A mountain bike is a real entry ticket allowing you to experience places first-hand that would other be difficult to access through other sports. Mountain bikes are classified by frame and suspension.
MTBs are broken down into 5 sub-categories: Sport, Cross-country, Trail, All Mountain and Enduro.
SPORT: these are ideal entry-level bikes for anyone who wants to approach this sport. CROSSCOUNTRY: these are the lightest and have the most rigid characteristics, needed for tackling the most obstinate climbs. TRAIL: these bikes inherit climbing characteristics by combining a greater range to tackle descents with greater safety. ALL MOUNTAIN: they represent the best compromise between efficiency on the climb and control on descents thanks to forks and shock absorbers with a range of 140/150 mm. ENDURO: these are the ideal choice for tackling the most technical descents at maximum speed using 160/170 mm suspension.
For the frame, the most common materials are aluminium and carbon. These elements ensure rigidity that will prevent energy from being dispersed while pedalling. Carbon stands out for its lightness whilst maintaining flexibility and rigidity. When the bike is made up of a front fork and rear suspension it is called "full suspended"; the "front suspended" version, on the other hand, is characterised by a suspension front fork and a rigid rear part. For this 2021, the top-of-the-range models are fitted with 12-speed gearboxes, whose operation is apparently fluid and silent.
