How To Brake To Go Faster | MTB Skills

Braking to ride your mountain bike faster sounds counterintuitive, but when done properly will actually make you a smoother and faster MTB rider. You’ll find that knowing when and how much to brake becomes a subconscious skill over time, a bit like knowing when to change gear. Precise braking will allow you to have better grip, and better control. Neil shows you how 🤘

Think of it as braking not to slow down, but braking to not speed up. In some cases you won’t actually need to brake at all, but should instead focus upon line choice and understanding the limits of your grip.
