Bikeradar's Tom Marvin riding the Rocky Mountain Altitude e-bike

Our expert’s verdicts on some of the best mountain bike gear you can buy

As we head into the new year full of anticipation for the new bikes and gear that 2018 will bring, here are some of our sister site BikeRadar's highlights from last year and what it all has to live up to...

We work closely with the testing team on BikeRadar to bring you the verdicts on all the products you see tested in MBUK. Last year, between us all, we tested hundreds of new bikes, components and kit, which all made it into our review pages in the magazine. The good news for you, as consumers, is that most of them were pretty decent, and there were some real standout products that our testers really got on well with. Here they talk you through what their favourite things were for 2017. We can’t wait to see what great new things we’ll be testing in 2018…

On the trail I found that the Fox 36 was more supple, gave better traction, less hand pain and more support than any of its competitors – or in fact any other trail fork that I've ridden.
