At Westbrook Cycles, we stock and supply an excellent range of Carbon Fibre Mountain Bikes - covering both full suspension and hardtail mountain bike frames. Although in years gone by, Carbon Fibre was an expensive and exotic purchase - the more widespread use of carbon fibre in bike frames, as well as easier manufacturing methods has brought the price of carbon fibre mountain bikes down considerably.
There are a massive number of advantages to choosing a mountain bike with a carbon fibre frame. One of the best and most exciting reasons is how the manufacturing techniques involved in a carbon fibre bike, allows bike manufacturers to design and manufacture frames in all kinds of shapes - so if you see a mountain bike with extreme looking shape and geometry, the chances are that it is a carbon fibre bike.
Another huge advantage of a carbon fibre mountain bike, is the weight saving properties of such a light frame material. The facts of the matter are, the lighter the bike - the quicker the bike is, which is massively important especially in cross country mountain biking. An added performance benefit of a carbon fibre mountain bike is it’s stiffness to weight ratio, when compared to alloy and steel bikes. The stiffer the rider, the sharper the response of the bike. At the same time, for downhill mountain bikes, carbon fibre can provide extra flex for helping to soak up big impacts and drops.
You can view our complete range of carbon fibre bikes on this page, encompassing Scott Carbon Fibre Bikes as well as Giant Carbon Fibre bikes. If you have any question about carbon fibre as a frame choice, or which mountain bike is best for you - please get in touch and we will be happy to advise.
