Our Range Of Downhill Mountain Bikes For Sale

Downhill mountain bikes feature front and rear suspension with over 20cm of travel.
Specifically designed for downhill racing, downhill mtb are unlike most bikes as they are made for descending a course in the shortest time frame, so majority of focus is put into this, rather than uphill pedalling. Downhill bikes need to stand up to the challenge of travelling the shortest line possible at the highest speed. Often, a chairlift is used to get back to point A, so downhill bikes are big, mean, and built to last the trip down, not to quickly ride back up.
