Cycling has always been a crowd puller since its advent and mountain biking is no small art which lacks popularity. This immensely popular adventure sport deals with riders going off the road on their bikes and into the wid. The obstacles are many as per the different categories of mountain biking.
Cross country gives a complete feel of the wild terrain whereas all mountains is mainly about doing pulling of steep rides both up and down. This can be done anywhere on road as well as on specially created tracks with ramps and other equipment for best display of skills. Mostly bikers tend to prefer off road trials and love to rough out their bikes in the wild.
They take upon many risks and carry extra supplies in their back packs. Tools for trailside repair jobs and emergency first aid kits for injuries beyond the region of available help is also essential for mountain biking.
The bikes themselves are customized to deal with the problems of mountain biking. The suspensions are stronger in order to dampen and support the heavier more sturdy framework of the bike which I also another necessity for mountain bikes. The wheels are stronger along with thicker tires for that extra grip on the loose terrain. The bikers also need to be in a more dynamic position then when cycling.
In mountain biking handling is very essential and so the biker needs to be always ready for action along the course and look out for rocks and loose soil all along the way. Shock absorption by the forks as well as the suspension can be simple springs to hydraulics to make sure that the bike doesn’t get beat up long the trial. There is also the use of disc brakes which comes really handy for breaking on slopes and increases the altogether maneuverability of the bike.
