This year has seen some of the coolest bikes, the most gorgeous kit and some of the most incredible victories in women’s mountain biking there has ever been.
As we come to the end of another year, it’s always good to reflect back and consider how far this sport has developed. With a roller-coasting ride, and unstoppable momentum, the future is seriously bright for female shredders around the globe.
At TWC, we’re fortunate enough to get our muddy hands on various bits and bobs for rigorous testing – and by testing, we mean ride the heck out of it. I’ve rounded up my favourite 10 MTB pieces from 2016. Everything from bikes and kit that I’ve enjoyed testing, think are great ideas or just love because they are seriously cool.
Last month I flew out to Arizona to test ride the new trail bikes from Liv. The Liv Pique is their new progressive cross-country stallion, and the Liv Hail is their badass enduro beauty.
I was blown away from the outset. Liv have totally designed this bike from a blank piece of paper, taking into consideration everything a female would want, and need from their all-mountain weapon.
My first impressions of the Liv Hail are of awe and excitement. I’m really looking forward to having some more test time with the Hail in the new year. You can read the full article here.
