Downhill bike

Downhill bike Racing a downhill bike at Horseshoe Valley In Ontario A downhill bike (also known as a downhill mountain bike ) is a full suspension bicycle designed for downhill cycling on particularly steep, rocky trails. Unlike a typical mountain bike, durability and stability are the most important design features, compared to lighter, more versatile cross-country bikes. Downhill bikes are primarily intended for high speed descent, and downhill riders will usually push, or shuttle via chairlifts or motorized vehicles, to the trailhead. [ 1 ] Downhill bikes are typically made of aluminum or steel, will have 7–10 inches (178–254 mm) of rear suspension travel, and be designed around ...

Buyer’s guide to suspension forks Buyer’s guide to suspension forks Jonathan Gawler Mountain bike suspension forks vary massively when it comes to travel, shock damping ability, stiffness and weight – and that’s before we even get onto price, which can run into hundreds or even thousands of pounds. That means it’s important to know what to look for when buying a new fork. What to think about when buying a fork The first question is what travel will work best for you.
