2017 MTB World Cup bike bike coverage

September 6th, 2017

The UCI Mountain Bike World Cup is happening right now, so here are a few bikes to get you excited.


Five-time World Champion and current EWS points leader, @SamHill13, is choosing to race his Enduro bike in Cairns. His prototype @NukeproofBikes Mega is similar to what he raced to second place at EWS Whistler, with a few small changes to make it more DH orientated. The biggest change is in the drivetrain, where his SRAM X01 Eagle™ drivetrain has been replaced with the downhill specific SRAM X01 DH. Slowing Sam down are the all-new SRAM Code brakes which have already been raced to both EWS and UCI World Cup Downhill victories in 2017. Up front he is running a RockShox Lyrik RCT3 with the new Charger 2 damper. Handling the bumps out the back is a RockShox Super Deluxe RCT. And, last but not least is a RockShox Reverb Stealth with 1x Remote making sure his seat is always at the correct height. #MTBworlds Photo by @svenmartinphoto | #SRAM
