What is downhill mountain bike racing?
…You might had a pretty fun riding down the hill. For such purposes a special construction of bicycles was brought to life. It’s been used in cycling disciplines in which the force of gravity plays a dual role of an ally and an enemy at the same time. Downhill bike which we are talking about is an indispensable machine for riding through routes such steep that crossing them on our own legs may seem almost impossible. But a trained eye will notice that tracks designed for downhill sport racing are cleverly shaped to increase the speed of cyclists. In fact the better technique they have, the less braking they need and finally the better results they achieve.
Downhill bikes combines two elements: solid and stable construction ready to survive massive drops with durable and effective suspension suitable for rolling over slick roots and rockgardens. Of course You won’t drive like a Pro without proper skills, but thanks to well-designed machin, such as the Zumbi F44, cyclist can feel more confident on downhills, leaving worries about the equipment away. Full suspension system with virtual point – how does it work?
