Of course, bicycles have always been ridden off road but the actual mountain biking sport began in the 1970s. Riders from Colorado and a couple of places in California claim to be the ones to give birth to the sport. While each group may have some validity to the claim, the bottom line is that many have contributed in the growth and development of the sport. Many people have designed bikes, built bikes and created equipment that has catapulted the sport to the popularity that it enjoys today.
Composite materials like Kevlar (the same material used for bulletproof vests) and carbon fiber are the hottest composites used to make trail bicycle frames. These materials are also made use of for other parts of the bike, as they are intensely light-weight and very robust. However bike frames made with Kevlar and carbon fiber are exceedingly difficult to fix when damaged.
Getting such a perfect beauty out in the market involves intensive care and construction and a lot of research and development coupled with thorough testing in the lab and real terrain to ensure that the bike will see through the worst of times. An important component of the bike is the biker itself. The person at the handlebars and the track through which the bike is subjected determine the design and sensitivity of a particular model. The empirical data is modeled in a computer with real bikers providing the feel for the right design that ensures a satisfying ride.
