Average Mountain Bike Weight (With 56 Examples)

Mountain biking can be an extremely competitive sport, where seemingly simple factors can have a massive impact on the final outcome. This is why mountain bike manufacturers pay close attention to detail when making their bikes.

One such factor is the weight of the bike. On average, mountain bikes weigh about 28 pounds. This weight, however, will vary depending on the function of the bike, which means all mountain bikes, trail bikes, cross country bikes, and so on will be weighted differently.
