 Still less noisy and cracky sounds than a V10

 If only it was the bike.. they record the sounds afterwards D:

 @Nathan-MTB: yeah, but why tho?
  • + 98
 sounds like the bike goes skrrrahh, pap, pap, ka-ka-ka Skibiki-pap-pap, and a pu-pu-pudrrrr-boom Skya, du-du-ku-ku-dun-dun Poom, poom

 @Nathan-MTB: that's rubbish, they use microphones, recording sounds afterward is too much effort Wink

 @davidpr2: nope they record it after! look up keith white audio he does all the audio for the speed of sound series
  • + 3
 @larsmeier: looked him up and landed on his page, went to things he has done already and sound of speed is not one of them
  • + 23
 @larsmeier: Keith White does a lot of the Raw100 videos but all of my Sound of Speed videos use sound recorded live on location, except for shots where it wasn't feasible.

 @morrisgabriel: The Eddie Masters video was a piss take, it just turned out that him and Dave were really good at it!
  • + 3
 Ya the sound guys must have something against giant

 @robparkinvideo: "...except for shots where it wasn't feasible" - would you mind to go into detail? Why not feasible and which shots?
  • + 6
 @kerberos: for example when the rider is far away from the camera I don't have time to rig an extra mic closer

 Ya Great riding, terrible sounding bike. I ride faster with a quiet bike.

 He had a few Speed Giggles....... Classic

 if a sitcom just used his laugh for the laugh track, they would succeed.

 Elliot is such a great dude. Stoked to see this video !!
  • + 34
 Great, now when I watch these all I can see is Eddie Masters jumping on an old mattress ruffling a bag of chips to get the sound. Eliot was pinned though, that was damn good.

 Where did you guys see this? I would love to see how it was made.
  • + 1
 @joepax: Thanks
  • + 3
 @joepax: I'm pretty sure they're taking the piss in that vid. Even if they added a few foley "highlight" sounds I'd wager that 99% of it is real. Way to much effort to do that for the whole vid and all the riding sounds.

 Wasn't that video a joke?

 Eliot seems like he would be a blast to ride with!
  • + 20
 ....if you can follow him....
  • + 5
 Eliot to Red Bull...?
  • + 2
 @trevor-attridge: I was just thinking that myself. I didn't remember if he had been on red bull in the past.
  • + 6
 Super chill guy. bumped into him at whistler. Glad to see he's got the asthma thing sorted and back to ripping!
  • + 1
 @trevor-attridge: thats what i thought when i clicked on video
  • + 12
 If the bike makes that much noise when someone as smooth as Elliot is riding it, I don't want to hear what it sounds like when my fat ass is plowing it through every rock and root on the trail...
  • + 3
 Giants just sound like this. They ride great though!
  • + 11
 That moment when you forgot to service your bike and you have a day of filming with redbull incoming.
  • + 6
 Loved it! More of this and more of Eliot riding please. Giant has some incredible riders and I think we see to little of them.

Podiums are great but I wish coverage of the WC DH riders didn’t depend as much on getting a podium. There characters and riding skills are just as, or more, impressive. Plus I want to see incredible DH riding all the time. :-)

 Fact is if we could shed useless content on PB (+/-80%), there'd be plenty of room for sick clips like this

But no, people want to watch someone ride a flow trail on a 29er
  • + 6
 A ride with Elliot Jackson and Yoann Berelli.....that would be a fun ride! =)
  • + 3
 With Métailler. Both on the same wavelength.

 I wish I was a fast bike rider. As a child I was really interested in going fast, now as an adult I generally don't even drive fast. The ageing wears on you, and makes you boring, my childhood self would think I sucked.

 Freakish speed. Great camera work just keeping up with him!

 I have a 2015 glory 2 And its nowhere near this noisy even on far more jagged trails with far less smooth of riding, and no clutch derailleur. Sounds like the pivots need grease, forks need extra shrink wrap and chain is too loose(which may be on purpose because of the Glory's anti squat, but his 275 lb coil should compensate for that, at least it does for me) or perhaps he's running a short cage derailleur for more clearance around the back wheel, either way that's far too noisy for me, and this conspiracy that all the sound is fake must be from ppl who either can't rip corners or took the Wyn masters video too seriously

 Love watching this guy shred. So much style and you can tell he really just enjoys riding.
