In this section, we will review some of the ATV-specific terms that appear on our site.

Enduro mountain bike

This young mountain bike discipline owes its emergence to the evolution of technology in recent years with the widespread use of carbon in the manufacture of mountain bike frames.

Enduro mountain bike

This young mountain bike discipline owes its emergence to the evolution of technology in recent years with the widespread use of carbon in the manufacture of mountain bike frames.

The discipline consists of riding on natural terrain, outside the bike park, using ski lifts, public transport or shuttle buses in order to do most of the climbing without pedalling. This does not prevent the practice from being physical because in natural terrain, we will always have small climbs to climb.

Enduro bikes are fully suspended and have a suspension travel of between 150 mm and 180 mm (15-18 cm). They weigh between 12 kg and 17 kg. This discipline is aimed at mountain bikers who want to combine thrills and discovery of the region.

Downhill or mountain bike

This discipline appeared in the 1990s with the appearance of the first suspensions borrowed from motocross. The discipline consists in practising only downhill with mountain bikes adapted to this practice. They have large suspensions with a travel of between 200 mm and 250 mm (20-25 cm). The discipline is practised on prepared terrain, called BikePark, which includes jumps and sharp turns prepared for the practice and development of the bikers' riding techniques.

All the climbs are done with the help of ski lifts. The discipline is aimed at mountain bikers who want to improve their riding skills and are looking for a thrill.

Cross Country MTB

This is the main discipline that everyone knows. It consists of a classic mountain bike ride, during which as much positive as negative elevation change is done. All the climbs are done by pedal power. The mountain bikes are semi-rigid or full-suspension with a travel of between 80 mm and 100 mm (8-10 cm) and a weight generally below 12 kg. This discipline is aimed at trained mountain bikers who wish to combine physical effort with the discovery of a region.


The BMX is a small bike without suspension equipped with 20" wheels. These bikes allow the learning of the aerial side of the mountain bike, especially on jumps. The discipline is practised on a prepared ground which comprises sequences of jumps of rollers (whoops) and raised turns. It is aimed at mountain bikers looking for aerial control and mastery of transitions.

Mountain Bike Trials

Trial is practiced with a bike without suspension and 26" or 24" wheels. This discipline allows for balance and clearance, and is practiced on street furniture or with obstacles built of wood and natural elements. Trials is aimed at mountain bikers who want to improve their balance and crossing skills.


The E Bike is a young and rapidly developing mountain bike discipline, with electric power assistance at speeds below 25 km/h. The E-Bike allows everyone, regardless of their physical level, to participate in a great mountain bike ride. The E-Bike is aimed at groups with different levels of ability who still want to enjoy a group ride. The E-Bike allows you to smooth out the differences in level within a group.


The Bikepark is a set of trails and obstacles prepared for downhill mountain biking. The Bikepark is made up of obstacles such as: Table, Drop, Double, Roller, North-Shore, High Bend, etc.


Represents a classic jump with a take-off area and a landing area connected by a flat section. This allows you to try out jumps without requiring a minimum speed to reach the landing zone as it is possible to land on the flat transition area.


A drop is a jump where the take-off is higher than the landing and the area between the take-off and the landing is usually not suitable for riding on, so the rider has to jump to the landing area. One of the crucial elements of the drop is the increase in speed of the rider between take-off and landing.


Represents a jump that has a gap between the take-off and landing area, which requires the biker to fly over the gap area in order to reach the landing area.

Roller (Whoops)

A bump with a rounded top that allows you to either control your speed or generate more speed. These rollers are usually in the form of sections that have a sequence of these rollers.

Raised turn

These are the basic turns in the Bikepark. These turns are upright, which is one of the main aspects of downhill mountain biking. They allow you to keep your speed and even gain speed in the corner. Brake management in banked turns is of paramount importance.


Typical North American construction. It represents an aerial path built in wood without railings, which allows you to cross the most technical areas of the mountain that cannot be crossed. Be careful with your balance on the north shore.


This consists of Wheeling or riding on the rear wheel without pedalling while managing your balance by means of the rear brake alone.


This means braking hard with the front brake only and controlling your balance on the front wheel with the force of the braking only.


This consists of passing through a tight corner while balancing on the front wheel. Control of the front brake is essential for this exercise to be successful.

One Hand

The act of taking one hand off the handlebars in the air and putting it back on before landing.
