Mondraker Summum Pro Team – £7599
The final podium at the 2016 World Champs will have made for pleasant viewing for the people at Mondraker. Not only was Danny Hart opening up the champagne after a winning run on the Mondraker Summum, but Laurie Greenland and Florent Payet in second and third were also on the Summum. How’s that for an advert?
This is an impressive build, light as anything, and apparently it’s not too slow either…
Specialized S-Works Demo 8 – £7000
The Specialized S-Works Demo is most at home on rough, rocky, steep and technical downhill tracks.
It sails down the steepest terrain you can find with a silence that speaks volumes, and the clean, smooth style of the bike has become iconic in the world of mountain biking.
The bike has been proven on the big stage time and time again, with Aaron Gwin famously riding it to glory even without a chain in Leogang in 2015, and going on to take the series win in style.
