The 2016 World Cup season has now come to a close, so it’s the perfect time to take a look at the downhill mountain bikes of the pros and see which rigs have been the most successful this year.
Of course, these will all be familiar rides by now to anyone who has been following the series, but do you know all the bikes that claimed a top 10 finish in the men’s or were piloted to success by top women? Here’s the list…
Aaron Gwin: The YT Tues CF
Aaron Gwin’s move to YT was one of the big talking points of the off-season, and Gwin didn’t let the German brand down, riding their rig to the 2016 overall win.
The price tag on the YT Tues is more than reasonable and the bike is now proven on the big stage. Aaron rides a stock size large Tues CF frame. He races with Fox Racing Shox suspension and runs a 40 Air fork and Float X2 rear shock with some custom-tuning.
