Kilian Bron & Co. Show us What it Takes to Chase Volcanoes Via MTB

Blood, sweat, tears and the right gears might be what makes up a great biker - but what makes you arguably the greatest biker is having nerves of steel, a sense of adventure, and maybe a faulty amygdala (but we aren't judging, we get to see some awesome footage because of it). 

It's hard to think of anything else when you see what went into the making of Commencal's new edit that came out last month: Chasing Volcanoes on a MTB with Kilian Bron

RELATED: Kilian Bron Mountain Bikes Volcanic Island

If you haven't watched it, the guys head to the Aeolin Islands to bike some of the most dangerous and demanding terrain the world has to offer, and they still manage to have fun while risking their lives. 

Behind the Trip of Chasing Volcanos shows the crew overcoming a few obstacles like vertigo, seasickness, sulphur fumaroles and erupting volcanoes, just to name a few. 

They might make the final product look easy, but mountain biking near volcanoes proves to be no small feat. 

Amazing skills and passion. One thing I need to know and that is how do you guys manage not to damage the suspension of the bike. I mean jump like that can make the spring go damaged and loosen. I tired the same thing with my mountain bike and had to repair it.

Matt MacDuff’s Title Edit is on Another Level

If a mad scientist decided to become a mountain biker, they’d probably ride like Matt MacDuff. The guy is always building mind bending features to ride—remember when he sent a double backflip on an open loop? His recent edit with Title is exactly what you’d expect from MacDuff: insane builds, and even crazier tricks. We’d recommend watching it a few times through to try and grasp what he’s doing, and good luck trying to name the tricks. We're still stumped.

Rampage Was Canceled, But That Didn’t Stop Kyle Strait

October is a magical time to be in the desert of Southern Utah. With perfect temps, generally dry weather, and riding elsewhere getting sloppy, it’s no wonder that the world’s best mountain bikers gather every year for a few weeks of red dirt shredding centering around Red Bull Rampage. Unfortunately, 2020 threw a wrench into those festivities, canceling the event and preventing most riders from traveling to this mecca of freeride. Despite that, a few riders did show up – including none other

David Godziek Channels His Inner Mafioso in NS Bikes’ Latest Film

Imagine this: you’re just putzing around on your BMX bike one day, having a ball hitting curbs and such, and two scary looking dudes with neck tattoos throw you in the back of their car. You’re terrified, unsure what you’ve done wrong, and they bring you out to a forest, mysteriously full of freeride features, hand you a dirt jumper, and are like ‘send it.’ You’ve basically imagined the premise of NS Bikes' new film. Featuring David Godziek as the shredding kidnapee, the film takes an
