I've been riding for about 5-6 years, and can speed through tech, can do hips, speed-jumps 5-8 meters... but every time theres a jump with a steep lip, or involves me going quite high, i keep coming off-axis/ tilt mid-air and its starting to mess with my confidence, desperately need help how do i stop this, and jump normally?

    Have you had any coaching, if not, that will be your best option. If its messing with your confidence, park the ego and go back to basics, go small, 100% right, 100% of the time, 100% confident and relaxed before progressing back to bigger jumps.

  • To the side... so if u we’re looking from infront of my handle bars I’d be rotating clockwise/anti-clockwise Apr 20, 2021 at 6:57

    About 8 months late to the party but: Are you riding with platform pedals or SPD pedals? (My rear-most/stretched leg pulls my bike off-axis when using SPD pedals) Are the off-axis always to the same side?
