High fiving, hauling some freight and nearly dying (twice) in the process. Lear Miller follows Dylan Stucki down some of the fastest singletrack near San Luis Obispo during Vital MTB Test Sessions.

Lear's arms tho...
1/22/2015 3:36 PM
Did you guys fifure out the hucker gap up top?
1/22/2015 3:57 PM
Lear went for it, landed a little wild. That's why the video cuts out there. Haha. Nice one Team Furbs!

That was some good riding. I like to see the almost OTB parts. Solid riding for a test...POV always makes it look smoother than real life. That test right there counts in my book.
1/22/2015 12:37 PM
Ride the brown pow!
Nice to have an edit of mere-mortal type riding, complete with "almost died. Whoooooo!" at the end. I can relate!
1/22/2015 12:32 PM
Always a good ride for clearing the head and a great way to end a work day.

that trail is not conducive for testing full suspension mountain bikes.
1/24/2015 4:07 PM
It's true. Canadians don't recognize the importance of suspension in this phenomenon that occurs elsewhere in the world called ">15mph". Real suspension testing comes from 3mph stem humping off 5ft drops to splat and ramming into bulbous granite lumps uphill so that you can drag your ass with your brakes also dragging on the other side into a hole.
Seriously......you watch a fanny pack in your face for 3 minutes and that's your complaint?

trolls be trolling... but seriously.

This was just one of many trails used to test the bikes. Unfortunately we're unable to post our video footage from the burlier trails (think non-stop rock action). While this trail is on the smoother side of the spectrum, it still offers some great perspective on how the bikes handle slalom-style terrain. We typically only rode it on short travel bikes, like the Intense Spider shown here.

I appreciate Vital not posting video (or names) of the "good" trails in SLO.
As you now know there are some sick ones that need to stay on a need to know basis.
And this trail is not in San Luis Obispo, but half hour away in Montana de Oro State Park. And it's fully legit.
1/22/2015 12:43 PM
Dollars to donuts that they rode more than just that trail for testing. EDIT: ^ Yep.
1/22/2015 6:16 PM
this trail looks like heaps of fun but Jay is right, that is full blown XC. Surely we can see some of the burly stuff?
