TAKE A RIDE ON THE WILD SIDE

If you've been yearning for excitement that gets the heart pumping and adrenaline flooding your veins, try hurling yourself down a steep freeride course.

In less hectic riding, a mechanical fault or a steering mistake is no great problem, even on a technical course – you can always put one foot down. But when you're dodging trees, pushing the envelope and close to the edge, the famous Murphy's Law applies: Prepare on the assumption that the worst will happen. You and your bike must obey Murphy – and here's how to do it.  Let's assume that you have a standard mountain bike, and an urge to tackle a freeride course for the first time.

CUT THE DRAG WITH AERO TECH

Every part of the frame is designed for a smooth aerofoil section and low frontal area – which is why the “top tube” of the frame is horizontal. To cut turbulence, components such as brakes are sheltered from the wind behind parts of the frame. A steep seat post angle allows the rider to “get on top of his work” in a streamlined position.
