Not surprisingly, this aluminum hardtail easily kept up with competitors on climbs. But its standout performance on descents wowed testers even more. Why? Fisher's Genesisters geometry works with a woman's biomechanics, helping us flow effortlessly through tight switchbacks. The four-inch Fox F100 RL front fork can handle almost any terrain, and Shimano's LX/XT group proved a workhorse through high miles and hellish East Coast mud and crud. 26 lbs;

Bonus: No rear shock means less maintenance.

Bummer: It's a bit heavy for a hardtail.
