It’s perhaps a bold statement, but we reckon that the Session has the best geometry of any downhill bike, and as we all know geometry can count for an awful lot. It’s also one of the lightest too, so those two elements combined make it a potent race bike to say the least. Sadly there’s one change that has happened since the Session was introduced that we don’t like so much, and that’s the change in price. It used to easily take the ‘best value’ title, but now it’s almost starting to look expensive compared with others. Despite that though, and the fact that this entry version could really do with a BoXXer Team rather than Race, we still think it deserves its place in this list, after all, it remains a great bike.
