    The wheels touching down simultaneously. Using upper body and legs to absorb the impact.

    Start small , repeat until comfortable. Go larger , repeat until comfortable. Then add style.
    Yeah I gotta question. You got any excuses tonight Roy ? -Antonio Tarver

    There is room for it all, just ride what you like to on what you like to...that's freeriding. -rbn14

    aren't you supposed to land drops to flat back wheel first?

    in all the videos I have seen of urban/trials riders who do drops to flat the back wheel lands first.

    the most important thing when doing drops is keeping yourself relaxed so that your arms/legs absorb the impact of the landing. If you tense up in the air, landing will not feel good (especialy if you have a HT).
