Mountain Biking Gear

When you decided to start mountain biking did you think there was going to be so much that you need? I think that it is pretty important to have the right gear. I mean if you are going on a long ride you don’t want to have a heavy shirt and you defiantly want gloves! Here is a list of the must have things of mountain biking!

  • Full finger biking gloves.
  • Mountain bike riding shorts
  • Mountain bike helmet 
  • Clipless pedal shoes 
  • A water bottle

And just in case…

  • A small tool kit 

Now that you know every thing that you need for mountain biking, you can go out when winters over and shred it up on the trails!!!

    Great post Emma, I love how you mentioned the small tool kit, MBA is always talking about how those things have saved peoples lives! The one thing I noticed was that you said “a list of the have to have things of mountain biking!” I think that the right thing to say there is, “a list of the must have things for mountain biking!”
    Great post!!
    Did you see I posted again?

    Thank you for the tips on the gear. Why “full finger” gloves? When I was more into mountain biking I used gloves that had the fingers cut off. I really only needed the padding for my hands.

    If you would do a post on the benefits of mountain biking shorts I’d appreciate it. Also, a post on helmets would be great.

      No problem! I am pretty sure the reason for full finger gloves is that they have better protection for falls and can absorb bumps and shocks. I will try to do a post on those things but I don’t know if I will be able to find enough information.
