Mountain Bikes

If you’re searching for a bike to tackle off road challenges, power through trails, and climb steep hills with ease; you need a mountain bike. The AW Cycles online store has a wide range of off-road bicycles to choose from, including many well known brands.

Why Choose A Mountain Bike?

Also known as MTB or an all terrain bicycle, these bicycles are ideal for riding on dirt trails and unpaved surfaces. Their design makes them better suited to terrain that would be difficult to ride on when using a road bicycle, taming the unfriendly terrain.

Bicycles designed for off-road and harsh terrain are often very light weight, making them ideal for climbing hills. This means that they can be a great chat for beginners. Additionally, as there are lots of accessories designed for off-road biking, our online store also has a plethora of products for experienced cyclists.

Full Suspension Or Hardtail – What Should You Choose?

When browsing through a selection of all terrain bicycles, you will generally find two styles of bike, full suspension bikes and hardtail bikes. If you’re unsure which is best suited to your needs, here’s some quick advice to give you a helping hand.

  • Full Suspension
    When riding on a full suspension bicycle, the cyclist can enjoy a softer ride with less bounce on rough terrain. This will allow you to stay seated for a larger portion of a trail ride, whereas cyclists with front-only suspension may need to stand on their pedals for the majority of the ride. Additionally, the dual suspension of a full sus bike provides a boost to traction, allowing you to corner faster with safer jumps as the suspension will absorb more impact of the landing, assisting you bring the bike under control.

  • Hardtail
    A mountain bicycle is considered hardtail if it only has suspension at the front of the bicycle. At first glance, it may seem more beneficial to have as much suspension as possible, however by restricting your suspension to the front of the bicycle, you reduce the amount of weight on the bicycle and you increase the energy-efficiency of the bicycle as the force of pushing down is focused into the pedals, and not into the rear suspension.  This makes hardtail bicycles a great choice for those searching for a bicycle to use on both off-road trails and smooth roads.
