E-MTB – Mountain Bike Skills Courses

Do you ride an E-MTB and are you looking to improve your Mountain Bike Skills?

Firecrest MTB have used over 25 years of knowledge and experience coaching mountain bikers of all ages and abilities and 4yrs of E-mountain biking to create a Mountain Bike Skills course for E-MTB’ers

E-MTB’s are brilliant – they are opening up mountain biking to new mountain bikers, keeping people riding or just letting riders have more fun out on the trails. Electric Mountain Bike’s make getting out on the trails easy with less effort needed to ride uphill.

We work with you to give you the confidence to get the most from your E-MTB on the technical sections and downhills. Whether it’s carrying more speed through corners, hitting jumps and drops with confidence or making light work of the technical sections we can tailor this course to your personal requirements and you can be safe in the knowledge that underpinning the Skills Training Firecrest MTB provide is a proven ‘Skills System’.
