Jul 31, 2017
by rasoulution  

After sending it in the streets of Salzburg a few months back, the young Austrian picked the capital of his home country to continue his urban freeride pursuits.

bigquotesThis shoot was just sick! I spent hours jumping into the water and climbing back out of the Danube river dripping wet, but it was hot, the sun was shining and the vibe was great, so I didn't really mind. You wouldn't believe it, but I didn't get a single flat tire during the whole shoot!Fabio Wibmer

 Imagine if the traffic hadn't been bad at the start of the video; presumably he'd have just driven to the volleyball match and it would have been all rather boring!

 That fakie down the stairs was mental

 Eddie Roman material for sure.

 I could do that too if I had Eagle

 Stair gaps? I was born in it, molded by it. I didn't see movies without stair gaps till I was already a man.

 You merely adopted stair gaps.

 Some monstrous jobs in that vid. One in to the subway nearly ended very badly!

 @north-shore-bike-shop: thanks for picking up what I was puttin down lolol

 @SnowshoeRider4Life: yeah man just watched it recently. The Christopher Nolan batman movies are my favourite comic movies. Heath Ledger as Joker and Tom Hardy as Bane are hauntingly good performances.

 You lost me when we climaxed at a well attended men's volleyball event
  • + 6
 right? I mean, women's beach volleyball would be more believable, I'd be in a rush to watch that.

 - How do you set your SAG?
- I prefer 20 mm per each 5m dropped down to flat

 Oh thanks for that "includes paid promotion" warning youtube, I would never have spotted it otherwise.

But those stair gaps though! Jeezes.

 This edit reminds me of all of the old school JIB movies of urban freeride.

 all that for guys volleyball :/

 Einfach genial so ein Video zu sehen und endlich mal jeden Fleck zu kennen, anstatt immer zu wissen, dass es eine halbe Welt entfernt aufgenommen wurde! Österreichischer Radler, Österreichische Marke, Österreichische Stadt - geil Fabio!

 I'm from Vienna. I know every single "spot" he rode. And believe me they are the only ones in whole Vienna. The thing I can tell you is that a normal rider has no urban freeride spot in Vienna. Vienna sucks in many ways. Live is good but it's such a boring city it's unbelieveable. I take my big bike and shred down the hills.

 I'll take his vehicle. It works out for both of us, he'll be a further bicycle master, and I'll have a less shitty vehicle. He'll also make it to the volleyball very fast. Great riding!
  • + 5
 Next level stair gaps. If I had to guess I'd guess there is no carbon on his whip.
  • + 15
 unless you count his frame-
  • + 6
 This video reminds me a bit of a Mentos commercial.
  • + 7
 Except there'd be like 5 lady's waiting for him at the volleyball match going, "omg did he literally just eat a Mentos!? Soooo hot";"but it's Mentos "Cool Mint"" he would say, then it would end.
  • + 4
 I think I'm warming up to full suspension trials. Maybe the moto guys were on to something 50yrs ago.
  • + 3
 I like to consider myself a good trail rider. But when I watch Fabio, Danny, or whoever, I realize I'm just a child who had his dad remove his training wheels an hour ago.

 Has he been sponsored by Redbull for a while or is this a new thing? I don't remember the lid or the oh so subtle product placement before.
  • + 4
 It's a new thing, in his Youtube Sick series about a month ago he revealed that he just got sponsored by Redbull

 @A813H: ah ok cool. Well deserved

 I love Vienna. Awesome stair gaps, and I've always wanted to ride pin it through the Belvedere Gardens. The Austrians are spoilt for beautiful architecture!
  • + 3
 Beautiful city, and the Austrians are not shy to showcase it, I think its great when they let stuff like this happen, try that in some other big cities. Loved the stair gap into the subway wholey shit Batman
  • + 1
 @lake-st: yeah, that is true. Most places would be calling the police if someone started doing this kind of riding in their tourist spots!
  • + 3
 the stair gaps was sick, meccaskill is probably working on his answer edit to this
  • + 6
 Macaskill and Akrigg are way more elegant. Fabio is great but he's a bit brutal and "tamarro". But he's young, he's lots of time to refine his style.
  • + 5
 @giopk70: His gnarliness (definitely a word) is his style!

 Totally mind blowing !!! So f*cking dangerous at the same time the guy is dropping 10 m long stairs with a small helmet.... seriously ???

 So awesome. And the paint on that Stumpjumper is sweet!

 Wie immer saugeiles Video vom Fabio - wir können stolz drauf sein so ein Talent in Österreich zu haben!

 i was waiting for the volley girls....ahaha wrong timing...>>>DUDES!!!

 Not a single flat tire? Sign me up for a pair of Conti`s Der Keisers please!

 Channelling his inner Macaskill with those brakes and shoes

 Fabio Wibmer, that's all i need to see in the title. Provides the goods, as always!

 Reminds me of Thor Wixom's JIB from back in the day!! Absolutely LOVE this shizzzz.

 Loved all the stair gaps. Ballsy.

 What bike is that he rides?

 I think it's a Delorean

 "Insane" is a strong word

 nice video

 Wow! Good stuff

 Obviously great riding but I wish he would come up with a different title. This has a far different ethos to Dylan Sheffer's "Freeride Lives" series and I think it is kind of lame to rip his title without acknowledging him.

 Génial ! Man, you rock!

 Brutaaaal????????
