Your £5 booking fee will be donated to Hamsterley Trailblazers who do a fantastic job of maintaining and developing the trails of Hamsterley Forest, making it a centre of excellence for mountain biking in the UK.


Cannondale Habit Carbon 2

Completely redesigned for 2019, the ALL-NEW Habit gets a new look, progressive geometry and the new Proportional Response suspension design, turning this do-it-all fun machine into a full-on trail slayer.

Cube Stereo 150 C:68 TM 29

An enduro bike that’ll reset your expectations. The brand-new Stereo 150 C:68 TM 29 is built around a completely new frameset crafted from premium C:68 carbon. It’s a super capable all-rounder that’s almost as adept propelling its rider upwards as it is careering back down the trail.

Focus Jam2 9.6 Plus

The all-mountain ready Jam² 9.6 from Focus is built to take you further, higher and ramp up your fun levels. With the compact design of the Shimano Steps E8000 motor and battery, the geometry is modern, agile and aggresive.


Merida eOne Sixty 900e

An aggressive enduro geometry, shortened chainstays and 160mm of rear travel combined with the power from a Shimano Steps E8000 motor has won the eOne Sixty multiple tests and awards. 650B+ wheels equipped with 2.8″ tyres mean this bike is hugely capable when the terrain gets tough and offers tonnes of traction on the ups.

Mondraker Foxy XR Carbon

The Foxy Carbon is Mondraker’s benchmark trail bike. With increased stiffness and riding comfort the Foxy offers great traction on technical climbs, exquisite handling and spectacular downhill prowess to establishes itself as the most complete multi-purpose Mountain Bike Mondraker have ever manufactured.

Nukeproof Mega 275 Carbon Pro

Designed to excel on the toughest enduro tracks; the gravity focused specification of the Mega 275 Carbon Pro is designed to descend fast but maintain the pedalling efficiency for all-day epics. Now in its 4th evolution, the Mega was conceived in an attempt by Nukeproof to build the perfect bike to take on the famous Megavalanche race above the village of Alpe D’Huez.

Trek Slash 8

Slash 8 is an aluminium enduro mountain bike with fast-rolling 29er wheels, a 160 mm RockShox fork and Trek’s exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft shock. Smart spec, high-end suspension and the burly Alpha Aluminium frame make Slash 8 a high-value ride for enduro racers and all-around trail rippers who want a bike that can rail sketchy descents faster than anyone else in their crew.

Yeti SB150

When you throw a leg over the all-new SB150, you’ll find it rides strikingly similar to nothing. It rides bigger, climbs better and is difficult to put into a neat little box. Is it a race rig? Absolutely. In fact, the steep, grueling downhill tracks of the Enduro World Series pushed our engineers to make a bike that could handle the toughest downhills, but still be efficient enough to ride all day in the mountains.
