- Bike Checks
Vital member Karol Hapel (aka Frantic_Shishkebab) is the kind of rider who should be on every crew. Ready to send it, whether it ends in success or in the bushes, he seems happiest when he's pushing the boat out a bit. You don't need huge tricks or breakneck speed to get rad - a little fun-loving spirit and a few big hucks and you're there! It helps to have cool trails to ride on, too.
Since Karol embodies pretty much exactly the spirit of the Brand of the Brave, Five Ten is sending him a pair of their latest masterpiece, the Five Ten Freerider VXi Shoe. We're pretty sure they'll find a loving home!
Time to find out just how brave you are. Five Ten, the Brand of the Brave, and Vital have teamed up to bring you a monthly search for the most daring among us. Whether you finally stuck that big drop, completed your longest trail ride ever, or overcame adversity or injury, we want you to be rewarded for your courage.
The contest runs monthly, and the rules are simple - we'll pick one Vital member-submitted mountain biking photo or video that best exemplifies bravery each month and reward the winning member with rad prizes from Five Ten. Think you have what it takes? Then get out there and inspire us!
At the end of each month, we'll announce the winner based on who stoked us out the most.
