Watch this rider hit the infamous Pemberton Railway gap in Whistler on the £2600 Patrol 691 enduro bike!
Earlier in the year we visited Bali and tested wallet-friendly enduro bikes from Indonesian brand Patrol. Since we left the sunny island, Patrol has been sending bikes around the world, and over some pretty gnarly looking gaps!
The Patrol 691 flying over the Pemberton Railway gap isn’t some hyper-expensive, Rampage ready freeride machine, but a 160mm travel 29er that costs less than £3000.
We actually test rode the Patrol 691, and while we didn’t jump any volcanoes or gap an airport, we did find that it handled bike park life very well.
Patrol Mountain is hoping to expand into the UK and Europe over the next year, and when converted from USD the 691 starts at just £2600, not at all bad for a 160mm travel enduro bike with 29in wheels, Fox Suspension and a 1 x 12 Shimano SLX drivetrain.
You can read our first impressions of the bike here, but we hope to get hold of one of these Indonesian flying machines for a full review in the coming months.
