The Story

To meet Arnaud is to meet a force of nature, someone who has really tapped into the ability to stave off aging.

Whatever the season, you’ll find Arnaud on his local mountain, clocking laps up and down its slopes. On snow or dirt, he’ll race up, take in the view at the summit, before racing down.
Ski touring is what Arnaud knows best, with a lifetime of peaks and couloirs behind him. It’s a demanding winter sport, where thrilling descents have to be earned through lung-burning climbs – a lot like Arnaud’s approach to his mountain biking. There’s the same self-assuredness in his riding, seeing him carve the downhills with comparable confidence.

“Even though I’m pushing 60 many see me as fitter and more driven than ever. I put that down to a constant routine of pushing myself.” As if to emphasize the point, he continues stacking his log pile: “Staying fit is harder, but my riding has helped that. Jumping on this bike is like clipping into my favourite skis. When I ask more of myself, I know that I’m not being held back by my equipment.”

In the press

What are they saying?

The Agonist is an impressively forgiving and supple ride.

The Fox 32 fork feels great on flatter trails and smaller bumps, too.

SEB STOTT - BIKERADAR | UK

Expect an efficient climber with enough chops to handle gnarly descents and ride anywhere the majority of mountain bikers ride.

JASON MITCHEL - FEEDTHEHABBIT | USA

Our favorite new Mountain Bikes: Best Cross-Country bike.

AARON GULLEY - OUTSIDE | USA

It’s got a natural talent for stacking endless miles on the odometer.

TRAVIS ENGEL - BIKEMAG | USA

This lever is made by BMC and is decidedly Swiss with its precise action, unlike the sloppy ones common in the market today.

It worked well and was handy in the fire road climbs. On the descents, the bike was Smooth, stable and predictable. Singletrack rollers were a breeze.

FRANCIS CEBEDO - MTBR | USA

A superb marathon mountain bike

The Agonist is equally as well suited to long rides in the hills as it is to enduring long, tough marathon races.

TOBIAS BREHLER - MOUNTAINBIKE | GERMANY

Great for long rides, this is an inspired choice for those dabbling in racing with guaranteed fun on the descents.
