The 2014 World Cup downhill season starts in two weeks just where it left off at the World Championships in 2013 - Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. Will 2014 be the season 27.5 wheels sweep the circuit? Will Steve Smith and Gee Atherton continue their dominating battle for the overall title? Will rising stars like Richie Rude and Loic Bruni usher in a new generation? Can anyone challenge Rachel Atherton’s dominance? I can’t wait to find out. Get caught up with the 2013 season here.Tweet Print

Our trip went down in early February in beautiful Nelson, New Zealand and the surrounding areas of the Nelson Tasman district. We planned a little backcountry adventure with a few of my friends on our Juliana bikes.Tweet Print
Join us on a ride through Kona’s 27-year long history making trail ripping mountain bikes. Together again, for the first time (crazy, right?), an original 1988 Kona Cinder Cone shares the trail with its 2014 off-spring. Hop on a true mountain bike original and Kona’s longest bike model and blast through a quarter century of fun.
We’re big fans of Knolly Bikes, and had nothing but good things to say about the 140mm Endorphin we reviewed last year. Now the British Columbia-based brand is taking things up a notch with the new 150mm travel, 27.5 wheel Warden. Check it out:
Suspension designs are a complicated thing. As Kona says, it’s a game of millimeters. From its first full-suspension model in 1995 to its coming 2015 models, Kona has refined its single-pivot, linkage driven suspension designs for their ultimate application. There are three variations in the current lineup, and this cool video walks you through the design philosophy of each.Tweet Print
Borealis is making waves with its super light carbon fiber fat bikes. I’m guessing this video is going to make some waves too.Tweet Print
If you’ve ever seen footage from Megavalanche (or have been lucky enough to be there yourself) you know it can be a crazy and chaotic scene. Filmmaker Ralf Schupp wasn’t interested in all that, so he took is time to be able to ride the route without distraction and meet some folks along the way who didn’t quite survive the madness intact.Tweet Print
Think those videos you see of amazing mountain adventures just come easy? Think again. Some aspiring filmmakers from Slovakia got in touch with their story of their adventure in the West Tatras mountains and how their new film “Get High” came to be.

One and a half year ago I did not know almost anything about mountain biking. Now I can say that I know more about it and have seen more videos than a regular rider. Peter Lengyel has infected me with his passion and showed me that it is possible to do what you like.
He had this video in mind for a long time. Thus, when he was ready to make it I wanted to take part. Even though it is a short movie, it took a lot of work, effort and planning. It is almost no budget movie. No budget, because we had only family support (borrowed cars and some equipment) and a borrowed bike for 2 weeks which Peter have not ridden before. However, without the priceless help of our friends, the video would be impossible. The biggest thanks goes to Juraj Lovás and Michal (Sakso) Stiksa who filmed the entire video.
So we had two weeks to film it. As you will see from the pictures, the weather was not always pleasing us. Rain, snow, fog, drizzle, wind, sun, we had all kinds of weather…Tweet Print
