What is better for trial riding?

Hi, I was just wondering what is better for trial riding. Single suspension or dual suspension? Any feedback would be great thanks!

are you asking about Trials or Trail.

I know it says trials, could be a typo.

TRAIL riding is riding your bike on the trails. Mostly thought of as Cross country riding.
TRIALS is a sturdier bike that people do all that fancy crap
