Giant ATX 27.5 1 / GE
The ATX by Giant is one of the most popular bikes in the world in the price range up to 500 € and never made a secret of being just a “half mountain bike”. Because the ATX also makes a great figure as a city bike and knows how to assert itself in the urban jungle. But also forest roads and rough dirt roads make the all-rounder thanks to 100mm suspension fork and wide MTB handlebars nothing. The wheels vary from 26 “(ATX 2) to 27.5” – Giant does without the big 29er. The upright frame geometry puts you in a balanced sitting position – efficiently and smoothly. For women, Giant and Liv have created their own subsidiary brand, which offers the Bliss alternative to the men’s version.

The cult mountain bike brand Specialized has not made it completely under the magical 500 € limit, but with 519 € RRP, we wanted to turn a blind eye. The Rockhopper is a legendary entry-level hardtail that has been around for a number of years and has been steadily developed. While the frame with internally routed trains always comes with 29er wheels, the travel of the SR Suntour fork varies from 80 to 100mm depending on the frame height.

General buying tips
Frame: The frames are usually made of aluminium and usually provide mounting options for fenders, racks, stands and bottle holders. The rear triangle is rigid, the geometry rather relaxed and allows a comfortable upright sitting position.
Fork: In this price range you will often find spring forks with steel spring and a travel (travel range of the fork) of 60 – 100mm. Some models feature a lock-out feature that locks the fork so it can not deflect (useful when driving uphill or in the city). For others, the spring bias can be adjusted to adjust the hardness of the fork.
Brakes: In the past, up to 500 euros were still often found on entry-level mountain bikes. Now you can find mainly disc brakes, which are characterized by better braking performance and higher reliability even in bad weather. Rim brakes, however, are lighter and require less maintenance.
Circuit: Derailleurs with triple derailleurs and up to 30 gears are standard here. Often, beginner groups of Shimano are installed, such as the Tourney or Altus. The first truly MTB-specific group is the Acera, which is also found on some models.
