When it comes to full suspension or hardtail for trail riding the choice isn't as always as simple as it seems. A full suspension bike may be more playful and offer a greater degree of control, but comes at a cost in terms of weight and maintenance time. Whereas a hardtail can be more reliable and lighter, but can loose some of the the trail shredding control associated with a full suspension bike.

As always there is no right or wrong answer, so Senior Technical Editor Tom Marvin reveals the pros and cons for each bike, to give you a better idea on which could be right for you.
