We took the Orbea MX 30 hardtail to the Forest of Dean cross country trails. For an entry level hardtail at £529 r.r.p it went really well over the Vederer’s trail, fast flowing corners, big berms, roll overs and the rooty drops of the Free Miners trail.
Top marks to the Kona Precept for a floaty full suspension ride with greater speed and stability. This entry level full suspension bike is based on the design of the more expensive Kona Process. If you are graduating from a hardtail to full suspension the Precept is a great package at £1099 rrp. We have our ex showroom model at £999!
