1. Scott Spark RC 900 SL ($3815)
It is the best bike of the year in the category for Bike Magazine. Polyvalent, optimal uphill and downhill of the mountains, has the main frame of rigid carbon Spark and wheels of 29 inches that make it quite light since it does not exceed 10 kilos.

3. Mondraker Podium Carbon ($5950)

The Mondraker Podium Carbon can be adjusted for rebounding or blocking, low-speed understanding and precarious air.
