Cycles Bikes and Frames Hardtail MTB
The all-terrain off-road bikes, Mountain bikes are at home on mountain trails or getting muddy on a dirt track with the ability to handle the varied terrain. Mountain bikes have a more robust frame and generally weigh a bit more than road bikes to handle the rougher ground. Mountain bikes are one of the more popular styles of bikes in the winter months as their ability to handle the more extreme weather conditions compared to road bikes, letting you cycle the whole year round.
Although MTBs are designed specifically off-road use, they can still be used on road or tarmac, this versatility is another reason for their increasing popularity. MTBs are fitted with wider tyres and more tread to provide grip when moving over rough terrain and in different weather conditions. They also feature a ‘flat’, wider handlebar that enables the rider to have more control over a bumpy off-road terrain. Available with the choice of full-suspension or hardtail with front suspension, the suspension makes crossing the rough terrain easier and with less physical stress on the body.
