Designed For Any Terrain
The high-quality MTB from Rockrider are designed for any terrain; off-road and mountain rides for all mountain bikers, from beginner to expert. You can split a mountain bike into different types and the biggest difference is a hardtail mountain bike or a full suspension mountain bike. Depending on the terrain where you want to ride, you choose an MTB. A full suspension MTB generally gives a more comfortable ride due to the rear suspension. This MTB is often used on rough terrain, where a hardtail MTB, which does not have the availability of a rear suspension, is used especially in the woods. The hardtail MTBs are generally cheaper and lighter than a full suspension. The Rockrider MTBs are sporty mountain bikes that can be used daily and these sporty all-rounders are characterized by the finer technical specifications. Sporty MTBs are equipped with front forks with more suspension, partial air damping, disc brakes (mechanical or hydraulic) and a maximum of 30 gears.
Mountain Bike 26 inch
The 26 inch mountain bike is the traditional wheel size for a mountain bike. The traditional wheel size offers fast acceleration and is very manoeuvrable. However, a 26-inch mountain bike offers less grip than its bigger brothers and also offers less speed. On the other hand, a 26-inch mountain bike is very manoeuvrable in wooded terrain, making it easy to maneuver between obstacles.
Mountain Bike 29 inch
A 29 inch indicates the wheel size of the mountain bike. This is the latest trend in mountain biking. 29 inches stands for a mountain bike with 29 inch wheels. These are considerably larger wheels than those of a traditional mountain bike. The advantage of a 29er is that it rolls more easily over roots and other obstacles. In addition, a 29er more easily maintains its speed and is very stable during the descents. On the other hand, it accelerates less quickly than the smaller variants and is less agile and playful. You do get more comfort in return. Depending on your driving style, you choose the right size wheels. If you want to drive quickly and comfortably, then you go for a 29er. If you want more maneuverability, you are better off with a smaller wheel size. In addition, an intermediate variant is also possible, which has a wheel size of 27.5 inches. This is the ultimate compromise of the 29er and the 26 inch variant. You retain the maneuverability and acceleration of a 26-inch variant and you approach that of the 29er in terms of speed and comfort.
