Tested: Industry Nine A318 Stem

Bike Mag - Thu, 22/08/2019 - 16:45

This isn’t quite a product test. Even though I’ve been riding the A318 stem for the past month. It’s a just a stem. It keeps my bars on my fork and, in turn, keeps my teeth in my head. Sure, it’s light weight and, of course, it feels nice in the hand. But most high-precision Read More

Liv Introduces the Pique 29

Bike Mag - Wed, 21/08/2019 - 04:16

While other brands are absorbing their women’s-specific bikes into their main lineup, Liv continues to double-down not only with ladies spec and colors, but unique frame geometry as well. That once included an exclusive focus on 27.5-inch wheels, a not illogical way to accommodate smaller body sizes. But philosophies are changing, so Liv is introducing Read More

Bike Mag - Tue, 20/08/2019 - 17:02

The new Santa Cruz Tallboy seems to suffer from almost none of the pedal feedback that has plagued VPPs of past. Yet, it still has impressive pedaling efficiency.

First Ride: Juliana Joplin

Bike Mag - Tue, 20/08/2019 - 17:01

The Juliana Joplin is a short-travel bike that’s anything but short on soul. For 2020, in keeping with its burlier siblings, the Joplin gets a lower-link mounted shock. It also gains some travel, graduating from 110 millimeters of rear wheel travel and 120 up front, to 120 millimeters out back and a 130-millimeter-travel fork. Despite Read More

“We’re not here for Crankworx.”

Bike Mag - Tue, 20/08/2019 - 03:04

It’s easy for us to think that we own Whistler in the summer, especially during Crankworx. It’s our ultimate playground, and who would come to a playground if not to slide down the slide all day? Well, it turns out a lot of people do. Mixed in with the countless mud-spattered riders are families, businessfolk Read More

iXS releases Trigger Lightweight Full-Face Helmet

Bike Mag - Sat, 17/08/2019 - 03:13

There’s a bit of an arms race going on to win the light-weight full-face helmet market. For a time, it was being driven by removable chinbar options that have a fit and styling somewhere between trail and DH. Most are low profile and fit close to the face. Less obstruction, less jiggle, less weight. But Read More

First Ride: 2020 Trek Fuel EX 9.8 X01

Bike Mag - Fri, 16/08/2019 - 00:10

This is not what it looks like. Even though this new Fuel EX has a Fox 36, it doesn’t mean it has shed its trail-bike past for an enduro-bike future. Even though the for-racing-only Top Fuel just got a combined sum of 35 millimeters extra front and rear travel, that bike is not taking the Read More

First Impressions: 2020 Rocky Mountain Slayer 29

Bike Mag - Tue, 13/08/2019 - 18:08

The new Rocky Mountain Slayer is not fucking around. It makes the previous Slayer—which is no slouch on the descents—seem like an XC bike in comparison. First off, Rocky now makes the Slayer with 29-inch hoops (but don’t worry small wheel lovers, there’s a 27.5er Slayer too). Secondly, it’s got a ton of travel. 170-millimeters Read More

Though the Wringer: Editor’s Gear Picks From a Massive Week in the Mountains

Bike Mag - Mon, 12/08/2019 - 17:09

Trans-Provence was the original alpine mountain bike enduro-style event, and quickly built a reputation for being an incredible adventure that was grueling on both body and bike. Simply finishing each of the six days was no easy feat, and required a combination of fitness (physical and mental) and high-performing, dependable equipment. You may have noticed Read More

POC Introduces Tectal Race SPIN NFC Smart Helmet

Bike Mag - Sat, 10/08/2019 - 09:17

The Tectal Race SPIN NFC helmet may not technically qualify as a “smart device.” It can’t read your email or remotely turn on your toaster oven. What it can do is convey detailed medical information to first-responders. NFC, or near-field communication is a technology that uses magnetic field induction to send data from a non-powered Read More
