The Floaters
The drop-off....spectacular and not too difficult to learn. An absolute must for every discipline. The better you control the drop-off, the higher your drops will (read: can) become.
* Make sure you have enough speed (!)

* Just before the drop you raise your handlebars in one smooth movement (pull) and bring your weight back

* Make sure that your weight stays backwards during the 'air-time'; your rear wheel should hit the ground first

* Squeeze your rear brake slightly, so you will 'automatically' tilt forward again upon landing

* Just before impact, you 'push' your rear wheel onto the ground with your legs and smoothly transfer your weight forward (work from your knees)

* When landing, you absorb the impact with your whole body; you spring, as it were, from back to front

* Use your rear brake when landing, but be careful! Too much braking means you can flip forward....

Active Drop

1. Drive in
When approaching, 2 points are very important, namely the speed and the dynamics of the jump. The speed may be slightly lower than with the floater, if you jump off dynamically. Ie arms and legs deeply bent.
2. Dismount
The more your arms and legs are bent, the more powerful you can push off at the edge of the drop. You can practice this movement well with the Bunny Hop.
3. Flight phase
If you have a powerful jump, you have a moment of weightlessness, in which you can perform a trick.
4. Landing
You must be back in basic position before landing. This guarantees a stable landing and supports the suspension of the bicycle, your body has at least 30 cm of travel.
