*Jumps are one of the greatest joys in mountain biking, but not all bikes are built for jumping. If this is something you are looking to do, it is important to ensure you have the right bike. We would recommend looking at the Giant Talon 2 and Liv Tempt 2 or above if you are planning on doing any jumps on your bike and know that each bike has it’s limit for how much jumping it can handle. Chat to us if jumping is something you are planning to do so we can recommend a bike that is suitable.
