Beginner & New Bike Help

Right, im new here but i hope ive come to the right place. Me and my bro are looking to take on some mtb and downhilling only green and blue tracks, and i have a couple of questions.
For the above type of riding are V-Brakes alright? Or would disc brakes be recommended?

I also have 4 bikes in mind and wondered if anyone could shed some light on a good bike to get me going. The bikes i have found are:

Carrera Valour
Falcon Radon
Carrera Vengeance
Carrera Vulcan

These can all be purchased from Halfords and my budget lies somewhere within the price of the bikes mentioned above. I hope someone can help and perhaps shed some light on the kind of bike i need .
