About Trials Riding
Trials Riding is often regarded as the most technical and difficult branch of mountain biking, requiring a thorough understanding of body language, balance, and bike handling techniques.

Beyond your "single-track business as usual"
If you've ever been tempted by trials riding or if you are frustrated about having to dismount when you come across single-track obstacles, this guide will offer you an excellent complement of information in order to tune your skills far beyond "single-track business as usual", whether you ride on natural terrain or favour gritty urban landscapes.

This manual is a natural extension of the TrashZen online resources, fully re-edited and easy to carry around so you can refer to it where and when you need it most, in your favourite riding zone. It is essential reading for new trials riders and anyone with an interest in the elaborate and counter-intuitive techniques of Trials Riding.
