It might seem a little strange to be calling a bike that sells for over four grand a bargain, but that’s exactly what we think this bike is. At the heart of it you’ve got one of the best suspension systems you’ll find on a bike, and then hanging from it you’ve got a list of kit that’d be more than at home on a World Cup race bike.

With it getting lighter too, it really is incredibly hard to find fault with this bike, especially when it costs so much less than equivalent bikes. Specialized have really got this bike sorted from top to bottom, and if you buy it you can be confident that you haven’t wasted a single penny.
