Here’s an essential mountain bike braking tip that gives you more control and confidence on those loose, leafy, sandy or soily downhill sections that aren’t that rough, but often very steep. So steep, that if you enter them a bit too fast, it’s almost impossible to slow down.
The type of downhill trail where lots of mountain bikers lock their rear brake at the top and skid all the way to the bottom.
Don’t let that be you. Next time you approach a section such as that, try this simple mountain bike braking tip instead. Not only will it help you ride down that section with more control, but it will also help you adapt effortlessly to whatever comes next.
