Coming up with a list of the 100 best products in mountain biking year on year is a tough business and a selective process that takes days, weeks, and even months of deliberation and debate. Eventually our team whittles the bikes, products, and kit down to a finalised list and within that we sub-categorise things. In terms of bikes we’ve already given you a roundup of our top-rated downhill bikes and enduro bikes of 2014, and now we move swiftly on to the best trail mountain bikes – in our opinion and in no particular order. Six bikes, two wheel sizes. 26” isn’t dead, but in the case of trail riding we feel these are simply the best bikes you can buy right now.
Have a scroll through and then maybe let us know what would you include on your dream list if you had the chance by leaving a comment below.
