Drop-off

(Sport: Mountain Biking)

Definition

Obstacle where the trail drops vertically. It may only be a few inches or considerably more. Riding drop-offs requires considerable skill, often needing the rider to raise the front wheel of the bike while letting the rear wheel touch down first to ensure a smooth landing. Drop-offs differ from jumps that the riders gain no height negotiating them, but literally drop off to the lower level.
