It’s a little tricky to pin down exactly what makes an enduro bike, an enduro bike, but that doesn’t stop manufacturers and consumers alike from trying. We asked more than 2,100 Singletracks readers which enduro — AKA all-mountain — bikes were their favorites, and these bikes came out on top.
10. Commencal Meta AM 4.2 (tie)
Commencal sells mountain bikes directly to consumers online, and the Meta AM is one of the company’s most popular models. The Meta AM 4.2 represents the fourth major version of this bike, and for 2018 a minor geometry tweak gives the Meta AM a longer reach for improved stability at high speeds.
The Commencal Meta AM 4.2 runs 27.5-inch wheels and features 170/160mm of travel front/rear. Like all bikes in the Commencal line, the Meta AM 4.2 is only offered with an aluminum frame. Back in 2012 the company decided carbon fiber is “dangerous to implement and is not currently processed within an acceptable environment for workers in China and elsewhere,” and the company still sticks with that decision today.
The Meta AM 4.2 is the most affordable all-mountain/enduro bike on this list, with base models starting at $2,399 and topping out at $4,299.
10. Ibis Mojo HD4 (tie)
Last year the Singletracks staff drew up a list of our favorite enduro bikes, which included the Ibis Mojo HD3. Well, since that list was published, Ibis has updated the HD to version 4 with all new DW-link kinematics. The bike still offers 153mm of rear suspension travel and 160mm of travel up front. The Mojo HD4 is also longer and more slack than the previous Mojo HD, version 3.
Like other enduro bikes on this list, the Ibis Mojo HD4 accepts 27.5″ wheels with tires up to 2.8″ wide. Pricing for this full-carbon enduro bike starts at $2,999 for the frame and goes up to $9,000+ for the top-of-the-line build.
