Moots is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year so we look back at some of the brand’s unique bike designs and product decisions over the years, starting with the YBB soft tail mountain bike released in the 1980s.
The latest Shimano 4-piston XT brake set, officially designated BR-M8120, boasts a few notable tweaks and improvements as I’ve discovered over the past several months of testing.
The FSA SL-K cranks, chainring, and BB have been middle-of-nowhere silent no matter how long I stand and climb after slopping through the mud.
Named for a wily critter, the Pyga Hyrax is a 140 travel bike with a 150mm fork, designed to be as fast and as sure-footed as its namesake across challenging lines.
Wireless sensors track the fork and frame to help riders optimize suspension settings. There’s also an anti-theft system built in.
The Crankbrothers Synthesis wheels feature different front and wheel specs to optimize ride feel and performance on the trail.
Need more bag-free hydration options, but don’t have the frame mounts for it? The Granite Design AUX bottle cage could be a good option.
The Fezzari Solitude is a new carbon hardtail mountain bike that’s engineered to ride the line between playful and racy.
Over time brands and consumers alike have latched onto designations like trail and enduro as a way to convey a bike’s intentions. But shorthand descriptors leave important details unstated, and in some cases, can lead buyers astray.
The main docking platform of the 135mm-wide Syncros Tofino saddle is flatter than most, with a bit of raised tail to dig your sit bones into on the way uphill.
