Choose Your Bike

Hardtail

Hardtail, or front-suspension, mountain bikes are great all-around off-road machines. Their simple design makes them a good choice for riding trails, gravel paths, light bikepacking, and even pavement.

Full Suspension

Full-suspension mountain bikes are designed to tackle a variety of tricky terrain. Having front and rear suspension helps keep both wheels in contact with the trail for better traction and control.

Electric

Crush your favorite trail with more gas left over at the end. Climb hills that were once insurmountable. Enjoy longer rides. Speed through flats. The possibilities are endless with electric mountain bikes. Available in hardtail and full suspension.

Frames

Customize your ride by starting with a solid frame. We can help you build out the bike of your dreams, or take the reins yourself and bring your blank canvas to life. Whether you’re the singletrack cruiser or death-defying descent type, we have the frame to build out your perfect MTB.

Gear Up & Get Out There

Whether it’s your very first MTB or an addition to the stable, outfitting yourself and your bike with the right cycling apparel and accessories makes it easy to jump on and tear up the trails. Explore our recommendations for indispensable new bike gear for any riding conditions.

Helmets

Safety first, fun second. Look, it’s actually pretty safe out there, but you never know what’s around the next bend. Modern helmets are more protective and comfortable than ever and are styled to fit every rider’s personal preferences. Also, it’s good to replace your helmet every 3-5 years to ensure it works as designed when you need it.

Eyewear

Don’t let a little mud get you down. Keep the trail out of your eyes with quality eyewear. Sunny conditions can be hard on your eyes, so make sure to wear UV rated sunglasses on your next ride. A stylish pair of spectacles can improve your adventures, not to mention keep you looking great.

Gloves

Blistered hands don’t make our list of great riding memories. Protect your paws from the elements with the right gloves. Bask in the sun while staying sun safe, and on chillier days, opt for a pair of bar mitts to stay warm.  Lightweight gloves can guard you from calluses while staying breathable.

Shoes

Designed for off-road adventures, mountain shoes feature durable construction and extra tread for hiking over rocks, loose dirt, and wet roots. Shoes with clip-in functionality increase pedaling efficiency and prevent your feet from slipping around on the pedals while covering aggressive terrain. 

Hydration

Staying hydrated is key to a successful ride so don't forget to pack plenty of water. Whether you prefer to carry the water on your bike or haul it on your back, you can find the hydration gear you need for your next trail adventure. We have a great selection of water bottles, bottle cages, hydration packs and systems, and more.
