You can find a detailed guide to mountain bike frame sizes and how to measure a mountain bike frame here. Presenting the On-One Bootzipper, with it’s smooth steel frame and rigid fork offers us a throwback to the bikes we loved before suspension, fully updated with all the features you need for bike packing or just biking to work.

With no deposit needed, it’s a great way to start your adventures off-road. An Adventure bike at heart but really a bike that will work anywhere, The Bootzipper features a steel frameset that offers unrivalled comfort on long bike tours but is also comfortable carrying panniers on your commute. 2 bottle cages and fork bag mounts allow you to maximise storage, while tyre clearance up to 2.4 means it can easily be ridden on mellower cross country trails too. Cairn Gorm, meaning Blue or Green Hill in Gaelic, is the sixth highest mountain in Britain, and gives its name to the whole range of mountains in the area.

Look out for the Glas Tulaichean Uphill Race in June, one of only two races up a Munro in Scotland for hill runners. On the very edges of the west side of the Park, near Newtonmore and Kingussie lies the rolling landscape that makes up the Monadh Liath range. The four Munros of Carn Dearg , A’Chailleach , Geal Charn and Carn Sgulain make up Monadh Liath, and are designated as a Special Area of Conservation.

A large section on the north-western slopes of the mountain has been developed for downhill skiing, in Coire Cas and Coire na Ciste. In 2001 a funicular railway was constructed to provide access through Coire Cas to the Ptarmigan building 150m below the summit of Cairn Gorm, making it one of the easiest mountains to get to the top of, in the UK. Suspension – Hardtail v full suspension v no suspension – it’s one of the biggest questions we encounter. If you’ll be tackling technical trails, a full suspension will provide the highest levels of performance. More premium set-ups often combine a wide range with just 1 gear at the front, making it easier to shift quickly through while focusing on trail riding.

Lift access to get the best snow then skins to keep getting it. We love backcountry skiing and spend every winter finding the best adventures for our guests. The Alps, Japan and the high Arctic are where you will find us. The Lairig Ghru is the best-known mountain pass in Scotland, climbing to an altitude of 835 metres and crossing through the Central Cairngorms, through some of the wildest country; it’s a classic walk taking you from Speyside to Deeside. From the south, the Lairig Ghru can be approached from Braemar through Glen Lui, or Glen Dee, and from Blair Atholl through Glen Tilt.

In Europe, professionals have been way behind the curve in offering structured avalanche education when compared to North America.

All our guides live and breath alpine climbing no matter your aspirations we are here to help. Cairn Toul is the third highest Munro in the Cairngorms National Park, the fourth in Scotland and is the second highest point in the western massif of the Cairngorms.
