Now being brought in by Progressive Bikes, the first demo bikes are already in the country, including Chumba favourites like the XCL trail bike, EVO all-mountain/freeride rig and F5 downhill bike.
The new VF2 is a stiff, lightweight all-day trail bike with 5in of travel using a Horst Link. It boasts a carbon swingarm and custom-made hydrofromed, butted top tube and flared, manipulated down tube.
Chumba have also launched two new hardtails – the HX2 29er and HX1 all-mountain bike, both with eccentric bottom brackets so they can be run as singlespeeds. To check out the full range of Chumba bikes, visit www.progressive-bikes.co.uk.
