Last used to be one of the boutique brands of choice here at Dirt. The Herb was a nailed on fixture to the 100 at the turn of the decade. Its sorted geometry put other bikes to shame on our test tracks and it could take a 150mm rear hub long before Pivot's branding team got involved.

Now Last is releasing a brand new trail bike - the Clay. Much like its predecessors, Last's latest steed looks like a wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am playful descender. With low standover, a bordering-on-ridiculous 65.2° head angle and 429mm chainstays, there's no mistaking what this bike is intended for.

Despite its burliness, Last have again found a way to keep the needle on the scales grounded with the bikes weighing as little as a claimed 12.5kgs.

The geometry is optimised around a 150mm fork and, very strictly, for 27.5 inch wheels, Last went to great pains to tell us that there were: "no wagon wheel and no plus tyres" allowed.

It's also built around a metric shock - we think this is the first metric Cane Creek shock fitted as standard on a trail bike.

With four builds and four sizes available there's plenty here to suit any rider. For more information, click here.
