The type of wheel and its components will also be a consideration. Much of the stress of riding will be absorbed through the wheel and tire, and having the right kind of tire and components will be important. Again, it will depend on many factors; primarily what kind of terrain you‘ll be riding on as well as the kind of riding you’re going to do.
When mountain biking, there are different types of equipment needed. First and foremost is the right bike for your body type and riding needs. Going to a store that specializes in mountain bikes and gear is a good idea for anyone just starting out with the sport. In addition to the bike, there is also some essential equipment every rider should have. Since mountain biking takes place on more difficult terrain than traditional cycling, safety gear is especially important in order to reduce the chances of serious injury. The most important item you need is a helmet. A helmet should be the #1 item you get when getting ready to head out on the trail. A helmet will protect your head should you fall in difficult terrain, and since its much easier to fall where the terrain is rough, you absolutely need strong head protection. Don’t skimp when it comes to your helmet.
The majority of the mountain bikes are designed for riders of 1.75 meters, weighing around 75 kilograms and with above average form. If those are your values, you‘re lucky, because the amount of bikes that can fit you is practically endless.
