Alpinstore offers you masks specially designed for mountain biking. Through their technical characteristics, mountain bike masks ensure more incredible descents than ever with a clear and precise vision. But why choose a mask and not glasses? We'll tell you more ...
The mountain bike is a bike to go to the assault of nature. From its beginnings in the 1950s, the mountain bike was designed to get off the beaten track and overcome obstacles. It was in 1970 that the discipline made its mark with the first timed mountain bike descents. Little by little, this practice becomes more popular and sees the first mountain bikes (MTB) manufactured.
This bike comes with all-terrain tires, wider and notched to grip any type of road. Its fork is equipped with suspensions to absorb shocks and be more efficient during the descent.
This bike is of course adapted to the disciplines practiced. Today, the best known one is the classic mountain bike, also known as Crosscountry, which consists of racing on a defined circuit, on which there are demanding climbs and descents. But beware! Whatever the practice, it is important to have adapted equipment.
The mountain bike mask for extra protection
Today all riders wear a helmet to protect their head. But the question often arises whether to wear sunglasses or a mask instead? The answer is simple ...
The ATV goggle provides complete protection for your face as it integrates perfectly with your full face helmet. Whether downhill or uphill, rocks and dust fly and it seems difficult to perform when we are hindered. Therefore, the ATV goggle allows you to isolate your eyes from the outside elements and therefore to be able to stay focused on what you are doing.
Note that a mountain bike mask is different from a ski mask! Indeed, the optimal ventilation and its finer foam, allows to have a more pleasant bike goggle when the temperature is high. Thus, for example the glass of the Poc ATV mask is suitable for this practice. It will therefore not be protective against the sun's rays as dark screens could penalize you during your race.
