Mountain Bikes For Sale

Go on an adventure and explore the outdoors with a rugged, durable mountain bike. Meant to be ridden on off-road environments, mountain bikes, also known as all-terrain bikes, are perfect for exploring places where cars can't go. Rocks, trails, loose sand and steep grades provide no challenge for the mountain bike, designed to handle obstacles like logs, vertical drop-offs and minor boulders. Mountain bikes differ from typical bicycles, including a suspension system, more heavy-duty wheels and tires, powerful brakes and lower gear ratios to handle steep grades and rough terrain.

Cross Country Racing

A growing sport among the mountain bike crowd is cross country racing. Cross country mountain bikes have to be lightweight and efficient, like the Giant Hardtail XtC Composite 29er 1. Hardtail bikes consist of lightweight steel frames with rigid forks, to improve pedalling efficiency and allowing for a smoother ride. Cross country bikes emphasise the ability to climb quickly, with precise, responsive steering. The larger wheels also help with speed and make for a smooth, painless ride. The Giant Hardtail XtC Composite 29er 1 features larger diameter wheels for stability and control without sacrificing speed and quickness.

Riding the Trails

Trail bikes are more rugged and sturdy, meant to handle rougher terrain than most cross country mountain bikes. Trail bikes, as the name implies, are usually ridden on man-made trail centres, or natural off-road trails. Like the Schwinn Protocol 1.0, they have slightly smaller wheels, and a heavier frame, to better handle rocks, sand, and steeper inclines and declines. The brakes tend to be more powerful on trail bikes, providing stopping power when it's needed.

Built for Endurance

Enduro bikes are the most rough and tumble of all of the mountain bikes. Built heavier and looser than cross country or trail bikes, endure bikes are specifically built to eat up the distance of an ascent, revealing just why these kinds of bikes are also called all-mountain bikes. The Diamondback Mason FS Pro 29er is built sturdy and solid to withstand the most merciless terrain, with pedal-friendly characteristics to help with the steepest of climbs. Four-piston brakes also keep descents controlled and safe after you ride up to the top of the mountain.
