Off Road Bicycles are often classed within two broad categories to best identify suitability for the type of riding you’re the most likely to undertake.
Leisure ATBs combine road & light off road riding capabilities, offering the comfort and durability a mountain bike design provides, without higher cost, high-end technology add ons. Fitted with mountain bike style gears, they make light work of short uphill stretches. Generous tyre profiles provide great road holding. The addition of suspension forks facilitates enhanced riding comfort across more difficult terrain.
MTBs have a robust, lightweight aluminium frame accompanied by powerful brakes for rapid stopping and wide ranging gears capable of addressing the challenges of tough upland terrain. Riding positions are assertive to semi-upright, enabling a clear view of oncoming ground, whilst leveraging best all round progress from the physical effort. Long suspension travel and powerful hydraulic disc brakes facilitate speed and control across difficult terain. MTBs also feature high performance off road tyres paired with tough, durable double wall wheel rims.
