Appropriate clothing is also essential for mountain biking. Your clothes should be lightweight and comfortable for the weather, but also strong and durable. Don’t forget the shoes, your shoes need to be comfortable but also practical for the terrain.
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.
So if you are just starting to ride bikes for the first time, please don't just jump on the bike a go for a 20 mile ride as it may do you more harm than good. One thing that is recommended is to do short rides to start with, maybe only a couple of miles which will take no time at all on a bike to get your fitness training up to scratch before hitting the bike ride.
