Enduro bikes

What is enduro mountain biking?

Enduro mountain biking has its roots in enduro racing. In enduro racing, riders are timed on specific sections (usually downhill), but must travel between timed sections. So, enduro mountain biking is similar in some ways to downhill riding. The bikes are built for insane levels of competence when riding downhill. However, enduro mountain bikes differ from downhill or freeride bikes in that they’re a bit more versatile. They can climb very well for how burly they are, whereas a downhill bike is pretty much useless unless it’s going, you know, down hill. 

While enduro mountain biking has its roots in racing, enduro bikes are a popular option for riders looking to charge down hard trails, but still want to be able to ride efficiently up climbs and between steep trails and sections. 

Why should I pick an enduro mountain bike over a trail bike? 

If charging steep, burly trails as fast as possible really whets your whistle, get an enduro bike. You‚Äôll still be able to rip it up for the day with your pals¬†on trail bikes, but you‚Äôll absolutely demolish descents and burlier sections of trail. Sure, you might suffer a bit more on the climbs‚ÄĒso if climbing prowess and keeping cross country levels of pace on the flats is important to you, then go for the trail bike. But if sending it as fast as possible downhill (and the occasional bike park day) is appealing to you, go for enduro.

Is riding an electric enduro mountain bike fun?

For sure! An electric enduro mountain bike makes sense for a lot of reasons. For one, it allows riders to ride a super tough and capable mountain bike without ever feeling the weight of the bike on climbs. It also let‚Äôs riders save tons of energy when climbing or transitioning between trails. The result is the ability to ride more trails in a day than ever before. You‚Äôll cover way more ground, and won‚Äôt get nearly as tired doing it. It also lets riders keep up with friends who might be a fit fitter on the ups‚ÄĒso you‚Äôll be able to hit up more group rides than before. The electric approach might not be for everyone, but if any of the above sounds appealing to you, an electric enduro mountain bike is a fantastic option.¬†

The best fat tire bikes are tough, durable, and feature massive amounts of tire clearance. If you look at a fat bike, it’s pretty simple. They’re usually rigid (re: they have no suspension), they have disc brakes, and they have massive tires. Those massive tires are key (more on that below).
