Bike Check: Kade Edwards' & Casey Brown's Trek Sessions - Audi Nines 2021

Aug 26, 2021
by Samantha Saskia Dugon  

Audi Nines is well underway this year, and so are the bike checks. For this one, we have a double whammy bike check on Casey Brown and Kade Edwards' Trek Session Park bikes. Two riders, both known for their style and steeze on big jumps, but with two very different setups.

We've done a comparison to see the ways in which Casey Browns and Kade Edwards setups differ, as well as what traits they share. They are two different riders with different dimensions but do they share any common ground when it comes to setup?

Kade is not only a junior world champion in downhill but is also no stranger to huge jumps. He shares a lot of the same sponsors as Casey with a few exceptions. He and Casey do share similar fork pressures, since both riders are running their Boxxers at the maximum allowable pressure, a testament to how hard they are both are hitting the jumps and landings.

 It’ll be 4 soon with Proving Grounds. Let’s wager she’ll also have the same exact set up.

 Casey consistently has some dope paint jobs on her bike. Her style (both design and riding) is super fun and loose.

 Totally shafted with the old model session

 Not shafted, it's the Park version, so better suited for this type of event.
