New E-Ticket Bike by Foes Racing Photo: Pat Carrigan From the day Disneyland first opened their doors in 1955, millions of attendees gained entry first with an admission fee before purchasing a separate book of tickets that actually got them on the rides. These tickets were distinguished in alphabetical order—the A-tickets were for the slowest, dullest rides; B-tickets brought some added excitement; and both the C- and D-tickets upped the level of wonder and fun. It was only four years after they first opened when enough new rides had been completed that the E ticket was added to the booklet. Ah, yes, for those old enough to remember, the E-ticket was the gold standard for all that was the most thrilling and memorable. Over time, the word “E-ticket” became synonymous with an experience unlike any other. Enter the Foes E-Ticket. REMEMBER THE MATTERHORN? There’s a reason that Brent Foes is in the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame, and it has nothing to do with his talent on a bike. It does, however, have a lot to do with his talent to make a bike. For over three decades Brent Foes has proven himself a master craftsman with a remarkable sense of foresight for mechanical necessity, which helped usher mountain biking into a new realm of long-travel suspension. That was when back in 1991 he designed and built his first bicycle with 6 inches of travel—an unheard-of amount of suspension at the time. Foes has continued to cultivate an unparalleled artisanship in his chosen medium—6061 T6 aircraft-grade aluminum—ever since. Foes Racing bicycles are known for their resiliency and ability to be ridden aggressively. A hallmark of the brand is to produce each model—from trail and enduro bikes to fat bikes and World Cup-winning downhill racers—in low quantities with high quality. With this one-of-a-kind Foes, the company is considering a short run of limited-edition power-assist bikes. We got our hands on Brent’s first attempt at making an e-bike to see what could be possible from Foes in the pedal-assist category. THE BIKE The same visually perfect welds that he became famous for stitch together this unique machine. “This bike is a mix between our Mixer Enduro bike and the Mixer Hydro downhill bike. It really is its own creature,” says Foes sales manager Bobby Acuna. The term “mix” has been part of Foes’ design parlance since 2014 when they began adapting the mixed wheel-size combo that matches a 29-inch front wheel with a 27.5-inch rear wheel. Two test mules were created before arriving at this final geometry iteration that will come in two sizes: medium and large. Unique from Foes’ other frames, the bike has a hydro-formed top tube and down tube that adds to its robustly awesome, industrial look as it wraps into the externally mounted battery. Another show of bulletproof engineering is this motor guard. THE MOTOR With its American headquarters located just a lunch drive away, choosing Shimano as the engine and drive component supplier for their first electric chassis was an easy decision. Foes selected the 250-watt STEPS E8000 motor, owing to its reliable reputation to its celebrated response for out-of-the-saddle pedaling. THE PARTS Paying a retail price of $10,000 will get you a complete bike with your choice of fork, shock and custom color. You could also go the made-to-order route and get a frame only for $6700 that would come with all the drive parts, including a motor, battery, shock and rear axle. Our test bike came complete with a suite of Fox hydraulics—36 fork with Fit GRIP2 damper, Float X2 rear shock and Transfer dropper post—rolling on Stan’s Arch MK3 enduro wheels with Schwalbe tires (29×2.5 inches up front and 27.5×2.4 inches in the rear). The cockpit on this bike is wide and clean. The STEPS display looks even tinier here. Controls in the cockpit were mounted to a 50mm Answer ATAC AME stem and 800mm-wide by 20mm rise Thomson Downhill handlebar with 9 degrees of backsweep and 5 degrees of upsweep, which would be able to leverage the bike in the desired direction once motoring on the trail. WHO IT’S MADE FOR If you’re the type of consumer who likes to pick a familiar, ordinary product from the eye-level shelf, keep shopping. The Foes e-bike is for the aficionado who can truly appreciate its rarity and brand legacy. This top-shelf item may be out of reach for most, but if exclusivity is an attraction, consider the e-bike your perfect north. THE RIDE The demeanor of the Foes is true to its bloodline—born and bred to rip and shred. The 2.4:1 suspension ratio provides a supple feel at the beginning of its travel and allows small trail chatter to be easily absorbed. The bike stays planted well through the middle of the shock stroke, while its slight rising rate in the suspension curve encourages aggression from the rider of this 160mm-travel bike. If you back down from a gap, drop or line, it certainly won’t be at the bike’s dissuasion. We found ourselves riding harder and charging deeper into turns and jumps, producing only smiles from each confidence-inspired test rider. One thing you can always expect from Foes is incredible welds and build quality. The Shimano motor’s power delivery encouraged riding the Foes with a similar mindset as you would ride a traditional bicycle; it complemented heavy torque inputs better than some other engines on the market that are able to assist power, but only seem to be most effective at a specific pedaling cadence. And the larger range of gears on the 11-46T rear cluster could easily be utilized thanks to the Shimano XT shifter’s capability to change two gears at a time when moving down the cassette, which encouraged quick and accurate acceleration, thanks to the electric assistance from the Shimano unit. The front end is forgiving, both in the slack head angle and the long-travel Fox 36 Performance fork. The bike’s handling left us feeling extremely well-centered over the wheels. Foes absolutely nailed the weight distribution and balance of the motor and battery placement on the chassis. Railing turns without worry of the front wheel washing out made us fall in love with the control of this bike—all carve with no push in the turns. It jumped well, and while its hefty weight of 50.635 pounds was certainly noticed when loading and unloading the bike, it seemed to become an unnoticed characteristic in the dirt. THE VERDICT Want to break out of the plastic mold of owning a run-of-the-mill carbon bike, literally? The Foes delivers one heck of a good time in an unparalleled package of metal artisanship that will most likely outlive the 1000 recharge cycles of an ordinary lithium-ion battery and produce long-term fun that’s worth the investment.

Kinesis has launched its first e-bike, with the Rise entering the fray at The Cycle Show as an aluminium hardtail with a Fazua motor, 29-inch wheels and progressive trail geometry. Electric bikes have dominated the two trade shows of early autumn – Eurobike and The Cycle Show – but typically fall into one of three categories: road, commuter/utility and full-suspension. It’s rarer to see a properly sorted trail hardtail with a motor, but Kinesis is a brand that has long tapped into the British fascination with hardtails, so it’s no surprise to see the Rise emerge as the Sussex-based brand’s first e-bike. (Interestingly, however, Kinesis says an electric gravel bike is also in development, with an expected launch date of January 2020.) “We have a fascination with hardtails,” says Kinesis UK’s Tom Catton. “This is a bike for people who are curious about e-bikes but who don’t want to lose that elemental sense of mountain biking – riding singletrack, hitting berms and doing drops – or if you ride with faster people and want a leveller, but at the same time it’s not too powerful.” Best electric bike: 12 e-bikes you should be considering Cycle Show 2019 highlights | New bikes from Condor, Shand, Vielo, Ribble and Genesis Kinesis Rise key details and tech specs Kinesis’ first electric bike Trail hardtail with a reach-focused geometry Fazua motor and battery system Claimed range of approximately 55km / 1,000m of elevation Shimano SLX (£3,200) and SRAM GX Eagle (£3,500) build options Available from December 2019 The Rise uses a Fazua drive system with a 400W motor and 250Wh battery. Rob Spedding/Immediate Media Fazua motor for ‘natural’ assistance A Fazua drive system with a 400W motor and a 250Wh battery sits at the heart of the Rise, chosen over more powerful systems due to its low weight and natural, progressive assistance, according to Catton. “The Fazua system is very natural,” he says. “You still retain the playful qualities of a mountain bike.” The system offers three modes: Breeze (up to 125 watts of power), River (up to 250 watts) and Rocket (up to 400 watts). The Rise has a range of approximately 55km or 1,000m of ascent using mixed modes, according to Kinesis, and you can change modes using the neatly integrated top tube unit, as opposed to a rudimentary control on the handlebar. The one-piece battery and motor can also be removed from the down tube and replaced with a blanking plate if you want to run the Rise as a conventional hardtail, although Catton admits that’s unlikely. Claimed weight for the Rise is 18.9kg with the Fazua system in place and 16kg without. Fazua now offers an integrated control panel. George Scott/Immediate Media Reach-focused trail geometry The Rise has also seen Kinesis follow the likes of Specialized in adopting a reach-focused approach to geometry, with the four sizes available labeled as L1, L2, L3 and L4. The progressive geometry combines a long reach with a short seat tube and XL dropper post, giving buyers more flexibility in choosing a bike to match their fit or riding style, according to Catton. “It’s important that a hardtail has really good geometry,” he says. “We’ve focused on pushing a long bike and a short seat tube, so there’s flexibility about how you size it up. If you’re an old-school rider who likes a short bike, you can go smaller, but if you want a longer bike, the seat tube is small enough to allow that.” To take an L3 bike as an example, you’ll find a 485.2mm reach, 440mm seat tube and 170mm dropper post (a 150mm post is used on L1 and L2 bikes). Head tube and seat tube angles are 66.7 degrees and 75.5 degrees across all sizes, keeping things relatively slack at the front-end and aiming to ensure the Rise remains a capable climber through the rear. This may be a prototype but the ‘galactic blue’ paint will carry over to production machines. Rob Spedding/Immediate Media Kinesis Rise specs, pricing and availability The Rise will be available in two builds, with a SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain for £3,500 and Shimano SLX 11-speed parts for £3,200. Both builds will share TRP Slate T4 brakes, an FSA crankset, a X-Fusion E-Slide 34 130mm fork, Sector 9E E-Specific wheels and 2.5-inch Maxxis DHF/Aggressor front/rear tyres. The SRAM bike gets an FSA cockpit, while the more affordable Shimano machine gets Kinesis own-brand parts. The ‘galactic blue’ paint featured on the prototype displayed at The Cycle Show will carry through to production bikes – and it is very nice indeed. The Rise will be available to pre-order in October, with delivery expected in December.

Bernard Kerr battled through heavy mist to become the first person to ever win the world’s toughest mountain bike downhill race for the second time. Gee Atherton and Joe Smith completed an all-British podium. Here is all you need to know: – Built by local legend Dan Atherton in Wales, the course combines tricky technical downhill features with huge freeride-style jumps including the breathtaking final fly off which sees riders fly 65ft towards the finish line. – Saturday’s qualifying for the sixth edition of the gruelling race took place on a near perfect track in bright sunshine amongst the hills of Dyfi Valley. – Kerr, one of the best all-round riders in the world, dominated qualifying with a time of 2m50s as Atherton showed he was also in form just two seconds behind. – Sunday’s weather, though, turned in front of a sold-out crowd of 3,000 as heavy mist and tricky wind peppered the track to make life difficult for the riders. – Former world junior champion Kade Edwards, Charlie Hatton and Kaos Seagrave all suffered in the conditions before Welshman Smith’s incredible run was marred by a rear tyre puncture that forced him to go round the final jump – losing three vital seconds in the process. – Reigning champion Atherton’s run was messy, however it was fast and enough to take the lead by 2.5s with Kerr then looking to repeat his 2016 triumph. – He attacked the course with clean lines and made up speed on the open sections, where other riders crashed, to power into the final section where he held his nerve. – Kerr revealed: “It was a tough day with all the weather, but I tried to carve new lines. I found it easy to focus today. Winning twice is unreal. I broke my hand a few weeks ago, so I missed half the season. It makes me feel really good, after missing races and knowing I was going quick this year, to come back and win it.” – Two-time world downhill champion Atherton added: “The rain rolled in, the mist rolled in and we went back to classic Red Bull Hardline with dark, Welsh conditions which always makes for a tough race. I enjoyed it. I had a few slips on the run, but it wasn’t a bad run.” 2019 Red Bull Hardline course features Rock drop: 13ft drop Cannon: 57ft travelled Step Up: 40mph speed required to clear jump Dirty Ferns: 45ft travelled Road Gap: 55ft trajectory Out of the woods: 45ft travelled The Final Fly Off: 65ft travelled – biggest jump ever at Red Bull Hardline

BikeRadar‘s Tech Talk podcast series is back and in Episode 5, technical editor Tom and technical writer Seb dig deep into the ever-changing and never-ending debate on what diameter wheel you mountain bike ‘should’ have and how wide the tyres mounted to your wheels might be. Debates over wheel size in mountain biking are seemingly endless. First, there were 26in wheels, then 29er stormed on to the scene and the larger diameter found fans in the cross-country world, but older geometries just didn’t work out when travel numbers grew. Then, out of nowhere, the 650b wheel arrived and killed off 26in almost instantly. The Bontrager XR4 Team Issue tyres look plenty beefy enough for a trail bike. Trek In the background, 29ers started working nicely in longer travel bikes, while plus-sized and fat tyres also entered the market. Eventually, things settled down, with wider 29in wheels dominating bikes designed to go fast, while 650b retained its place in the ‘fun’ trail and enduro bike market, and shared the honours in downhill. Then, in 2019, the Mullet truly arrived: 29in at the front, 650b at the back. Why? Let Seb and Tom talk you through the what/why/how of the latest mountain bike wheel size drama. Tom’s long-term test bike, his Santa Cruz Chameleon, is being run as a mullet bike. Steve Behr The links you need How does wheel size really affect performance What’s the fastest tyre size for mountain biking? Are 27.5+ bikes faster than 29ers? We’ve got a new series – Bike Shorts!

Orbea has grand intentions for its Wild FS e-bike — one that climbs better than its stellar Occam trail bike, yet descends better than the also-high-scoring Rallon enduro bike. A big ask, no doubt. Bosch celebrates 10 years of ebikes with new motors Best e-bikes in 2019 Orbea says the Wild FS is a bike that can cover a broad range of riding, from all-day trail rides to hitting gnarly enduro tracks. With a Bosch motor that puts out up to 340 per cent of your pedal input, there’s plenty of power to carry tougher components and heavier/stronger materials up the hills and forego a drop in pedalling efficiency in the name of better suspension performance. Meanwhile, 29in wheels and 160mm of travel front and rear should be enough to get you in and out of pretty much any situation. Orbea Wild FS first ride review Lots of grip means lots of cornering speed. Orbea Orbea chose the latest Bosch motor because it says that it’s the least intrusive motor in terms of ride feel, yet still has plenty of power to help on technical terrain. The ability to run a range of different battery options is also a bonus. Orbea has built a piggyback system that allows you to strap a second battery on to the down tube, extending the range. All the Wild FS models come with a carbon front triangle, holding that Bosch motor. The rear triangle is also carbon on all but the entry-level M20 model, which gets an alloy back end. Shimano’s XTR groupset adorns the top M-LTD model. Orbea Orbea uses its ‘OMR’ carbon in the frame’s construction, including in the swing link (a 150g saving over an alloy link). Oversizing the pivots, for stiffness, and reinforcing the rear end leads to a claimed frame weight of 3.5kg, only 0.5kg more than the Rallon. As with pretty much every e-bike around, the battery is slung inside the underside of the down tube, and here is protected by a carbon plate attached to the battery carrier. As the down tube, effectively, has a hole cut in the bottom, Orbea has added the two horizontal struts above the motor to boost the frame’s stiffness. Without these, the tubing would need a considerable amount more carbon to maintain the performance characteristics required. The shock is nestled vertically between the frame’s stiffness-boosting struts. Orbea The design aspect of the bike that Orbea battled with was shock position. While early prototypes used a horizontal shock position, similar to that of the Rallon, its desire to have low-standover and piggyback batteries meant that it had to shift to a vertically mounted shock. Brand identity is important, and keeping a cohesive design language across a range is certainly positive, however, Orbea felt the performance advantages of this layout outweighed its branding in this case. Orbea Wild FS suspension The 160mm rear wheel travel is controlled by Orbea’s Eccentric Boost suspension layout, whereby the rear pivot is located around the rear axle and the shock is driven by a swing link. The latest Bosch Performance CX motor impressed. Orbea Orbea has made the Wild FS very progressive through its stroke. This is because it says that a heavier e-bike needs this extra progression to prevent harsh bottom-outs. As such, it’s designed 34 per cent progressiveness into its stroke – substantially more than the 20 per cent found on the Rallon. When it comes to pedalling, there’s 110 to 120 per cent anti-squat, depending on sag and gear choice, while the brake caliper’s relocation from the chain to the seatstay means the rear suspension extends a touch under braking, rather than squatting. Fox’s Float X2 is packaged deep in the frame. Orbea Orbea will offer a number of shocks for the Wild FS. The top two bikes get a choice of either the coil Fox DHX2 or a Float X2 air shock. Given the ability to swap components at the point of purchase (with a charge where applicable), Orbea is offering the option to spec the suspension just how you’d like it. Orbea Wild FS frame and kit details The bikes come with a 625Wh battery, however, Bosch’s batteries also come in 400Wh and 500Wh options. These can be fitted into the frame, or attached to the top of the down tube, and linked into the system to give a wide range of capacities (at extra cost, of course); 500, 625, 900, 1,000, 1,025 and 1,125Wh are all possible, depending on your combinations. The bike comes as standard with a Bosch 625Wh battery. Orbea The down tube has been kept fairly straight all the way to the head tube to help with structural rigidity. As such, there are frame bumpers and an Acros Block Lock 164-degree headset to prevent the fork rotating and damaging the head tube. The motor is protected by a, apparently very strong, polymer injection moulded guard, vented to aid the motor’s temperature regulation. The battery has a carbon protector that integrates nicely with the base of the down tube. Furthermore, the internal cable routing is kept quiet and protected by a plastic sheath inside the down tube. This can be moved out of the way for easy maintenance, however. Internally routed cables are hidden under this sheath. The charge port for the system has a rubber cover, while there’s also a small ridge nearby which protects it further from mud flung off the rear wheel. The battery itself is held in by a lock, the key for which sits neatly in a steerer tube-located holder. All the bikes come with a 160mm crank to maximise pedal clearance. Handily. the battery key is stored on the bike in the steerer tube. The M-LTD, M-TEAM and M10 models also qualify for Orbea’s MyO program. This allows you to select various colours for different areas of the frame, and logos, at purchase. The range of colours and finishes of the various areas means there are over a million individual options for how the bike could look. Orbea doesn’t charge for this service, but you’ll have to wait a few more weeks for delivery. As with most of its bikes, there’s also the option to swap various components at purchase for different versions, dependent on your preference and budget. There’s tough protection for the Bosch motor. Orbea Orbea Wild FS geometry The Fox 36 has the stiffer e-bike chassis.
