Great video mate! Thanks for all the knowledge shared here. I only started my MTB “life” and bought a hard tail. Already realised that I should start saving for a full suspension ASAP
That was very informative…Thanks
My local downhill park doesn’t follow this guide one bit for greens, blues and blacks. All the jumps on blue trials are knuckles. So not a full gap but certainly not a flat tabletop
I wish i could have a bike like that
from your video I think I ride between blue and black. I do the drops and the ride arounds on the jumps
What is the best travel a full suspension bike should have for each level (green, blue, black)?
Very nice 👍👌
I want mountain bike but im poor paul give me bike im from the Philippines
Great friend ..amazing
Never lose the stoke.
I just bought a 2021 Giant trance x 2. Pretty stocked.
I should come over from Europe to see what the difference is between the systems.
when i first went my friend decided it would be a good idea to take me on a double black tech dh trail. proably not the best idea
I made a two hour beginner course two days ago (it was just amazing and hell this sport needs more girls ✌🏻).
When I looked at a green trail the day before, I was like: am never gonna ride that.
Next day: I was riding a blue trail in my second lap.
It was so much fun! Why does winter and bad weather has to start now? Couldn’t I have decided to go mountainbiking earlier? 😩😆
And when I look at the rating you presented, I rather rode a black one (Germany). 😍
I started mountainbiking in my area (middle europe near switzerland) and the trails in proximity are rooty as heck. So i basically started with complete tech xd
dam im good enough for double black trails
now i just have to get a better bike, my bike is too big for me, only 120mm travel (full suspension) and the fork is coil so it sucks, and my tires have no grip
i really dont know now if i should save for the stitched 720 or torque AL 6 xD
Your videos are super high quality! Thanks so much Paul
Me and my mom on are first ride we’re like f**k it and we went to blue
I think you might need to adjust your suspension, you bottomed out on a pretty small drop on a fox 36, that’s not normal…
great video 🤙
Technically for dirt merchant (without drop) or a line could be a green trail if you just roll all the jumps
hardtail slander <<
Oh how I wish the Philippines have trails like those :’)
Paul, I tried to get the 30% off Kenda with you link, but no discount is applied.. Help
9:56 take this out of context. lol (please don’t)
It boggles my mind that people find berms intimidating. I find flat turns way scarier, but maybe it’s cuz I’m going faster?
you forgot red (ok you mentioned them later:) )
easy black or hard blue… you mean red in the uk?
The trail system I rode first hid there one green run so I dropped in on the same trail seen in my profile pic, I surprisingly didn’t die.
I should have watched th is before doing a black on my hardtail and breaking my collarbkne
I kind of started off on a red trail, but honestly it’s more of a mix between blue/black/red
Hello Paul. What make of van did you and Jack convert in England for your European tour thank you. Patrick from North West England.
I’ve been riding for 2 years and a half and half flow Black is perfect for me and blue is just pure fun
This is awesome, thank you!
you also forgot purple… which is easier than green and usually generally pertains to fire roads
Good job Paul.
I’m 100% confident that a full suspension bike would be more enjoyable on more technical trails like black diamonds, but if a person has never done any mountain biking whatsoever, it’s also a lot of money to spend initially on a bike if you’re not sure you’re gonna go through with it.
What does the White & Orange options mean?
there should be a difficulty above that of pro-line where you require trial skills and some decent red bull rampage madness skills called "world-class line". There are many pros out there but only a few are world class
When is the last time you rode a hardtail?
Usually when you ride a hard tail you feel alot more of the trail due to its increase rigidity compared to a full suspension.
Thanks for the video
Bring back the Full Punter socks, Paul! Or – have any extras lying around? 😉

Do you know how many people started mtb because of this guy
Excellent video Punter.
As a British rider id say over here your green is a blue and your blue a red (but this is just an opinion don’t shoot me!). Great vid!
9:40 I guess a lot of people crashed into that tree 😂
lol, dont think ive ever seen those outside of downhill parks in california
Bro can I be real…. this is a click bait video if you are biking and have no idea what the tails difficulty is you should not ride.
