Visual Simplicity Speaks More Than Words

Makken the Tourist sees Mads André Haugen descending snowy freeride lines in Norway. The reason I’ve featured this clip is the pure simplicity of the lines he leaves behind him in the snow. Pick any sandy New World Disorder, snowy unReal descent etc and you’ll see a similar picture. Makken’s use of line to control speed,…

DO NOT MISS JORDI’S SUSPENSION TALK THROUGH!!!

FOX Dialed Episode #15 gets off to a slow start until it gets to 4 minutes……then my take away message is to watch the remaining 10.39 minutes……because even if you think you’re good……Jordi’s better!!!   “Pressure, Volume, Compression, Rebound……..but always come back to your sag point; that at least gives you a spot to continually revert…

Burgtec Penthouse Mark 4 Pedals

A few weeks ago iconic UK based downhill supplier Burgtec unveiled their MK4 Composite Flat Pedals but, on review here, are their premium aluminium bodied, titanium axle pedals. Up until the release of the mk4’s, the legendary Penthouse pedals were big, bulky and heavy due to their pure downhill focus. With this incarnation things changed and…

In The Flow – Andrew Neethling is a must watch

Hats off to Andrew Neethling and Shimano for producing a film that showcases so much learning material it’s like a reference text book. This film is one of the best I’ve seen since Vaea Verbeeck’s Horizon for being able to follow an elite level riders posture & technique.  It can sound strange, but one of…

Who’s Marine Cabirou?…..if only they’d given us more

In my opinion, this film is a good watch but came close to being genius. The film follows French downhill pinner Marine Cabirou who rides for Scott Factory Racing.  It offers snippets of information about what Marine gets up to in an average week looking at her riding, gym work and in the voice over she tells…

Brendan Howey in Rain or Shine

Commencal backed Canadian freerider Brendan Howey is back with another edit that offers some great opportunities to excite your mirror neurones. In this film, as expected, Brendan shows off his trademark skills on a bike. The reason for me highlighting this film is, not so much the riding as, Scott Secco’s cinematography and editing which…

WaveCel – What’s it all about?

Two weeks ago Trek released the first of the below promotional videos showing their new Bontrager WaveCel technology helmets……..so what’s it all about? It’s been known for some years that the majority of concussions and brain injury’s that occur in mountain biking come, not from direct blows to the head, but from glancing blows and…

In the same vein as his Berm Riding and Tabletop tutorials, Matt provides explanations, demonstrations and advice on technique along with mistakes to avoid. It’s a good watch if you’re wanting to start looking steezy…
