If you want to try a really playful mountain bike, Santa Cruz can offer you what is currently the best 29″ geometry I tried, with a carbon fiber frame, a VPP suspension and an insane look!
The HighTower 3C 2020 is designed for advanced mountain bikers: perfect on rough trails (stone or roots garden), its head angle is slightly less forgiving. On the other hand it makes it relatively playful for a 29er: it’s incredibly fast and easy to engage everywhere. If you’ve never tried a 29er before, this HighTower LT C is perhaps one of the best. 80€/3hours.

Enduro Mountain Bikes are light enough (Kg 14-15) to be easy to carry on your back if you cannot pedal anymore. During the downhill, enjoy the qualities of your mountain bike!
