Mountain bikes: Hit the trails!
Where the road ends, the fun begins for mountain bikers. What began in the 1970s is today the most successful cycling movement in the world – and in many technical areas the engine for the entire bike industry. Mountain bikes guarantee a great deal of fun on almost every route, whether as a robust companion for city and country, an ideal bike to leave everyday life quickly behind, or as pure-bred sports equipment for tours and action on tricky terrain. One differentiates between hardtail mountain bikes (with a suspension fork and no suspension on the rear wheel) and full suspension bikes (with suspension on both the front and rear wheels). Wheel sizes, travel distances, geometries, equipment, weight and price vary based on the exact details of intended use....Continue reading
Mountain bikes for the whole familyp>Mountain bikes, or MTBs for short, are specifically meant for off-road riding. They’re designed to offer robust durability, better performance and comfort on rougher terrain – so features will include a stable frame, terrain tyres and a wide range of gears for this purpose. Because mountain bike gear shifting systems cover an extra-wide range of gears, you can cope with almost every kind of path, from steep mountain trails to winding gravel roads. Nearly all mountain bikes are equipped with disc brakes; which offer superior stopping power, control and safety.
MTBs are split into two main types:
- Full suspension (aka fullys) are, as the name suggests, full-suspension mountain bikes with a front suspension fork and rear shock
- Hardtail models come equipped with a front suspension fork and a fixed rear
Mountain bike models differ greatly from each other in terms of technology, despite sharing several common features. Choosing the right MTB depends on what you’re going to use it for. At Bikester.co.uk we stock a selection of fully and hardtail models across the following expertise levels and disciplines:
- Beginners hardtails and fullys
- Cross country (XC) hardtails and fullys
- Touring and trail hardtails and fullys
- 4X (four cross), pump track, street style and dirt jumping hardtails
- Freeride and downhill fullys
- All mountain and enduro fullys
- Fat bike hardtails
We also offer a wide range of women’s hardtail and full-suspension mountain bikes from the likes of Liv, Ghost and Cube. Although women don’t necessary have to buy a ladies bike these models can provide better comfort, especially during longer rides. These bikes are constructed with tweaked geometry, adapted frames and shorter handlebars which better fit the body of most female riders; as well as female-specific saddle design.
Children’s mountain bikes feature a solid aluminium frame, special MTB tyres and come equipped with all the same essential components as MTB models for adults. Kids mountain bikes offer improved safety and comfort for smaller riders. Many junior bikes are based on mountain bike models, but also come equipped with basic road equipment like lights and mudguards for added versatility and practicality.
We also offer e-fully and e-hardtail mountain bikes from HAIBIKE, ORBEA and many more, for riders looking for a little extra electrical assistance. These e-MTBs help you to explore more, reach further distances or ride your local trails for longer than ever before.
