DH is short for downhill.

 

Mountain biking has progressed very much like skiing, where you have XC (cross country) and DH (downhill), with very specific bikes for each.

 

Many ski areas have opened up their lifts in the summer for DH riding, with special trails through the trees and out on the runs with jumps, drops, berms, etc. Riders often use full armour and full-face helmets for protection. I actually use a motocross full-face (seen in the pics) for max protection.

 

DH bikes have only very high gears (only a single big front chainring so no climbing gears), lots of suspension travel (7 to 9 inches, or up to 12 inches in some cases) and are very burly. They weigh 40-45 lbs or more, depending.

 

A good XC bike is under 25 lbs for full suspension, or closer to 21 for a really light hardtail, so half the weight of a DH bike.

Oh, I should add that there are also many riders and bikes who play in the zone between DH and XC, using long-travel suspension bikes that are lighter than DH bikes and have a good range of gears for climbing. These bikes are heavier than XC bikes, but can take quite a bit more abuse. This type of bike is often called a freeride or all-mountain bike.

 

Then there are the jump bikes, dual slalom/mountaincross bikes, road bikes, cyclocross bikes, touring bikes, hybrids, comfort bikes, offroad unicycles... ;)
