Mountain Bike Core Skills - 1 Day

Our Core Skills MTB course will give you the basic skills to get out in the woods tackling technical trails with confidence and commitment.

Following training you will see an immediate improvement in your riding and a boost in confidence. You'll understand how changes in your body position, footwork and where you are looking affect the way your bike behaves on the trails. You'll be able to tackle steeper terrain, corner with greater control and negotiate small trail obstacles with ease.

So what are the Core Skills ?

Weight Shift and the Cone of Movement- If you don't move you will fall off, this is where riding starts.
Track Stands - The ability to balance, the most important skill to learn when it comes to riding a mountain bike.
Manual Front Wheel Lifts - The ability to lift the front wheel over an obstacle using body position and weight shift.
Power Assisted Front Wheel Lifts - The ability to lift the front wheel at slow speed over an obstacle whilst climbing.
Rear Wheel Lifts - The ability to lift the rear wheel over an obstacle.
As well as the 4 core skills, we give you a thorough breakdown and understanding of Climbing, Descending and Braking.

Instructor Ratio: 1:6 max
Course Cost: £80 for 1 day (Over 18's only)

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Estimated Delivery Dates

Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
