- Bike Checks
Kurt Shimada always goes for it. We've seen countless edits from the Cali pinner over the past few years, and they always involve Kurt getting sideways whether it be on the ground or through the air. A staple of the Carlmont scene, Kurt has an ongoing love affair with the "Big Pimping" gap that has already sidelined him once but never kept him down for long. Fresh off a sweet edit that just failed to podium in Vital's Bar Drag Bounty III video contest, Kurt gets after it again to bring us a little November stoke (and eats a little fresh Big Pimping dust in the process!) Kurt, you and the Brand of the Brave are clearly a match made in heaven!
To reward Kurt for his selfless huckery and commitment to pinning it, Five Ten is sending him a pair of their latest masterpiece, the Five Ten Freerider VXi Shoe. Clearly, he needs 'em!
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.
