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.

Specialized Just Dropped the Best Marketing Video Ever Made

Specialized’s marketing department deserves an Oscar for this one. Do you follow anything about mountain biking on the internet? Then you’ll love this, and yes, it’s all in the details. Not really sure what my favorite part of this guy is, but there’s everything from “looks like a session,” “never go full enduro,” to a questionable new EDM soundtrack courtesy of the world’s best-looking mountain bike DJ. We also get to take a peek into Specialized’s design process. No, really, we do. Oh

No Surprise, Calvin Huth Drops Another Clean Edit

Does Calvin Huth actually sleep? We're beginning to ponder that question here at the TGR office because the guy turned yet another edit this month. As usual, each of his films has their own distinct flair. This time it's back to Huth's backyard we go—Vancouver Island. The enchanting foggy rainforest is quickly overshadowed by Alex Volokhov's grit on a bike. Not only does he float high through the air, but the guy picks himself from a burly fall.  Taking a second to shake off the crash, he

Kilian Bron Continues to Rip Anything But Dirt

We’re convinced at this point that Kilian Bron doesn’t actually ever mountain bike on dirt. The other day he dropped a video of him cruising down the world’s tallest sand dune, now he’s bombing through pow at La Clusaz. Watch as the skiers pause in disbelief as Bron cruises by. Bron definitely seems a bit crazy, but we're fine with that so long as he keeps injecting his outlandish ingenuity and creativity into the sport. Now, the real question is: What’s will Kilian ride
