It's been scientifically proven that you can do a lot of rowdy stuff and a Dakine bike fanny pack will still keep whatever's in there safe. That's why it's no surprise that the Dakine MTB team is so dang rowdy on bikes.

Are we supposed to interpret this as “trailbuilding through the eyes of the tools themselves,” or what kind of art-house cinema experiment is this? I mean 2:08 is Oscar-worthy. In all honesty though, trailbuilding is vital to
Living in a mountain town means the fun never really stops, especially during the overlap of seasons, when ripping on dirt and snow are possible on the same day (or even at the same time). For a few weeks in the spring, Snowshoe, West Virginia can be shared by riders looking for both dirt and snow. So of course, Carson Storch invited his buddy Jaxson Riddle, and snowboarders Sean Fitzsimons and Luke Winkelman to shred a custom-built snow and dirt track to celebrate the changing of the
