I am actully looking to build something of the same. But the picture of the wooden berm on this thread is smaller and not steep enough for what iam wanting. I have a section of 3 jumps at our trails that after each you gain a whole lot of speed and its slighlty downhill, then berm that turns to the right. I want a wooden berm/wallride but iam not sure how to build.
Whats the best way to build one of these?
Also how do you get a good curvature along the whole berm?
Most building materials 2x4's and such are straight, How do i make a structure with consistent curve and good bracing on a 20ft berm? Does anyone have a picture of a wooden berm bracing structure?? That would be the most help.
Something very similar to this one. https://ep1.pinkbike.org/p4pb2530175/p4pb2530175.jpg

That one at Winter Park was so fun. A shame they took it down.

Man that would be sick in a bunch of places on the trail behind my house. Joggers would take it down though. They always do!

Did you ever build something like this? I was thinking scaffold tubes?

So this is our wooden berm. The supporting structure is made up of roughly 6x8cm Oak logs, the planking 4x20 cm pine.

Its pretty solid and the Oak will last a long time, the decking might need to be repaced in a few years.






The reason we built a wooden berm/wallride was a constant erosion problem in the old dirt berm. this should take care of it for a long time. If you want details i can provide more pictures. there are no technical drawings as we used hand milled lumber with plenty of irrgularities and just always piced from the stack that suited us.

Do you have any video of people riding it?

it has a small kink in the middle but works well when riding. its initial purpose was to build a corner as the prior soil Berm had massive erosion Problems
