Off Road Mountain Bikes (MTB)

Cross Country Trail Enduro Downhill

Mountain Bikes have suspension to smooth the rocks and roots on rough trails. Mountain bikes come in 3 main wheel sizes. 26” wheels are nimble, 29” wheels are fast rolling and 27.5” (also called 650b) wheels are a compromise between the two. MTB wheels are wrapped in knobbly tyres for confident grip on loose terrain.

Hardtail bikes with front suspension forks are great for cross-country and recreation. Full suspension mountain bikes have front and rear travel to ride more challenging trails. Trail bikes are best suited for trail centre loops as they combine climbing efficiency with descending prowess. An enduro full sus MTB or downhill mountain bike offers more capable performance on the descents. A downhill bike is a specialist machine built for stability and performance.

Mountain bikes break down into the following sub categories, and these divisions are based upon the type of suspension and amount of suspension travel.

  • Cross country (XC). Hard tail or 80 to 120mm of travel
  • Trail. 120 to 160mm travel
  • Enduro. 140 to 170mm travel
  • Competition Enduro. 180 to 200mm travel
  • Downhill. 180 to 220mm travel
  • Snow and Sand (but many riders use them all year round on normal tracks)
    • Fat bikes. No suspension just big fat tyres
