What is a full sus MTB?
A full sus mountain bike has suspension on both the front and rear wheels for improved performance over rough ground.
What type of full sus do I need?
The many types of full sus MTBs can be defined by their suspension travel.
XC bikes: 80 – 110mm. Aggressive angles for nimble handling and rapid climbing. Best for cross country riding and racing.
Trail bikes: 120 – 150mm. Competent climbers but are more fun on the descents. Best for technical trail riding and trail centre loops.
Enduro bikes: 160mm – 180mm. Relaxed geometry for competent descending but can still be ridden uphill. Best for steep, challenging trails and enduro racing.
Downhill bikes: 200mm. Very competent descending on steep and technical trails but not designed to be ridden uphill. Built for advanced downhill tracks and DH racing
What wheel size is best for me?
26” wheels - most nimble, now only found on specialist freestyle bikes
27.5” (650b) wheels – offer the ideal balance between rapid rolling and nimble handling.
29” wheels – fastest over rough ground but less nimble. 29ers can take on more challenging terrain with less suspension travel.
27.5+ (6fattie) wheels - wider tyres (up to 3”) ideal for more challenging terrain as they offer more grip.
What are the frames made of?
Aluminium - robust and durable. More expensive MTBs tend to have lighter ‘butted’ frames.
Carbon fibre - robust, durable and lightweight. These start at around £2,500
Do the shocks and forks vary?
Most full sus MTBs have reasonable suspension and their capabilities increase as you go up the price points. RockShox and Fox shocks with adjustable compression damping offer the best performance.
What are the gearing options?
Full sus MTBs (apart from downhill bikes) offer a wide range of gears for taking on a variety of terrain. Shifting gets easier as you move up the price points with more cogs on the rear cassette and fewer front chainrings.
