Vancouver Island is a unique place in the world, not simply because of the vast network of trails so easily accessible but because the variety of styles provides riding for nearly everyone. Each coastal town boasts a vibrant mountain biking community with their own distinct riding style and culture.
To some, it’s about carving endless ribbons of buff, flowy singletrack. To others, it’s the challenge of punchy trails, technical climbs and off-camber roots. A trail bike is versatile, light, and exceedingly capable, climbing as well as they descend and conquering trails. It's the right bike for anything from a quick stint on the trails to a brutal day of racing.
Enduro and all mountain ..
Charge fearlessly down the mountain, then pedal back to the top to do it again. Enduro bikes are purpose-built to take on anything in their way while being capable and efficient when scrambling up those punishing climbs. Modern bike trails take us all over the mountain. You need a reliable tool that takes you up the climbs with ease and gets you down the trails in a flash.
Hardtails - the workhorse of the mountain biking world ..
.. lighter, simpler, less expensive, more durable, and more reliable than a frame with rear suspension. If you’re looking for an efficient race machine, a carbon fibre hardtail might be the bike for you. Hardtails also make great adventure bikes for bikepacking. Build a hardtail with a longer-travel fork and plus-size tires and you’ll have a fun ripper for romping around your local trails.
Electric assist - power up, charge down.
Electric mountain bikes are here, growing in popularity, and despite some access concerns continue to get better, more enjoyable to ride. Their small motors help you ride faster, farther, and can making challenging climbs less daunting. Every bike we sell uses a mid-drive (instead of a hub) motor and for good reason. A mid-drive motor builds a bike with better weight distribution. Plus keeping the wheels light helps the rear suspension perform better.
