wideopen: the 2016 DMR Trailstar review Jamie Edwards - Tuesday 18 October 2016

DMR Trailstar: “..has the strength, versatility and unerring stability to redefine what you thought was possible when you drop a hardtail MTB into the hands of gravity”

ON TREND: The new DMR Trailstar is bang up to date in terms of a really long top tube, slack steering angle and plus-size tyre compatibility
STEEL YOURSELF: The skinny, low standover top tube and tapered stays give the Trailstar the trademark forgiveness and shock shrugging character of steel even when you’re going full gas
SWAPSIES: The extra-long 650b+ SwopOut dropouts seen here can be swapped for regular through-axle, bolted or QR versions

DMR’s legendarily indestructible steel hardtail has been reborn as a bang-up-to-date, plus-size possible playbike that proves you don’t need a rear shock to have a load of fun on technical trails.
There are no XS or XL sizes, though the L is very long.
The fact the new DMR Trailstar can handle smaller plus-size tyres is great for low pressure, ‘smother everything in flaccid rubber’ fans and adds useful versatility that’s still rare on 650b bikes.
DMR have harnessed the naturally shock shrugging potential of the steel tubing that it still didn’t feel too jarring through our feet and knees even when the fork was hitting full travel.
... a long front centre and you’ve got a very stable, naturally self-centring steering feel that’s just as speed and chaos proof as the frame feel…

Conclusion: If you get the build right, DMR’s revived Trailstar has the strength, versatility and unerring stability to redefine what you thought was possible when you drop a hardtail into the hands of gravity


The original hooligan hardtail could turn its hand to just about anything — dirt jumping, trail riding, you name it — and the new bike is just as versatile, if not more so.

..with the relatively long wheelbase and you have a bike that absolutely rips through corners. It also feels totally composed on steep stuff and has a lively and engaging ride quality. There’s also that twang of acceleration when you exit a turn that you only seem to get from a good quality steel frame.

The Trailstar is such a blast to ride that I regularly forgot I was riding a hardtail — the compliant steel rear end taking the edge off trail chatter.

At £499, the new Trailstar is a lot of bike for the money — you could build an awesome winter bike for just over a grand.

The original was great, but this one is on a whole new level.
