Mountain bike riding is one of the new and increasingly popular movements because it is not only a health exercise but also a life-like adventure. Different from the road bike line, terrain bikes are designed to fit and adapt to harsh and dangerous terrain conditions. To choose for yourself a mountain bike like that is not only the external structure or color but also a feature designed to suit each type of terrain. So how to choose a suitable terrain bike, let’s explore it!
- TYPE OF MOUNTAIN BIKE
It can be said that the current mountain bike is divided into 5 categories, including Trail running bike (rough terrain), Cross-Country mountain bike (running by road), Fat terrain bike ( run on snowy or sandy terrain), all-mountain terrain bikes (mountaineering) and downhill mountain bikes (run steep hills).
Trail Mountain Bike Series:
If you are a lover who runs on moderate undulating terrain, the bike trail will be the right choice for you, dedicated to areas with steep terrain, moderate slopes like those Trail trails along hillsides, dirt roads across the forest … Normally, trail bikes are designed with full-suspension (2 fork) to ensure the vehicle can withstand gravity and jet, absorb the effective vibration and shock during running. In addition, mountain bike trails have a larger movement than the other lines, the moving movement is the amount of movement provided by the front and rear fork systems of bicycles.
Cross-Country Mountain Bike Series
Normally, the Cross-Country bike series specializes in the low-slope terrain and big obstacles, divided into 2 types: Hard-Tail and Full-Suspension. For Hard-Tail series, there is only one fork, used to run on terrain with no major obstacles such as gravel and dirt roads. In addition, Full Suspension series is a line of 2 fork, specializing in the topographic surface with small holes, bigger stones and rugged terrain … the second fork helps stabilize the steering wheel more as well as absorb the vibrations throughout pedal process.
