Cross-country meets downhill with the aluminum Cypher. At 26.9 pounds, it’s light enough that climbs are no problem, yet burly enough that one tester claimed she “took steeper lines, bigger drops, scarier roots, and rode right through them all.” The Cypher’s front shock’s five inches of travel combined with quick-stopping Avid disc brakes made technical descents a breeze, while the plush rear suspension kept the ride bob free. 26.9 lbs.
