Watch Kyle Mears Ride One of the Craziest Lines We’ve Ever Seen

A video posted by Kyle Mears (@mearsofmoab) on

Professional mountain biker Kyle Mears posted this video on Instagram of himself riding an insanely steep line in Moab. 

His caption: 

"Fear is a funny thing. It keeps you safe? Why do I want to be safe… I was scared shitless here. I actually had to harness the will to do it from good friends who are now deceased. Johnny Hymas, Anna Cabral, Mary Hoyle and others. Thank you for your time and friendship, I'm borrowing some of your strength while I'm still here. 2016 led me to some great things.. some I lost to fear of commitment. I won't make that mistake again. Huge shout out to Evil Bikes for your support in 2016. Easily the classiest company I have dealt with. The owner Kevin Walsh brought me on board just for being nice to a person on the trail.. I would recommend them to anyone. In 2017 I will be representing @orbeabicycles this descent was done on a stock Orbea Rallon.. #Mountainbiking #moab #orbeabikes #2017 #kariimissyou #lineofdeath #ride #ridelife #evilbikes #iseedeadpeople @c3bikeshop @rideshimano @fox good luck to everyone in 2017 and beyond.. thanks @rat_bait for the video and looking out for me just in case and last but not least thanks to @kennysmith9 for the inspiration... first man on the planet to ride this."

We just have one question: Where is the POV?

Here’s Some Good Old-Fashioned Hardtail Shredding

While many bike brands are all about fancy materials and intricate full-suspension linkage designs, Transition just added two new bikes in their lineup, neither of which has a rear shock. In their release video, we are casually reminded that yes, hardtails can absolutely shred too. These two riders take the two new bikes out for a rip in the mountains outside Bellingham to test what they are capable of.

Why this Jackson Crew Came for Winter & Stayed for Summer

A seasonal BLAST in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The term "hole" was used by early mountain men in reference to the "black hole" of the year round shredding opportunity in Jackson. Friends aplenty and activities always, all year long.

Tom Van Steenbergen Just Redefined Big Mountain Riding

Tom Van Steenbergen Just Redefined Big Mountain Riding

Part of the Trek C3 project and one of the most skilled all-around riders Tom Van Steenbergen went to Utah last season to build and ride some of the gnarliest natural features ever. Blurring the line between slopestyle and big mountain riding, he carves his way through the desert landscape, peppering his lines with huge drops and tricks. Slopestyle riding used to be confined to the bike park, but why limit it to man-made features? This is riding like I have never seen before.
