Behind the Scenes of Brandon Semenuk and The unReal One-Shot

When Brandon Semenuk dropped into his custom-built line for TGR and Anthill Production’s 2015 mountain bike film unReal, he did not expect it would become one of the most-viewed mountain bike segments ever.

Norco Brings Back The Long Travel Freeride Bike: the Shore

News flash: Freeride is alive and well. With mountain biking exploding this summer (following a multi-year trend) we are glad to see that our favorite aspect of the sport - shredding for the sake of shredding – is here to stay. Norco, one of the original pioneers of freeride mountain biking, just dropped an all-new bike catering exclusively to that particular faction of riders. Paying homage to freeride's roots, it’s called the Shore, has 180mm of travel front and rear, 27.5-inch wheels, and
