BEST FOR: Burly descents.

THE TEST: We took the aluminum Range to the ledgy slickrock trails of Sedona, Arizona, and not only did it win over all comers to Norco bikes, it sold us on 650Bs. “I didn’t want to like a new wheel size,” groused one reviewer, “but it is hands-down better than either 26 or 29 for enduro-style riding.” Thanks to a slack 66.5-degree headtube and 6.3 seemingly bottomless inches of travel, it floated over stairstepping drops and, on higher speed descents, flattened chunder like a sledge.

THE VERDICT: It’s a phenomenal deal, especially with a Fox Talas 34 fork and a
Float CTD shock. 31 lbs.
