Hardtail Vs Full Suspension | Cross Country Mountain Bike Shootout

When it comes to World Cup level Cross Country racers, travelling to a venue with 2 bikes is not uncommon. That way the racer can decide on the day, which they feel more comfortable riding on the course in hand. Neil takes a look at how the course dictates this choice and which he would choose on his own very varied local loop.

Neil goes head to head on a course he's super familiar with. Will the full sus bike make enough time on the rough stuff to make up for it's extra weight on the climbs and slightly less efficient pedalling? Let's find out...

XC Race Bike Vs Trail Hardtail | Which Is The Better Mountain Bike?

A Stallion vs a Donkey. A Supercar against an SUV. Neil and Blake compare their favourite hardtails. Both bikes might have a solid rear end, but that's where the similarities end...

Neil's on a top of the range Canyon Exceed CF SLX, an all out cross country racing machine. It's got steep head angles and short travel. It's light. It's fast. How does it compare?

Blake's riding the Nukeproof Scout, an aluminium do it all trail bike. With wider tyres, a dropper seatpost and aggressive geometry. It might be heavier, but there is very little that this can't do.

Top 5 | 2020 Cross Country Bikes

Here are our Top 5 cross country mountain bikes of 2020. Cross country mountain bikes often feature some of the most exciting developments in bicycle design — the bikes must be light enough to handle lung-bursting climbs while also being capable enough to handle increasingly gnarly descents.

So in no particular order, here is our pick of the top 5 cross country bikes of 2020 that we think are pushing the envelope of bicycle design.

Catch up on the results, watch the replays and read what went down on an incident-packed day at the Mercedes-Benz UCI MTB Cross-Country World Cup in Italy.

Generations old and new sparkle at the XCO World Cup in Vallnord. Air was at a premium for the finals at Round 5 of the UCI XCO World Cup in Vallnord, Andorra. Physically one of the toughest races of the year, the 3.8km course sits at 2000m altitude and new changes for 2018 saw the course favour climbers even more than in previous years. With a hot, sunny race day on the cards, the exposed, oxygen-deficient climbs would be a challenge to all.
