Mongoose has more bikes than you can shake a stick at, yet do not typically appear on a lot of rider’s radars. There are three core models, which all cost less than $3000. Mongoose utilizes a horst link design with floating shock and have modified their chainstay pivot to reduce brake jack. Their hydroformed alloy frames utilize a combination of internal and external cable routing.
The Teocali is a 160mm enduro bike that runs 27.5 wheels and clears tires up to 2.6. It’s spec’d with Shimano SLX brakes, a SRAM Eagle GX drivetrain, Fox 36/DPS suspension, and sells for $2999.
In the XC bike category, the Mongoose Salvo is the choice. It is available with 29er or 27.5 wheels, with travel of 100mm and 120mm respectively.
The 27.5 bike comes stock with 2.6 tires, while the 29er narrows to 2.35. An Eagle drivetrain is on the Pro model, pictured. Price is $2399.
The Boot’R is an exciting bike we expect to see at bike parks this summer. The build is dialed and price point low, at $2499. The 27.5 wheels are suspended by a RockShox Boxxer and Super Coil Deluxe.
A Zee shifter and derailleur wrap a KMC chain around the Sunrace 10-speed cassette.
Tektro was selected for braking duties. That name might be unfamiliar, yet that is the same company who make TRP, which handle stopping duties for Aaron Gwin and the YT Mob team.
