STEVENS enduro and all mountain bikes are designed for off-road use (Alpcross etc.). STEVENS bikes of this category can be used on surfaces permitted for bikes of the categories 1, 3, 4 und 5. Furthermore, STEVENS bikes of this category are suitable for very rough and partly blocked terrain with steeper slopes and higher speeds as a result thereof. Regular jumps by experienced riders are no problem for these STEVENS bikes. The regular and durable use of these STEVENS bikes in bike parks, must however be excluded by STEVENS. In addition, these STEVENS bikes are not suitable for tricks, stair riding etc., training and competitive use in the categories freeride, dirt, downhill.
For full suspension STEVENS mountain bikes trailers are not permitted.
Due to their design and fittings, STEVENS mountain bikes of the category 6 are not always suitable for being used on public roads. If you want to use them on public roads, these bikes must be fitted with the prescribed equipment. Observe the traffic rules when riding on public roads. For more information see chapter “Legal Requirements for Riding on Public Roads” in your comprehensive STEVENS user manual on the enclosed CD-ROM.
Due to the higher stresses, these STEVENS bikes of category 6 should be checked for possible damage after every ride. Two inspections per year at least carried out by your STEVENS dealer are obligatory.
The mountain bike itself describing one particular type of bike does not exist any longer. Various types of mountain bikes for specific uses have been developed instead. Be sure to use your STEVENS mountain bike only according to its intended use. Observe the traffic rules when riding on public roads.
