How to ride hip jumps on your mountain bike

Whether it’s a long low step down or a tall booter that sends you sky high, hip jumps are insanely fun to hit on your mountain bike. But the move requires some skill, which some of us may not have developed just yet. For those in need of a skills primer, check out this video from our friends at the Global Mountain Bike Network. It illustrates the basics of getting that hip jump dialed so that you can exaggerate the technique to hit bigger and bigger jumps. As always, start small with these skills and work them up to larger jumps. As a rule, if you’re comfortable jumping the distance in question as a tabletop jump, you can jump that size hip. After all, you’re taking off at the same speed and trajectory to begin with. Have fun!
