As one of the two maneuvers on a mountain bike that get your wheels off the ground in a big way, Drops require a lot of commitment and many people who have tried to learn drops out on the trail have experienced how challenging drops can be when things go well and how painful (or season ending) they can be when they don’t go well. At RideHub we understand how difficult it can be getting over the mental hurdle of launching yourself and your bicycle off a perfectly good obstacle. In this Skills Camp – Drop session, you and 11 other participants will work closely with our expert instructors to learn, develop and ultimately master your mountain bike drop skills.
Probably the biggest hurdle facing most riders attempting to learn drops is that most trail networks don’t have an adequate training area for drops. Many have some form of drop progression area, but they don’t teach you the required skills to safely negotiate the drops. There are also many different ways you can negotiate a drop and it is important for you to know when and where certain techniques make sense. We will learn them all.
Because of this, we have built a modular drop progression system that allows us to control all the variables from take off angle, drop height and landing angle so we can safely develop your drops skills in a fun and exciting group setting. It’s one of the safest and most effective ways to get your drop game on point!
