It's good to hear what Matt Lehikoinen has been up to and what he has planned for 2015. It's really good to see Matti Lehikoinen back on the bike. It's really, really, really good to see that hip moto whip at the end of this video on his trail bike. KAPOW! YEAH MATTI!

Hope's new crank drew plenty of attention at last week's launch. We've had it out on a few adventures already, and are ready to provide a more in-depth report on our initial experience - it's the First Ride and it's waiting for you right inside.

After much anticipation, the Trek Slash goes carbon for 2015. The 160mm travel bike underwent a major redesign last year, gaining 27.5-inch wheels, noticeably better pedaling performance, and even more capable geometry. This all-mountain/enduro ripper was just waiting to unleash its fury on the trails at the 2015 Vital MTB Test Sessions.

The holidays are over. People are back at work, back into their routines. Life continues as if nothing ever happened and New Year's resolutions were never made. Click, tag, comment, like, follow all in the name of remembering that one time.

The FEST Series blew our minds in 2014, and one look back at the madness is enough to remind us of why. Check out the best of POV footage from a season of shredding some of the biggest jumps ever built, and start looking forward to this circus going even bigger in 2015.

We were first introduced to Kali's new Maya helmet last year, and now they've taken it to production. Sporting multi-density foam and loaded with features, at $100 MSRP the Maya is definitely worthy of any trail/enduro helmet shopper's shortlist. More information inside!

The short travel, slacked out 29er is set to take the mountain bike world by storm in the coming years. We take a good look at Banshee's latest model, the Phantom, which offers an intriguing combination of brawn and efficiency, yielding surprising results on the trail.
