DJ Brandt's 'Airfields' is New School Big Mountain

Jan 17, 2018
by Leigh Ramsdell  

DJ Brandt's latest video, Airfields, delivers in a big way. Filmed in Virgin, Utah, DJ definitely created something progressive that also shows his unique style.

bigquotesThis is for sure the hardest I've ever worked for a video. I feel like all of my riding in the past years has come together for this one. Thanks to Tory and Mongoose for helping me achieve my goal on this one!DJ Brandt

 I'm going to Walmart right now to pick up that bike!!!
  • 11 3
 $199.99 price point
  • 15 2
 Nah they actually sell it on Amazon

Which actually (to me) makes the riding just that much crazier, because this isn't some superbike it's just your average dh and he is out there tearing it up like woah

 Im nore interested in those pants. Are they super light weight like the fox stretchy material? I want some that look like black denim.

 @jrocksdh:

Get some black Levis, they stretch a bit..I got 3 pairs of the black to wear riding..But they ain't cheap, about 70.00 usd per pair.

 Bike looks pretty good for a moongoose

 you young cats haven't yet learned the virtues of stretchy pants yet. When you're buying that bike, hit up this aisle too: www.walmart.com/ip/Wrangler-Hero-Men-s-Stretch-Jeans-with-Flex-Fit-Waist/5982635

 I watched it a few times and it looks like he did - otherwise it would be twice as scary having the freewheel jam up right on the edge of that drop...
