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.

It’s been confirmed that the bike has two shocks, which is different, to say the least.  RELATED: Shifting Gears: Brooklyn Bell on Diversity in Action Sports The bike hasn’t been released to the public yet,

Watch Kilian Bron Ride an Active Volcano in NZ

Kilian Bron has an uncanny knack for finding the most unusual locations to ride his bike and making it work every single time. How about an active volcano, Bron? I mean, at least this time it's got dirt.   RELATED: Kilian Bron Will Leave You on the Edge of Your Seat At first glance, the volcanic White Island in New Zealand with its sulfur pools and knife-edge ridges seems less than ideal for a leisurely bike ride. But yet again, Bron makes anything look like a good time.
