Three bikes that take the short travel full suspension bike to another world.
Words Chipps Photography James Vincent
It’s a mixed-up, muddled-up, shook-up mountain bike world these days. We have long travel 29ers winning enduro races, 27.5in trail bikes that are slacker than downhill bikes from a mere few years ago. Even how and where riders are riding is changing. Road bikes are going off road, enduro racers are riding to the tops of mountains… and have you seen the state of cross-country World Cup racing these days? Those tracks are gnarly!
