MBR

Alan Muldoon

An XC-focussed hardtail with good looks, great brakes and an impressively low weight

Pros
  1. Light and fast. Superb brakes
Cons
  1. Skinny tyres

BikeRadar

Alex Evans

Perfectly adequate for blue-graded trails, but its geometry limits its potential to help you progress

Pros
  1. Fast-rolling tyres with plenty of grip for trail centres
  2. solid performance for beginner riders
Cons
  1. Fork let down by sticky action
  2. geometry limits bike’s upgrade potential
  3. 2x drivetrain is dated compared to the competition

Bikerumor

Pros

  2. 1x12 drivetrain
  3. Impressively grippy tyres
Cons
  1. Expensive
