Freeride/ Big Hit / Hucking. Freeride, as the name suggests is a do anything discipline that encompasses everything from downhill racing without the clock to jumping, riding North Shore style (elevated trails made of interconnecting bridges and logs), and generally riding trails and/or stunts that require more skill and aggressive techniques than XC. Freeride bikes are generally heavier and more amply suspended than their XC counterparts, but usually retain much of their climbing ability. It is up to the rider to build his or her bike to lean more toward a preferred level of aggressiveness. Slopestyle type riding is an increasingly popular genre that combines big air, stunt ridden freeride with BMX style tricks. Slopestyle courses are usually constructed at already established mountain bike parks and include jumps, large drops, quarter pipes, and other wooden obstacles. There are always multiple lines through a course and riders compete for judges points by choosing lines that highlight their particular skills. A typical freeride bike is hard to define, but 13 18 kilos (30 40) lbs with 150 250 millimeters (6 10inches) of suspension front and rear.
