I will throw out some indy brands and you can check them on my website.
RMU (park/jumping specialty)
Praxis (bomb proof)
Ramp (low cost option)
Viice (New interesting tech)
Majesty (also cutting edge tech)
There is alot of new stuff out there that you should not have to ride what everybody else does, and will be supporting some of the smaller outfits. Good luck with your search.
