The 10 Best Men’s Mountain Bikes of 2019

Sharing is caring!

One of the best outdoor activities is mountain biking. You put on a hydration backpack, clip in your shoes, and then power up the hill in front of you. Birds chirp. Trees sway in the wind. To get up to the top though, you need a solid set of wheels. That is why I give you The 10 Best Men’s Mountain Bikes of 2019. With this article in hand, you will be powering up those hills and cruzing down the valleys in no time flat.

Before we get started though, you need to keep these factors in mind when looking at mountain bikes: suspension, the different types, wheel size, frame, gear number, and brake type. It is not everything, but is the vast majority of what people look for in a mountain bike.

There are three types of suspension: rigid, hard tail, and full suspension. When it comes to the former, you absorb everything on the bike. You often see these on street racing bikes and BMX trick bikes. Hard tail bikes only have suspension in the front. They are less expensive than full suspension and better for cross-country and all mountain riders. Full suspension bikes come with suspension in the front and back. It makes the riding a lot easier. They are better for bumpy trails and more expensive as a result.

You can expect to find five different types of mountain bikes: trail, cross-country, fat, all-mountain, and downhill/park.

Trail bikes are not specific to any category, a generalist so to speak, and makes them better for a weekend with friends, fun, and efficiency. Cross-country bikes are for long rides. They emphasize racing. If you want to go competitive, then this is your best shot. A fat bike has a fat tire. They provide a lot of traction, making them great for sand and snow as well as beginners.

On all-mountain bike terrain, you can expect to find monster hills and deep descents. These bikes tend to be lightweight and include more technical features to handle all the rigor these bikes go through. Downhill/park bikes are designed to be taken up a lift. They are big and tough, designed for steep descents.

When looking at wheel size, bigger wheels means you move over more terrain faster. Bigger wheels are harder to get going though. There are three sizes here: 26 inches (66 cm), 27.5 inches (69.9 cm), and 29 inches (73.7 cm). Smaller wheels can accelerate faster.

There are four types of frames: aluminum, steel, carbon, and titanium. If there were a ranking of lightest to heaviest, it would be titanium, carbon, aluminum, and steel. You won’t find any titanium bikes on here because they are quite expensive. Carbon is expensive too and you won’t find many of them in the low price range. Most bikes listed here are aluminum. Only one bike listed here is steel because it is quite heavy.

You also need to consider the gear number. More gears is better for more complex terrain like the all-mountain bikes. If you will be just cruzing around town and only will be heading up and down hills every now and again, then you may not need as many gears.

There are two types of brakes: disc and rim.

Disc brakes come in two versions: hydraulic and cable-activated. With hydraulic brakes, the braking has gradations and self-adjust with the brake pads as they wear down. For cable-activated brakes, you must adjust them by hand. These types of brakes are more consistent, cheaper to replace, work better in more difficult conditions, and reduce hand stress, but the pads are also more difficult to check and hydraulic brakes are more expensive.

With rim brakes, you can see pad wear. I prefer this type just because of that alone. I like to be aware of what is going on with my bike. These brakes also are cheaper. You save money. You do have some disadvantages that include wearing out the rim, lower stopping power, more fingering effort to stop the bike, and not working as well in poorer conditions.

My number one piece of advice when looking at a mountain bike is for you to see it in person. You can get an idea of what is in store for you and test it out. You do not have a feel for a bike unless you can touch it and smell it in person.

Let’s get started.

This is a beast of a bike. You can power up the hills in no time flat with its lightweight frame. Turning the corner, you can maneuver with ease like a pro. You can be coasting down the hill through a breeze with this bike. Because of its low weight, the bike handles like a lucid dream. You can maneuver the bike with ease. There will not be any problems with the handlebars.

The biggest detractor about this bike is its price. I could buy a used car at this bike’s price off Craigslist. I hope to afford this bike one day down the road. At the same time though, you get your money’s worth. Heller delivers on every penny you pay for this monster. The bike gives you a bargain even though it has a carbon frame. For its price, it is just an incredible deal. The carbon frame to price ratio is its biggest appeal. No other bike has the best bang for the buck.

Heller has been around the block for quite a while now, so it knows its bikes. The brand brings a solid bike to the table for you to tear up the hillside with.

From what I have searched online, I have been unable to find any ratings, but I would say that is largely due to the price. Not too many people buy their bike online, but rather in person. You shouldn’t let that deter you though. On Heller’s website though, I saw two reviews. Both were five stars. Each owner loved the bike. It is only two reviews, but the high ratings are reassuring and you can be sure to find highly rated, in depth reviews of this bike elsewhere.

If you want a carbon frame without all the high prices, then this is the way to go. You get a solid bike at a more than reasonable price to boot. If you are a beginner who does not want to pay a premium for the top of the line, then this is the way to go. It is a hard tail, so the bike will be a bit bumpy on the bum but, again, this bike is a carbon frame. That is huge for what you are getting at this price.

Everything about this bike is solid. You are not just getting the carbon frame, but an array of well working components along with it. The makers thought out every part of this bike. This bike works best cross-country. You do not want to be heading downhill too often with this bike. It can be bumpy.

The bike is topped off with a solid seat. It has plenty of padding, so it helps to work against the effects of the hard tail. If you look at the gear and train system of this bike, you will find everything working like a well oiled machine. The manufacturers were meticulous looking after every detail.

Why Should You Consider this Mountain Bike?

The best thing going for this mountain bike is its tires. With bigger wheels on the bike, you gain more traction. If you are a beginner, then this bike will be quite forgiving. You gain a lot of terrain flexibility. The bike won’t give you any trouble on the beach or in the snow.

Another awesome feature about this bike is its price. It does not even crack $500. You save a lot of money. If you are on a tight budget or just want a small bite of mountain biking, then this is worth consideration.

At the same time though, there is a key downside to this bike: the frame. It is rigid, so you feel just about everything the bike goes through. The bumpiness is mitigated by the big tires but still. Also, the frame is steel. That means the bike is quite heavy, at almost 60 lbs. Every time you lift the bike it’s like you are at the weight room working out, but it is tempered by the price. You do get what you pay for at such a reasonable price.

On Amazon, this bike averages 4 out of almost 400 reviews, making it a well-received product but obviously not the most. Many people have bought and used it and it turned out just fine for them. The 4 star rating may not seem high, but Walmart’s customers gave the bike 4.3 stars out of almost 440 reviews, so I will let you be the judge.

  1. Wow! I like this post, I don’t know if I still remember how to ride a bike but I love the BEIOU Carbon Fiber 27.5 and the Mongoose Dolomite Fat tire. I actually like that one a lot. But since you say these are for men, can’t women ride them too?

    1. I appreciate the compliment Rose. I personally prefer the BEIOU Carbon Fiber 27.5″ over the Mongoose Dolomite Fat Tire, but the latter is still a solid bike.

      You asked a good question. Women can also ride these bikes. These bikes, though, are designed for men, but women can ride them just as well.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  2. Alex – I enjoyed your post, nice job in providing so many specific details, pics and benefits for each, I really like that. I found it informative and helpful for researching bikes. I learned a few new things. I like the Vilano Blackjack! Thanks!

    1. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the article Jeff. I always strive for that in each of my articles, detail. It is critical. It is good to know you like the Vilano Blackjack. That mountain bike is quite fine.

  3. Hi Alex,

    I used to love rambling on my mountain bike as a kid! Older now and really been thinking of getting a bike to help stay in shape. I see you have a few options above and so I will be looking further in them.

    With information provided here I can see why you believe they are the 10 best men’s mountain bikes – they really are built to last forever.

    I believe in paying for the top end items because they are made to last much longer. Hmm, I really like the fat wheels one, looks like it could be good particularly dangerous bumps and pot holes in the road.

    Thanks again Alex and now I am off to see the prices. All the best Alex.

    1. I am glad this article brought up fond memories for you Philip. As we get older, it is important to stay in shape. All of these mountain bikes are built to last. You can expect to enjoy them for years to come. When you pay a bit more up front, you experience savings down the road. I am glad to hear you will be checking out some of these mountain bikes more.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  4. Mountain biking looks so fun, I’ve always wanted to do it. But the thing is, my family does not like raw nature as I do, and my girlfriend does not know how to ride a bike, and she doesnt want to learn because she’s scared of falling. The last thing I would do is go out into nature by myself though, I’ve seen the movies, and those experiences on animal planet. 

    If I had to purchase a bike, I’d want it to be fully carbon fiber, that way its hella light so i can carry it with a finger, and its increasingly durable. 

    1. All it takes is a bit of practice in a safe environment and your girlfriend can be mountain biking like a pro in no time flat. You are right about going out alone Ty. It can be dangerous.

      Yes, carbon fiber is the way to go. It’s like carrying a feather.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  5. Thank you for sharing with us this wonderful review on 10 best men’s mountain bikes. You have recommended very great bicycles. I like riding bicycle when I am on holidays and on weekends but most of the bicycles found in my country are not favorable for mountains.

    I will order Diamondback Bicycles Overdrive because I found it suitable to my size and the price is not too high.

    1. I appreciate the compliment on the article Julienne. It is kind of you to say. I am sorry to hear about not being able to find good mountain bikes in your country. It happens.

      I am glad to know you plan to get the Diamondback Overdrive Mountain Bike. It will be a blast to tear up the mountainside with.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  6. Hey nice post on mountain bikes.

    Mind if I ask a question, I notice a lot of the steering handle bars are quite different but they are all mountain bikes? What is the reasoning for some to be quite narrow and some to be quite wide? Is it a comfort thing or is their more to it? I like a few the bikes you have shown just a little bit unsure which to get because I am new to mountain biking. You got any idea which type I should get?

    1. I appreciate the compliment Sam.

      There is no magical formula for bar width. At the end of the day, it comes down to personal preference. From my own research, most people do not recommend going below 780 mm. Bar width does not relate to height. It depends on how you like to ride. If you ride on tight trails, you want a narrower width to avoid getting caught up in trees. If you plan to get airborne a lot, narrower bars work best.

      For riders who plough steep tracks and head fast downhill, wider bars work best. You get more stability and control out of a wider bar from the increased leverage. For a beginner, I would recommend a wider bar. It’s what I recommend for you. I hope this answers your question and alleviates your concerns.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  7. You have done great work in the area of research and not to mention your site looks very great. For those of us who loves cycling, we are for sure getting a great deal of useful information and tips on how to take care of our bikes. That is to say but the least.

    1. I appreciate the compliment Charles. It is nice to hear you enjoy my site and article.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  8. Alex, thanks for your in depth post with all the details for each bike. I’m very fond of my Scott mountain bike I bought many years ago. But things in the biking world have moved on a lot since then with front and back suspension, disc brakes and the rest. Reading your post, I think it is time for an update!

    1. I appreciate the compliment James.

      It is good to hear you are enjoying your mountain bike after all of these years. Times have changed quite a bit since then though. I am glad to hear you plan to get a new one.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  9. Wow! Alex,

    To be honest, I love mountain bikes. And I can say I have learned a lot from this post about your top 10 mountain bikes listed in this article. The truth is that, I didn’t know much about mountain bikes until reading this thorough and well written article.

    I didn’t know about the various types of mountain bikes you have listed here. Such as the trail, cross-country, fat, all-mountain, and even the downhill/park.

    I also didn’t know the various features of these bikes, such as their weight and even the materials used in making them. The ONLY material I’m familiar with are Aluminum and steel. I never knew bikes are made with some useful materials like  titanium and even carbon. I wish I could see a bike made with such a material. I just can’t imagine the weight of such a bike and how fast it will move. 

    In all, I will say thanks so much. This has been a very useful article and I have bookmarked it so that in case I want to buy one of these bikes in the future I will do that through your website.

    Thanks a lot for sharing with us.


    1. I am sure you are not one of the only people who love mountain bikes Stephen.

      There is a lot more to learn about them than meets the eye. There are quite a lot of features to them too. Yes, mountain bikes are also made from titanium and carbon too. Both work quite well.

      I am glad to hear you bookmarked this article. It is kind of you to do.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  10. I like biking but I was not able to go far, however my interest did not fade. I actually have one steel framed, the cheapest one on the market.

    I like bikes and I’m so impressed with the light ones. In this review the lightest is titanium, carbon, aluminum, and steel. When it comes to durability is titanium better than the others?

    I am wondering what kind of bike do the stunts use?

    1. I appreciate the compliment Abagatan. You are right it was a long piece, but I strive to be thorough.

      Titanium is a durable metal for mountain bikes. It is strong and sturdy. Its durability is better than aluminum and steel and is a little better than carbon fiber.

      For stunt or BMX bikes (I assume this is what you refer to stunts), the riders use a chrome – molybdenum steel alloy. It’s lightweight and durable.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  11. Good Day, Alex.

    Mountain Biking is the new age method to use when exploring the mountains. Like you, I am an avid outdoor enthusiast.

    I love how you describe these bikes. The full compliment of specs are a boon for understanding the complexity and detail that modern bikes possess. Your breakdown of frame and brake types, composition,  function and purpose is very detailed and complete.

    I do own a mountain bike but I do most of my outdoor stuff, on my feet.

    Your post has inspired me to bring my bike along, on my next mountain adventure.

    I am vicariously coasting DOWN the mountain as I write these few words to express my approval and satisfaction. I am particularly intrigued by the “fat-tire” bike. I was surprised by its low cost and affordability. My last experience in the snow was on an old-fashioned set of wheels. Struggling to maintain balance it often ended in frustration and failure. However, a good laugh was always had by all.

    Enjoy the outdoors, and thanks for this informative post. I will reread it to retrieve more of its detail.

    Happy trails.


    1. Yes, mountain biking is definitely a new phenomenon for a lot of people. I appreciate the compliment on the detail of my article Paul. The nitty gritty is where people learn the inner workings of their bikes.

      It is good to know this post has inspired you to get outdoors. LOL! It’s not safe to “mountain bike and text” at the same time! A fat tire bike works well in snow and sand, so it has got you covered in Winter and Summer.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!
