Mountain Bike Guide
For The Love of Dirt
Whether you're seeking adventure, a break from your routine, or a challenging workout, mountain biking is a perfect fit. There’s been plenty of research suggesting that outdoor activities can improve mental and physical health. Maybe that’s why mountain biking fosters such a fun and inviting community.
Mountain bikes are made to ride off-road for adventure, fun, and competition. They’re characterized by wide, knobby tires for increased traction on variable terrain, but there is a great deal of variation between models. Hardtail or full suspension? 29er or 27.5”? Aluminum or carbon? From suspension to frame design, finding the bike that’s right for you depends on where you’ll ride and the type of riding you want to do.
Most styles of mountain bikes are designed to be versatile and perform effectively on a wide range of trails, but the sport has evolved into many different disciplines/riding styles over the years, and determining which style of bike fits your goals is the first step in identifying the bike that you’ll most enjoy riding.
Which Mountain Bike Is Right For You?
Trek trail bikes are your do-more ride. They're versatile, light, and exceedingly capable, climbing as well as they descend, conquering trails from the Dolomites to Durango. These 29er and 27.5? mountain bikes have the MTB suspension capabilities for anything from a quick stint on the trails to a brutal day of enduro racing. No other bikes offer this level of no-compromise performance, any-situation versatility.
Cross Country Bikes
These are the efficient, go-fast bikes of the mountain bike world. Cross country bikes generally have more efficient travel. They feature steep head and seat angles which gives you more power for climbing.
Downhill bikes are built to go big and shred hard, whether you're ripping a World Cup downhill or charging through the gravity park. Exclusive MTB technologies, from incredibly advanced suspension to frames that let you fine-tune your mountain bike geometry for better control, make these the lightest, toughest DH bikes on the mountain.
