2019 Enduro Mountain bike Season

Mountain biking has always been one of cycling’s fastest developing disciplines. Starting out on gravel and meadows, mountain biking’s evolution has brought it to where we stand today. In competition, Enduro is one of the latest disciplines with the Enduro World Series visiting stunning locations worldwide. Focused on the very best trails available in each region it is a showcase of technology, rider ability, fitness and nature.

Continuous improvement

One of the very best aspects of mountain biking as a sport? The ability to improve both your fitness as well as your riding skills. There’s always room to improve. The trails you considered unrideable a short while ago are now tackled without any issue. At the same time only focusing on technical skills will leave you gasping for air. Mountain biking is an all-round sport which pushes riders and bikes further and further. This strive for continuous improvement, pushing your limits beyond what you’ve ever imagined.

This strive to be the best is what put riders like Jesse Malamed, Greg Gallaghan and Martin Maes in the upper echelons of mountain biking. Gallaghan, the only Irish pro mountainbiker to date, started racing as a self-supported rider, taking his van all over Europe racing downhills at the highest levels and making a name for himself in 2016 by winning the Wicklow EWS. Jesse Melamad has grown up in the mountainbike paradise of British Columbia and stormed to his first EWS win in 2017 in Whistler.

 

 

Martin Maes

Belgium’s Martin Maes has been at the very top right from the bat. Snatching up his first elite win in 2016 in Finale Ligure, he has continued his incredible rise with not only wins in Enduro racing, but also with a downhill World Cup win in La Bresse in 2018 and narrowly missing out on becoming the 2018 DH World Champion later that year in Lenzerheide. Martin has won the two first EWS rounds of 2019, winning in Tasmania and Rotorua. This is the man to beat.

Enduro World Series 2019

With Martin Maes dominating the openings rounds in Tasmania and Rotorua, we’re excited to see the riders race in the third EWS race of 2019 in Madeira. With six rounds to go the battle is far from over and racing at the top level is closer than ever before. Tune in to enduroworldseries.com for live updates on coming races. 

The ideal Enduro Mountainbike drivetrain

There’s a lot of factors adding up to that ultimate race machine. Geometry, suspension, sizing, gears, wheels, tyres…the mountain bike puzzle can be challenging. For this very reason, we’ve created our newest XTR with flexibility in mind. It provides the top performance you desire, with industry leading chain retention, smooth shifting, reliable and powerful braking and a tremendous range in gears.
