Five mountain bikes to get you going

The elite mountain biking season is drawing to a conclusion, with the final round of the UCI MTB World Cup taking place in Italy this weekend. That said, there’s no better time to get yourself a brand new mountain bike, with huge savings to be made on dozens of bikes across our range. Whether you’re an experienced trail rider looking for an upgrade, or a fresh-faced roadie looking to swap the tarmac for the dirt this autumn, there’s something for you. Here are five of the best deals to be had right now:

Giant Anthem

Giant have been churning out top-quality cross-country bikes for years, and the latest off their production line is the Anthem. This model, the 650B 3, is a solid mid-range option that features a full Shimano groupset and RockShox full suspension. Built with speed in mind, and currently available with £300 off, it’s a great value bike for anyone looking to get off the beaten track.

Giant Glory

Whilst the Anthem is, by all standards, a glorious machine, the Glory certainly lives up to its name. The most complete bike Giant offer to anyone aside from their pro riders, it’s the lightest downhill frame they’ve ever produced. Finished off with SRAM’s premier X01 drivetrain, it’s now on sale at a whopping 30% off. It’s at the top end of the market, but if you’re going to hurtle down a mountain at ludicrous speeds, you might as well do it on a bike which is as reliable as it is fast.

Trek X-Caliber

If it’s a hardtail you’re after, Trek are trusted by pros and amateurs alike to provide rideable, high-performance bikes. The X-Caliber is one of the lighter, faster frames in the Trek stable, and boasts internal front derailleur cabling for a streamlined finish. Kitted out with Bontrager, Trek’s in-house component brand, we’re also big fans of the black and orange colour scheme. At just £699.99, we think this sleek, front suspension bike punches well above its weight.

Liv Obsess

When it comes to women’s mountain bikes, we’re just obsessed – forgive us – with Liv’s stellar range of hardtails. With a front suspension offering 100mm of travel, it is well equipped to cope with even the roughest of terrain, and Schwalbe’s Racing Ralph tyres offer unrivalled grip, meaning you can confidently flick the bike around corners in the wet. Shimano SLX hydraulic disc brakes complete this impressive machine that’s now available at a tasty discount.

Specialized Riprock

A kids’ bike fit for even the most ambitious young rider, the Riprock is built to withstand the heavy wear and tear that kids often put their bikes through when heading off-road. It comes fitted with fat 2.8 inch tyres, making it easier than ever to stay upright on those tricky surfaces that are so often encountered on a biking adventure. It’s a safe, great-looking bike that’s no slouch in the speed department, making it a perfect all-rounder for any budding trailblazer.

With any of these bikes underneath you, you can be sure that no matter where you point your wheels, you’re going to have a great time getting there.
