The Best Bikes of 2015-2016

From mountain bikes to sleek electric bikes and everything in between, this is the MEN'S FITNESS guide to riding on two wheels.

Borealis - Borealis Yampa XX1

Borealis is a relative newcomer, but it’s one of the most advanced fat bikes. It may seem counterintuitive, but the Yampa XX1 is a lean fat bike constructed with carbon. They use 190mm centered rear spacing to make space for the largest fat tire and rim setup in the industry—setting a new standard—along with a 2 x 10 drivetrain so you can truck up any hill and avoid spinning out on long flats. Borealis offers the Yampa as a frameset, making it ideal for racers of all shapes and sizes.
