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.
Bike tools should be taken along on the trail as well, since the heavy strain of off road and off path riding leads to more mechanical and equipment breakdowns. Essential tools to have with you include a tire pump, extra tire tubes or chains and a basic toolkit to allow you to repair your bike if needed.
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.
