I literally watched this flick 6 times while it was streaming (thank you PB & Red Bull!). The cinematography, editing, and of course the riding were absolutely riveting. It feels like our 'Endless Summer', something I could see a non-rider actually sitting through and thinking, 'ah ha, that's why they do it...'. Very well done, and hopefully the beginning of the 'next generation' of true theater-quality mtb film making.

Seriously, I could've done that.

yeah he's riding a downhill bike down a hill. no jumps. no drops. just a mountain. anyone could. its more for the unique location. and i'm positive it's 500 times more steep than it looks.
(Oct 3, 2012 at 10:14)
yeah Zink himself said pretty much the same thing in the video. it not for jumps just "a line thats boarder line impossible"
(Oct 3, 2012 at 10:14)
ur an idiot dude...its like an 85 degree down that silly!
(Oct 3, 2012 at 10:19)
Yeah that looks super easy. Not.

There's a shot of Doerfling hitting a chute in the second Gobi section towards the end of the film. It's the only shot in the film that's at an oblique angle and really shows the steepness of the terrain they're riding in the entire feature. The amount of skill that's required to clean this terrain is unfathomable. It only looks easy for a reason.

that just doesnt come across on camera....when a guy is using his bike as a climbing aid, you know its steep..........helmet cams never show how steep something is
(Oct 3, 2012 at 12:42)
meh...If you can walk it it's not steep.
(Oct 3, 2012 at 13:03)
...and if you can walk it with a dh-bike on your back it's relatively flat
(Oct 3, 2012 at 14:50)
ya rite...go ahead and do the line Mister L

Not knocking on Cam or Contour, but the side helmet is not a good place for a helmet cam
(Oct 3, 2012 at 15:49)
its the best place on a helmet IMO, top of the helmet sucks ass to watch in comparison
(Oct 3, 2012 at 22:29)
I actually agree. I dont really like helmet cameras, as side of helmet looks crap and top of helmet looks like your riding a penny farthing...chest mount!!!
(Oct 3, 2012 at 22:34)
+1 couldn't agree more.
(Oct 3, 2012 at 23:51)
contour doesnt make a chesty tho, aftermarket yes but that wouldnt look good in a contour promo vid
