Prepare To Hit the Trails

Whether you’re an experienced trail rider or out for the first time, using the appropriate mountain bike gear, clothing and equipment is key to the success of your ride. We’ve put together a list of the must-haves - take a look and let us know if you have any questions.

Don't Forget Your Helmet

Your helmet is your most important piece of gear and should be worn on every ride. Mountain bike helmets normally include a visor which helps block out the sun, allowing you to focus on the trail.

Grab Your Gloves

Protect your fingers and hands from the branches and bramble of the trail with a pair of full finger mountain bike gloves. Your hands absorb plenty of shock from the trail so gloves will also elevate your comfort level, especially on a long ride. We have a variety of sizes and styles for men and women.

Pick Your Pedals & Choose Your SHoes

Many riders start mountain biking with flat pedals, and these days, many riders are returning to their roots. Clipless (which actually clip in) pedals can provide efficiency and control.


It's the key to success! There are several options for carrying your water, snacks, and tools and we can help you pick what's best for you. Water bottles, hydration packs, hip packs, there's a solution for you.

Prepare for a Repair

There is nothing worse than hiking your bike because you flatted and forgot a tube or a tire plug. To avoid that scenario, pack a saddle bag with the essentials for minor bike repairs. At minimum, your saddle bag should include a multi-tool, an extra tube, tire levers, a patch kit, and CO2 or a mini-pump. (We’d also pack a snack!)
