Hardtail

Hardtail explained

A hardtail absorbs shock from the front wheel through the fork but remains rigid at the back.

The rigid back is more efficient for pedalling, putting more power into your climbing.

It’s the ideal bike for cross country riding.



Full Suspension Bikes

Full suspension explained

A full suspension bike has front and back suspension to absorb shocks from rough ground.

They’re designed for undulating trails, short sharp climbs and tricky steep descents.

Gear up for your ride

You have your new bike, the sun is shining and you’re ready to ride. Before exploring the trails, forests and mountains, remember your protective gear- a helmet along with glasses or goggles. In the event of a puncture, carrying a spare tube, tubeless repair kit and pump will ensure you can ride home.
