Ridding bicycles off the road in rough terrains has turned into a rapidly growing sport. This sport is commonly known as Mountain Biking (MTB). This requires specially designed bicycles capable of enduring rough and irregular terrains. Such bicycles are engineering masterpieces and are designed to maximise performance under such rough terrains. MTB is one of the most exciting sports in the world. There are mainly four competitive modalities in MTB: (1) Cross-country, (2) Trialquest, (3) Down Hill, (4) F our Cross.
Each of this four modalities are very competitive and require a high level of bicycle control and fitness. Here, decision-making is the key as riders must deal with obstacles in rough terrain whilst going at high speeds.
Adrenaline and endorphins experienced by riders add to the riding excitment. But, the stylish nature of most MTB bikes are the ‘cherry on top of the cake’. These are definitly bicycles to be proud of. They are manufactured taking into account both the looks and performance, and these factors (for most MTB riders) are a ‘magic’ combination.
You can also enjoy a non-competitive MTB stroll with friends and family on mountainside or anywhere off-road. Mountain biking is an activity that brings the kind of joy which most of us can only associate with childhood fun. It is that simple! So get involved!
