Added a new video Passes Left & Right! Sam Hill's First Megavalanche on the New 2018 Nukeproof Mega 275 Carbon 9/20/2017 1:24 AM
C138x104

Since 1999, the infamous Megavalanche race, which starts from the highest point on Pic Blanc (3300m) above the village of Alpe D’Huez, has been synonymous with all-mountain riding and the highest level of true mountain bike racing. In an attempt to build the perfect bike for this exact style of racing, the Nukeproof Mega was born in 2009. Eight years later, Enduro World Series winner Sam Hill brought the fourth generation Mega for a fitting final test prior to going to production. This is the story behind Hill's experience aboard the new carbon race bike.

Tested on the toughest of terrain and in the most varied conditions, the 2018 Mega sets out to tackle every ride with its trademark attitude.

You can discover more about the Mega 275 Carbon in Vital MTB's in-depth look at the new 2018 models and on www.nukeproof.com.

Added a comment about product review Purpose Built Top Level Enduro Bike, But Beware of New Shock Technology 9/15/2017 10:18 AM
C50_profile_1487817150

When Trek introduced Knock Block, the claims they made surrounded improved frame stiffness and less weight: http://www.vitalmtb.com/features/First-Look-2017-Trek-Remedy-27-5-and-Fuel-EX-29,1406

"As we pushed these bikes further and further while trying to keep the weight down and keeping the bikes stiff... there was an area of the bike that kept coming back as a challenge for our engineering group, and that was the front end of the bike where you kind of have that gooseneck effect of allowing the fork to be able to clear the downtube of the bike."

"The best way to design a bike is a straight line between two points," Riley continued, "and by doing that you get the stiffest and lightest structure possible."

"If we kink that line, you've got to add a lot more material," added Dylan Howes, Trek's Director of MTB Frame Technology, "and that's true whether it's aluminum or carbon."

The new downtube design results in the Fuel EX 29 and Remedy 27.5 measuring stiffer at the headtube and bottom bracket than the existing 2016 Slash and Remedy 27.5, with very notable improvements in the bottom bracket area.

Added a new video Teaser: 'The Moment' Explores the Origin of Freeride Mountain Biking 9/14/2017 1:33 PM
C138x104

It all had to start somewhere... In the backwoods of British Columbia, Canada, three small but dedicated crews of adventure seekers were quietly changing the course of a sport and carving their paths in history. And it was all happening unbeknownst to each other, the cycling world, and ultimately, themselves.

This film is the origin story of a small movement of mountain bikers and filmmakers who rose up, challenged the status quo, and turned the sport of cycling on its head. Coming Winter, 2017, this is a story that has never been told, told by the people who lived it firsthand.

Please support our Kickstarter campaign to make this film a reality!

Added a new video The Crash that Ended World Champs for Rachel Atherton - Atherton Diaries Episode 12 9/14/2017 12:22 PM
C138x104

Australia is fraught with danger! In the run up to World Champs Rachel takes us exploring in Cairns, she survives the threats of the jungle, the jellyfish and the crocs but the perils of the track are just days away… Kade goes crazy in Kuranda and Gee comes over all Austin Powers. Back in the Dyfi, Dan’s Skatepark is still a work in progress but Dan and Muddy have been digging for weeks so they soon decide to take a break from branding the ramps – it’s a good job that Muddy has his XC lid. The team love the Cairns track and Rach is stoked to be riding so strongly and feeling back to her old self but in timed training disaster –strikes – Rach goes down hard and its local heroes Mick and Tracey Hannah walk her to safety … Kade also goes down hard, the team coach and rehab team rule that he’s not fit for Finals so it’s all eyes on Gee… Watch Geeman’s scorching run, all the more remarkable given that he dislocated his hip just 3 months ago - 18th place and fully fired up for next year.

Crank up the volume. Brendan Howey is in his element as he slices and dices all over Coast Gravity Park. Right from its opening, the Sunshine Coast native has been one of the driving trail-building forces behind the park and it shows in his riding.
