Trial Mag 44 is out now! Tribal Zine are still onvolved, and after the group test of four top-of-the-range 26” bikes (Koxx Black Sky, Ozonys Cannibal Black Light, Rockman Slate and TMS Evo 3 –see Tribal Zine & Trial Mag), we bring you a new adventure… a group test of four top-of-the-range dual disc 20” bikes, carried out in extreme weather conditions at a spot to the south of Paris. Among the bikes tested are the two new bikes of the moment: the Monty Kamel XXV and the Ozonys Curve, tested for you in a world exclusive! At the time of testing, these bikes were still not on the market, and they have only been available for a few days now. Alongside these two ‘hot potatoes’ are a bike that proved itself again and again in 2008 and has been ‘remastered’ in 2009, the famous Koxx Hydroxx, and a top-of-the-range build from Echo, a bike that we are seeing more and more of in the sections, the Lite. The test is eight pages long and quite comprehensive – it’s the best test we’ve written and even our most demanding readers should enjoy and appreciate it…

PNG - 317 kb In this issue you will also find some an article written by our partner Sergio: a very interesting and comprehensive interview with the man himself… Toni Bou! They talk a bit about bikes; Toni is a big biketrials fan and draws a lot of inspiration from the discipline… “I ride a lot of biketrials and am constantly looking for techniques that I can use on my motorbike. This allows me to see things in a different way and find new ways of negotiating obstacles”. When asked whether he was ever scared before riding a section, Toni replied “yes, of getting a five…” What a hero! The magazine also features a double sided moto/bike poster with a superb photo of Kenny Belaey in New Zealand, and a trials calendar with Dani Comas (photographed riding street in Barcelona by Sergio) as Mr December!
