Video: Race Face Chute

03.12.2013

Wade Simmons and Brett Tippie blow the doors off of winter--snowboarding and ripping trails in a fashion that is just jaw-dropping and which makes doing anything other than riding a bike today seem like cruel and unusual punishment.

Exclusive: 2013 Bible Review – Kona Operator

03.11.2013

Calling a bike ‘vanilla’ is usually an insult, but inthe case of the Kona Operator, it’s just the opposite. This bike is plain, simple and durable, and these traits are exactly why we loved it.

Video: Sam Pilgrim–California 2013

03.10.2013

Just in case you forgot why Sam Pilgrim was in contention for the FMB title in 2012, this video comes along, blows your mind and makes a mockery of gravity. Amazing.

Video: Clarity–An Ice-Biking Session

03.09.2013

It'd be easy to hang up the bike for the winter when you live somewhere frozen solid, bitter cold and just damn unpleasant for a good chunk of the year. That, however, isn't how folks from Michigan roll.

Exclusive Video: Bell’s Full 9 and Super Helmets–The Inside Story

03.07.2013

Over the past decade, Bell's been positioned as the "affordable" brand of helmets while its twin sister, Giro, received the sexy features. That's all changing. Bell's new Full 9 and Super helmet models suggest that Bell is on track to regain some of its former glory as a high-end, no-holds-barred helmet maker. We went inside Bell’s think tank to get the inside story on how a helmet is born: from rough sketch to high-tech brain bucket.

Another Bike Magazine-exclusive video? Yes. With Camaros. It will all make sense soon enough. In the meantime, master thespian, Seb Kemp, gets into character....

Exclusive: 2013 Bible Review – Cannondale Trigger Carbon 1

Cannondale's Trigger Carbon 1 is fast, flickable and tons of fun, though it left some testers wondering whether bigger wheels would make green grass greener.

Video: Chromag–Collectors

03.04.2013

Hardtails, cedars, mist in the trees….lines carved. If this video doesn’t inspire you to get out and ride now—right now—you need to go check yourself for a pulse.

Exclusive: The Heart of Enduro

03.04.2013

Mountain biking is about the experiences you have on and off the bike, the jokes that are shared, friendly races between mates, waking up with sore legs yet wanting to get back on the bike...and getting into situations that you wouldn’t if you stayed at home playing it safe.

Video: Building a Carbon Frame

03.03.2013

This is one of the few out there that really shows the basics of frame building with composites. There's obviously still a lot that's missing and I'm not suggesting that all carbon frames are made the same way (far from it), but it's a good starting point on wrapping your mind around this labor-intensive and utterly unique process.

Video: 12 Months, 12 Stories – Episode 2

03.02.2013

Last month's episode found Jerome Clementz battling the snow. This time around? Not at all. Apparently it's a good time to rail trails in the Canary Islands, which, as the video clearly shows, is home to an insane network of singletrack.

Video Exclusive: Specialized Enduro 29er

We went into the heart of Specialized Bicycles to find out both how and most importantly, why, the company decided to squeeze those big wheels onto their Enduro model.

Video: “The Escape” Teaser

02.26.2013

This video is about bringing you the pleasure of the road and the thrill of the trails. Although the video’s backdrop is the back roads of British Columbia, we want to remind the world that adventure can be found on your own doorstep; you just need to get off the couch and seek it.

Video: Race Face’s “Off-Season” Edit

02.26.2013

Rather than stage a summer-themed ad and cross their fingers that mother nature would get on board, Race Face embraced the Winter Wonderland that is our backyard....and sent Chubey up Mt. Seymour to hit a massive snow booter for the first time. No pressure.

Video: Shaun Palmer, the Miserable Champion

02.24.2013

The movie, The Miserable Champion, makes the case that Shaun Palmer changed everything about competitive mountain biking. If you said that about any other athlete, I'd tell you that you were full of crap, but in this case, yeah, it's true.

Video: Kona’s New Hei Hei Supreme and Raijin

02.22.2013

For three days Kona Team rider Spencer Paxson and Kona Grassroots rider Eric Goss took two of the company's 29-inch wheel XC bikes and laid waste to many kilometers of ultra-buff B.C. singletrack.

Video: The Odd Couple

02.16.2013

Video: Introducing the Bell Segment

02.15.2013

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.

Video: Reece Wallace–Into the Dark

02.14.2013

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.
