The cockpit on your mountain bike is comprised of your handlebars, grips, stem and brake levers. It’s basically your touch points, your controls that you need in order to pilot your mountain bike on the trail.
So you best make sure it’s set up properly!

In this video Scotty goes through some pointers for setting up the cockpit on your mountain bike. From adjusting the angle of the brake levers to move your stance further forwards to rolling your bars back to relax your riding position. It could be a minor change to your controls that makes all the difference to your riding!
