Why is XC so hot right now?

XC is having a vintage year in 2020, with a raft of new bikes being released. While the Olympics might not be happening, bike development hasn't stopped. We're also seeing the massive growth in 'downcountry' bikes - slacker short-travel trail bikes with plenty of XC DNA woven into their carbon frames. We've tested numerous here at BikeRadar, so Tom and Alex sit down and chat all things fast and flat-out. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

At BikeRadar we see a huge number of new bikes products come through the door. Individually they're interesting enough, but once you've seen a number over the course of a few months, trends become clear. Tom Marvin, Robin Weaver and Warren Rossiter look back through a few recent product releases to see what trends are hot right now in cycling.

July's Tech Review

Christini's AWD e-fat bike and more!

With drive going to both front and rear wheels, we thought Christini's new ebike was worth talking about. We also delved in to the new Trek Domane AL, Rapha's inclusive Women's 100 campaign, and the oh-so-sexy Continental GP5000 Tan Wall tyres. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

What's the deal with hookless rims? Making sense of road tubeless

Hookless rims are fairly new in road cycling, but what are they, and where have they come from? They’ve also proved fairly controversial, as without a fully recognised standard measurement for hookless, and in the wider sense, road tubeless, many rim and tyre manufacturers are stating only limited compatibility between brands. Simon, Matthew and Jack delve in to the subject in our latest podcast. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
