The biking kit you need.

When you first start out with mountain biking, it can be a bit difficult when you walk into a bike shop to buy your initial mountain bike and see every one of the offered add-ons you'll require when you first start riding.
There are many mountain biking related items that you can buy. Although the sales staff will try to offer you anything they can, the actual thing for those on a budget isn't exactly what's cool, but exactly what add-ons you need to make your rides much more pleasurable and risk-free. By beginning with these, you'll be just fine when you venture out on the trails.

Bike helmet
The bike helmet is the most crucial mountain biking accessory that you can buy. Nobody should ever ride a bike without head protection. There have actually been several individuals who have actually experienced serious head trauma. When it can have been avoided by putting on a helmet. All mountain bike helmets are comfortable and stylish and everybody who rides on the trails should use one. I recommend on with MIPS. This the most advanced head protection technology. Many brand stock this. I currently have a specialized one. 

Mountain bicycle gloves
No matter when you ride in, your hands can take a beating. Beginners will normally keep a death grip on the handlebars, which can be really harsh on their hands causing callous.  When you wipe out, your hands will be the initial thing to strike the ground and everyone crashes at some point. My motto is if you're not flying you're not trying. Mountain bicycle gloves are a must-have accessory, as they will take the beating for you. You can buy these from a few pounds. I love fox ones. 

Mountain bicycle shorts
After the initial few mountain bike rides you take, you'll see that your backside will be very sore. Even though your body will adjust, bike shorts with padding are fantastic to have as they will help to keep the soreness at a bare minimum. You can get shorts that are really comfortable, making them an excellent addition to your mountain biking ride. I recommend spending a bit of money here. Especially if you are a girl. You will thank me. 

Mountain bicycle shoes
Depending on the kind of pedals you have and the kind of riding you do, you'll want to choose your mountain bike shoes accordingly. If your bike the has clipless type of pedals, you'll want to get shoes to accept the special cleat for your pedals. Great mountain bike shoes are sturdy, comfortable, as well as have a stiff sole for better performance when pedalling. Likewise, you should ensure to obtain the right shoe for the terrain you'll be riding in also. My go-to brand is fiveten.

Eye protection
You can go off the trail in a matter of seconds if you end up with something in your eye. Sunglasses or clear lensed glasses can help keep your eyes protected from debris and protect them from the wind. Make certain they are non-breakable when you buy your glasses. I order lots of clear lens safety glasses to use as cheap spares. You can get them on eBay for really cheap. 

Hydration equipment
Having a water bottle or hydration pack with you is definitely an excellent idea. It's really simple to get dehydrated. So you should always bring water with you and consume it on the trail to ensure that your body remains appropriately hydrated at all times. I also like rehydration tablets and powders as it can be so easy when you are enjoying your self to forget to drink enough. 

Biking repair kit
If you do not bring the proper repair kit for your bike, it's simple to get stuck in the bush or on the trail. To be on the safer side, bring a multi-tool designed for bike repair, tire bars and spare inner tube for dealing with flat tires. Of course, you’ll require a bike air pump to inflate your tire tube after you have fixed it. but you can buy super small ones for your pocket.
