Mountain bikes are designed with wide tyres, flat handlebars and can be fitted with suspension for a more comfortable ride. A mix between light and powerful, mountain bicycles (or MTB) are ideal to attack any rough terrain. From downhill bikes to Enduro or cross country mountain bikes, we have a mountain bike to suit your needs. We carry the best mountain bikes from Scott, Haibike, Bergamont and more. All the family can go out on an off-road adventure as we have mountain bikes for men, mountain bikes for women and mountain bikes for kids. With all the options on offer it can be confusing and hard to choose the right mountain bike for you. However, you can split MTB into three main categories:
Rigid Mountain Bikes
If you are a beginner, this is your best option for off-track cycling. These are comfortable, versatile bikes for riding on and off roads. Ideal for commuting and recreational cycling. These mountain bikes have no suspension on the front or rear forks and are easier to handle than a road bike.
Hardtail Mountain Bikes
Hardtail or front suspension mountain bikes are more affordable than the full suspension mountain bikes while still allowing you to get better and lighter components than the rigid MTB. Hardtail bikes also have better handling than entry-level full-suspension bikes. They are excellent cross country bikes and racing bikes thanks to their lighter weight and rigidity. The Scott Aspect is a perfect example of a budget friendly hardtail with quality component.
Full-Suspension Mountain Bikes
If you are looking to push boundaries and ride more technical trails then the full-suspension mountain bikes are for you. These bikes like the Scott Genius are fitted with front and rear suspension improving comfort and helping you to ride more technical terrain. Generally more expensive and heavier, these are for more experienced mountain bikers.
If you wish to give mountain biking a go but think you need a little help to go up the hills, we have a wide selection of electric mountain bikes that you can find here.
