Hardtail Bikes

Hardtail mountain bikes are unique mountain bikes in that they are a mountain bike that has no rear suspension. Most of the time they are a cross country bike without a rear suspension but they can be other types of mountain bikes.

You might be wondering why would someone purposefully choose a bike without a rear suspension? After all, it means any bumps you hit with the rear tires you will feel it immediately.

Well, that’s exactly the reason someone would choose one. Without a suspension all of your pedal power goes right to the wheels. It also teaches the rider to take a line down the path that avoid bumps and such and helps them to be a more precise rider.

Hardtail bikes are perfect for those riders that want a more raw and direct ride.
