Each year we get new bikes for our customers to test & hire in our mountain bike rental shop in Morzine, Les Arcs and Tignes. It enables us to provide our customers with the latest mountain bike hire every season.

So this means all our bikes are always for sale, which means that the lucky customers that buy them at a heavily discounted rate are also riding the most up to date bikes.

Many of our customers buy a bike from us every year and sell their previous bike for a very similar amount of money, sometimes more! Its a great way to keep you on a up to date model.

Reserve your 2021 mountain bike now at a massive discount, up to 60% off the recommended retail price!!

We have a wide range of bikes for sale in all sizes from electric to enduro and downhill…

This season we are sticking with our much loved brand Nukeproof, they have excellent feedback and proven race winning history. We have worked with Nukeproof bikes now for 5 years, we love them!

Enduro bikes we have the well known Nukeproof Mega for only 1800€
And for Downhill bikes we have the Nukeproof Dissent for only 2200€

All the bikes come fully serviced with a limited warranty and can be shipped to a destination of your choice in September after our season in Morzine has finished.
