There have been some great deals this week for mountain bikers.
Scott Genius 700 Plus Tuned Full Sus MTB
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products
Any trail, anytime with this stunning Scott Genius.
This full carbon MTB gets Sram Eagle 12 speed, 140mm front/130mm rear of travel and a FOX 34 Float Factory Air fork for the ultimate spec sheet.
The Genius was created to do a bit of everything and the addition of 2.8" 27.5 tyres give a big boost in braking and climbing traction.
The FOX 34 Float Factory Air fork is perfect for trail riding and also keeps the weight down. Likewise, the FOX Nude rear shock is perfect for trail riding, providing loads of grip on rough terrain.
Vitus Sommet CRX FS
This enduro/all mountain bike gets a spec sheet of dreams and performs excellently.
Boasting a full carbon frame, RockShox Pike fork, SRAM X1/XO1 shifting, Mavic Deemax PRO wheelset and a Stealth Dropper Post, this is a seriously good deal.
Everything on the bike would be a good upgrade on most bikes. We particularly love the SRAM X1/XO1 shifting. It's not as flashy as Eagle, but it works perfectly in awful conditions and the option to upgrade is always there.
Troy Lee Designs A2 MIPS Trail Helmet
With increased impact protection and huge air intakes, this makes a great trail lid.
The A2 MIPS was released for the 2017 season, but it still features a whole load of the latest tech.
Safety is the main point of a helmet and the A2 has a lot of features aimed at protecting your noggin.
The aerospace filament-reinforced polycarbonate shell combines with the EPP and EPS to protect against both slow and higher speed crashes.
Giro Montara MIPS Womens
Added protection of MIPS and a bargain price.
This do-it-all helmet has been designed with some great features, brilliant coverage and the added bonus of MIPS protection.
Giro has included goggle integration, with grippers on the rear to keep your vision clear during technical descents. There's nothing worse than descending blind!
When not in use, you can pop your goggles up on the front by moving the visor up. It can then be pushed down when you set off again.
Rachael at off.road.cc was a big fan when she reviewed it, saying "it offers a great combination of protection, coverage and style".
Knipex Basic Tool Case
Mountain Bikers need to be decent home mechanics. Fixing your bike is part of the sport and you might've noticed these cases at bike races, heavily customised and containing perfectly matching tools.
Pro mechanics do a lot of travelling, and when they get to a race, they need their trusted tool to service the riders' bikes. Going to a basic trail centre could involve a few mechanicals. If the centre doesn't have tools, you'll need to do your own repairs to save your day's riding.
A case like this Knipex Basic case is usually the starting point for a well-organised set of tools.
The case is made of hardened plastic, with lockable latches and a carry handle. Inside, the adjustable dividers and removable tool boards with 32 pouches make storing your tools and spare parts really easy.
It's also a great option for limited spaces, as the case can be tucked away neatly and it's a much better option than throwing your tools in a bag.
With an aluminium frame, this should last years, allowing you to build your pro tool kit steadily.
