Check Out: 20 New Hardtails for 2021

Feb 10, 2021
by Daniel Sapp  



There are a ton of great hardtails on the market right now, including several that have made a debut since we did our last hardtail checkout. Here are a few that we've noticed.





Spot Rocker



Features

• 29" or 27.5"+
• Full carbon frame
• 67-deg HTA 75.5 STA
• 12-speed or Gates drive SS
• Sizing: S, M, L, XL
• Available as a complete bike or frame only
• From $3,299 (Complete)
More Information


bigquotesThe Rocker hardtail takes Spot back to its roots and is designed for "fast and light XC hot laps" or "long adventures deep into the mountains". There's a standard geared spec of this bike, but the one that caught our eye was the singlespeed that comes as stock with a limited edition red Gates carbon belt drive. The bike is also modular so it can be switched between the two setups as the rider desires.




BMC Twostroke

BMC Twostroke


Features

• 29" wheels
• Carbon and aluminum options
• 67-deg HTA, 425mm chainstays
• 75-deg STA
• Sizing: S, M, L, XL
• Carbon frame = 1037g
• From $1,999 USD
More Information


bigquotesThe tubes of the carbon Twostroke were designed with comfort in mind – the thin seat stays and the D-shaped seat tube are meant to provide extra compliance in rough terrain. None of the complete models come with a dropper post, but there is a shim that makes it possible to run a round 27.2mm seatpost. Claimed weight for a size medium carbon frame is 1037 grams. Along with the four carbon models, BMC also introduced two aluminum models that both come in well under $2,000. Given the rapid growth of high school XC racing in the US, these could be good options for newcomers to the sport.Mike Kazimer




Kona Honzo ESD

Kona Honzo


Features

• 29" wheels
• Chromoly steel frame
• 63-deg HTA w/150mm fork, 417-432mm CS
• 77.5-deg STA
• Sizing: S, M, L, XL
• 490mm reach
• $2,699 USD complete
More Information


bigquotesIf you're hardtail aficionado who's lucky enough to live somewhere with easy access to steep trails, the Honzo ESD might be the ticket. The standard-issue Honzo is going to be the way to go for riders looking for more of an all-rounder, something that's more manageable and engaging on mellower terrain.Mike Kazimer




Merida Big Trail



Features

• 29"
• Aluminum frame
• 65.5-deg HTA
• 75.5-deg STA
• Sizing: S, M, L, XL
• 435mm chainstays
• From £800 (€849) to £1,500 (€1,599)
More Information


bigquotesMerida is well aware that hardtails are often the bike of choice for those on a budget and have done a good job bringing together a solid package for a new rider. The whole range makes use of features you might expect to see on more expensive bikes including tubeless ready rims, Boost front and rear and internal cable routing. There are even mounts for bike packing and a kickstand for added versatility.




Mondraker Podium

Mondraker Podium

2021 Mondraker Podium

• [L=https://www.pinkbike.com/news/lightest-production-hardtail-ever-2021-mondraker-podium.htmlMore Information[/L]


bigquotesA longer and more fiercely fought battle than the number of teeth on your cassette is the weight of your frame. Cross-country hardtails are at the forefront of the battle and over the past few years with the launch of the Unno Aora, Specialized Epic, and now the new Mondraker Podium, that weight number has gotten steadily smaller. The 2021 Mondraker Podium comes in at a claimed 775g for a size M, undercutting those bikes by roughly half a packet of your favorite Walkers crisps and makes it an option for the rider looking for one of the lightest bikes available.




Orange Crush MX



Features

• 27.5" / 29" MX wheel size
• Aluminum frame
• 64.5-deg HTA with 140mm fork

The 140mm Crush MX is available now in multiple different builds. The 6061 custom-butted aluminum frame sports a 64.5° head tube angle, a reduced offset fork, 75.5° seat tube, 430mm chainstays, and a reach of 480mm for a size large.

The frame features cast 148 x 12mm dropouts and external brake routing. There are top tube storage mounts on the underside of the tube, something we're seeing more and more on all bikes and a great option for carrying spares, a tube or even strapping on an enduro banana for the longer rides. The whole frame is electroplated with an anti-corrosion coating, meaning it should last for years to come, even in the wettest of UK winters.

The C09 isn't just your standard hardtail design as it comes with a few nifty features to separate it from similar offerings. There's cable routing through the headset and a spare derailleur hanger in the down tube. Additionally, the frame sports an integrated chain guide. The head angle sits at 67-degrees and the reach ranges from 425 to 500mm, depending on size.

It can fit up to a 38t chainring and is built to accommodate forks ranging from rigid to 140mm travel.




Farr Twin-T



Features

• 29" Wheels
• 4130 Chromoly frame
• 69-degree HTA
• 74-degree STA
• Sizing: S, M, L
• Designed around a 100-120mm fork
• $895 USD (frame only)
More Information


bigquotesAustralian brand Farr set out their stall as soon as you hear about them. This isn't a brand that's invested in tackling the techiest terrain but instead about broadening horizons and making those epic adventures easier, faster, and more enjoyable. Farr wants to make it clear that this isn't a trail bike and while some of the angles head that way, it has stuck to fairly conservative reach and angles to ensure versatility. It currently straddles the line between MTB and gravel geo which points to its touring ambitions with a more playful edge. For Farr, the inspiration came from two places - firstly from old-school MTB and BMX bikes. Back in the day frame designs were a lot less uniform than they are now and Farr wanted to hark back to that era with this bike.




Huhn Cycles La Fleche



Features

• 27.5" Wheels
• Steel frame (Reynolds 853/ 316L)
• 64-degree HTA
• 72-degree STA
• Sizing: Custom
• Designed around a 130mm fork
• €2,400 (custom geo plus 2 color paint)
More Information


bigquotesRalf Holleis and his Huhn Cycles brand shot to prominence last year when he built his 3D printed Moorhuhn frames for the European Bike Challenge. Using additive manufacturing, he connected steel (and later titanium) tubes with 3-D printed lugs to create full-suspension frames with silhouettes simply not possible with traditional tubes-joined-to-tubes construction. His work picked up plenty of fans and one of them has now commissioned him to design a custom hardtail that combines additive manufacturing with traditional bike building methods. The La Fleche (The Arrow), is a short travel, hardcore hardtail that is designed for trails, pumptracks and bike park riding - we'd call it hardcountry or downcore but we can't decide which portmanteau is more painful so we'll stick with the wordier description for now.




Fezzari Solitude



Features

• 27.5" wheels
• Carbon frame
• 68-degree HTA
• 74.5-degree STA
• Sizing: S, M, L, XL
• 100-140mm fork compatible
• $1,999 (frame only), $2,499 (complete)
More Information


bigquotesThe Solitude uses what Fezzari calls its Monoform technology, which the company had previously only used for its carbon road bikes. While most carbon bikes are made of two molded pieces that are then bonded together, Monoform technology uses a single mold to eliminate bonding and therefore reduce weight without reducing strength. This XC race machine frame weighs less than 1000 grams putting it firmly in that category and its geometry is in keeping with current World Cup XC trends.





Want to see even more hardtail content? Don't worry, it's on the way - a whole bunch of value priced hardtail reviews are in the works as part of the next Pinkbike Field Test. And yes, they'll all be hucked to flat.

 The best part about belt drives is how when it eventually breaks on a ride you get to hike, and hiking is nice sometimes.
  • 40 6
 I think a lot of people either dont carry a chain tool or spare link, or wouldn't know how to repair a chain anyway so they get to enjoy hiking also.
  • 82 0
 Spot uses Stan Crest rims in most builds, so those will let you down long before the belt breaks.
  • 90 2
 @txclg: and the Neo hubs will let you down before the Crest rims do, so it's like a double layer of protection.

"Aren't you worried about your belt breaking in the middle of nowhere?"

"Nope. *pats wheels* got these Neo hubs and Crest rims."
  • 5 0
 @txclg: dang, they don't have Neo hubs. There goes my joke.

 @mrgonzo: I'm still looking for the holy grail multi tool with a chain breaker **and** quick link pliers. Pliers alone don't cut it. I guess I could just go with a tiny chain breaker...
  • 4 0
 @bikeybikeybikebike: the Topeak Mini PT30 might be what you're looking for. Chain tool, quick link splitting tool, even the little hook to hold it all in place... It's a great little setup.
  • 11 1
 how many belt drives did you snapped? I never snapped belt drive however snapped chain multiple times
  • 1 1
 @nickmalysh: The belt doesn't necessarily break, but the sprockets. A colleague of mine broke his in half, on a Gates Carbon Drive commuter bike. And it feels like constantly dragging brakes.
  • 7 2
 I’ve had the pleasure of hiking many times after breaking my derailleur and twisting up the chain. Also, as far as I have seen belt drives are extremely durable as long as they are not over tightened.
  • 4 0
 @bikeybikeybikebike: I found a set of tire levers that double as a chain breaker (quick-link type). They scissor when joined properly. I still carry a multi-tool to pop a link out if I have to.
  • 1 0
 @mrgonzo: yea, a lot of ppl do that until it breaks the first time then they buy all the spares
  • 7 1
 @jzPV: hmmm, sounds like an incorrectly tensioned belt or incorrect drive-line. After riding both 1st & 2nd gen carbon drive systems, I've never had a belt, ring or cog fail.
  • 10 3
 The people who hate on belt drives tend to be the people who have never owned them and/or don't know how to set them up.
  • 3 1
 @mitch7mtb: totally agree, actually i do not even imagine how u can mess with set up? Not to over tension? But again majority of the frames have tiny little bolts to adjust tension
  • 3 0
 @mrgonzo: I don't carry any tools for exactly that reason.

 @mikeincc: breaking a quick link is easy, a shoe lace does it but removing a broken link is a job for a chain Breaker.

 @mitch7mtb: people think that steel is unbreakable and solution for everything.
Probably they don't know that even in cars timing chain breaks. Look how big they are comparing to bicycle. They are even submerged in oil and have no contact with mud, snow, salt and dust. And they forget that cars has belt too. Made from the same material as gates and nobody clean it after every ride but still works after 150k km
  • 2 0
 @CleanZine @bikeybikeybikeybikey: I carry a spare sturdy shoe lace to split the quick link - wrap it round the pins & squeeze them together.

 @landscapeben: one gates snapped the other lost all its Teeth. Its on my commuter bike and its great for maintanace. But you definitely pay the price for being lazy with washing (I mean that was the selling point wasn't it?). And don't dare to run a flat its a nightmare to fix

 I know nothing about these belt drives on bikes but on an engine a rubber timing belt vs. a timing chain usually favours the chain in terms of longevity

 @OlSkoolJake: Me too, I like them generally and I hear great things but that aesthetic is just wrong for me, likewise I can't stand it when the seat stays join the seat tube above or beneath the top tube like the above Pipedream Sirius or the Marin El Roy. For me, i don't think I've ever seen a better looking hardtail than the Huhn La Fleche, but I'd be strapping on a 160mm up front before going riding. 140mm... ppppbbbfff Rolleyes

 If it wasn't steel, I just skipped over it. Anyone else?

flag HerbertZ (Feb 10, 2021 at 21:41) (Below Threshold)
 I did the opposite. While steel's strength means small and nice-looking tubes, aluminium has a higher strength-to -weight ratio meaning aluminium bikes are always lighter. I have yet to notice any difference in ride quality between the metals.
  • 3 0
 Though this Gonzo has style and is made out of steel, at this price, it's certainly a steal...
  • 2 0
 @SkullsRoad: I thought the opposite, cool to see how diverse 8 "tubes" (more or less whether it's steel, alloy, ti or carbon) put together can look.
  • 6 7
 @HerbertZ: Yes!! I skip over the steel stuff too. Why is everyone so stoked on steel hardtails. They weigh more and are more expensive, right? But it’s fun to say “steel is real”, and act like you ride so hard that an aluminum frame couldn’t handle you. I want to see more aggressive hardtails in aluminum!
  • 4 0
 @HerbertZ: This is interesting as they can feel completely different. Are you a particularly small or light person?
I'm thinking you are less likely to be feeling the flex and damping of the steel if you''re on the lighter side. There is a little test I like, put your hand on the frame and then hit it with a rubber mallet, or the handle of a screwdriver and feel the vibations. Compared with alu, steel should feel much less vibration.

 Tbh I have had both aluminium and steel hardtails and I can honestly say I like aluminium better they just feel more solid @Davy-Gravy:

 @Davy-Gravy: Well most of hardtail riders like the ride feel of steel. but often its not down to material how comfy or harsh it is but how its made. tbh alloy is good but i like steel and carbon more. with my steel bike i never had worrys crashing. also rides alot different then my carbon bike.

 I had a fair bit of trail time on the CrMo Middlechild last season. I’m not a hard tail guy, but I was impressed with what I could ride around Nelson, without feeling beat up.

 Steve from Hardtail Party has ridden and reviewed tons of hardtails (in Sedona no less) and it sounds like the RSD Middlechild is his favorite. He's got a great, niche Youtube channel if anyone's interested in some well done and thorough hardtail reviews.

 I ride the aluminum one with a 120ml fork and 29'' tires. Makes a hysterically fun "downcountry" hard tail (I'm 6'3'')

 I've wondered on this and other bikes, how much of a PITA are sliding dropouts? Do they stay in place well? Get misaligned?
  • 7 0
 @shredddr: In years, mine never moved. Just needs to be torqued to specs.

 @shredddr: works great on this bike. I’m 200lbs and mine is setup singlespeed. Doesn’t move, doesn’t creak.

 The middle child is intriguing. I rode the Pipedream Moxie for about a year and I enjoyed it and put it through hell, but something about the overcompensation for the super slack front end and reach by jacking the seat angle up never really made this that comfy. Middle child seems like they didn't go too far in either direction.
  • 4 0
 @shredddr: they aren't if they are good ones. My hardtail uses Paragon Machine Works dropouts (looks like the South African bike does too) and they are awesome. Also extremely versatile since you can use different dropouts on the same frame depending on your needs wrt drivetrain, rear axle and brakes...provided (of course) that the frame itself allows it. In my case, lots of riding on thin steel stays meant that I couldn't fit thru axle 142 dropouts because the frame alignment is now 5mm off vertically.

 @rowdyhonzo: I bought my 2018 Alu Chameleon partly because of his review. I made a "few" changes to it to address many of the things he talked about. I watch him weekly to see what is going on in the HT world. Would love to get out and ride with him on his local trails some day.
  • 1 0
 @shredddr: The SC dropouts on my Chameleon have been great. They aren't exactly the same as true horizontal drop outs, but once I had them set (and loctited) they haven't shifted, and I beat the hell out of that bike.

 @rowdyhonzo: Thank for the kind words and for watching the channel. I do love the middle child. I ride a ti middle child, it's one of my all-time favorite hardtails. It's a bit lighter and zippier than the steel edition, but the steel model is no slouch either.

They warrantied it no questions and had a credit to a new frame within 24hr's. I now have a Doctahawk. Chromag is amazing, I'd like to see a Kona Honzo handle the abuse.

 @BoneDog: Well don't crack that one - warranty on Canadian welded frames isn't quite so "trouble free" as in we will fix it but you have to pay for paint. sick deal, especially on a $1200 hardtail frame. Between a buddy and I we cracked 2 Taiwan frames and a Canadian in 2 years - and I know many other people. And im talking top tube/head tube FULL crack. But don't tell anyone, Chromag is "the best"

I was hard into the Chromag Cult, riding a Stif Morf now - made me realize chromag aren't even close to the best. Hozo ESD and anything from RSD would be my choice if I was getting a new stiff whip. Chromag should have just stuck to frames and bars.

 Indeed a fun big wheeled bike, also much ahead of its time.I used to love mine.

But the truth is, once you ride a steel/cromoly hardtail, you wonder why the industry is still producing and selling aluminium hardtails. They are harsh and hard to compate with the dampness and comfort of steel.
  • 1 0
 Agreed that steel rides nice, but after two Chromags, an All City, and a Honzo I’m pretty happy with the ride of the Paradox. Tire pressure has become my go to factor - if I’m lazy about checking or overfill it’ll be an off ride.

That said, looking to get another steel hardtail to add to the fleet this summer! What do you recommend @holydirt?

 I'd like a fast xc hardtail and a burly number (I have a Nukeproof Scout currently which is semi burly with 27.5 tyres and a 140 fork - not at all xc but not full on nuts to the wall burl either).

But that Fezzari is gorgeous to my mind.
  • 2 0
 Can only recommend the MiddleChild, having ridden it a few times (swap with a pal). It's right in that sweet spot of burly but rideable anywhere. Manuals and wheelies super easily too, great balance front to rear.
  • 1 0
 Same. I have an Identiti AKA built up with a 150mm Diamond, big brakes, and WTB tough casing tires. But all these steel bikes and even some of the svelte "xc" (can hardtails be downcountry?) have me intrigued.

 I got an esker japhy 2 months ago. It's 120mm, 66 head tube angle. Great all rounder. The 2k build is surprisingly decent. A lot better than I expected from looking at the specs, to be honest. I didn’t even swap the grips or saddle, which I fully expected to. I love it, very pleased, would recommend.
  • 7 2
 For the price of a mediocre full boing you can build a very well specced hardtail, which I think is probably good enough for most riding done without uplifts. even then, although it does get a bit punishing on reds upwards it is still doable and more importantly fun
  • 5 0
 The humble HT ain't dead! The past year (15months) I've been on numerous group rides with my trusty Honzo, and out of the 8th or 9th group ride, I only rode with one dude that was riding a Stylus. Everyone else (new or recurring members) all ride a new low end fully or a slightly older fully with top shelf componentry. Kudos to all the people who still shred the HT
  • 4 0
 Love the Honzo. The Farr should expect a cease and desist from SE Bikes any day now. In the spate of hardtails you guys have been featuring lately, you've been missing out on Turner. Dave has remodeled his whole business around Ti hardtails -- gravel, cyclocross and a trail 29er. They're pretty sexy.

 Ohh this is just perfect article to read through, I start thinking about some downcountry bike and HT looks like perfect option for flow trails with ups and downs;

Half of the biles tho here weight as FS, which is kinda scary since the main two benefits of HT - weight and price (comparing to similar level model of the FS)
  • 1 0
 stiffness and simplicity are the two main reasons. Weight is not as important as people think, but no flex when you mash the pedals on a climb...priceless! And no maintenance on the back half is so nice. I also run a coil fork on mine and it is SS, so it is rinse, lube, repeat...with the occasional tire check.
  • 1 0
 @SprSonik: my gj bike weights 11 kg or so, enduro 15kg - difference is sufficient to notice;

Honestly i would not consider buying 15 kg hardtail for local mellow trails as a n+1 bike;

Totally agree on maintaining simplicity, but when we talk about n+1 u still do shit ton of maintenance no matter what
  • 3 0
 Some good stuff here but out of all of them I'd build up a Farr as a bike, not enduro or trail or whatever but as a bike to ride around on, to work, pub, urban cruising, some mtb trails, just, ya know, riding.
  • 2 0
 It def. looks like it wants to be a pub bike. I am imagining a 27.5 rear and a 150mm fork, though. There's some pretty good staircases between me and my pubs and I feel a mullet will get me there and back with a little more style.

 Anxiously awaiting the long promised PB affordable hardtail field test. I’m guessing that many of the bikes mentioned in the comments here as “missing” or “overlooked” will show up there.

Also, kudos on featuring “value” bikes for that test. I think those are the bikes that often get overlooked and overshadowed by the latest and most expensive full suspension rides, and yet they are the ones that more people will actually be riding on the trails. It’ll also be interesting to see how much variety there is between hardtails in this budget range, and how much technology and build quality has trickled down from higher end bikes over the years.

 Serious question here,
Looking to build a mildly aggro hard tail, and wondering if you guys have any suggestions.
-27.5, 29 and MX compatible. I’m not sure why this isn’t possible with a set of modular dropouts.
-Adjustable chainstay length (see above)
- Steel frame
-Modular dropouts to accommodate 142, 148, and 150mm hub spacing
-Threaded BB
-64-65 degree HA (ability to run an angleset would be great)
-75-78 degree SA
-450ish reach in medium
-130-150mm fork
-Enduro banananana compatibility
-Sloping top tube that matches the seat stay angle, Love the look of the RSD
-$1000 Canuckistan dollars

 Sirius S5 from Pipedream nearly fits that, other than the Sloping top tube and 120 fork. @SmithCreekCycles out of West Kelowna has a bunch if you're interested.

 @survivalofthefattest: I’ll look it up right away, Thanks for the heads up.

 Wow, sooo many nice looking bikes . I personally think hardtails improve ones BASIC riding skills more than a full suspension bike , at least initially . They are unforgiving in ways that get glossed over on a full suspension bike . It's true that you cannot do really extreme riding to the extent that you can on a full suspension , but to learn basic skills on a hard tail and THEN graduate to a full suspension might be a good thing. As i have said before , i had an eighties MTB with NO suspension , back or front and still to this day i had more fun on that beast than any other bike i have ridden.

 Can someone explain all the hype about hardtails with steel frames? I would like to see more aggressive hardtails in aluminum and see the prices come down a bit. What am I missing here?
  • 2 2
 If you've never tried both I understand the question but the steel feel is genuinely much better than aluminium - way less harsh!
  • 2 0
 It’s been around 25 years since I last rode a steel hardtail (a Japanese built Bridgestone MB3, which used lugs instead of welds), but when it was stolen, I went to an aluminum Cannondale hardtail and immediately noticed a difference in stiffness and harsher ride. Yes, the fat tubed Cannondale was considerably lighter and racier, but the steel Bridgestone was smoother and more pleasant on long days in the saddle.

It’s funny how steel hardtails have gone up in price though. Back then, there were a few high end steel bikes (Ritcheys, Offroad Toads, Brodies, Rocky Mountain Team Editions, etc), but you most often saw steel in budget builds.

My brother owned a Dean HT with a frame made of boron carbide and aluminum. It was the same metal used for armoured Apache helicopter cockpits and the stabilizing fins of nuclear missiles. The frame weighed around 3 lbs, but was so insanely stiff that I felt like my teeth were coming loose every time I went downhill fast. I kinda loved and hated it at the same time.

Sorry for the long “Grampa Simpson” rant. For some reason, some PB articles just seem to get the nostalgia going.
  • 1 0
 @sourmix: Thanks! Yeah I would love to try a steel hardtail and a similar aluminum one to compare the feel. It’s just hard for me to justify 2 or 3 k on a hardtail that weighs as much as some of these steel hardtails do. Until I can afford having multiple bikes of course.

 So glad to see the abundance of steel hard tails. Last year I bought an All City steel hardtail, the Electric Queen. I shopped around quite a bit and finally was able to pick this one up. I forgot how much fun a hardtail can be. She climbs like a goat and rips when you send it.

 how much do some of these aggressive hardtails weigh.....if its not around 11kg or lighter im not interested. those super slack hardtails look weird to me. im not knocking anyones purchase but i love more traditional geo for a light and super fast responsive bike for singletrack and steep climbing but if your riding rough terrain why wouldnt you go full suspension? no matter how good an aggressive hardtail is its no match against a full susser especially when half of these steel bikes probably weigh more than a carbon full susser (or alu even).
  • 4 0
 I've ridden hardtail in the worst of UK winter when the slop abounds, I think for the simplicity of maintenance and how good they climb and the relatively low weight, the newer slacker bikes are a good option.
It's true the 'good' end of the hardtail market is probably in line price-wise with the basic end of the full-sus market, but brands like Vitus, Ribble, Sonder, and Marin are perhaps even better value for aggressive hardtail bikes.
I also think to get down to the 12-13kg weight of most new 29er hardtails (Vitus is about 13kg, Sonder 12kg) you have to spend a lot more on a full-sus.
I was really surprised at the versatility of modern hardtails, you can ride a lot of pretty hard trails on them but also take them to a pump track or BMX track and not feel like you've got too much bike.
  • 1 0
 @Steventux: I ride a hardtail as well just a nice light 2019 carbon orbea Alma 29er that cost less than most of these and weighs sooo much less. Plus it's gonna be way more agile than these fat old things. You can get a good full Susser for the cost of some of these steel hardtails too.
