Spring is knocking on our doors and the first shafts of sunlight have finally made it back to our planet. We're so ready to hand in our our skis and snowboards for the 2 wheeled steeds. World Champion Greg Minnaar and the Californian clothing specialist O’Neal have launched the GM signature series including his race kit, gloves and knee pads.

Greg Minnaar states: "I'm honored that a company like O'Neal, chose to go in a joint venture with myself and come up with a signature range that was based around the Santa Cruz Syndicate colours. There is no better feeling when going for a ride or sat in the start gate, that you're wearing clothing, protection and gloves that fit and feel exactly how you've designed. My signature line was inspired by a rider, for the riders."

Iris Kuckelberg, Brand Manager of O’Neal, is excited about this collaboration: "When you build product with passion there is no compromise. Together with Greg we have used the finest materials and craftsmanship to develop a signature line which fulfills the high expectations of a modern mountain biker."

Greg apparently is not only an incredible rider, he seems to have developed almost Hollywood-level acting skills since he started riding for Los Angeles based clothing brand O’Neal. Watch his new video for yourself!

 I think this was one of the best bike related commercials I've ever seen. It has everything!
  • + 46
 Thought the scenario and music was a bit cheesy, and then the UPS girl showed up in the bikini and all was well. Now THAT is what brown can do for you
  • + 1
 Just bought the Greg Minnaar signature shoes @ 0.08. Hopefully those will have as much grip as my five ten.
  • + 6
 bit cheesy but then it all paid off... Big Grin
  • + 41
 title should have read: greg minar introuduces his hot ass girlfriend.
  • + 1
 In the frame of the video behind the play button, I had to double take to check that whether it was Greg's hand on her arse!
  • + 23
 wait... so what they're telling me is if I buy his kit, I'll instantly rack in hot babes and shred like Minnaar? Sold!
  • + 71
 Greg was alone in the bed at the start. Damn. He wears high heels...
  • + 9
 I wonder if the ladies version of the jersey come pre-rolled... or if they have to do that themselves
  • + 3
 @orangesicle good spot, looks like our world champ likes to cross dress on a friday night!
  • + 2
 This is what we should see on TV
  • + 5
 Did anyone else think she was just gonna start riding off?
  • + 4
 its sick to see a world champ ripping some berms and jumps that I helped build ! wish I was there when they filmed
  • + 2
 Anyone know what kind of helmet minaar is riding? Any help would be appreciated
  • + 1
 Its a kubuto ixa-c. It is also sold under the name Nema Player Carbon. I have the nema (same helmet different graphics) and its amazing. Its lighter than my friends D3, and i think its nicer too.
[Reply]
  • + 78
 stole the clothes... left the full carbon V10 with carbon rims and factory 40's... oh dear lord why!
  • + 67
 because she is a blond
  • + 8
 What do you call a blond with two brain cells?...................Pregnant.
(heard that the other day and thought it was funny)

 This what happens when you let moto guys handle the marketing:

"Hmm, definitely needs tits. Johnson! Think up a way to get some titties in the new Minaaar spot! We all know products won't sell even if they're endorsed by the best rider on the planet. No, some mosquito bite barely handfulls and a soft dumpy ass is essential to convincing the MTB consumer. Get on it!"

The riding was so sick (how bout the huck? can we get some alternate angles please?!), I don't see why they needed the cheesy story line with an average looking chick and Greg prancing around in his skivvies.
  • + 2
 Would've liked to have heard the bike noise aswell, pretty sure that If it was just Greg shredding it would do a lot better viewership wise..
  • + 5
 We don't need anything more than a few nasty scrubs and some shredding
  • + 33
 You're complaing about a pretty girl being in the video? Average? And yes, they will go back to the location of the shoot and get some better angles of the huck. Just for you.
  • + 47
 Seriously, you guys complaining about this?!? No girls just scrubs, COMMON MAN! Hot girl in bikini.....great vid.
  • + 22
 there's just no reason to complain.
  • + 10
 Sorry guys, had to get a good cover up post going. My woman saw me watching this and was about to bitch up a mini storm about sexist industry, I had to act quick lol
  • + 4
 The Huck? That jump is called medium pimpin'. Mega pimpin' is right next to it and it's a 50 footer. That's the real huck at Carlmont.
  • + 11
 Dude, you must live in the same house where Top Model is filmed or something because that is hardly an average girl...
  • + 1
 I'm exaggerating, it's not at all uncommon considering today is international women's day or some bullshit like that. Instantly everyones a feminist!
  • + 2
 Whoa, first I got no problem with using girls in bike vids. Big fan. HUGE. I just think its weird they use a chick who looks like she's never ridden a bike. Her face is pretty, but I'm sick of that 'skinny-fat' unhealthy look that all "hot" model types have these days. Yes she's thin but everything seems a bit soft and boring. How about doing some squats and building some muscle? I like a chick with some shape and tone. Plus if I want to check truly hot chicks on the internet, Pinkbike isn't my first choice if you know what I mean. I come here for riding fix.
  • + 11
 I do love me some toned women! If theres one thing I could make every girl do more its squats......sometimes on my dick, but the result should be about the same
  • + 2
 @Hypermoto, where exactly do you live? last time i checked, this was not your avarage looking girl, atleast not where i'm from Razz
  • + 4
 People are always complaining on here. Chill out and enjoy what they've done. After all, they don't give a fuck about your moaning.
  • + 0
 yes its true some of us actually prefere the huck and scrub to the pretty made up girl. my black market never complains. just sayin
  • + 1
 My bike never complains either, and the good thing is, i can lend it to my bro's or ride another bike, gf won't let me do that Frown
  • + 1
 Sick vid with a hot-ass girl. Yes please, may I have abother? Y'all are crazy if you're complaining about watching a beautiful woman alongside some sick riding!
  • + 1
 @trimakas Hell, I'm not complaining dude! Only I sometimes wish girls were a bit more like bikes Razz
  • - 1
 You'd think they could at least find an attractive woman for the vid... I'm sick of annorexic washed up porn-stars with dyed blond hair... That chick was BUTT UGLY.
[Reply]
  • + 30
 Lol! Loved it cause we're big Minnaar fans! But would have been better if the chick put the clothes on and stole the bike - riding away on a DH trail!
  • + 1
 Would've been better if she rode off *without * the clothes, but that might miss the point of the ad. Hey, what do I know?
[Reply]
  • + 21
 When he lands the whip at 2min sideways it was neat to see how much the wheel and rear end flex.
[Reply]
  • + 12
 Shit advert but the facts are as such... That girl is amazing. That's it. The ad does't make me want to buy O'Neil gear it just makes me want to wank. There I said it...
  • + 2
 Lmao!!!! Same here!! Bang tidy.
[Reply]
  • + 13
 LOL. The scenario is so cheesy but I'm ok with that because Greg rocks seriously.
[Reply]
  • + 13
 did anyone notice the shoes on gregs bedroom floor??? is there something hes not telling us??
  • + 1
 Noticed that too. Haha.
  • + 1
 That is a show!
  • + 2
 Yep, good eye.... I guess there's somethings about Greg we'll just never know...
  • + 1
 Those are his weekend shoes, he goes by the name Gregina then >.

 heavens to murgatroid lighten up ! with all the this is sexist remarks, its just a bit of cheesy fun no need for all you Caring Understanding Nineties Types (abbreviate if necessary) to get ya knickers in a twist .go chain yourselfs to some railings or throw a banner over someones horse or something.
[Reply]
  • + 3
 lol - sorry but when dressed in all this garish downhill gear and riding out of context (i.e on the streets) people just look like pratts or little boys that are not allowed to ride a big motorbike yet - on the streets they look awkward but on the hills and with all the other racers they look the business -so its laughable that they would get a sexy look from a lady on the street -i feel it would be more of an eye-roll than anything else

tbh it has to be said but from a marketing point of view and target audience this misses the mark by a loooooong shot

the girl is pretty, but for me i would prefer to see a girl rider, battered bruised and shredding it than a blonde princess like this - would have been alot more believable to boot
[Reply]
  • + 3
 See?!? That's the problem with companies who think women don't ride... They think we'd rather have his lame kit when, personally, I would have stolen the bike instead. Smile

Also -- the moral of the story? Date women who don't ride; at least she won't take your bike when she leaves you for the next guy, and you'll leave more space for us on the trails when she forces you to stop riding so you can 'spend more time together'.

 Awesome video. Cheesy but still awesome. Made me laugh. Gotta love all the Nancy's complaining about seeing a hot girl in a bikini..... Jeez guys do you even go outside? I live in Alberta with winter for 6 months of the year and still manage to see girls in bikinis. Get over it. Live a little.
[Reply]
  • + 2
 Lot of people saying "we don"t need hot chicks in mtb ads"...

I personally felt this ad a bit satiric ! Classic porn scenario, classic "wake-up scene", classic "swimming" scene, in front of a "great"scenery... I laughed twice while watching this ad. First, because of that funny scenario. Second, because of Greg's riding ! That guy can ride a bike !

unfortunately, I still don't wanna buy O Neal clothes...
  • + 2
 we don t care about clothes, we gonna buy that chick.... XD

 SEX SELLS! Way to go PINK BIKE!

Perhaps some female PB members could comment weather this is sexualy objectifying woman? Or is this acceptable?

At least my pics of sexy woman are woman that ride bikes!
  • + 5
 Hmmm... We got to see foxy Mr. Minnaar in his boxers sooooooo no beef with me!
  • + 6
 I'm not offended either... I don't think they sexually objectified the woman any more than they did Señor Minaar.

I mean, if O'Neal is trying to tell me that average-looking female UPS employees are attracted to this outfit or that Minaar wears very nondescript boxer briefs, then BOOM. Excellent work. Mission accomplished. Smile I feel ready to take on the world with this new wealth of knowledge I've amassed. Smile
  • + 2
 So sex is a natural and entertaining subject that can be discussed or seen on PB as long as it is tastefully done. Woman can enjoy Minaar in his boxers and men can enjoy woman stripping. Smile
ambatt take on the world girl! Im keepin an eye on my bike.

 Sram this is how you do marketing, great product and vid O'Neal, pure class, does that kit come in black n white and green n white Id be all over it. Been hankering for those knee pads for sometime too, O'Neal seems hard to buy even online though and impossible to buy here! South Africans chicks are dam hawt btw, US can keep ya fake tits!

 cheese fest! I can smell the Stilton from here!
[Reply]

 I believe this to be false advertising: girls have never made that face the UPS girl makes when Greg first rides past...
[Reply]
  • + 2
 So if I buy this complete kit, the mail lady follows me around and then seductively takes it back? Sounds like a good deal to me.
[Reply]

 Great add for boy's who live with their parents and don't get to see the real thing. Shame they forgot women ride too....

 Would it not be cool to have Jerseys with your favorite riders name on the back, like the ones they wear- like in other sports? I think they'd sell pretty good - each manufacture would make their sponsored riders jersey Am I alone on this thinking?
