There are five very general categories in mountain biking, downhill, dirt jump, cross country, trials/street riding and free ride. While each type has its own certain characteristics, the equipment is basically the same. The bikes are sturdy with large round tubing to make up the frame, knobby tires and shock absorbers or suspension.
This type of biking involves hopping and jumping bikes over various obstacles. It has the versatility to be done either off road or in urban areas. The rider must have a very good sense of balance and skill. This is very similar to skateboarding where style, originality and techniques count.
As more makers compete for shares in the trail cycling market, they are occupied with the constant development of bike technology, including the materials used in building the bikes. Mountain biking technology has increased by jumps and bounds since the pioneers first assembled mountain bicycles, and has resulted in bikes that are very light-weight yet highly durable. Again, striking a balance between these 2 aspects depends heavily on the sort of mountain bicycle riding you would like to do, and on what terrain.
