Full suspension mountain bikes are very high spec, with excellent suspension and shock absorption capabilities. If you’re going to be flying around rocky terrain on a regular basis, or want to invest more in your new cycle, a full suspension kit could be exactly what you need. Also look at dual suspension cycles too.
Many people prefer to get a MTB that suits their style, fashion, gender or age, too. We offer MTBs suitable for men, women, boys and girls, and you can filter your mountain bike search so that you only see those that are designed for your age or gender.
Get a good fit
Choosing a mountain bike that fits you is essential if you want to be able to cycle with comfort and ease. Is it the right height? Can you reach the handlebars safely? Is the frame the correct size for your build and strength?
Some of our retailers let you go into their store to try out the MTB you are interested in. If you are new to cycling or are not sure of the size and style of mountain bike that would suit you best, this is certainly worth considering.
Choose the right brand
There are a number of bicycle manufacturers that create exceptional MTBs. You will want to look at Giant, Trek, Saracen, Genesis, Specialized, Dawes, Diamondback and Raleigh in particular.
If you’re heading out to the countryside with your mountain bike, you need to make sure you have all the safety protection and comfort you can get. Consider getting some gloves, and never, ever skimp on a bike helmet. Glasses and goggles can come in handy and, if you’re really getting into your sport, consider some mountain biking shorts and jerseys, too.
