I hope you were lucky enough to catch the Perseid Meteor Shower last week. If you were watching it from the Spanish island of La Palma, a few of those streaks might have actually been these maniacs in wing suits.
Sean MacCormac is just like you and me. He puts his (probably very expensive custom sportswear) pants on one leg at a time, then straps a snowboard to his feet, cinches a parachute to his back, and leaps headlong out of a plane and directly into a thunderstorm above Florida.
Skating a drained in-ground pool is old hat by now, so an entire waterpark was the obvious logical step forward.
After a three-year hiatus for safety and organizational overhauling, the Red Bull Air Race World Championship is back for the 2014 season. These races pit daredevil pilots against gravity—and each other—as they guide their acrobatic single-seaters through a series of challenging "air gates" in as little time as…
This photo and video of a daredevil from the Red Bull Skydiving team holding a glider while riding another glider makes me giddy with joy and excitement. First, because it's simply amazing—one stunning, extremely difficult stunt that they executed perfectly.
I can help but to feel a mix of awe, envy, and fear as I watch Red Bull Air Force pilot Hannes Arch taking off from a road in the Austrian Alps and then perform some what-the-hell-are-you-noooooo-oh-my-god-you-got-to-be-kidding acrobatics way too close to all those amazing ridges.
What a tricky mind trip. Though it looks like this fixed gear biker is playing a video game or stuck inside a M.C. Escher drawing or a part of an optical illusion, he's actually riding on a real bike course made with real ramps and doing real jumps. It just looks crazy from our perspective
You know how most people stay indoors when they hear a hurricane is coming? Yeah, these aren't those people. These crazy guys go out in the ocean and chase the storm with their windsurf boards so that they can fly. Just look at the awesome dude above getting ridiculously big air. It's like he doesn't care that he has…
Imagine yourself stuck in traffic. Imagine listening to some Top 40 radio station playing the same 4 songs over and over and wondering about the things you would do if you didn't have to commute. Imagine your brain numb. And then imagine seeing some psycho bike rider pull off some bike tricks off of a half-pipe on top…
It's been just over a year since the nail-biter of a day when Felix Baumgartner jumped out of a shimmering weather balloon 127,852 feet in the air and reached a top speed of Mach 1.25. And now you can watch it from his point of view—and several others. Fair warning: it's still nerve-wracking. It feels like he's going…
The human effort and technological prowess shown in this video—documenting how Red Bull has been making their winning Formula 1 cars for the past few years—is simply staggering. If you like to see how people make cool things, you must watch it.
Almost 7,000 people entered Red Bull's third annual Illume sports photography contest this year, making it one of the largest photography competitions ever staged. And finally, at a ceremony in Hong Kong yesterday, the jury announced its winners. Who knew snowboarding could be so moody and artful?
Earlier this month, 48-year-old Russian BASE jumper Valery Rozov took a leap off of Mount Everest from an elevation of 23,687 feet, the highest ever BASE jump to date. Thank goodness other people are this crazy so that you don't have to be.
Levi Sherwood is a professional freestyle motocrosser that hails from New Zealand. He's also the reigning Red Bull X-Fighters champion, which is a freestyle motocross competition that sees these guys flipping and jumping and, generally speaking, doing really crazy shit on their bikes for people all over the world.
Red Bull has always tasted suspiciously like found bubble gum—whatever, you don't drink it for the taste, you drink it for the pulse-racing amounts of caffeine and B-Vitamins stored in each can. Until now, that is. Red Bull's just rolled out three new flavor editions of its energy drink and we've got to warn you,…
Enjoying a nice, refreshing Red Bull as your morning pick-me-up? Swallow now. Because apparently, your energy drink of choice has found itself the victim of some good, old-fashioned poop extortion.
Remember how Red Bull made that amazingly ridiculous athlete-powered Rube Goldberg machine? This is how they did it. And it includes 11 athletes, 12 different machines, 4 RED cameras, 45 GoPro cameras, a 75 person crew putting in 3,422 man hours and a helluva sawdust.
Driving Formula 1 cars is hard. It's hard and it's scary. Lucky for you, the folks at Red Bull set up a nifty 360-degree panoramic video rig on top of their own F1 racer so now you can get some of the thrill with none of the skill or the danger.
Yesterday, extreme athlete Felix Baumgartner lept from a balloon hovering 24 miles above the surface of the Earth. This is what he saw on his way down. (Fair warning: this might make you nauseous.)
