Recreational mountain bikes are perfect for most youngsters, teenagers and generally for those that want a stable, easy to handle, comfortable and versatile mountain bike.
These bikes usually feature a small amount of front suspension to reduce feedback and improve control when riding on un-sealed surfaces such as coarse gravel and dirt. In most products, the front suspension will also have a lockout feature; allowing the rider to turn the suspension off when it isn’t required, such as on sealed surfaces.
Recreational mountain bikes are usually cheaper - as they are made for less serious riders, but there are several high quality bikes available. The range of Malvern Star Mountain Bikes are a good example of this type of bike.
