Bicycle Tricks & Repair : How to Prepare to Perform Mountain Bike Stunts


When getting ready to do stunts on your mountain
bike or any bicycle the first thing that you are going to want to do is have a good helmet.
Things that you are going to want to look for is light weight and durability. This is
your standard bicycle helmet here and it is good for cross country riding but it is not
going to take a lot of impact. If you are going to be doing more jumps you are going
to want to go with a more aggressive style helmet, something that is going to be a lot
more durable more along the lines of this full face helmet which is going to protect
not only your entire head but also your face. This one here is made out of carbon fiber
and it goes for around $120. You can get half shell helmets that are basically the same
thing but they are missing this face part here for around $89. The other thing that
you are going to want to have is a good set of gloves. This is a set of mountain bike gloves that
are padded. They protect your knuckles and it is really thick leather on the palm and
that is something else that you are going to want to look for. For doing really extreme
stuff on mountain bikes they also make body armor which is a really good thing to invest
in if you are going to be doing some really big jumps or doing downhill riding which comes
with spinal protection, and your shoulders, forearms and elbows.
