With the rise of cycling, the sales and use of mountain biking is also on the rise.
Compared with the same period in 2019, the number of mountain bike trails in the United States has increased by 100 percent to more than 500 percent. And bike makers continue to surge in sales, from entry-level mountain bike choices to the most expensive boutique brands. While cycling has enjoyed a sales boost during the pandemic, mountain biking may provide a lasting fuel for the surge of interest.

"Epidemics connect people to local pathways in dramatic ways," says David.
Wiens, executive director of the International Mountain Biking Association in Colorado. We're hearing a lot of new users, including families getting outdoors together. Families are mountain biking in ways that have never been done before, and people of all ages and walks of life are realizing the benefits of having great mountain biking trails nearby."

Mountain bike sales have mimicked the bike industry -- and the outdoor industry more broadly --" through the roof, "Wiens says. NPD Sports reported that sales rose 117% in April and May compared with 2019 figures. Suppliers sometimes have to work just to keep inventory on hand. But equally tellingly, local bike shops have been inundated with service jobs and sales of parts and accessories, evidence that consumers have pulled out old bikes ready for the trail or that enough rides need repairing.
Brands across the mountain biking spectrum are enjoying growth. Trek spokesman Travis Ott said there was a rush for early childhood bikes, then hybrids and mountain hardtires for less than $1,000, then hard tires for more than $1,000, until full suspension, electric bikes and the high-end wave began. Cannondale sees a similar trend, says spokeswoman Sofia Whitcombe. The Connecticut-based brand has been able to track a significant increase in new users visiting the mountain bike page on its website, with new sales driven by new riders by a ratio of 60 to 40. However, this is in favour of riders who are already looking to upgrade their bikes in the sport.

Elorie Slater, a spokeswoman for Arizona-based mountain bike boutique Pivot Cycles, says the company's entire line of high-end carbon-fiber bikes is in the same demand. Mountain bike, she says, is part of a larger way of life, many people also participated in the high-end bicycle market other adventure sports or travel, and now some of the activities of usability is restricted, for example, going on a trip to Europe this summer without family or large surfing weekend in Mexico - some big spending of the plan may no longer occur. This could lead to alternative decisions on disposable income, while high-end bikes are given priority as access to outdoor activities is relatively easy to achieve.

"With limited ways to spend their disposable income - no concerts, sporting events, fewer holidays - some cyclists feel they have extra money to spend on new bikes, "Whitcombe said.

Rene Costales, senior category marketing manager for REI Action Movement, said mountain bike sales have been trending positive for several seasons among national retailers in Washington, but demand for mountain bikes under $1,000 really kicks in when an epidemic hits, such as the popular Co-op Cycle DRT 1.1. Apparel and accessories, which complement entry-level bikes, have seen similar growth, but since then the mountain bike category has grown by triple digits compared to last year, in line with total bike sales and well ahead of entry-level options.

"For us, all of the segments are still showing positive trends, including higher priced e-bikes and associated accessories and components, "Costales said. This is a positive trend across the board, for reasons that have been amply demonstrated when physical distance is a problem, and cycling is a good activity."
