    For most mountain bikers, the braking experience is as important as it gets. A brake set that you are confident in will make you faster. No, that doesn't mean bombing down hills at Aaron Gwin speeds thinking that a four-piston will save you. No, the better you feel on your bike the faster and...

    Stanchions are a beefy 40mm. Travel is 120mm or 150mm. What is it It's a safe bet that when Magura first got into business back in 1893, they didn't expect to be making burly suspension forks for electric mountain bikes. But flash forward to modern times and the German company was one of the...

    At this point it is a given that mountain bike brakes must provide ample stopping power and controlled modulation. Miss either of those marks and your time on market will be short lived. Same goes for lever shape, which more and more is trending toward the shorter, one-finger variety. Now...

    Why aluminum? Most educated riders will argue that you will get the best bang for your buck by dressing up an aluminum frame with the nicest components you can afford. That makes a lot of sense. Generally speaking, aluminum bikes share the same geometry and suspension kinematics as their...

    Mountain bike component innovation can be polarizing. While some welcome new fangled electronics with open wallets, others continue to lament the inglorious death of the 26" wheel.
