All Mountain / Enduro

All-mountain Enduro biking is oriented towards downhill on 5-7 inches of suspension travel and stronger components than XC models, while still providing overall weight suitable for climbing and descending on a variety of terrain. There are two formats of Enduro racing. “Big-Mountain” Enduro is mostly similar to a DH course, but is much longer, sometimes taking a full day to complete, incorporates a few climbing sections to keep riders challenged. “Gravity” enduro uses an equal amount uphill and downhill on paper, but the uphill segments are not timed. There is also a third all mountain genre called “super-D” this style of race is more similar to XC, but has sustained climbs followed by sustained descents.
