The perfect mountain biking kit

Luke

Mountain biking is one of my favourite past-times. Whenever I get a free weekend, I pack up my bike and head to the countryside. I was recently asked what to take on a mountain bike ride, so I've put together a list of essential mountain biking kit that we stock at Everyone Bikes and why each item is important.

CAMELBAK AURORA HYDRATION PACK

  • Lightweight
  • Large water bladder inside
  • Pockets for tools, maps, phone, food, etc...
  • Small bit of protection if you do take a tumble

BONTRAGER INNER TUBE

  • Saves repairing a hole in an inner tube, which can be fiddly and time consuming in the winter or rain.

MULTI TOOL

  • Useful if something strange breaks or bends, sometimes a range of tools will help swap a bolt from another area of the bike or simply adjust saddle height.
  • Save another rider whom you may encounter on your journey.
  • Adjust brake lever position or maybe sort an issue with bent brake pads or callipers.

LEZYNE PUMP

  • Does what is says, allows a tube to be inflated so we can ride again.

LEZYNE TYRE LEVER AND PATCH KIT

  • Great levers for taking a tyre off and patches can save a horrid walk back if you get more than one puncture between friends.

TORQ ENERGY BAR OR BOOST

  • Can be really good after a fall, when adrenaline is making the body shake and feel a bit weird, some sugar or energy food can settle things nicely sometimes.
  • If you have one last hill and it happens to be bigger than you thought, it's a huge help to know you have a bar in the bag to give you that boost, works psychologically too .

QUICK LINK FOR BIKE CHAIN

  • Can repair a broken or twisted chain (check you have the correct one for your chain before leaving). 

*If you're interested in any of these products, or want me to personally help you out with putting together a kit, I'm happy to help! Just pop down to the shop and ask for Luke. :)
