Top 5 – XC Mountain Bikes 2018
Top 5 – XC Mountain Bikes 2018
Long thought of as the purveyance of skinny folk who like wearing lycra, cross country bikes are becoming more versatile and dare we say it, more fun, whilst retaining all of that lung searing speed.
Here are 5 fresh bikes we think are well worth a look in 2018.
Where is Trek-Top fuel
Am I the only one who loves hardtail. Just got the hardtail epic.
I dont think that both Specialized must be in this list.Its only name nothing more.
What about the Fuji( SLM 2.1) i did the research and purchased one its amazing!!
I have a 2018 talon 2 sport XC and that works just fine, also there is better XC hard tails that are better
Hi! I have no idea if anybody can answer my question or help me with some guidance. I am about to buy my first bike, and I’m looking for a good entry level bike. So far, I have seen three bikes that im interested on. Those are: 1) Giant Talon 2 29er (I’m on the fence with the fork. Is Suntour a good fork) need help here. 2) Trek Marlin 7 (on the fence with the crankset. Chainrings are not removable) and 3) Specialized Rockhopper Comp (I’m not really sure about the fork again. I like that is air) Out of those three which one do you think is the best option for an entry level MTB? Thank you so much!!!
SPECIALIZED Rockhopper Sport 29er 2018 vs CUBE aim pro 2018? Which one is better they are the same price in my city and i can’t decide which one to buy…
When i see hardtail im getting sick. My head starts to hurt
Where is Trek-Top fuel?
lol, still drive my 27 year old Koga-miyata sky-carbolite (magura fork/xtr/tubeless) atb… I know, there are no hills in The Netherlands 🙁 But this bike did pass the 300.000 km last year 🙂
I am looking to upgrade my mtb next month and the two I’ve narrowed down to is the GT Avalanche Sport 27.5 Hardtail 2018, and the Carrera Kraken 27.5 Hardtail 2018. All brand bias aside, what is the best value for money? Both have hydraulic breaks, which I’m after. I’m deffo no expert, so I just want to have some light shed on which is the best bike for the money overall.
BMC Team Elite TE01
Samsung galaksy j3
Cannondale carbon team ????
I am 13 y.o. hoping to get 1 of this bikes…
But i have 150$ mtb bike is that good or bad ?
No love for GT Zaskar?
spark and spesh hardtail ok, the epics brain suspension clunks which annoyed me on a weekend test, the other 2 in best of 2018 list, dumb!! for some reason the trek procaliber is never included in these lists, ive never ridden a more capable hardtail, the isospeed gives it just the right amount of absorbtion when seated and it handles very rough terrain with ease, its fast and fun to ride!!
Any XC HT mtb are still the best ever bike to ride!!! No doubt!!!
Hard tail or shit
tried all bikes now and i like cube the best amazing frames
Give me that epic hardtail 🙂
1 and 5 are rubbish
And I still use my good old KTM Race Cross 26" from 2007! 😂 🤙🏻
Hard tail all the way!
No Polygon ya?
Хвз старт шоссе ?
This could of been a way shorter vid but a more accurate one. The Scott Scale & Spark are the only ones. Nino proves it.
1) Spec EPIC FSR
2) Nicoli SATURN 11
3) Felt EDICT
4) Scott SPARK
5) Spec EPIC HT
Specialized is kinda weird with the way they design bikes, they flip flop with there designs often going back to older styles.The epic HT reminds me of the mid-late 90’s "round" frames while early 90’s are like 2000’s with the tapered bottom tube & direct drive rear triangle.
I like this epic but i do like the tapered frames.
I can’t manege this price,,how much for used one?
XC or DH?
Crazy how big, fat and heavy the bikes have gotten over the years. A 26 or 27.5 Epic hardtail as light as possible would be nice.
Specialized epic hardtail is ok but the epic full suspensión???? No way!! . There are better bikes like, Giant Anthem, canyon exceed, trek Procaliber 9, and more. There are bikes with better geometry and better configurations and price like Canyon!
Specialized Epic actually became much worst this generation. In 2009 they killed a fast hardtail version and added almost 1 lb more weight and less stiffness to the frame. Not sure what they were thinking but they really ruined a super bike.
I like this bike,, how much for used bike.?
In video epic is labeled as epic fsr they got rid of fsr
2018 Specialized Epic is not a FSR anymore as listed here… but it is even better than ever, my a 2018 Epic, its a rocketship..
i prefer a 30 to 35mm stem
Xc is the best sport in the world
Specialised are really good
@A or Ta damn that’s an old bike. the tech is probably still on par with entry level mtb’s though… but the material must be really worn out.
Cannondale F-Si ???
No idon’t like
First two are not XC MTB but Full MTB. Cant watch this further.
