3 Pieces of Mountain Bike Gear All Beginners Need, Dobbs Ferry, New York

Owning a mountain bike is a great way to experience nature and get some exercise at the same time. Riding through trees and over rocks, however, can be strenuous and even dangerous without the proper gear. That’s why Endless Trail Bikeworx, a top bike mountain sales and rental shop in Dobbs Ferry, NY, recommends the following three pieces of equipment for beginners.

Mountain Bike Equipment for Beginners

1. Safety Gear

The importance of proper safety gear cannot be emphasized enough. Look for a helmet with an extended back to provide the fullest coverage possible without investing in a full-face option. A front visor will help block the sun’s rays and keep your vision clear. Attaching lights to your bike is an absolute necessity if you plan on riding in the dark. This alerts pedestrians, other riders, and even animals of your presence. Finally, you may want to invest in knee or elbow pads to protect yourself in the event of a crash.

2. Hydration

3. Flat Kit

Riding a mountain bike can be hard. The terrain is always changing, which puts a lot of pressure and stress on your gear. Sharp rocks, drops, or even sticks can lead to holes or blowouts. Be prepared with a flat kit to solve any minor issues you may come across. This should include a mini pump, spare tube, and tire levers. This will give you all you need to get back home and replace or repair the tire completely.

Mountain bike beginners will benefit from investing in these three pieces of equipment. You can get all they need from Endless Trail Bikeworx. As a full-service shop, we provide bike repairs. rentals, and mountain bike instruction. For more information, visit their website or call (914) 674-8567 today.
