A full suspension mountain bike, is a mountain bike which features both a suspension fork on the front (the same as is found on ‘hardtail’ mountain bikes’), but also comes equipped with a frame comprised of two pieces, a front and rear triangle, which are connected via a system of pivots. In essence, this allows the two triangles to operate independently of each other, and this operation is controlled by a shock absorber.
