Awesome Climbing Technique from Braydon Bringhurst in Transcend


It’s not often I pay attention to the climbing sections in videos but seeing Braydon Bringhurst taking his Canyon Spectral up Captain Ahab in Moab got me reaching for the replay button.

The riding that’s on show here is normally only the reserve of a Chris Akrigg film but, with his company Burst-Media, Braydon perfectly captures the exhilaration that can be found in mountain bike ascents.

The cadence and timing of his pedal strokes, his body position and technique over obstacles, his use of transition’s between obstacles; there’s so much to take in here you have to take multiple replays to absorb it.

The film opens your eyes to techniques that are often overlooked by many riders but which we should be working on everyday.

If you’re going to take the time to practice, practice like the elite.
