Charge’s Cooker 5 turns even the most cratered, loose singletrack into hot buttered rails that’ll have you licking your fingers after every session. Its butted titanium frame acts as an extension of your body and provides a lifetime of dutiful service with a ride that is smoother than a roadie’s legs on race day. It teams up with a plush RockShox Reba fork to float you across the dirt while keeping your traction-happy WTB 27.5-plus tires glued to the trail, culminating in a beautiful display of bicycle physics that may leave you a bit verklempt. But, you better wipe away your tears so you can stick it to the snappy-shifting SRAM X1 11-speed drivetrain that throws you uphill and still has plenty of gears for blistering downhills. And, as your speed approaches demented, you can smoothly scrub the excess rad with a pair of experience-dialed SRAM Guide R brakes, which are no strangers to hairy descents. Your touch points are made human-friendly by Fabric’s well-designed components, so you won’t even have to think about them as your fun meter pins to the red. Have fun. Cooker.
