Braydon Bringhurst Defies Physics (Again) In 'Wonder' 5

Mind-melting climbs and precision descents that will leave you shaking your head.

While most of us seek out the smoothest and easiest ascent to the top, one rider defies the norm, finding climbs equally as challenging as the descents most of us crave. With unmatched fluidity, finesse and power, Braydon Bringhurst's newest edit 'Wonder’ showcases the terrain Braydon loves to ride and how RockShox's new Flight Attendant automatic suspension system helps him unlock new lines.

An edit filmed in the Utah desert usually features riders only launching down drops. Not for Braydon. Enjoy as he powers up what should be unrideable climbs while finding flow like no other on the descents and even mixes in some stylish tricks. Thanks for making us want to get out and ride, Braydon!

Braydon's Set Up

"I am definitely a fan of riding up and down, so I want a bike that is balanced. Ideally, I want my bike to be enjoyable on the climb but still confidence-inspiring to get rowdy on the descents. I ride 29-inch wheels for the confidence they bring. My last bike was a 27.5 and it was super fun but at any sort of speed, it got twitchy. I do love tricks and jibbing so I have had to work a little extra hard to get that figured out on the bigger wheels. But overall, I prefer the bigger wheels on my trail rides.

Lyrik Ultimate Flight Attendant

  • Air Pressure: 85 psi
  • Sag: 25%
  • Tokens: 4
  • LSC: 3 clicks from open
  • HSC: 3 clicks from open
  • Rebound: 6 clicks from open

Super Deluxe Ultimate Flight Attendant 

  • Air Pressure: 210 psi
  • Sag: 25-30%
  • LSC: 3 clicks from open
  • Rebound: 4 clicks from open

I like the Lyrik because it's burly yet still has flex. Coming from a pole vaulting background where my equipment's flex is essential, I really do understand the significance of my bike flexing. The frame, wheels, suspension (stanchions and psi), tires (psi), cranks, and bars... it all works together and if one is too flexy or too stiff, it seems to throw off my ideal setup."
