Get Cookerin'.

You don't actually need a mountain to go mountain biking. It's easy to get fooled into thinking that hardcore trails, and bikes that cost as much as a car, are essential ingredients for having fun on two wheels, but that's a notion that's pretty easily dispelled by throwing a leg over the Cooker 2. A product of Charge's "bikes are for riders" philosophy, the Cooker 2 is a fun, versatile, and bombproof hardtail that'll tackle your local trails with a grin on its face and plenty of giddyup in its step.

The most affordable bike in the Cooker lineup to boast a terrain-smoothing suspension fork, the Cooker 2 boasts a lightweight and rugged aluminum frame, welded into a shape that's classic, clean, and efficient for easy pedaling and bike-messenger-caliber looks. It's no fixed-gear, though; Charge hooked up a 10-speed Shimano SLX component package for climb-ready gearing, and it outfitted the Cooker 2 with trademark extra-wide 27.5in wheels and tubeless-ready tires (27.5+) that balance the traction and smoothness of fat-bike tires with the fast-rolling nimbleness of standard 27.5s.

The biggest difference between the Cooker 2 and its younger siblings is the Suntour Raidon fork. It takes some of the sting out of rugged trails and high-speed descents, so you don't feel like you're being rattled to death when you're pushing the envelope. Speed's only good if you can stop, though, so Charge built the Cooker 2 with Tektro disc brakes, which provide reliable braking even in wet conditions. It finished the Cooker 2 off with its in-house Spoon saddle and Square lock-on grips and even tossed in alloy pedals so you're good to go right from the box.
