Mountain bikes – on the terrain!
Where the road ends, the fun begins for mountain bikers. What only started in the 1970s is today the most successful wheel movement worldwide and in many technical areas of the engine for the entire wheel industry. Mountain bikes guarantee a lot of driving pleasure to almost everyone, whether as a robust companion for city and land, as an ideal bike to leave everyday life quickly, or as purebred sports equipment for tours and action in the exposed terrain. In principle, a distinction is made between hardtail mountain bikes with a suspension fork and residual rear wheel and full-suspension bikes with suspension on the front and rear wheel. For different applications, wheel sizes, spring trends, geometries, equipment, weight and not least the price vary.
The perfect mountain bike – how do I find it?
Whether touring wheelers on single trails, downhill athlete or laundering dirtjump fan – mountain bikers as well as their underries are manifold and multifaceted. But one thing is clear: the mountain bike should always be ideally suited for purpose to deliver the best possible performance. As you find the companion for the terrain, which fits perfectly to you, you will find out here.
Hardtail or Fully – Which MTB type suits me?
The mountain bike segment basically shares in two different types: in hardtails and fullys. Especially as a newcomer in the MTB sports, you should therefore think about which bike fits better to your needs and for which purpose you want to use it. We show you what the two bike variants differ and what their advantages and disadvantages are.
Unlike a fully, the hardtail does not have a spring-loaded backbody and is thus sprung correspondingly less or harder. The original MTB variant is now equipped by default with a front suspension fork and is ideal for purists, nostalgics, but also for leisure drivers as well as in the speed disciplines. Another advantage is the hardtail due to its significantly lower weight. For those who are mostly on roads and dirt roads on the road and just want to drive out, unpassive single trails, a hardtail is as created.
The full suspension “bike has a full suspension bike has both a front suspension fork and a sprung spring. Shocks and strokes are optimally attenuated and your traction in the grounds rises enormously. Anyone who likes to drive with pace about stones, roots and other unevennesses in the terrain, which should definitely grab the fully. However, you should still be aware that additional suspension is noticeable in weight. A fully is a bit heavier than a hardtail.
Which MTB is optimal for beginners?
Beginners in the MTB area can be used for slight tours on forest roads on a hardtail. They are initially cheaper in the purchase, and because less moving parts are installed, also very low maintenance. The classic bikes are therefore ideal for use on field and forest roads as well as for the downhill area without large bumps. Relaxed day trips and occasional single trails are also possible with a hardtail.
Cross Country – the competition bike for ambitious cyclists
Cross Country or Marathon bikes are in use, especially in sporting use, to the race, because here is the performance in the foreground. It’s about best times, minimal weight and low rolling resistance. Hydraulic disc brakes and lightweight aluminum or carbon frame are almost duty. The mountain bikes therefore usually weigh less than 10 kilos.
Downhill & Freeride Bikes
If your destination is slower terrain and you stand on downhill, you should decide for a downhill bike. Due to the high load in the terrain, they are very robust, which results in a high weight of about 16 to 18 kg. They also have large suspension forks with spring trails between 180 and 250 mm.
High jumps are more likely to be possible with the freeriders, the wearing of integral helmet and protectors is extremely important for your safety.
All Mountain & Enduro Mountainbikes
Enduro Mountainbikes are the sporting all-rounder. Drops and small jumps are easily possible because there are enough robustness and spring travel reserves. Fun on technical trails is preprogrammed with these models. Similarly, they are ideal for a driving experience in sophisticated terrain and bike parks.
All Mountain Bikes play their strengths on long and mountainous tours. For trails with longer climbs, they are created. But also downhill all Mountain Bikes accept all challenges.
The small and agile frame of the Dirt Bikes is perfect for tricks and tricks. Applications are mainly fungal types as well as the sporty driving over earth and kicker. The suspension fork therefore has a small spring path or was replaced by a rigid fork. Incidentally, there is no gear shift in these models.
Do women need a special mountain bike?
The equipment and geometry is specially tailored to the female body for a women’s mountain bike. The seating position is upright and the frame is smaller than with a men’s moutain bike. In addition to the smaller frame models, the other physical textures are also addressed. As a rule, women have a wider seat bone distance. Also, the pubic bone sits a bit deeper than the man, which is why the saddle was adjusted for these models.
The length of the upper body also distributes the balance of power differently. The stem of the wheel is tailored to this type shorter. The handlebar is generally shorter and the handles are a bit narrower to get good grip with smaller hands.
Our tip: When the geometry fits, women can also drive men’s models. However, as with all mountain bikes, the frame size frame must fit.
Which wheel sizes are distinguished?
Basically, three impeller sizes are distinguished during a mountain bike. Bikes with smaller frames are more agile and you get easier around the curve, while more traction is given to the larger setting. Smaller wheels also bounce into the obstacle in a steeper angle and are therefore braked more strongly.
The frame and the fork of your bikes first give the basic size. With the tire selection you can then customize your driving behavior to your driving style and field of application.
26 inches – the traditional frame
Frame with 26 inches are considered as a great amount of the mountain bike wheel. With the smaller frames you are a more agile and come to the curve easier. Especially for younger and smaller bikers, freeriders and nostalgics is 26 inches the right choice.
27.5 inches – the all-rounder
Departure-oriented All-Mountain and Endurofahers find a good alternative in mediocrity. They better roll over obstacles than the 26-inch variant and are more agile than the big 29-inch wheels. Optimal performance is generated by the high stiffness in the 27.5-inch mountain bike – especially in cornering.
29 inches – the twentyniners
Twentyniners are fully in trend for cross-country, marathon and touring use. Here there is greater smoothness and traction while rolling out obstacles and higher speeds can be achieved.
The ideal frame material for your mountain bike
The frame material has a great impact on your future driving experience in terms of weight and stability.
