We’ve tested 66 bikes over the last twelve months, with ten of those rolling away with a perfect ten rating
If you like your thrills pure, the best hardtails of 2017 came from Ragley, with its steel Blue Pig, Vitus with its sub £500 Nucleus 275 VR, and Norco with its Plus-tyred Fluid.
There was even more competition in the 130-150mm trail bike market, with outstanding models emerging from the direct-sales sector and traditional bricks and mortar brands.
In no particular order we loved the pace of the chubby-tyred Scott Spark Plus, superb suspension of the Trek Fuel EX 7 29 and the sheer fun factor of the Commencal Meta TR.
YT’s Jeffsy 29 and 27 both impressed for their light weight, inspirational handling and outstanding spec.
And at opposite ends of the price spectrum there was the affordable, yet amazing, Calibre Beastnut and the hilarious handling of the stunning Evil Calling.
So ten bikes, all worthy top marks, but only one of them can rise to the top and take the coveted MBR Bike of the Year award 2017.
