Top MOUNTAIN BIKES for 2022 – Vital MTB Favorites

Top MOUNTAIN BIKES for 2022 – Vital MTB Favorites

Vital MTB tested nearly 40 mountain bikes this year, and the bikes in this video stand out as our favorites going into 2022! We understand that individual riding goals differ depending on style and terrain, so the idea of picking a single mountain bike of the year doesn’t really help you. That’s why our top mountain bike selections from a year of testing will have something for everyone and in nearly every budget. Complete bike review links are below, so you can do more research to decide which bike might be best for you. Keep in mind that pricing and availability on all of these bikes could change in the blink of an eye.

Thank you for tuning in and we hope our video helped you find a bike to match your goals. We know that bikes aren’t cheap, and it’s easy to want the latest and greatest, but from everyone at Vital MTB, we hope that the ride, not the bike, is why you’re out having fun on two wheels. We’ll see you on the trails!

    Got a Canfield tilt and it is one of the most fun bikes I’ve owned



  3. fadjar roosdianto on July 17, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    No high pivot?



  4. I Made I New Channel Called ItszMeBtw on July 17, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    No Ripmo or Ripley? What?



  5. Jason Ramit on July 17, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    Thats awesome. But damn not even a year ago you can get a spect out YT capra for 5500. Mine came with everything that rallon has and half the price.



  6. yung cash register on July 17, 2022 at 10:36 pm

    nice final comment



  7. Nick Beef on July 17, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    Ibis, Santa Cruz are great bikes but it gets to the point of diminishing returns after $3000. I bought a Fezzari for $2800 and it is a freakin beast.



  8. Marek Kuri on July 17, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    Nukeproof Giga. Love it



  9. Tom Myers on July 17, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    Fk YouTube and their adverts !



  10. pilotfox66 on July 17, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    Nice video



  11. Christopher Houston on July 17, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    Your 6’4” tester on the alloy evo. What size bike was he riding? S5?



  12. Cali Love on July 17, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    Absolutely insane prices. I can afford it but I give these companies a big 🖕I will never justify paying that much for a damn bicycle.



  13. joe black on July 17, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    what about canyon new spectral 29er?



  14. Erik R on July 17, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    Yeti SB150. Mic drop



  15. cj from san andreas on July 17, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    lmao that DGAF bit was hillarious, would actually be a really good official ad for a mountain bike, you definitely have a creative mind for marketing, great video, cheers



  16. michael hunter on July 17, 2022 at 10:48 pm

  19. yngballr on July 17, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    Their answers sounded forced 😐



  20. Brian Burdett on July 17, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    This video just has me excited to go back to Boise.



  21. B J on July 17, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    Boy, today’s riders really like a lot of travel?

    No XC Hardtail or duallies?



  22. David Kennedy on July 17, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    Definitely the ride. But love the window shopping on this kind of hardware 🤟🏽



  23. pilotfox66 on July 17, 2022 at 10:55 pm

  25. david taylor on July 17, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    I just bought a specialized Stumpjumper Pro full carbon and the bike is like riding on a cloud



  26. Lo on July 17, 2022 at 11:02 pm

  35. Michele Bean on July 17, 2022 at 11:09 pm

  36. Çılgın Rizeli on July 17, 2022 at 11:09 pm

  37. ilalla on July 17, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Marin Alpine Trail carbon 2



  38. Benjamin Roberts on July 17, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    Yeti has to be talking to their lawyers about this one … so many brands getting a shoutout without a single Y 🙀



  39. Alfonso Berry on July 17, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    what no cannondale mtb



  40. Alex Fracyon on July 17, 2022 at 11:16 pm

  41. Jimmy Main jr. on July 17, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    Jesus christ 4 thousand what?



  42. Nathan H on July 17, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    Ofc Orbea the best 😏😏😏😏 I have the occam (not better than the rallon) and it’s still crazy good



  43. BIRADABAI on July 17, 2022 at 11:17 pm


  44. Alfonso Berry on July 17, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    thank you mtb for not showong the cheater bike e bike



  45. SUNSYLO1973 on July 17, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    I got the cheap MTB from Walmart for 108 bucks I know I know alright 😂😂😂✌🏽



  46. RAMESH K K on July 17, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    Is it available in India?



  47. Alex Doner on July 17, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    after watching every Quick Clip on every bike I think I’ll definitely always be an s-worked person but my second choice would be the Orbee just all the specs on it are really really awesome and it looks very similar to my 2018 Specialized camber



  48. Scott Gibson on July 17, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    The price of bikes has gone off the tracks. Nearly five grand for an aluminum frame bike is insane. I can afford these crazy prices, but I feel for younger people and those who truly just want to ride and have a family to support.



  49. kevin kruegar on July 17, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    Loved the DGAF shipping 🤣 couldn’t be more accurate lol



  50. Jose Pineda on July 17, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    MEGATOWER 🤘🤘🤘🤘
    THE BEST MACHINE FOREVER
