm-wide carbon fiber rims, and SRAM's X01 1x11 drivetrain, there's nothing to upgrade -- just throw a leg over and drop in.The HD3 picks up where it the Mojo HD 650B left off (although those are still crushing trails around the world as we type this). Recognizing the clear advantages that resulted from stuffing 27. 5-inch wheels into their Mojo HD frame, engineers went back to the drawing board, knowing that serious potential lurked in the ingredients if they could dial it all in properly. Insanity-inducing testing of every possible construction, suspension, and geometry configuration all resulted in the piece you see here, a 6-inch travel carbon fiber beast that does to your expectations of such bikes what the internal combustion engine did to the horse.The DW-link suspension platform completely isolates rear wheel movement from pedaling and braking forces, creating a plush and linear suspension motion that feels like an even bigger bike, yet pedals on flats and climbs like a cross-country machine. The 67-degree angle of the tapered head tube serves in this function as well, being a touch less slack than many bikes in this category. Why? The suspension's supremacy and the chassis' stability are so solid that Ibis knew it could give you a sharper front end for climbing and handling without sacrificing the HD3's descending ability, so that's exactly what it did.Zooming in closer reveals as much attention to the details as was given to the HD3's overall mission, as well.

Niner's Air 9 RDO 4-Star X01/RS-1 Complete Mountain Bike won't transform you overnight from a baggy shorts noodler into a Lycra-cl...ad rocket; however, if you've already built an explosive fitness level, then the Air 9 RDO's Carbon Compaction System (CCS) layup and X01 one-by drivetrain form an appropriate catalyst to propel you into the XC firmament. The frame's rocket ship status is a result of Niner's Race Day Optimized (RDO) construction ethos, which removes any impediments to speed. This begins with the CCS construction method mentioned above, Niner's proprietary method of compacting carbon to eliminate any extra material, resin pooling, and imperfections for a virtually perfect frame that's a claimed 100 grams lighter than the previous Air 9. The obsessive reworking of the frame is even evident in such details as the low-profile disc brake mount and the omission of the usual, heavy CYA bottom bracket in favor of a PF30 model. Despite these changes, though, the Air 9 RDO's race-proven geometry and tube shapes, designed to dampen chatter and distribute impact forces to the stronger parts of the frame, remain largely unaltered. Chain torque goes directly to the rear wheel via the same large bottom bracket shell and shapely chainstays of previous models, but with the added stiffness of a 12x142mm rear axle. The bike's spine connects the tapered head tube to the oversized bottom bracket via a large down tube to ensure the frame tracks true and responds to every input. In order to keep your mind off of ancillary concerns and focused on the race, Niner specs this model of the Air 9 RDO with their 4-Star build. A quick glance at the spec sheet suggests that the these are the SRAM X01 drivetrain, the RockShox RS-1 Solo Air fork, Stan's NoTubes ZTR rims mated to SRAM's XO hubs, and Shimano's indefatigable XT M785 brakes.

If the Ripley Cane Creek DB Mountain Bike Frame is any indication of Ibis' stance on what most of the industry seems to accept are... the limitations of 29ers, the California-based manufacturer doesn't believe that big-wheel bikes are for cross-country, only. Believe it or not, Ibis has packed five inches of DW-Link travel into a 29er platform that, due in no small part to its DW-Link suspension, still enjoys speed comparable to a hardtail. The Ripley begins life as an internal bladder that dictates the frame's inner shape. This form is wrapped in a single-piece carbon layup, allowing Ibis to extend unbroken threads into, around, and through joints for a stronger build that actually requires less material. The precision available to this method also eliminates the need for additional mold structures and filler material, resulting in the optimal weight and stiffness. The clevis and swingarm uprights are further reinforced with foam glass microsphere cores, which add stiffness and durability without adding a glut of grams. The frame is built around a DW-Link suspension design that incorporates a Cane Creek DB shock to provide what you've come to know, love, and expect from any machine bearing Dave Weagle's initials: small bump compliance, predictable travel, and no harsh bottoms on square hits. The suspension really shines when you're taking advantage of 29er speed by throwing power into the trail, exhibiting solid anti-squat characteristics for a snappy response whether you're sprinting uphill or accelerating out of a switchback. The main bearings are largely protected inside the seat tube, but the hardware itself actually has a higher load rating than its counterpart in the venerable Mojo HD, so you can rest assured that the bearings will last. Their lifespan also gets a boost from a reinforced front upright between the stays and a swingarm-mounted derailleur, both of which allow for a stiffer system that produces less torsional and lateral load on the bearings a...

When 27. 5-inch wheels hit the market like a ton of bricks, the folks at Ibis were able to respond relatively quickly, due to the ...ability to fit a 27. 5in tire inside the existing Mojo HD frame. This wasn't an ideal solution, though, so once it was clear that the new wheel size was here to stay, they went back to the CAD machines and created an all-new Mojo designed specifically for 27. 5-inch rubber. The Mojo's always utilized the famed DW-link for suspension. This design completely isolates pedaling and braking forces from the suspension kinematics and makes the Mojo feel like a perfectly adequate cross-country machine, until the trail gets a little more vertical and the Mojo shows what it's really about -- rallying downhill. The Mojo's 67-degree head angle and 6 inches of travel is a little on the short and steep side compared to other bikes in this category, but the DW-link's such a solid system that Ibis decided to back the head angle arms race off a bit to create a bike that was a little fasterhandling. They've matched the slightly steeper head angle with a slightly lower-than-average bottom bracket for better stability, and shorter-than-average chainstays to maintain the quickness that comes with most Ibis frames.

When we throw one of our two legs over the top tube of a 29er with five inches of travel, we expect the big wheels' superior angle... of attack to clear obstacles with the speed and stability of an eight-legged acrobat. Intense Cycles' Spider 29C Mountain Bike Frame is therefore appropriately named, as the combination of all-mountain travel and big-wheel speed make it a trail predator that stays on point regardless of the gradient or terrain. Both of the Spider's frame triangles are monocoque carbon, which allows the engineers to wrap the carbon through the joints. While you'll appreciate the increased structural integrity of this construction method, the process's primary benefit is that Intense can use less material, which lowers the overall frame weight. Long travel or not, 29ers are primarily about speed and lower weight means more propulsion, and the Spider's tapered head tube, thru axles, short links, and second generation Virtual Pivot Point (VPP) suspension take full advantage of those weight savings. The VPP platform itself employs two aluminum counter-rotating links to balance smooth travel with a consistently solid pedaling platform. The upper link provides most of the rotation as the bike compresses into the sag point, yielding a vertical wheel path that you'll notice in the form of a firm feel during acceleration. As the bike compresses deeper into the suspension, the lower link activates, moving the axle path rearward. The rearward axle path lets the rear wheel yield gracefully to impacts, so the ride is smooth, not jarring, and pedaling efficiency isn't compromised by the frame's 130mm of travel, and the Cane Creek Inline shock's Climb Switch adjusts low-speed compression and rebound in order to keep your tires glued to the trail for maximum traction while climbing. The Spider shares more than just a name with eight-legged predators. Its 68. 5-degree head tube hits the mark between slacked-out, enduro bomber and nimble XC dart, bringing the two di... Read More

With a carbon frame weighing a mere 2,676g, six inches of world-beating DW-Link suspension, Ibis' huge 41mm-wide carbon rims, and ...SRAM's nigh-indestructible X01 drivetrain, the Ibis Mojo HD3 X01 1x Complete Bike continues forging ahead in the direction established by Ibis' previous 27. 5 enduro beast, the HD 650. Combined with the long, low, and slack geometry, the build kit reads like a how-to manual for enduro riding. The HD3's 27. 5in wheels enjoy all the handling benefits of 26ers and a big, 29er-esque angle of attack. The HD3 also rocks the venerable DW-Link suspension platform, which completely isolates rear wheel movement from pedaling and braking forces, creating a plush and linear suspension motion that feels like an even bigger bike on descents yet pedals on flats and climbs like a trail machine. This build's 160mm of front travel means its tapered head tube is slackened from the standard 67 degrees to a beastly 66. 6, which pushes the bike more toward the demonic downhill side of enduro racing without totaling sacrificing its angelic climbing and XC platform. The 16. 9-inch chainstays and 13. 4-inch bottom bracket are also studies in paradoxical balance that net uncommon agility for a bike in this category. Power transfer and travel both sit where we like them -- high -- without compromising tracking or clearance, so you won't lose the advantages you gain climbing by being hamstrung or pedal-struck on gnarly descents and rocky corners. The threaded bottom bracket mercifully dismisses any proprietary press-fit systems in favor of a rock-solid, dirt-simple, creak-free standard that will last for ages. Dual-row angular contact bearings on the drive side of the linkage require zero preload adjustment and dramatically reduce play compared to standard sealed bearings, further bolstering the bike's lateral solidity whether you're climbing or dropping-in. Since it runs on a rock-solid one-by drivetrain featuring SRAM X01 and Race Face's Turbine crank, you'll... Read More

For 2015, Intense's Tracer 275 C Foundation Complete Mountain Bike returns with a longer wheelbase, a slacker head tube, and a cla...im to be among the top enduro frames in the global circuit. The geometry changes compel aggression when the road points down, the double Shimano drivetrain means the Tracer 275 C Foundation has the gears to clean steep grades, and the mid-sized wheels strike a balance between the pure speed of 29ers and the nimble dexterity of 26-inch wheels. The frame at the Tracer foundation's heart comprises two monocoque carbon triangles, which allows the engineers to wrap the carbon through each triangle's joints. While this construction method produces noticeably increased structural integrity and stiffness, the primary benefit is that Intense can use less material, which lowers the overall frame weight. After all, you'll be carrying every gram of this uphill during events, and each watt wasted on the climb is less juice you're bringing to the fun part of enduro. The Tracer's tapered head tube, thru axles, short links, and second generation Virtual Pivot Point (VPP) suspension take full advantage of those weight savings. The VPP platform itself employs two aluminum counter-rotating links to balance smooth travel with a consistently solid pedaling platform.

The bike is built with a full Shimano drivetrain that may fall short of the weight savings of XTR or the bling of Di2 but doesn't disappoin... Read More

The Santa Cruz Bicycles 5010 Mountain Bike Frame is an ideal bike for those of us who like a good, long pedal, but who also enjoy ...a ripping descent. While the number of five-inch, XC-leaning-but-trail-capable bikes in the market number far more than a couple peoples' fingers and toes, the 5010 remains at the top, ready for both raceday, or just Saturday. It all starts with the 5010's VPP suspension. While many companies talk about virtual pivot points, only Santa Cruz has been constantly developing the VPP design since its acquisition of the patents in the '90s. That kind of experience with a suspension design is rare, and rarer still is a company able to modernize its designs at will. In the 5010, Santa Cruz has designed a bike that pedals well, won't dive under braking force, and is more capable on more trails than you'd expect a five-inch bike to be. Santa Cruz smartly specs this R-level 5010 with a RockShox Sektor fork, Shimano's SLX component group, and Race Face cockpit components. The idea is to deliver a bike that's as trail-capable as you expect a Santa Cruz to be, while still leaving you some gas money to get to the trailhead. Read More

Niner
$1,999.00 at Backcountry

If you glance at the specs, you'll notice that the 2015 Niner Air 9 RDO Mountain Bike Frame is roughly 100 grams lighter than the ...previous version. This was accomplished using Niner's Carbon Compaction System (CCS). This process allows the Niner engineers to create tubing that is near perfect in shape and wall thickness, without wasted carbon or resin build-up. Without the cushiness of a rear shock, Niner went to town to design a frame that not only dampens vibration and minimizes chatter, but also moves impact forces to the larger and stronger areas of the frame so you can take a hit from rougher trails. The bottom bracket is designed for a PF30 and your pedal power is transferred to the rear drivetrain via the same chainstays as the previous version. The difference is that Niner has added a 12x142 Maxle to the rear dropouts. The oversized downtube keeps the bike holding tight to the line you choose, and its clearance allows for tires up to 2. 4in wide. Read More

At this point, the impact of 29ers on the cycling industry is pretty damn hard to overstate, and while the latest attempt to split... the difference between wagon wheels and 26in bikes has been gaining ground, there's still no substitute for the 29er die-hard in need of a fix. Santa Cruz's Highball Carbon CC XT Complete Mountain Bike is the cure for what ails you: a hardtail for efficient sprinting and climbing, Santa Cruz's untouchable Carbon CC construction, and a double crankset for top speed whether the trails going up or the finish line is coming up. Though this is a 2015 model, the only difference between it and the 2016 Highball Carbon CC frame is the paint. The carbon layup is the same single piece instead of a jigsaw puzzle of individually-cured carbon tubes, so the fibers are wrapped through and around structurally important junctures like the head tube and bottom bracket. This strengthens the frame, dissipates the force from impacts and pedaling load, and allows for the same strength and stiffness as the more pedestrian Carbon C frame while using less material to shave a couple hundred unwanted grams. The Carbon CC construction means this bike hits the bricks when you stomp on the pedals, dampens high-speed chatter, and holds lines like a cat on carpet -- all with a low-weight that makes virtually any other 29er -- full suspension or hardtail -- feel like an unresponsive iron anchor. The Highball somewhat addresses the lack of rear suspension with a diminished seatpost, slimmed down to 27. 2 millimeters. While this doesn't quite equate to the square-edge hit capabilities of the Nomad or Bronson, it does help to eat up chatter that will otherwise accumulate over the course of a long ride. Up front, the 29-inch model has a sharper head tube angle than the Highball 27. 5 so it dances nimbly through switchbacks and technical sections. Although it has longer chainstays than the 27. 5 version, The Highball 29er actually has a shorter wheelbase, courtesy of that .. Read More

When we first heard tale of Yeti's latest co-ed project, the Beti line, we were a bit skeptical given that this is an industry sti...ll hungover from what felt like a decade-long glut of subpar women-specific models starting in the late-90s. It turns out that that the Beti bikes are almost the exact same as the corresponding non-Beti models, so the Beti ASRc X01 Complete Mountain Bike retains all the flexibility of the ASRc with the addition of some changes that amount to tweaking the cockpit setup. The Beti ASRc goes straight to the status of a race-bred XC bike that climbs like it has an engine and handles descents and trail furniture like a bike with one more inch of travel. While the present trend of enduro machines means all-mountain bikes and gravity riding tend to enjoy the bulk of industry attention, we're even more impressed by low-travel bikes like the Beti ASRc that transcend the boundaries between XC, trail, and enduro bikes. The ASRc's head tube angle is slacker than a typical four-inch bike. Combined with its relatively low bottom bracket, this makes for a geometry that lays the machine out for line sticking control across terrain. The Beti ASRc's geometry and surprisingly capable suspension encourage a rider to push it as hard after dropping-in as the frame's low weight does while climbing. As with virtually all bikes at this level, the Beti ASRc's low frame weight begins with carbon. The Beti version features the exact same construction as the ASR Carbon, which manifests as an extremely stiff chassis with a claimed weight as low as 4. 2lb/1,900g. Yeti's choice of a single pivot suspension also contributes to weight loss, and the oversized pivot pins add yet another boost to stiffness. The rate-modifying link that guides Yeti's iconic loopstays teams up with FOX's 2016 DPS Factory shock, which -- in a key departure from the standard ASRc -- is tuned for lighter riders on the Beti. Sizes x-small and small continue this theme of accommodating smaller r... Read More

There are six things separating the Beti SB5c X01 Complete Mountain Bike from Yeti's standard SB5c models: a modified cockpit, a d...ifferent paint job (coral, not pink), and the four letters B, E, T, and I. Other than that, the Beti SB5c features the same frame as the Yeti equivalent, making it the shark in a women-specific-sea of pink-and-shrink frames with also-ran build kits. The Beti SB5c's predatory status manifests in its true all-mountain geometry, Switch Infinity suspension design, and X01 drivetrain, while the cockpit's revised touchpoints repackage that one-quiver capability as a setup more friendly to smaller riders. In the interest of moving on to that predatory stuff, let's get those cockpit changes out in the open now: the saddle, grips, handlebar, and 170mm crank arms are all smaller/shorter/re-shaped to accommodate women, who -- according to Yeti -- benefit from these redesigns. Other than that, the Beti hits the same enduro/trail sweet spot as its non-Beti counterpart, centering on a blend of two of Yeti's suspension designs in order to create a platform that climbs well (courtesy of its Switch Link heritage) without sacrificing the ability to take big hits (which it owes to its 303 pedigree). The result is the Switch Infinity. The original Switch Link has been written to death in publications across the industry, so we'll keep this brief by touching on the differences between Link and Infinity. When you get past 30% in the stroke while really pushing the Link's limits, the eccentric creates a momentary harshness under rapidly successive big hits. The Infinity replaces the Link's sinuous travel arc with a linear plane of motion, so it changes direction without getting caught in the minute dead spot that produces that harshness. Of course, 95% of all riders won't ever push the Switch Link hard enough to experience this dead spot, but with the Beti SB5c, Yeti went ahead and fixed it for the serious lady racers, anyway. An easily accessible grease po... Read More

When 27. 5-inch wheels hit the market like a ton of bricks, the folks at Ibis were able to respond relatively quickly, due to the ...ability to fit a 27. 5in tire inside the existing Mojo HD frame. This wasn't an ideal solution, though, so once it was clear that the new wheel size was here to stay, they went back to the CAD machines and created an all-new Mojo designed specifically for 27. 5-inch rubber. The Mojo's always utilized the famed DW-link for suspension. This design completely isolates pedaling and braking forces from the suspension kinematics and makes the Mojo feel like a perfectly adequate cross-country machine, until the trail gets a little more vertical and the Mojo shows what it's really about -- rallying downhill. The Mojo's 67-degree head angle and 6 inches of travel is a little on the short and steep side compared to other bikes in this category, but the DW-link's such a solid system that Ibis decided to back the head angle arms race off a bit to create a bike that was a little fasterhandling. They've matched the slightly steeper head angle with a slightly lower-than-average bottom bracket for better stability, and shorter-than-average chainstays to maintain the quickness that comes with most Ibis frames.

With a lineage almost as old as Santa Cruz itself, the Superlight R Complete Mountain Bike is one of the longest running XC platfo...rms still on the market today. Of course, this Superlight isn't the same as its distant ancestor, the Tazmon (we know you remember lusting after it), as it's benefited from years of constant fiddling by the Santa Cruz engineers. Given its simple single-pivot suspension and unassuming alloy frame, the Superlight remains surprisingly relevant -- even for racing. While the Superlight's single-pivot suspension design is nothing new, the company has taken the platform and refined it to perfection over the years, resulting in a durable, reliable frame. Evidence of this in found in the pivot's location. It's placed slightly above and forward of the middle chainring, to offer the best balance of pedaling efficiency and bump compliance. The frame's hydroformed alloy tubes are shaped into an asymmetric rear triangle, buttressing-up the drive side while keeping material to a minimum in areas that aren't key to power transfer. This focus on efficiency is a must considering the Superlight's 27. 5in (sizes small and medium) and 29er (sizes large and x-large) wheel. While the larger wheels offer a more aggressive, terrain-gobbling angle of attack, they do require a stiffness chassis to take full advantage of them. The combination ensures suspension motion is directed to the rear shock, which would otherwise cause the frame to flex or shutter around switchbacks or across rock gardens. The single-pivot suspension also gets a boost from FOX Racing Shox's FLOAT CTD Evolution rear shock, which has three distinct damping settings to quickly and easily adjust to suit the terrain on a given day's menu. If you're going to sprint up a fire road, for example, the Climb setting will essentially lock out the rear shock -- but remain compliant over water bars or sharp edge bumps. The Trail setting provides a more active motion to assist with traction when travers... Read More

The Pivot Mach 4 is not only designed for smaller riders, but it is also ideal for riders who need more space to move while they r...ide. The 5. 1lb frame is Pivot's lightest, yet it doesn't compromise stiffness. It sticks a track just as well as Pivot's XC bikes with the plush ride of a full suspension. The rear suspension is provided by the DW-link design with 115mm of travel. The link system is designed to provide enough travel for the gnarliest of trails while ensuring that all of your pedal power propels you forward. It is paired with the FOX FLOAT CTD Kashima shock, which is tuned to use every bit of movement available, so even with the 115mm of travel, your ride will feel bigger. To complete the frame, internal cable routing is part of the design. The geometry has been tweaked to work with either a 100mm or 120mm fork. And while the shorter travel means more speed, the 120mm will give you a ride with a bit more slack. Read More

There are few, if any, machines that come as close to achieving all-mountain perfection as Santa Cruz's Nomad Carbon CC 27. 5 XX1 ...Complete Mountain Bike. Though this particular model is a 2015, the changes between it and the 2016 version are mostly cosmetic and, since many of us at Competitive actually prefer the slightly simpler paint jobs of the 2015 models, the price drop compared to 2016 means we can have our full carbon, Virtual Pivot Point (VPP), 6. 5in enduro cake and eat it, too. Beneath the updated frosting, the current top-end Nomad frame is built with the same Carbon CC construction methods used here. For the CC build, the engineers use a higher modulus fiber than in the Carbon C model, so less material is required to hit the same strength and stiffness numbers. Less material equates to less weight, and, well, you can see where we're going with this. Climbing and pure speed both benefit when there's less mass for your engine to propel. As with the current models, last year's Nomad's two carbon triangles are built as whole pieces rather than glued together from disparate bits. This saves weight and increases structural integrity by allowing Santa Cruz to wrap carbon continuously through and around key junctures, reinforcing the frame with less material while eliminating the artificial stress points that result from bonded construction methods. The frame is finished with compaction from inside and out for a more even finish that avoids any structural defects, excess material build-up, and resin pooling for -- you guessed it -- even more weight savings. The 2015 Nomad's VPP suspension platform is also the same as the 2016. The list of improvements that Santa Cruz teased out of the venerable suspension design for 2015 includes improved mid-stroke support and off-the-top small bump compliance. VPP still maintains the snappy pedaling that's essential for piloting a long-travel bike to the top of your favorite runs, though, and it still features the core ele... Read More

While we're certainly fans of many of Santa Cruz's full-suspension, single-discipline bikes like the all-mountain Heckler and the ...XC Superlight, investing too much in a bike limited to one specific role can be a bit, well, limiting -- especially when there are options like the hardtail Chameleon D Complete Mountain Bike. The Chameleon obviously doesn't hit gnarly descents like an eight-inch DH monster, but with its huge range of fork compatibility and interchangeable rear dropouts, its colors bleed between sharp-angled XC climber, slacked out trail killer, and singlespeed session machine to provide a bit of variance across multiple disciplines and styles of riding. The Chameleon's most radical element of mutability is definitely the pair of rear dropouts, which can be swapped for a singlespeed setup, making for one hell of a gritty lizard that's guaranteed to net gnar points on any 100-mile endurance race or while sessioning park terrain. In the advent of an XC race or just a day on singletrack, the dropouts are shipped in ten-speed mode, keeping the Shimano double drivetrain in full working order. The Chameleon's front end is also flexible, including the ability to fade from shades of short-travel XC to the distinctive hue of a six-inch enduro fork. The D build comes spec'd with a 130mm RockShox Sektor Gold RL Solo Air, which splits the difference between the frame's min/max spread of 100mm to 150mm for a neutral tone on the off-road travel color chart. As alluded to above, changing forks also alters the bike's geometry. With a 100mm fork, the seat angle gets steeper and the bottom bracket height drops for a forward-leaning, aggressive XC geometry that puts power above all else while virtually banishing wheel flop. As travel approaches 150mm, the bike gets taller and the head tube slacks out for stability at speed that holds lines like, well, like a chameleon clinging to a stick with its little tail coiled up. Only not as cute. Without a solid platform, all t... Read More

We contend that this is unfair, as many of us appreciate the multifaceted refinement of a bike like Ellsworth's Evolve Carbon Mountain Bike Frameset. The Evolve is not only handles terrain with confidence, but it also climbs well and has the cross-country speed pedigree of 29-inch wheels. It doesn't skimp on good looks, either, with Ellsworth claiming that it's a piece of "performance art." We agree, and we've found that the best way to appreciate this particular piece is covered in mud while enjoying a cold beer after a maniacal run through a rock garden. The Evolve Carbon is built with Ellsworth's Force Vector Anisotropic Design, which translates into unidirectional Toray carbon fiber laid-up in varying shapes and wall thicknesses in order to strike a balance between weight and energy transfer while keeping the suspension system's pivot points aligned. In the rear triangle, the addition of CNC machined aluminum rockers and chainstays makes for an even stiffer drivetrain, and the single 12 millimeter bolt needed for each pivot assemble makes for a lighter, less complicated system. Fewer parts mean fewer issues, and you can ride confidently knowing that the part that is there happens to be the size of your rear axle. The semi-integrated tapered head tube takes advantage of the steep head tube angle for a stiff front end that elevates 29er steering to levels you'd expect from smaller wheels. Ellsworth claims that the Evolve Carbon's Instant Center Tracking (ICT) suspension is the most advanced suspension platform in the world. As it moves through travel, ICT keeps the instant center (or virtual pivot created by ICT's four bar suspension) as close to the chain force line as possible.

Though it doesn't have the trendy 67- or 65-degree head tube angle of bikes like the Bronson and Nomad, the 5010's steeper geometry is backed up by a lower bottom bracket height, which nets gains in stability while railing berms, more confident braking, and a sharper kick while climbing or sprinting. In the right hands, the 5010 plays the nimble David to the Bronson's and Nomad's Goliath, dancing circles around its lumbering stablemates. Though it's tighter than on slack enduro sleds, the 5010's 68-degree head tube keeps tracking stable enough for all-mountain dust-ups, and the stubby chainstays and oversized 12x142mm rear axle stiffen the back end for more efficiency when the gradient rises. The mid-sized, 27. 5in wheels continue the 5010's giant-slaying theme, benefiting from the high angle of attack of big wheels while still maintaining the responsive acceleration and flop-free steering of 26ers. This best-of-all-worlds versatility is further boosted with a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post, so the 5010 can modify its ride to all manner of terrain variations. The 5010's Virtual Pivot Point (VPP) suspension platform is largely responsible for its adaptability because of the two counter-rotating links that govern its travel. The upper link provides most of the rotation as the bike compresses into the sag point for a vertical wheel path that manifests as a firm platform for acceleration and eager small-bump compliance. As the bike compresses deeper, the lower link activates, moving the axle path rearward to lengthen the wheelbase and increase stability.

Pivot may be turning a page with the new Mach 4 Carbon Complete Mountain Bike, but it's clearly still reading from the same book. ...Some of these changes are as drastic as a move from 26 to 27. 5 wheels, which strike a neat balance between nimble 26ers and steamrolling 29ers. This complements the larger-than-it-seems 115mm of travel, which combines with the fast geometry and DW-Link suspension for a ride that's both speed-hungry and seemingly bottomless on big hits. Despite changes like that, the Mach 4 still abides by the playbook of Pivot founder Chris Cocalis. Ride quality always comes first. This ethos is reflected in the Mach 4's frame material, which sees Pivot move from aluminum to carbon. The new, all carbon Mach 4 enjoys gains in all the good areas: torsional strength, weight loss, and stiffness. To maximize those gains, Pivot uses varying moduli of carbon fibers depending on considerations of frame geometry and impact on ride quality. These materials are laid-up according to the Arizona-based company's hollow core internal molding technology, which grants the manufacturers precise control over the pressure used to compact every square inch of the frame. The universally loved DW-link suspension is one feature that we're happy to see return. It's a design that convincingly illustrates our earlier claim that efficient pedaling and bump compliance are not mutually exclusive courtesy of its anti-squat characteristics. When you're on your bike, the center of mass is somewhere near your belly button. Every time you accelerate, this mass shifts rearward, loading the rear suspension. The DW-link counteracts your shifting mass to minimize bio-impact on the rear suspension. All of which is a tidy bit of marketing copy that translates to the trail like so: The ride is firm and responsive while you're hammering, but it glides over rocks, roots, and ruts. You can tune the bike's suspension as you see fit, too, with the Kashima-coated FLOAT CTD shock that FOX made in... Read More

While the Mach 6 has myriad benefits over other manufacturers' rush-to-production 27. 5-inch all mountain bikes, we'll only take the time to focus on a few defining elements of its geometry. First, its bottom bracket height is low, settling the center of gravity within the rolling stock (like 29ers) and not on top (like 26ers and rush-job 27. 5s). Second, the top tube is around an inch longer and the chainstays are around a half-inch shorter than comparable machines, so you'll enjoy all the benefits in stability and handling of the larger frame/short stem/wide bar trend in enduro bikes without the usual penalty of a longer wheelbase. The key to this win/win/win situation is Pivot's use of a new clevis to connect the rear shock to the rear triangle. This keeps the suspension linkage compact to avoid seat tube interference, so your stays stay stubby. It also eliminates the failure-prone rear shock bushing, and you'll be happy to know that it's not proprietary, so you're free to choose whichever shock you want. Conversely, you could just stick with the custom-tuned FLOAT X CTD, which guarantees that the Mach 6's two carbon triangles will play nicely together for fuss-free handling out of the box. Whatever you decide, your chosen shock will be incorporated into the Mach 6's DW-Link suspension design. Again, in the interest of time, we'll simplify the DW-Link to note that it balances travel with chain tension for a consistent, stable pedaling platform that's anti-squat, climbs like a goat, and descends with authority. The Mach 6 is l... Read More

29ers are typically about one thing: speed. Given this myopic focus on all things forward-moving, we often ignore the aesthetics o...f our big-wheeled machines, but with Ellsworth's Evolve Carbon XT Complete Mountain Bike, this is impossible. On first glance, you might assume that the California-based manufacturer put as much time into designing the Evolve's paint job as it did engineering the frame and suspension; however, a quick look at Ellsworth's tech sheet disabuses you of that misconception. The Evolve is, in fact, built for 29-inches of durable, aggressive speed and sharp handling -- the good looks are just a welcome extra. The Evolve Carbon is built with Ellsworth's Force Vector Anisotropic Design, which translates into unidirectional carbon fiber laid-up in varying shapes and wall thicknesses in order to strike a balance between weight and energy transfer while keeping the suspension system's pivot points aligned. In the rear triangle, the addition of CNC-machined aluminum rockers and chainstays makes for an even stiffer drivetrain, and the single 12mm bolt needed for each pivot assembly makes for a lighter, less complicated system. The semi-integrated, tapered head tube takes advantage of the steep head tube angle for a stiff front end that elevates 29er steering to levels you'd expect from smaller wheels. Ellsworth claims that the Evolve Carbon's Instant Center Tracking (ICT) suspension is the most advanced suspension platform in the world. As it moves through travel, ICT keeps the instant center (or virtual pivot created by ICT's four bar suspension) as close to the chain force line as possible. In on-trail terms, this maintains a steady pedaling platform so your power is always transferring into forward motion instead of lost to those two suspension gremlins, forward Jack and vertical Bob. Furthermore, ICT doesn't require a lock-out, so the suspension is always fully active, even while climbing. The addition of chain torque doesn't constrain the sys... Read More
