The 2016 Giant XTC Advanced SL 27.5 1 is race ready; this bike offers razor-sharp handling, fast acceleration, and minimal weight. The medium here weighed in at 22.5 lbs on our scale!
The Surly Dirt Wizard 29er version features an aggressive tread focused on traction and control in loose and varied terrain, with beveled leading edge dual row knobs in the center and well-spaced, siped edge knobs to dig into loose corners. MSRP is $90.
This massive 29er tire is in the same vein as a Maxxis High Roller or Minion. It dwarfs the Nobby Nic by comparison, as can be seen in the photo.
The Surly Dirt Wizard also comes in a 26+ size version...not currently in stock.
The 2016 Pivot Mach 429 Trail (XTR/XT Pro 1x build kit pictured) gets a few changes from the standard Mach 429: this Trail version gets a slacker head angle, more travel, and Boost spacing front and rear. The bike's 116mm of rear suspension travel is still handled by a dw-link design, but the upper link has been redesigned with Pivot’s new mid-travel trail linkage design in a more compact, lighter package, made specifically for trail riding.
Rear end stiffness has been increased, and the 12x148 and 15x110 spacing allows riders to run either 27.5+ wheels or beefed up 29ers if they want without any issues either way. A 120 or 130mm fork is suggested; the 130mm length fork puts the head angle at 67.5°

The Azonic Shoo-In Pedal is a great low profile flat pedal for BMX, mountain, or commuter rides. A sturdy Cr-Mo spindle carries a fiber reinforced nylon body, resulting in a platform that is stiff and able to take a beating. Molded grip pins provide grip and the Shoo-In is available in four color variations that make complimenting the personality of your ride a breeze.
The TLD Camber cycling socks provide thick cushioning on the footbed to reduce shock, impact, and blisters; while the compression arch support eliminates bunching. Plush Merino wool blend provides great moisture wicking and odor control.
The Camber comes in a crew length, perfect for trail riding. Available in sizes S/M or M/L, in a cool variety of colors. MSRP is $18.

The SRAM Gx XG-1150 FULL PIN Cassette uses eleven lightweight, stamped steel cogs held together with 123 high-strength stainless steel pins. The result: a cassette that’s extremely light, durable and equipped with SRAM’s super wide 10-42 gear range that’s a perfect fit for any ride. The open design, similar to SRAM X-DOME™ cassette, aids in mud clearance, giving you cleaner shifting performance and longer component life.

Not only do they look good with their sleek black color option, the Shimano XT brakes now have a revised master cylinder design that gives them an even more low profile look. They've also shaved some weight. The handlebar clamp has shrunk in size as well, freeing up valuable handlebar space.
Geometry, suspension control and components have been incorporated to hold up to heavy trail abuse without hurting your pocketbook.
The 2016 Precept framesets now feature a new tubeset and fit geometry that matches the Process line. Progressive geometry features include a long reach, short stem, long front center, good standover and a compact rear triangle.
