Enduro or all-mountain riding - adrenaline-fueled adventure
Enduro really puts the adventure into mountain bike racing with extremely technical tracks which can include big drops and adrenaline-fueling jumps. Usually completed in staged races over a few days, Enduro competitions involve timed descents and steep climbs. Enduro started in the mountains of Europe and is now an extremely popular sport worldwide with modern competitions involving three to six timed trails. It is a good way to spend a day in beautiful natural scenery among like-minded cycling enthusiasts.
Who takes part in Enduro?
Although Enduro riders face the challenges of rugged mountain terrain along with drops and jumps, it is still an approachable sport for novice riders. Competitors race the clock rather than each other with everyone, no matter their experience, tackling the same course. Top Enduro riders combine the full skill set of physical fitness, mental stamina and bike handling skills within their performance. Wearing a full-face Enduro mtb helmet and some degree of padded body armour is highly advisable.
Enduro mountain bike specifications
The best Enduro mtb is a tough and robust full-suspension one made of carbon or aluminium. It will have longer rear and front suspension travel than other types of mountain bikes with a front suspension travel generally between 150mm and 185mm. The suspension can be locked to assist with the steep climbs. Large brake rotors and a wide gear selection are helpful while tire conditions depend to an extent on the surface of the trail.
