What a complete and total mind spin. Kriss Kyle and Red Bull teamed up for this totally trippy BMX video called Kaleidoscope that employs what is essentially a fun house filled with ramps that are moving around and fun little holes to spin in until you disappear and so much more cool stuff. It’s like a bizarre level… »
Doing things at night is always a little more edgy, a little more scary, and a lot more fun. Doing things at night while lighting up entire forests in the Pacific Northwest and moonscapes in Utah in different colors is all of that night fun with a giant load of awesome added in. It looks like a completely different… »
Backflips, I get. You launch in the air, you tilt backwards, and you flip. Front flips are a whole other story. You launch in the air, you tilt forward (which is downward but you’re still going up), and then you flip? Crazy talk. And this triple front flip from Ryan Williams? Definitely more than three times the… »
My goal for this trip was “Don’t Die!” But, when you get the chance to ride the best trails in the world, with some of the best riders, what are you going to say? For me, it wasn’t going to be “no,” even though I wasn’t in shape and in no way a good enough rider.
Problem: You don’t know how much of your electric bicycle’s performance you can use before its battery runs out. Solution: The new Specialized Turbo S let’s you program ride distance, time and how much charge you want to use, then maximizes electric assist to suit.
It’s already hard enough to just go mountain biking where there are no trails. It’s already hard enough to just walk on a slackline suspended in the air. So naturally, it makes perfect sense to go mountain biking on a slackline. Wait. What? That’s what Kenny Belaey did. He rode his bike on a slackline over a 367-foot… »
Called Surfing Trails, you would think this beautiful video about Bali is about, well, surfing. But nope! It’s a biking video that travels through the wonderland that is Bali, exploring trails on volcanoes and cuts through the forest and jumps through the hills. It’s a lovely exploration of the island. »
The big surprise in this legitimately bonkers biking video is that there is absolutely no surprise in what happens. You see everything happen before it happens even though you’re in disbelief as it is about to happen and question if this could really happen. I mean, the bike rider, Primož Ravnik, rides straight down… »
The quest for a human powered, stable, fast and energy efficient vehicle has taken us a long way. Let’s see how it all started.
High-End camping gear maker Nemo promises to make sleeping outside more comfortable than ever. Cannondale is releasing a road bike fitted with a lightweight version of its “Lefty” front suspension and a second wolf has left Oregon for the sunny climes of California. Here’s what’s new outside.
In a first for a big bicycle brand, Trek is moving its sales online. And it’s claimed to be a move that won’t just benefit consumers, but your local bicycle shop, too. »
You might chuckle at the idea of a drunk cyclist, but since they often share the road with motorists, they can be just as dangerous as an inebriated driver. So if you don’t trust yourself to leave your bike locked up after having one too many, this bike lock will only open after you use its built-in breathalyzer. »
You know you’re in some deep sludge of brown goo when a bike race starts and pretty much everyone around you immediately loses control and crashes. That’s what happens when you ride a bike downhill on a glacier. That’s what happens when you ride the Megavalanche race. »
This just doesn’t seem possible. Even after watching Jed Mildon nail the world’s first ever BMW quadruple backflip, it doesn’t seem like it could happen in real life here on Earth. And that’s pretty much true! The video below shows the bad falls and crashes and body slamming it took to get this stunt down and it’s a… »
It’s the rare finds like this, the one in ten thousand discoveries, that justify Craigslist’s existence. Someone in Eugene, Oregon, is actually willing to part with this magnificent 12-foot long custom T-Rex skeleton tricycle they made that comes complete with handlebar-controlled jaws that really open. »
What happens if you put a 4,000 watt motor—nearly five horsepower—on a bicycle built of strong, lightweight materials? I’ll tell you: pure craziness, heart-filling joy, and power pedaling at high speeds you could only dream of before. »
Road bikes are meant for the road... but that’s too limiting and not fun at all. What’s really fun is seeing Italian cyclist Vittorio Brumotti freestyle all over anything that can remotely come close to being ridden on with his road bike. Like highway rails next to the ocean or narrow hand rails or an airplane… »
Los Angeles is slowly but surely working its way towards being one of the most bike-friendly cities in then country by laying down a comprehensive network of bike lanes throughout the city. And this cute pint-sized street sweeper employed by the city makes sure they’re kept free of debris. Awwwwww. »
It’s an easy joke to say that you can power your electronics by just getting on a hamster wheel or riding a bike but the truth is, it’s really, really tough to do in real time. And we’re not even Olympic athletes. German track cyclist Robert Förstemann is and even with his watermelon-sized thighs, he said his legs… »
Shimano is bringing its electronically-actuated Di2 shifter technology to mountain bikes, claiming increased reliability, faster shift speeds and improved man-machine interface. Can it really make riding a bicycle easier? We spent a day on the trail to find out.
