Trails That Drop Jaws Under Switzerland’s Most Iconic Peak - Singletrack Switzerland Zermatt

In the first episode of Singletrack Switzerland, a new Teton Gravity Research mountain bike project produced in partnership with Swiss International Air Lines, Switzerland Tourism, and BMC Switzerland, two American mountain bikers – pro rider Brice Shirbach, and pro skier Carston Oliver – venture to Zermatt, Switzerland, where they experience alpine singletrack on a level and in a landscape ummatched in North America with the help of Epic Europe tours

With gorgeous singletrack winding down thousands of vertical feet of Swiss Alps mountainsides from gondolas, trams, and trains that climb near every peak in the valley, the pair join German BMC Pro Rider Kerstin Kögler to experience all Zermatt has to offer, including Gornergrat train-assisted descents and the giant Zmutt Glacier, which is steadily being whittled away by climate change but yet still holds an unparalleled beauty.

Smith’s Finally Drops a Full-Face Helmet, and the Video Is Hilarious

Time and again, the bike industry proves that it has one of the greatest senses of humor. Whether it's Specialized with their bike release videos, or now Smith releasing their brand-new Mainline full-face helmet, they certainly get our attention. The helmet looks promising, with ultra-light construction and all the DH-level protection for rowdy riding you could ever need, but it’s Smith’s athlete roster that steals the show, featuring everyone from Jesse Melamed to Remi Gauvin to ALN

Must Watch: Nico Vink Rides Through Fire

A decade ago, Ryan Gibb released , a masterpiece of a mountain biking film. A sequel never materialized, and he spent the next few years working on commercial projects. Then, in late 2018 Gibb made a return to the MTB world, traveling to New Mexico's Philmont Scout Ranch for an ambitious shoot featuring Nico Vink.

Cam McCaul Turns Mt. Bachelor’s Baddest Trail Into A Music Video

Every bike park has that one trail – the one everyone talks about, whether out of excitement or straight up fear. At Whistler, it’s the trails like Dirt Merchant. At Mt. Bachelor, it’s the Rattlesnake trail, a rooty, rocky, and super techy downhill. For local (and international) legend Cam McCaul, it counts as one of his favorite tracks to test his skills.
