Agree with m3hl. Not really a 360, more of an off axis fronty. Regardless, it's flat out ridiculous to be able to stop the forces sending you backward enough on a heavy moto to throw it over the front. That's just amazing!

Hey Chris (Hansolo),

I am definitely not a Cam hater. I've spent time hanging out with the kid and I think he is a super cool guy, ridiculously talented and intelligent as well. He definitely must have done the best thing for himself jumping to Evil because Pablo is no joke when it comes to designing those Corsairs and there was the possibility Cam would help in new product development. On business terms, Cam has his reasons and that is all that matters here.

I think (the new) Evil was re-energized with some super smart people (who have moved to other companies since) but went through some growing pains. They had some frame issues which I assume were attributed to specific manufacturing issues (I merely saw it on the interwebs) and took a beating. That being said, I was only questioning the tactics Evil might have used to get Zink on board.

I believe Evil is making a great product. I've ridden one myself and loved every bit of the ride. My post just questioned the move. Was it a ploy to lowball current riders so they could get Cam and boost their visibility or did Thomas and Steve leave on genuine terms? That's all, just speckolatin'.

By the way, SDG makes the best saddles on the market. Bel Air railed tiger print FTW!

I'm just throwing this out there...don't hate me. I'm probably tempting the internet shark waters with this one!

So I guess the Zink thing begs the question, did Evil lowball their riders and secretly push them out so they could get Zink on board? Not slighting smashing Stevie or Vandersteez at all but Cam is the highest profile slopestyle rider or even MTB rider right now. His endless ESPN coverage for Rampage and his CW win have catapulted him to the stratosphere in terms of visibility. Evil had some money to spare that Flaherty over at Corsair might not have. It's all about money in the end and don't think that it isn't.

We didn't see a ton of coverage on Cam's Corsair sponsorship (maybe I missed it) but Evil is out to right some bad press about their bikes this year. Vanderham is the style master but mainly a legendary ambassador and Smith left for Devinci to try and put them on the World Cup map. Cam getting a Monster sponsorship (I know Smith is a Red Bull rider) and having a signature shoe on a well publicized new venture for Osiris might seem like Evil is aiming for a higher profile? Who knows. Smith and Vanderham are amazing riders but the changes raise some red flags in my eyes.

We all know that MTB is a big chess game with everyone trying to sell bikes in a shrinking economy and market. Could this have been Evil's big move?

I remember my first real deal MTB was a '93 KHS Montana Comp. I had a couple Raleighs before that and a Park Pre Hammer but they were piles so my mom hooked me up for Xmas with this dope ass KHS. It was steel man, it had Rapidfire Plus shifters, it had ... more ยป

I do. Secret spot in SoCal. ZachDank knows these trails. It's a legit spot. Very off limits these days unfortunately as the rangers will stick you with a massive ticket if caught.

Sick!!! That's actually the TV I am saving for right now and buying at the end of the month with this next check. Makes me that much happier to get it now that I know they see MTB as perfect for HD and 3D!!!

Looks like they've blown it again with the colorways. Those are all HIDEOUS!! What happened to normal colored shoes? They blew it with the Freeriders first with that heinous zebra striped shit.

It sucks that they make the best soles for shoes because the rest of the product is a disaster.
