Want to Start Riding? We Found a Beginner-friendly Mountain Bike for You
Mountain biking, arguably one of the most popular riding styles, may sound hardcore, and it can be if you want it to. But there are different environments and trails for every skill level. Whether you’ve been tackling rough terrain for years or just happily blazing through mellow trails as a pastime, there’s a bike and an off-road experience just for you.
That said, if you’re only starting on your cycling journey and beginning to explore the great outdoors, we suggest snagging an entry-level mountain bike that boasts of quality and durability—but one that can still deliver a premium cycle experience at half the cost.
A brand that’s been getting rave reviews from cycling enthusiasts and pros alike is Trinx, thanks, in part, to its range of affordable cycling gear, which is designed in Italy and manufactured here in the country. Their portfolio includes mid- to high-grade mountain bikes as well as road and city bikes, children’s bikes, and e-bikes. More than marketing their products, though, Trinx is also focused on spreading word about the riding culture.
One for the ladies
A new steed on your trail adventures can be the Trinx Nana N700, which is specifically made for women riders, with knobby Kenda tires in the classic, smaller, and more maneuverable 26-inch size. These Kenda tires perform well in both dry and wet trails.
At P18,450 (nearly not as much as other rides in the market today), the Trinx Nana N700 is equipped with notable shifting gears courtesy of Shimano Altus components and dependable RSX disc brakes.
ICYDK—Shimano has been producing biking components since 1978. Originally developed solely for full-fledged sports bikes, the pioneering components brand has since shifted its character towards making entry-level components series for mountain bikes (MTBs) under the “ride light” concept, which promotes the enjoyment of sports bikes among the general public.
It’s now a highly cost-effective model featuring functionality that enable any type of rider, even those new to MTBs, to easily use bicycles for commuting and other daily use.
Almost all of the Trinx Nana N700’s components are made of alloy (aluminum), from its frame and seat post to its handlebar and stem. Without sacrificing too much in quality, these alloy parts are strong and sturdy, while also maintaining a low price point.
This alloy also makes the N700 a lightweight companion on any type of terrain or trail—whether you’re bombing descents, biking uphill, combing through rocky surfaces, or simply wheezing past city roads. It’s a do-everything type of MTB you’d want to have in your cycling arsenal.
Ladies, if you’re in the market for that unicorn “starter” bike—one that’s both affordable and robust, the Trinx Nana N700 is worth taking a look at.
