Liv claims the Intrigue will help boost your speed and skills, and is "built specifically for women seeking maximum control and confidence on aggressive trails." Was this just some marketing talk or is there really a difference? Enduro Pro lady shredder Kelli Emmett helped with the design process, so we knew it had potential to be a ripper going into the 2015 Test Sessions.

From the Danny MacAskill mega-hits like The Ridge and Imaginate to Dougie Lampkin's Tundra Trials, Cut Media's 2015 showreel is filled to the brim with awesome riding and cinematography. Enjoy!

How fun does this trail look??? Lars Sternberg and Luke Strobel rip the ridges and berms of Xanadu in Eastern Washington, and our MTB Bucket List just got longer. There may be some news about what you might see in this video dropping in the next few weeks, too...

The City DH World Tour pulls into Valparaiso this week for the classic Cerro Abajo. There is a brand new course for 2015, and if we are to believe Bernardo Cruz, Tomas Slavik, Filip Polc, Mick Hannah and Johannes Fischbach, it's pretty crazy. Check out the course walk and get ready for more coverage dropping soon!

Åre is more than a well-known Nordic winter sports destination - the resort has been investing heavily in mountain biking as well for quite some time already. Check out the riding on offer in this the first episode of a three-part series dedicated to the town with the weird letter.

Check out some banging pics and a quick race report from the 2015 Oceanias, held in Jared Graves' hometown of Toowoomba, Australia. Richie Rude took the race win by .01 over Connor Fearon, but Fearon won the title.

The 2015 Santa Cruz Nomad is built to be an absolute beast. Now in its third generation, it is longer, slacker, lighter, has updated VPP suspension, and even sports more travel than the previous model. With all the hype around this bike it was high time to officially weigh in on the Nomad during the Vital MTB Test Sessions.

Tire-exploding drifts? Check. Moto whoop bobble-heading? Check. Massive hucks to flat? Check. Goofy kits? Check. Just another average day in the Kiwi life of Eddie Masters and Reece Potter as they obliterate the Skyline MTB Park. #rowdy

Producing an enduro/all-mountain stem weighing in at less than 100-grams seems like quite the challenge, one that the carbon wizards at ENVE set themselves some time ago already. The result launches today - meet the all-new Mountain Stem.
