This bike impressed all the testers with its sensible component choice, lightweight, stealth matte-black carbon frame and variable suspension, making it practical for XC races or all-mountain rides.
Brandon Semenuk is in Virgin, Utah. Check out his run at Red Bull Rampage. Apparently, he's also a bad ass at rally racing.
Check out the Contour Nepal edit from the award-winning bike movie ‘Where The Trail Ends.’ See just how gnarly the mountains are in this remote area as the athletes battle the elevation that has them gasping like fish out of water.
