We all have been through a rough time, dealing with guilt after a binge eating episode. Even worse, it can prompt your motivation and self-confidence to tank, sometimes leading to an endless cycle that can completely obstruct your progress.

However, this doesn’t have to be the cause that makes you feel incredibly frustrating. Less than a week till we welcome a brand new year, you may have attempted to keep a fitness resolution in the past in order to feel fit and healthy. To really let 2019 be the year you finally take charge of your fitness, it’s important to really put your mind to it.

Your ideal workout fit

When it comes to sticking to a fitness resolution, it’s all about finding your ideal workout fit. Other’s could be riding a horse, but ours is riding a bike. Getting started is the biggest hurdle. For some people, wearing the proper apparels can help them get in the mood. For us, getting the right bicycle can quickly get our body moving.

If your New Year’s resolution is buying a mountain bike, this guide might be useful for you. If you haven’t discovered the workout method that you enjoy and works best for you, this guide might change your mind and help you settle on one.

If you are looking for an affordable, efficient two-wheel machine, a carbon hardtail might be the bike for you. TRS Phantom Hardtail Bike not only makes a good companion for your weekend ride, but also a great adventure bike for touring.

Hardtail is the name given to mountain bikes that feature front suspension, but no rear suspension. It works just like any ordinary mountain bike, but it is lighter, simpler, less expensive, and more durable.

Made of carbon fiber, TRS Phantom is merely 12.5kg, generally lighter than a comparable full-suspension frame. If you do lots of climbing or spend lots of time in the saddle, the weight saving can make a difference to your rides.

Ride quality

TRS Phantom can feel more responsive when pedaling. The lack of rear suspension creates a more efficient-feeling pedaling platform so acceleration and power feels immediate. If you like long rides that include climbs at altitude or steep sections, you will appreciate the 2×11 gearing which will give you the extra responsiveness, stability, albeit losing some traction without the rear suspension.

Maintenance and Durability

TRS Phantom comes in HUTCHINSON COBRA Hardskin 27.5-inch wheels, with multiple knobs to optimize the traction on dry terrain. Low knobs on top for efficiency and low rolling resistance and high lateral knobs for excellent grip that holds its line in turns. Sidewalls in snakeskin-like look for high puncture resistance.

In addition to achieving efficient power transfer and highly responsive braking, the Shimano Deore XT M8000 Series sets a whole new standard for this bike. The rider-tuned gear combinations put riding into superior performance. It creates toughness and reliability on the hardest trails, enhancing target segment from cross-country, enduro, to all mountains.
