Airtime (Jumps & Drops)
Mountain Bike Skills Course

Confidence when your wheels leave the ground

Do you wish you had the confidence to get airborne on your mountain bike? Do you find yourself avoiding jumps and drops? The Mission mountain bike jumps course could be exactly what you need.

The aim of the airtime course is to give you the techniques required for getting comfortable with your wheels leaving the ground. By the end of the course you’ll have a good understanding of how to tackle different types of jumps and drop-offs.

What to expect

Expect a day packed with useful knowledge that you can take to the trails whenever you ride.

You’ll receive plenty of feedback, and video analysis to super-charge your learning experience..

What you'll learn

Keep yourself safe by assessing run-ins, takeoffs and landings before you drop in.

How to gain extra height or distance on jumps.

How to gauge the right speed.

Understanding the different types of jump and drop techniques and when to use them.

The MTB Hopper

I’m super excited to introduce the MTB Hopper to the Mission MTB learning arsenal.

This is a superb piece of equipment for learning to jump. For the airtime course it’s placed on a flat, grassy field. No pushing back up steep 4X tracks means more practice for you. More practice leads to super fast progression!

The MTB Hopper has a really forgiving profile and when it’s set up as a tabletop you can gradually build your speed and confidence throughout the session.
