What makes a mountain bike?

Mountain bikes come with flat handlebars for a wider grip to provide riders with more control over their bike. The tires on a mountain bike come in a variety of sizes including 26”, 27.5” and 29”, all of which have their own unique benefits and all of which are grooved to better grip the trail.

Many mountain bikes also include a front suspension and/or rear suspension fork to help smooth out the ride. Disc brakes are extremely popular in this category as they allow sure stopping power, even on dusty, muddy, trails.
