Greetings to all and well found.
It was a long time since I had planned to do this video, because it often happens to me
to see wonderful mountain bikes and not to have no idea where they come from. We know that most of them are made in Asia, where the production cost is cheaper, what makes the difference is the brand
and the quality of the product, product that based on the materials used and the specifications
of construction, is subjected to strict controls quality that define its value.
I found a very nice site, through which anyone can give preference
to the most loved MTB brand, based on the tests and experiences.
The particularity of this site is that the ranking is not fixed but varies according to
visitors’ preferences and the online votes meaning that if you give preference
to a certain brand, this brand could scale the rankings in real time,
so it is a list that is subject to time to change The list starts from the 50th position, but for
matters of time I have only taken into considerations the models from the 20th position down, into
more this topic will be distributed on 2 videos, so in this video we will go to
discover the brands from 20th to 11th position In twentieth position we find Lapierre,
the French brand is really beautiful bike. I had the chance at Eurobike
to see them closely and I have to admit that I was impressed for their elegance In nineteenth position we find a brand
towards which I personally have a true and just weak. This is Norco, brand
Canadian like my Rocky. The bike shop closed to my house has a small shop full of Rocky and Norco.
Every time I go into that store I start to produce burr in immoderate manners In the 18th we find KHS
it is an American historical brand, and indeed in the United States the brand is very well known.
The headquarters is now in Taiwan, as well as the entire production. Prices
they are medium-low and the medium-high quality. In the seventeenth we find Fuji
The Japanese brand takes its name from the famous Mount Fuji, symbol of strength and power. After
various finance trubles, the head quarter is moved to Philadelphia in the States
US. In 16th position we find the American Pivot.
I must admit it was one of my goals before choosing Rocky Mountain. MTBs
Pivot are spectacular mountain biking. At Eurobike last year I bet straight
at their booth to try the Switchable carbon, a real war machine. In fifteenth position we find Cube
The German brand is growing exponentially, thanks to good quality bikes
content as they prefer resale online at the classic shops In the fourteenth position Diamondback,
historic American brand, very famous in Italy in the early 2000s. With time however
the brand seems to have focused on the American market also opening up to the world of road bikes In thirteenth position we find Marin, other
American brand. I was able to observe them close to Eurobike and I must admit that
they impressed me with their modern design In twelfth position we find San Gary
Fisher Gary Fisher is one of the founding fathers of
this sport. This man invented the MTB. He currently signs some collections for Trek And in eleventh position we find her,
my beloved Rocky Mountain. Historical Canadian brand famous for the quality of its
bikes, real master peace. Rocky Mountain bikes are tested directly
to Whistler. A little like turning with a Ferrari on the
Imola trail And this is it. In the next video
we will go to discover the MTBs from the 10th to the 1st positions. Bye and see you next time
