Hardtail mountain bikes have always presented an unbeatable fun-to-price ratio. Whether you’re looking for a first mountain bike or a second bike, a hardtail is a great platform for learning new skills or mixing up your riding options. Find a great deal on your new bike and the fun ratio will be even better but scouring the internet is a laborious task. Luckily for you, we have done the hard work and hunted down some deals that we think are too good to miss. 

To some, the idea of foregoing rear suspension may seem like an exercise in unnecessary discomfort but there are loads of reasons why you should get a hardtail. Hardtails offer a more simplistic approach to riding. Fewer components and complicated pivots mean bikes are lighter, cheaper and easier to maintain, perfect for grotty winter rides or high mileage. With no energy-sucking suspension bob, hardtails will flatter your climbing prowess and, without the security of rock and root absorption shocks, truly test your descending skills.

Hardtails are available in all shapes and styles from cross-country whippets that eat up miles to hardcore hardtails ready to bomb your local downhill track. When shopping for a new bike it's important to know what to look for so check out our guide on choosing the best hardtail mountain bike for your riding. Budget mountain bikes are more capable and better value than ever, for those looking to mountain bike for less we have also put together a guide of some of the best mountain bikes available for under £1000.

Check out the bikes below for some of the best deals available on hardtail mountain bikes available now. To help you find your perfect bike we have broken the below deals up into riding styles: cross-country, trail and hardcore hardtail.
