Sporadic jumps are also included in the field of use of these STEVENS bikes. But particularly inexperienced riders doing jumps may land inappropriately, thus increasing the acting forces significantly which may result in damage and injuries. We recommend that you train your skills in a riding technique course. If necessary, ask your STEVENS dealer to inspect your STEVENS bike at shorter intervals than according to the service and maintenance schedule.
