Starting with the exclusive look at how Specialized created the rad new Stumpjumper. You can win yourself a set of RockShox BoXXer World Cup forks. We’ll then give you 10 reasons why modern day hardtails rock, and after that we’ll examine Shimano’s stunning new XTR groupset. There’s a big tech special examining the anatomy of bike set-ups between grassroots level and EWS Pros.
Speaking of Pros, our ‘Me & My Lid’ feature focuses on the sweet custom helmets of your favourite riders. We collaborated with our buddies at KWT for a behind the scenes look at how Maxxis developed Minnaar’s new signature Assegai tyre. We’ve showcased 16 of the best flat pedals on the market and we’ve also put together a Retrospective ‘by numbers’ looking back at our first 50 issues. We’ll also review the latest trail slayers from Devinci and Trek.
How about some awesome interviews? We’ve got Kye A’Hern on his rapid rise to becoming the fastest Jr downhiller on the planet, we spent a few days hanging out with Kyle Strait whilst he was in Oz recently, and we’ve also got young style king Tyson Wise and Jai Motherwell both getting the microphone treatment.
All that plus your regular favourite articles, columns, banging gallery shots, the latest news and tech. And to cap it all off, our boy Baxter Maiwald lands his first [R]evo cover with a banger shot by Ryan Finlay down at the Maydena MTB Park.
