Category: Dirt Jumps
Difficulty: Level 4 (of 4)

The tailwhip is a dirt jump trick where the frame is rotated once 360 degrees around the head tube. More precisely, the frame is swung around the head tube while both hands hold the handlebars. A combination of no-footed jump and swing of the frame.

The impulse for the rotation is started by the left or right leg, depending on the direction you want to swing the tail around. You can increase the impulse with a movement on the handlebars. Stop the rotation with your leg.
