How To Ride Berms Faster!

Published on February 8th 2024


Learning to corner is one of the most important skills in MTB! Utilizing berms is key to mastering corners! To a non-mountain biker, they are just mounds of dirt that vaguely resemble a corner, but to us mountain bikers they are much more than that. Angling the ground allows you to lean more while keeping the tread of your tyre in contact with the ground. Rich Payne shows you how to utilize these useful piles of dirt to improve your cornering and get down the trail faster than ever!
