6 steps for effective cornering on your E-MTB

  1. Look well ahead down the trail in front of you
  2. Start braking and managing your speed before you enter the corner
  3. Look round the corner at your exit point
  4. Turn your shoulders in the direction you’re travelling
  5. Allow the bike to roll smoothly round the corner, avoiding braking if you can
