So How to Jump a Mountain Bike?
In this video, Ben will explain the basics of How to Jump a Mountain Bike for beginners and cover 2 basic Jumping techniques:
Push - The simplest & safest way to start jumping a mountain bike. It's important to focus on pushing the bike while we are on the base of the jump and relax once as quickly as possible once we are in the air.
- Pop - Slightly more advanced technique to get more air & distance in your jumps. You need the same focus to push the bike while on the takeoff and standing up once we hit the peak of the jump.
