Semi-rigid MTB: the ideal compromise for many mountain bikers
The semi-rigid MTB is composed of a rigid frame (without rear suspension) and a telescopic fork. These are the MTB models that are most often found on paths and singles. They provide a good compromise between cushioning (and therefore comfort) and weight.
For the rest of the components the semi-rigid MTB is close to the full-suspension. The 100% rigid models are now very rare, they are only found on fatbikes or cheap mountain bikes.
Today in the MTB market, there are 3 bike standards: the 26 inches, the 27.5 inches and the 29 inches which correspond to the size of the wheels. Depending on your practice and the terrain you choose, you'll need the 26 inch for precision steering and the 29 for better traction and performance on rolling terrain. The 27.5 inches is in-between.
