These are three top three enduro mountain bikes for 2022. Watch to the end to find out which one wins! A big thanks to our sponsors for helping us make this year's Bike of The Year a reality: MET Helmets, Bluegrass protection and of course, BikePark Wales. The video contains product placement from our sponsors but rest assured our reviews will always remain impartial, backed up by our expert test team. Rob Weaver, our Technical Editor In Chief, has been testing eight of the latest and best enduro MTB models over many months, and has chosen Whyte’s G-180 RS MX, the Nukeproof’s Giga 297 and the Canyon Torque as his top 3. There’s a serious amount of suspension travel on tap for these three. Enduro rigs haven’t quite reached the realms of downhill bike figures, but there’s no doubt some are getting close. Yet, even with all of this suspension, they’ll happily be pedalled along the trail and up the hill, time and time again. What do you think of our winner? Do you think we made the right call? Let us know in the comments!

Any thoughts on Giga 290? Is there big difference between 290 and 297?
Why are all British bikes only single pivot designs?
Great video! I'm not sure about the sizing tho, I'm 182 cm tall or just below 6ft. I can't decide between M or L. Anyone have the same experience?
Lightest 2022 Top Fuel in the Planet
No Santa Cruz? No NOMAD? No Megatower?
ApK54C-Kpl4&t=8m27s 8:27 Pedalling in mid air. How cool.
Well, I am currently a owner of Nukeproof GIGA 290 (Black), and let me tell you, the main pivot flip chip is totally a joke, you can never rotate it by hand.
You say that the Torque shock has more adjustment because its the Factory version, but isn't the Float X2 Performance on the Giga essentially the same as a Float X2 Factory but without the Kashima coating? (therefore having LSC, HSC, LSR and HSR adjustments)
Trek slash 8 for low pricing i would say overall
As we all know ... "fashion over function" .... Antidote CarbonJack wins hands down 😁
where is the Norco Range in this test?
So cool 💪🤘👍❤
Canyon torque and nukeproof giga aren't enduro bikes.
My choice would be....... any of the above! If only I could afford the wearables you guys use lol
Bike prices have gone insane, specially for people living in lower income countries, like me in Portugal. Would probably (and some luck) take me 5 years putting money aside to get one, and by then, they would cost 2x more 😞
Cheers from Portugal
ps - great video and content/information!
Dear Bike Radar,
