It has now ridden 400 km, and i have a squeaky front wheel, and there's water coming from inside the bearing. I usually service all my bikes myself, and it's bought online, so i don't really want...

    The new Merida eOne-Sixty is finally here, and the eOne-Forty too

    Launched back in 2017, the original Merida eOne-Sixty was a revolution to me. New, compact motor designs allowed manufacturers such as Merida to design a frame with sensible chainstay length and bottom bracket drop. This did wonders for handling on the trails. The new eOne-Sixty isn’t as...

    First ride on the superlight Superior iXF 9.7 - Bosch SX powered

    The lightweight Superior iXF was introduced a while ago, but it didn’t materialize. Not until now. We were lucky enough to ride a pre-production version of what will eventually be the iXF 9.7. Why were we so excited about this bike, you ask? It’s the motor. Bosch Performance SX 55 Nm motor...

    2024 Scott Voltage eRide – mild yet aggressive

    The age of mild and relatively lightweight, I mean Superlight emtbs, is truly upon us. So many electric trailbikes are being introduced, and most of them are lighter bikes with less battery and power. Scott is now out with their second lightweight bike, the 2024 Scott Voltage eRide. What I find...
  6. This is the new Focus Vam² SL - a short travel lightweight

    This is the new Focus Vam² SL - a short travel lightweight

    Do you find emtbs are too similar? A full-power emtb usually has about 160 mm suspension travel. A mild, lightweight bike usually is at about 150 mm. This really is quite a lot of travel. What happened to the bikes we used to call “regular trailbikes” with around 130 mm of travel? Bikes such as...
  7. The best 2024 emtb doesn’t exist, but it easily could!

    The best 2024 emtb doesn’t exist, but it easily could!

    I haven’t ridden all the 2024 emtbs. And all 2024 emtbs haven’t even been launched yet. So, I am of course not able to say which bike is the best. But there is one bike that could be a strong contender in my book. A powerful, lightweight, and reasonably cheap bike. Hear me out in this video or...

    2023 Marin Alpine Trail E1 – a different kind of test

    We picked up the Marin Alpine Trail E1 towards the end of 2023. But thanks to both covid and snow, we barely got to ride it on bare trails. Consequently, most of the testing was done on snow. And it turned out the Alpine Trail E1 was well suited for proper winter riding. Watch the video review...

  10. 2023 Orbea Wild H10 review

    2023 Orbea Wild H10 review

    The Orbea Wild caught a lot of attention when it was updated for 2023, mainly because the top-of-the line model was a sub 21 kg bike. That’s very light for a full fat emtb. We’re not testing the most expensive carbon version though. We’re sort of testing the opposite model, the heavier Orbea...

    2024 Canyon Neuron:ON CF 9 review

    We've ridden mid-travel bikes before that were very similar to the more common 160mm travel bikes. Comparable weight, similar geometry, same wheels. And we've wondered; why? What's the upside of going mid-travel if you get the same bike, only less capable? Then there's the cheap mid-travel...

But if you care about battery tech, remember to read the rest of this article. The Sram Eagle Powertrain...

    Specialized SL 1.2 motor review

    The new Specialized SL 1.2 motor resembles the old SL 1.1 in a few ways. Both the looks and weight is very similar, and they are both “generous” motors. I find there are two categories of mild emtb motors, they can be generous or stingy. See our motor review or keep reading below. A generous...

    Finale Ligure for a first-timer

    Before the summer, I made a quick thread about Finale Ligure riding. As it was my first time going there, and the amount of trails felt overwhelming, I figured it would be cool to know if anyone else had similar plans for the summer. Anyway, now I figured I would write up a short follow-up for...

    The most popular EMTB brand... in Norway 2023

    "Our new emtb is the greatest and we're the best-selling brand". I was occasionally told such things when I was picking up a new bike for testing. But they couldn’t all be the best selling. And no-one really knew. So, I decided to find out. Since 2018, we’ve been doing a simple survey asking...

    Analogue (MTB for the triggered) Fix?

    Has anyone else got an analogue MTB alongside your EMTB - that you actually use!? I have, but I must admit I’ve not used it for many months and have forgotten about it. So tonight I took Pinkie out to do a lap of Llandegla Red and Black trails. She is a Specialized Enduro with c.170mm travel...
