How to Choose a Mountain Bike

Mountain bike development has led to so many radical departures from the basic bicycle design that it can be a challenge just to sort through them. The best way to choose an MTB is to match it to the type of trails you’ll be riding. Long, smooth trails with a mix of climbing and descending call for an XC bike or hardtail, where steep, gnarly descents are better left to full-suspension bikes.

All-Mountain
The all-mountain, or trail bike, is the do-anything suspension MTB. These bikes bikes tend to be lighter than downhill bikes and more durable than cross-country bikes. That means they are versatile enough to handle most types of terrain very well, and you can use one bike for everything from stiff climbs to high-speed descents. Shop All-Mountain Bikes

Cross Country
Lightweight and efficient, cross-country suspension bikes are the sports cars of the mountain bike world. Cross-country bikes are built to give you an uphill advantage over the competition so you cross the finish line first. These stiff, lightweight bikes feature lots of carbon fiber and titanium for the lightest possible weight. Shop Cross Country Full Suspension Mountain Bikes
Hardtails
Until the early ‘90s, all mountain bikes were hardtails. While full suspension bikes offer several advantages, hardtails provide precise handling and instant throttle that few full suspension bikes can match. When you see a collection of bikes for sale, you’ll notice that hardtails offer a price advantage, as well. Shop Hard Trail Bikes
