Words & Photography // Peter Jamison
Bas and Calvin Huth had been looking to collaborate on a video project for quite some time, thankfully this came to fruition with "Canvas"
No room for error with the tight corners Bas designed
Laying it down
Not too many people have come to Virgin, Utah with the intention to bar drag
Easy and steezy
No shortage of hard work from the Canadian
No dig no ride
Water is liquid gold in Utah.
Full gas for this line which Bas had originally built during the 2015 Red Bull Rampage
Perfect light on one of the biggest jumps built in Virgin
The steed that made it all happen
Presented by Maxxis Tires
Straight into the berm section
No berm was safe
Not your typical Utah digging conditions
Camera in hand one minute, shovel the next
Off into sunset to end the project
The hip was the final feature for the video, and that was all she wrote
Thanks to Maxxis, Hyper, Deity, and Marzocchi for supporting the piece.

Man I wish print magazines were still a thing. Nothing was better than getting the latest mag in the mail and opening up a to a 12 page high quality spread of images like this.

Great video - well done!

Really wanted to see how you get your bar/ grip dragging in the dirt, did not disappoint, but got to remember to time the foot plant out of it?
Just have to build a jump/ roller to try it out on!

That bar dragging scrub has to be one of the dopest mtb pictures I've ever seen.

Photo of the year contender for sure.

Nice bike....???. Looks like a session

Solid Video and Photos... That Scrub/Bar/Hand Drag photo is insane....

i really can't figure out what Hyper is doing ....

Cheap paint and stickers on a catalog bike frame that’s sorta a YT/Kona/Trek knockoff. I’m sure it hardly matters what he’s riding so long as it doesn’t explode under him.

No one can.

: I actually kind of like the colour scheme and logos on it. Significant improvement over previous iterations. May well still be a cheap and nasty finish though.

: Frame may be cheap, but the paint sure isn't. Custom job by Fresh Paints of Whistler. Some of the raddest paint out there!
