Please stop overusing and trying to adapt the word banger to mountain biking. You're making us sound like a bunch of kooks.

A banger is a really, really sick skateboarding trick, usually at the end of a video part. It is probably an NBD (Never Been Done, please don't start using that either) or NBD at that spot. It is sick enough that anyone watching would need to rewind the clip several times before collapsing in disbelief. BMXers can maybe get away with using it in the same context. MAYBE you could get away with using it to mean the same thing when referring to MTB slopestyle. The way you're using it is akin to describing the bread bowl you had for lunch at Panera as "epic".

If you absolutely feel you have to use it, here is an example of appropriate context:

The Edge of Reason and Beyond - The Rise of Vinny T: The clip of Vinny's save at 1:05 is a banger!

Incorrect:

The Edge of Reason and Beyond - The Rise of Vinny T: He's enjoyed a banger 2014, as this video will attest to.

Thanks. Keep Vital awesome.

I've had some pretty epic lunches, actually. Taco Bell's new Quesarito is a banger.

Mitch Ropelato's gap to wallride that's playing in the Specialized ad on the side of my screen right now is an extra cheesy Quesarito.
