We are very excited and proud to announce that The Coastal Crew have partnered up with Specialized. For all three of us, this is a dream come true. To have Specialized believe in our efforts has huge meaning to us, and we feel very fortunate to be able to work with a company that is so enthusiastic about everything we do. For us riding bikes always comes first, and Specialized is going to help us maximize our potential through all of our adventures in the mountain bike world.

Dylan on his new demo

We’ve been equipped with the best variety of bikes and equipment to suit all of our needs. For the 2012 season we will be riding the Demo, Stumpy EVO, and SX. We will even be giving the Stumpy EVO 29’er a go. We’re stoked to be using the Dissident helmet, Specialized tires, and new customized pedals.

Norbz on his new demo

Recently we did a fresh rebuild on our backyard jumps to beef them up and add more lines. It gave us a great opportunity to get used to our new Demos. This is just the beginning of another action packed season. Between various video projects and more traveling, we will be back on pace producing another feature film through out the year – stay tuned and look forward to more from us!

Curtis on his new demo

Big thanks to Nicolas Teichrob, Darcy Wittenburg, Logan Peat and Evan 'Intern' Young for all the help producing this video.

 Darren Barrecloth and Matt Hunter seem to have done well by Specialized. It says something about a company when top class athletes stick with them and the company sticks with the athletes. Love the riding and hope this works out well for them.
  • + 25
 For those wondering, the song is Radiohead - Everything in its right place - Refracture remix... had it sitting in my song bank to use on my next edit dammit! Safe to say The Coastal crew have done a better job with it hah. Awesome to see them on specialized, There are few other companies out there that can offer such support for athletes.

 Gotta love a little Radiohead, perfect song for it the video too.
  • + 7
 i think specialized will be very happy with this video

 Specialized has such a sick rider lineup this year, should be a good year or them with the coastal crew, hill, brosnan, montgomery and barrecloth, should be a good year for them!

 super original CC edit. Don't think ive seen them on these jumps b4.
  • + 4
 Remember the cranked 8 revolution CC vid! so sick!
  • + 3
 time for some more whips
  • + 2
 So I'am guessing this means that Specialized will be coming out with a new creation of awesomeness designed by CC? Also you can tell this is a good sign because nobody so far has said anything stupid.

 too late, way to jinx it, fillipStarcervic up there.... and that blue and orange frame is sick, they should do some custom paints
  • + 1
 The blue and orange is the TLD special edition - you can buy it.
  • + 1
 Hermit, fillip can be excused because not everyone has seen Kranked 8.

 you retards i was being sarcastic. since kranked 8, 3/4 of the videos filmed by them have been on those jumps.
  • + 1
 Maybe this experience is a good lesson for you, not everyone picks up on internet sarcasm.

 wow its been a huge year for all the different riders changing companies. anthertons to GT, Fairclough to Scott, Montegomery to Specialized, Fogel to Nuke proof, the list goes on! its gonna be a awesome year of riding!

 Nice to them on Specialized. I liked them no matter what bikes they were abusing.. Good move Spec!

 Now we know why they were selling the voltage fr's on nsmb.. I think the voltage fr suited these guys alot better than the demo's. The demo 8 is more dh, and voltage is like a playful fr/jump bike.
  • + 4
 Totaly agree !
  • + 13
 Berrecloth and Hunter seem to do alright on Demos.
  • + 0
 yeah but they can pick status for fr fun
  • + 9
 I saw them riding there gamblers more then there Voltage so i think the Demo will be good, and if they want something smaller there's the SX trail and also the SX so I think they will be fine. Stoked for them!
  • - 2
 Have Spec stopped making the SX trail?
  • + 0
 Yeah but they also have SX's....
  • + 4
 No I'm pretty sure they still make em, (SX Trails) but only one model. Frames still the same, then of course ya they do have the SX for more slope and DJ stuff. I really want to see them on a custom SX Trail!!!
  • + 2
 They still do the SX TRail 2012 in the UK at least, I've just bought one
  • + 2
 Matt Miles also rips a Demo
  • + 3
 The Claw and Matt Hunter and Matt Miles are amazing free riders with their bikes .. with their demo !
Curtis , kyle and Dylan have been on scott bike for so many years .... now they ride Demo ( an amazing bike for sure ) , we have to adapt ^^


It remembers me when the Atherton family go to GT ... everybody was like : " NO don't do that ... you have to stay with Commençal "
We associate certain brands with riders and we are shocked when they change Big Grin

But when i see Curtis's orange Demo and all the tricks they do on their ( amazing ) backyard ... i love The coastal crew on Spécialized bikes Wink
  • - 2
 I'm kind of disappointed to be honest, never have cared for the demo's or any other spec I've ridden. they always seem like well built bikes (apart from the old sx trails flexy a**end), but just lack the fun of other companies. perhaps it's just me but I would have liked to see CC stay on scott or some other company.

 ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh why can't the orange one be mine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Yeah that orange one is HOT

 maybe its next years color?? spesh did the same thing with the 2012 p.3 colors....i saw some of the guys at sea otter last year with the 2012 color before it was released...

 so many riders are now on specialized!!!
  • + 11
 thats because there a great company Smile
  • + 4
 And the build quality of the bikes is amazing, even on their budget models !
  • + 5
 I just tried my new demo today.......I'm in love
[Reply]

 They could put these guys on kid's tricycles and they would still pin it to hell and back. I don't think their sponsor matters that much, because Coastal Crew videos will be epic no matter what. I'm not a huge fan of the big S, but if the riders are getting a better deal or better pay for what they love to do, more power to them.
[Reply]
  • + 8
 Nice new sponsor but i think the scott bikes had that freeride climate. I wish the good season in specialized Wink
[Reply]

 Congrats, I love my specialized bikes and the company continues to pursue the best riders! Great videos and sick riding! I love videos that inspire us to go out and ride!

 And noooow I want a Specialized Smile

 You would buy a bike just because a few pros ride it?
  • + 21
 people will, thats why riders get paid haha
  • + 3
 i reluctantly just sold my sx trail, i am going to moarn the loss of the bike for years to come,it was so fun
  • + 3
 yes you will
  • - 9
 Mmoom would by specialized from stupid reason but his choice would be very good because these bike are awesome.
I have old demo and all the time everything is all right not like in bikes of my friends.
My friends have bikes from different companies and all the time something go wrong.
If damper will not explode then frame gets clearances or something like that.
That’s why my next bike probably will be DEMO too.
  • + 23
 Cool Story Bro.
  • + 5
 @Bogumil1202247 specialized doesn't make the parts they just make the frame (and I bet they make amazing frames), but if parts are braking on your friends bike and not yours it's probably because your friends have cheap parts, or are total hacks.
  • - 2
 Frame is not part of bike?
My DEMO was cheaper then Mondrakers or KONAs of my friends but it always was working much better and was fault-free.
Specialized fames are so good because guys from specialized know hat to do.
Geometry of frame is very good the same like welds also suspension is very, very cleaver.
Everywhere are rolling bearings and in only one place is sliding sleeve and there is almost no move.
That’s why suspension don’t get clearances and thanks for cleaver suspension frames are very good in turns and berms.
Only bad thing what I don’t like in some of new DEMO’s is ugly painting.
Black and red is all right but red and yellow looks like frame from MC Donald.

 Specialized spends so much on its pro riders, but won't do squat for their dealers in Canada

 Right on the money man. Been waiting since mid december for a demo frame.

 But it seems like devinci doesn't spend enough effort on their American dealers

 You don't see devinci sponsoring dozens of pro riders now, do you?

 Congrats on the new sponsor! The reason I enjoy watching these videos is because they work as a crew. Its a lot of fun to ride with your friends and their videos always remind me of that. Its like the old skate videos (Bones Brigade anyone?). Riding with you crew for maximum good times.

 You know, this would be the perfect time for Spec to throw the Demo 7 back into their lineup... The Status might be aimed at the entry-level market, but hell everybody has a good FR/mini-DH bike these days, and I bet these guys could get work done on a new Demo7...

 I just bought voltage fr, and it was cuz of them, they inspired me... and few days after I finaly got the bike they switch Big Grin and about the bigger and smaller companies, i think that scott is actualy bigger than specialized..

 Woah. For some reason I had a feeling about this outcome for a while now.

 Especially because before this announcement they had a video of them on specialized bikes.

 @benthirlwell - Oh nice. I never saw that video. I just thought that Trek had there C3 crew and I was thinking Specialized must want something similar.

 I hate when the big guys take over good guys to make more profit. But hey, at least we gonna see some awesome riding in the future and the best film/riding/building crew has a new sponsor. Can't wait for the endless awesome video materials that will rain upon us.
  • + 13
 i dunno scott is much bigger in the non-biking world man
  • + 21
 There "big guys" because they make amazing products and put countless hours into developing their bikes and other things. They are not some giant huge corprate company taking over "good" guys to simply make a profit. There an amazing company helping out stunning riders/ film makers. Seems a no brainer to me.
  • + 1
 ...bet Speccy forked out a motza for the CC..! Good on 'em...as long as they keep doing what they're doing.... ...was also hoping they'd all hit the cross of death at the end of that trail...!
  • + 7
 yeah, but so is Scott. Its too bad really, I really liked seeing them on the Voltages.
  • + 4
 I hope they put out more vids though as part of the sponsorship. They are massive undertakings but I love their videos too
  • + 3
 @drinkmilk54 - I can back you up completely... I took a shot at a job position with Scott USA a while back and did a ton of research on them, and they have MASSIVE road bike and snow markets, especially in other countries.
Heck, 3 of my goggle sets are from them, and not just for MTB...

These guys will do great no matter what, and they moved from one great company to another!
  • + 1
 togood- one of my buddies joined Scott for skiing and he's been saying the same thing which shouldn't come as a surprise but it's def. not what you think when you only see their bike products. But yeah to say big is bad is hardly true especially with Scott or, I'm assuming, with Specialized as well.
