When you’re bombing down the trail, the only things that matter are performance, safety, and reliability. Skimping on a bike purchase will only cause you headaches down the road. You don’t want people thinking you messed up a line when it was clearly the bike’s fault. To protect your honor (and your body) we’re going to go over some of the best bikes in Denver.
Santa Cruz Bicycles
Santa Cruz Bicycles is based in, well, Santa Cruz. This central California mountain bike manufacturer has been pumping out high-quality bikes since 1994, and they’re not showing any signs of slowing down. Their equipment is made to last, and since rider support is a key component of their mission, they offer a lifetime warranty and support across all models.
Their bikes blend pedalability with a flair for tackling gnarly downhill sections. Santa Cruz helped revolutionize mountain bike engineering, and their lineup offers something for every rider. The Chameleon offers a customizable experience that’s compatible with different wheel sizes, gearing, and component choices. The Heckler is a light and agile e-mountain bike. And the Santa Cruz Bronson is a bona fide all-mountain machine.
Ibis Cycles is headquartered a short 3-minute ride away from Santa Cruz Bicycles, and it is the last company on our list that’s in Santa Cruz, promise. Founded in 1981, Ibis Cycles helped pioneer mountain biking in America. Their lineup of gravel and mountain bikes is a blend of efficiency and performance. They also offer certain models in carbon and aluminum, so their lineup is also a blend of aggressive and affordable.
