Did you know that for every bike we sell (including this one) we will plant a tree? Yes, that’s correct. By buying a Reid, not only will you be getting an awesome bike at a great price, you’ll be planting a tree in the process, sustaining the environments that we love to ride in! Well done you!


Plus bikes climb like a mountain goat and grab the trail like a vice on the corners and descents for a fast, playful ride. These bikes are the perfect platform for the beginner or intermediate riders looking to really boost their trail-blasting abilities, while promising more advanced riders an agile bike that holds the ground like a DH rig.

The Reid Vice 3.0 is a perfect partner for a session on loose rocky summer trails or a winter mudfest. Plus bikes push you to hold more speed, brake less and go wider on the berms. They also give you the traction to forgive a less-than-perfect line in all conditions.

Plus bikes are the latest progression in Mountain Biking and the Reid Vice 3.0 is our flagship bike – built with all the new features and standards in the new 27+ category.

4 reviews for Vice 3.0

  1. Flow MTB

    This bike is for anyone wanting to ride proper off road trails for the fun of it, or if the trails are tricky and challenging the big tyres will open up possibilities. The Vice is a very capable bike for the dollars.

    Newcomers to the mountain biking are likely to gain the most from a bike with loads of confidence inspiring control, but we also think that if a beginner can benefit, an experienced rider should also.

    The Vice is available in three levels that share the same frame, the 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0. The 3.0 is the only one with a suspension fork and worth the stretch.

  2. Euoan

    The Vice 3.0 is good value considering how it rides – it’s a highly versatile machine for dirt and beyond. Reid has traditionally been a “budget” brand, but this represents for them an in-road into new territory: still good value, but better quality.

  3. Flow

    Considering the last bike I was riding was around four times the price as this one, I was a little sceptical of how I’d enjoy the first ride on the Vice. But there’s something about plus hardtails that promotes hooligan riding, the big volume tyres makes up for it on the trail. Grip is amazing, the ride is comfortable and the control under brakes is excellent.

    Over the years I’ve had plenty of experience with all sorts of bikes in this price range that miss the mark when it comes to proper mountain bike riding, and there is often some compatibility issue. But if you’ve got someone in the design team with good experience that actually rides, you’re off to a good start. The Vice is a solid example of this, it’s a well-rounded bike that so far holds its own on the trail.

  4. Gomez

    This bike packs a passel into its price, in keeping with the philosophy of value. With comfortable contact points and virtuous gears, brakes and tyres, this does ride like a more expensive machine. Yes, it has some heft, but it leaves the weight in your wallet as a result. It also feels quite versatile – it goes offroad, but it’s onroad manners leave it also open to some comfortable bikepacking or light touring.

    For me, it’s biggest problem is not the bike, but it’s kinsfolk. The Vice 2.0 is almost the same machine, (ever so slightly downgraded tyres and mech), but lack the suspension fork. Personally I love the simplicity of big tyres no suspension, and 400 clams is a pile of cash. Still, that’s just me.

    Either way there’s lots to like in the Vice 3.0. For a first excursion into plus bikes Reid have created a bike that works well for the price.
