Down-Country Vs Trail Full Suspension Mountain Bikes | What’s The Difference & What’s Right For You?

Mountain biking loves a label (and doesn’t, in equal measure) but with the emergence of the longer, slacker and more capable cross country bikes that aren’t as burly as their trail bike brethren, the time is right to explore the topic – and its various labels. In this video, Henry and Neil explain what a ‘Down Country’ bike is exactly, and how it differs from a trail bike (and, of course, a pure cross country bike), and what bike they think is best for them.
