Rocky Mountain Altitude 790 MSL Preview

02.18.2013 //

Rocky completely redesigned the Altitude line this year. There are five new models in the lineup—three of them bearing carbon somewhere on the frames, two others rocking all-aluminum chassis. The 790 is, in fact, a total carbon fiber dance party (both the front and rear triangles are made of the stuff).

Think Southern California must be lacking in quality trails? Think again–it’s not all boob jobs, smog and traffic jams. Kyle Strait and Tyler McCaul pummel the fine trails within a pedal of Laguna Beach in this video from GT Bicycles.

Sure, it looks like a simple dirt-jumper helmet. Get the Segment into your hands, however, and it’s clear there’s a surprising bit of technology going into this lid.

I completely understand why people feel that the Pacific Northwest is overexposed…I just finished watching this video and am struck yet again by how amazing this chunk of soggy dirt is. Oh, and Reece Wallace is absolutely rippin’ in this clip.

Exclusive: 2013 Bible Review – Kona Process DL

02.14.2013 //

Every feature on the trail felt more doable on the Kona. In the strictest sense of the word, it was certainly the most all-mountain of the bikes we had on test.

As usual, the folks at Red Bull go deep with their Chronicle series–this time around, delving into Kurt Sorge’s life (how he got his start, why he calls Nelson home and how he goes about preparing for events like Rampage).

Exclusive: 2013 Bible Review – BMC Fourstroke FS01 29

02.11.2013 //

The FS01’s geometry is set somewhere between ‘trail’ and ‘cross-country,’ making it eager to rally through corners and manual through
whoops when the track points down. Where other cross-country bikes might start feeling sketchy, this bike just wants to go faster. Our test model broke, but BMC states that this is a first-time failure for this model. Check out the review for more.

Her crouch is like a freerider approaching the canyon lip, followed by an explosion. No wasted movement, no fear. Her claws, I now understand, are like pinner pedals. Her long tail is like a rider getting really far behind the rear wheel.
