Downhill/ Freeride Bikes
Best suited for gravity riding like the Northstar Bike Park, or shuttling freeride trails. These 8” travel slacked-out bikes come equipped with standard heavy duty DH bike features such as dual crown forks, chain guide, coil-over rear suspension and 2 ply tires. These are the only bikes we demo that we allow to be taken to the Northstar bike park. If you are going Northstar, you need one of these bikes to fully enjoy your experience.
We recommend that you bring knee and elbow pads at the minimum. If you don’t have a Full Face helmet, we will loan you one at no charge with your DH demo. (Bikes to be included in this list are the Rocky Mountain Flatline, the Rocky Mountain Maiden, the Norco Aurums, the KHS DH300.)
Enduro-style Trail Bikes
Best Suited for hard core trail riding where climbing ability is important but descending is where your heart is. These 6-6 1/2” travel trail bikes come equipped with all the features of an Enduro bike such as lightweight air suspension, dropper post, tubeless 27.5” wheels with aggressive tires, 1X11 drivetrain. Though we don’t allow these bikes to be ridden at Northstar, they are very capable on shuttle runs of the Tahoe Truckee Super D, Tyrolean Downhill, Mills Peak, etc. Also ideal for the aggressive up and down riding the Truckee Tahoe area is famous for like Yogi Bear, Hole in the Ground, the Animal, and the Tahoe and Donner Rim trails. (Bikes included in this list are the Rocky Mountain Altitude, the Santa Cruz Bronson, the Ibis Mojo HD3, the Norco Range.)
All Mountain XC Trail Bikes
Best Suited for all purpose trail riding where going up makes you smile as much as descending.
These 5-5 1/2” travel trail bikes come equipped with a lot of the same features as our Enduro bikes, just less travel. Features may include air sprung suspension, dropper post, 27.5 or 29” tubeless wheels, and either 1X11 or 2X10 drivetrains. Ideal for everyday all day rides typical of the Truckee Tahoe area, such as Sawtooth Ridge, the Commemorative Emigrant Trail, the Great Flume Trail, etc. (Bikes included in this list are the Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt, the Rocky Mountain Instinct, Santa Cruz 5010, the Ibis Mojo 3, the Norco Sight.)
