Please see below for a roundup of some of the best, latest and most innovative mountain bikes to see at the Show.
Kona Process 153 CR/DL 27.5
Evolved from its predecessor’s highly-regarded descending characteristics, the all new carbon Process 153 is stiff, smooth, and an absolute rocket. SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain and Guide RSC brakes, a RockShox Lyrik RCT3 fork and Super Deluxe RCT shock, and tubeless-ready 3C Maxxis Minions leave nothing to be desired… except another lap, of course.
Orange Alpine 6E
Mix an iconic chassis with modern technology and the result is Orange's Alpine 6E electric bike. Built in partnership with Shimano, whose E8000 drive unit offers three support modes that will give riders a boost up from zero to 16mph, Orange have delivered a stunning new take on their classic Stage 6 mountain bike.
FlareMAX is a proper sweet-spot chassis; the perfect trail bike. It's the only bike you'll need for ripping through the woods and conquering mountains. Light and responsive, yet fiercely capable. The combination of big wheels and mid travel is an irresistible recipe for fun; whether it's an all day epic or an evening blast, 29er or 650b+, FlareMAX is more versatile than you'll believe.
Designed to help you rediscover Enduro, the Focus Sam² consists of the F.O.L.D. chassis specially tailored to the requirements of the Enduro ensures a perfectly balanced combination of stability and sensitivity. The compact motor design allows modern, agile and aggressive geometry, leaving a machine that looks as good as it rides.
Kross Level 14.0 29”
Built on the same frame as the team bike which Jolanda Neff rode to victory in the 2017 Cross Country World Championships, the Kross Level 14.0 29” is extremely light weight and developed with a race-tough construction to meet the needs of the most demanding racers. Kitted out with SRAM X01 Eagle and DT Swiss XR 1501 SPLINE ONE wheels, this is a race-ready machine.
Ice Full Fat Off-Road Recumbent Trike
In December 2013, British adventurer Maria Leijerstam became the first person to cycle from the edge of the Antarctic to the South Pole. She achieved her incredible accomplishment on the predecessor to Ice's Full Fat recumbent trike, a beastie machine that combines durability and reliability with specialist features to conquer the most challenging terrain. Even more impressively, the Full Fat still features ICE's Compact Flat Twist Frame, allowing the trike to neatly fold for easy storage.
These bikes will be on display at the London Bike Show which takes place at ExCeL London between February 23-25. Visit www.thelondonbikeshow.co.uk to buy tickets.
