Which Mountain Bike Is Right For You?
Cross Country Bikes
These are the efficient, race ready, 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 and can include hardtails (front suspension only).
These bikes are the Goldilocks of mountain bikes—not too much, and not too little. A trail bike climbs well and descends well. Their relaxed geometry balances climbing efficiency with confident descending prowess. They're "just right" for most applications.
These bikes are built to go fast in the direction that gravity pulls you, down. These bikes give up some climbing efficiency by including more squish than other bikes along with a more relaxed position for confident handling at speed. A natural progression for the more adventurous riders.
