MSRP: $3999.99

The new 2009 Mongoose Boot’R builds upon the old EC-D platform and improves upon it in just about every aspect. We’ve reviewed the EC-D previously and impressively almost all of the suggestions we had for it were answered with the new Boot’R. The Boot’R is available in two build options, Boot’R and Boot’R Team. For this review, we take a look at the Boot’R Team which comes with higher quality parts.

The Boot’R offers something that is hard to compete with, affordable performance. At an MSRP price of $4000 the Mongoose Boot’R Team is spec’d impeccably well with components like a SRAM X.O rear derailleur, a Vivid 5.1, RockShox Boxxer Team, and many other high end parts. It is very hard (near impossible) for any manufacturer to build a bike like this at the same price point.

The Boot’R doesn’t just give you a good parts though, it offers a good ride via their Freedrive System. The FreeDrive System allows the Boot’R to pedal great for a DH bike and still take the bigger hits.
