Wilier 503X XT 1×11 – £1,349 £1,099

Wilier 503X XT 1x11 Alloy Mountain Bike
An XC bike at a good price.
Merlin Cycles

Although it’s only got an aluminium frame, you can be sure this Wilier 503X XT is going to be a rapid XC bike.

It’s got RockShox Reba RL forks with 100mm of travel and a Shimano XT M8000 1x drivetrain.

There are other Wilier hardtail XC bikes for sale with some impressive discounts on Merlin Cycles, but at the time of writing this model had the most sizes in stock.

Trek Procaliber 8 – £1,700 £1,360

Trek Procaliber 8 2019 Mountain Bike
The Procaliber is one of Trek’s best XC bikes.
Evans Cycles

As one of Trek’s most race-ready XC hardtails, the Procaliber is specced with a RockShox Recon fork, SRAM’s 12-speed NX Eagle drivetrain and Shimano’s MT500 hydraulic disc brakes, so you should be able to conquer the toughest climbs with ease.

It’s got an aluminium frame over a carbon one, but that means you’re not losing money to the frame material and having to compromise on spec for a bike worth the same amount.

If you’re just starting out as a beginner on cross country MTB missions or want to get a bit more serious with your XC racing, this has to be a bike to consider.

Kona Hei Hei Trail Carbon – £3,999 £1,999

Kona Hei Hei Carbon cross country mountain bike
At £1,999 the Hei Hei is a bargain.
Merlin Cycles

While we’ll be the first to admit this isn’t the most recent Hei Hei model, and at just shy of £2,000, it isn’t the cheapest bike out there. However, there’s no denying that with 50 per cent off the price tag, it’s tricky to resist if you’re on the hunt for a new XC bike.

It’s specced with Fox suspension front and back, Shimano’s reliable 11-speed SLX drivetrain and a KS LEV Integra seat post which should mean, that while they’re not the latest bit of kit, the bike is going to be a cracking performer none-the-less.

Sensa Livigno Evo Sport – £750 £625

Cheap mountain bikes, Sensa Livigno Evo
This bike is both cheap and in stock – a rare mix these days.
Merlin

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly entry-level mountain bike, you could do a lot worse than this discounted alloy hardtail from Sensa.

The bike is built around a Shimano Deore M6000 10-speed groupset, which is somewhat rare to see on a bike of this price.

You pay a price elsewhere – the Suntour XCR fork isn’t going to have quite the performance of a higher-end option, but this opens up tempting upgrade options down the line.

This is one of the cheapest mountain bikes we’ve found online that has decent spec and good stock levels across all sizes, so it is well worth considering if you’re looking to get started mountain biking.

Cube Aim SL 29 – £599

Cube Aim SL 29 Hardtail Bike
Cheap but certainly cheerful.
Wiggle

As an entry-level MTB, the Cube Aim SL looks to cover a fair number of bases. It’s got 29in wheels, an aluminium frame and a Shimano drivetrain with hydraulic disc brakes.

There are also a decent SR Suntour fork, so if you’re just starting out and want to dabble in the world of mountain biking, you should consider this cheap-as-chips bike.

On-One Bootzipper SX edition – £899

Cheap mountain bikes, On One Bootzipper
The Bootzipper looks like a great bikepacking wagon.
On One

If you’re looking for a simple mountain bike to get started with off-road riding, or want a trouble-free bike for bikepacking adventures, the fully-rigid On-One Bootzipper looks great for £899.

For your money, you get a full SRAM SX groupset and SRAM Level brakes bolted to a steel frameset that is replete with bosses for mounting luggage on.
