In the fading days of a long Indian summer, Kona travelled to the Selkirk Mountains above Revelstoke, British Columbia to capture their XC bikes doing what they do best, inhale single trails.
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. Thanks to the incredible work of the Revelstoke Cycling Association, rides like the speedy Frisby Ridge Trail, the iconic Keystone-Standard Basin and the endless Mt. Macpherson network presented the Kona riders with some of the best cross-country riding on the continent. Rides with views so spectacular it’s hard to keep your eyes on the path ahead, made with dirt of heavenly origin.
With Spencer riding the 2013 Raijin Lynskey-made titanium frameset, and Eric on the all-new Kona Carbon Race Hei Hei Supreme, the filmmakers had an especially hard time keeping up with them.
