Bicycling on off-road trails is known as mountain biking. In order to navigate through rough terrain, you need endurance, speed, balance, and technical skills. As opposed to road bikers, mountain bikers pursue obstacles and see the world as a natural and challenging playground with winding trails.

Choosing a new mountain bike can be a daunting task, even for seasoned mountain bikers, as there are so many options. A good beginner mountain bike needs good component packages, predictable handling, and a decent price.

 Types Of Budget Mountain Bikes   

Ragley Marley 1.0

 It’s amazing how good and affordable bikes have become, allowing entry-level riders to gain access to tech without forking over a lot of cash. By combining the progressive geometry with the smooth Marzocchi fork, riders with no experience on rough terrain can gain confidence and learn new skills. And this bike comes under the best mountain bikes.This Shimano Deore drivetrain has already established itself as a reliable budget groupset. It comes with a wide range of 11-speed cassette and reliable performance and a wide range 11-speed cassette. 

Orbea Laufey H30

The hardtail from Orbea features a 140mm fork and a dropper post for aggressive trail riding. Beginner riders can quickly improve their skills without outmatching their bike’s components because of the quality specification. 

The triple-butted aluminum frame is equipped with a Shimano Deore drivetrain and Shimano M201 hydraulic disc brakes. You can grip the trail surface with Orbea’s tubeless-ready OC1 29er wheels. They come with 2.6-inch Maxxis tires. 

Vitus Escarpe 29 CR

Vitus is known for making great bikes at a competitive price, however, with the Escarpe 29 CR the company has truly outdone itself. With a solid feature list, the 140mm trail bike is a phenomenal value. You are not only getting front and rear suspension from Marzocchi, but also RockShox, Shimano Deore 11-speed drivetrain, and a dropper post, but the front triangle is carbon – that’s right, carbon on a full suspension trail bike for under $3,000!

This is useless if the bike doesn’t ride well, and Vitus has this covered as well. With years of bike design experience applied to the geometry and suspension kinematics, the Escarpe climbs just as well as descends, so you know you have a bike that keeps up with your skills as you improve. And now adays you don’t worry to transport your bikes, hitch bike rack are the perfect way to go.

Commencal Meta HT AM Origin

The Andorran-based company sells its bikes through its own website, offering well-specced, rowdy rides at a discount compared to other brands.In terms of terminology, Combecal classifies the Meta HT as an enduro bike, likely due to its 160mm fork and its slack 65-degree headtube angle. In order to tackle an EWS (Enduro World Series) course, a rear shock will be necessary, but the Meta HT is a sturdy hardtail with a capable descender as well. Geometry encourages you to descend at light speed while providing enough front suspension to clear you out of trouble.

Featuring a RockShox 35 Silver fork for a great price, this year it has been upgraded with SRAM 12-speed gearing. It is the only bike without a dropper post.
