 Absolutely one of the best bike films I've seen this year. This will take some beating. Riders that make it look easy, gorgeous music and moody scenery. Wonderful. If I was asked if I could ride my bike like anyone on earth, it would likely be like these guys right here, understated and just letting the riding doing the talking. Well done to the team behind this.

 hands down, Curtis riding style is amazing, he handles the bike extremely smooth but at the same time it really looks powerful. always a pleasure to watch
  • + 6
 Perfect way to start a Monday morning, that's for sure.
  • + 4
 Yes, Yes, an o F yeah.....! Somethin about this really touched me...............slickist edit in while!
  • + 5
 This was beautiful. Next time someone doesn't get mountain biking I am showing them this.
  • + 2
 I'm here at my office, stressed and worried for the CEO's, but watch this video makes me feel comfortable and with all gains to go to ride my bike.
  • + 1
 Absolutely gorgeous.
  • + 136
 norb got robbed again.
  • + 21
 His friends call him Norby!
  • + 6
 Actually he calls himself Norby....... www.pinkbike.com/video/134138
  • + 3
 Was surprised many never watched Kranked before.
  • + 0
 He saves his footage for Crankworx Dirt Diaries.
  • + 45
 Damn I wish I had a lot more free time.. Need to ride, not drink coffee at my desk on a Monday morning.
  • + 3
 My thoughts exactly
  • + 2
 Right there with both of you... Freaking amazing video for monday morning.
  • + 34
 one word. beautiful.
  • + 12
 Indeed this is how i like mtb videos. Good cinematography and good riding makes a stunning combo
  • + 31
 This. Edit of the year.

 IMHO i got a weird feeling of un-satisfaction after about 1 minute of it as the riding was too fast paced to go with the slow piano... it just deserved some good old shred it music to go with it!
  • + 30
 The ENDURO looks epic
  • + 27
 this comment's ripe with Specialized rhetoric
  • + 19
 Props to Curtis for doing such a unusual and unorthodox setup. I'm interested to see how it shreds. All hail the next In the Know!
  • + 21
 Perfect blend of natural sound and music. Really a mesmerizing video.
  • + 6
 Agreed. I like that the music is soft enough to hear the tires. Adds to the calming nature of this video.
  • + 1
 Anyone know what the song is?
  • + 37
 it's a timeless classic. "She Got a Big Booty so I Call her Big Booty" - 2 Chainz
  • + 2
 The audio mix was spot on. Freehub, tires, birds, music, that's what I hear in my head when I ride. . . rarely. . . WOW.
  • + 1
 The song is "Hometown Hero" by Paperchaser
  • + 19
 Nobody wondering about the Enduro/Boxxer setup?
  • + 5
 Yeah, whats the deal with that?
  • + 19
 Specialized has the Enduro Expert Evo, which comes with a Boxxer Team and Ohlins coil. For those park rats
  • + 4
 Thats pretty bad ass. First time i have seen that!
  • + 10
 CycloGoss is correct the EVO can come with Boxxers. I'm pretty sure EVO has 180mm rear travel and the Boxxers are lowered to 180mm. I'm thinking about this instead of my Demo!
  • + 6
 thats true, but you can only oder the evo in the following setup, and I've never seen a rockshox in the evo, only the Öhlins suspension or Custom FOX VAN R like here www.specialized.com/us/en/bikes/mountain/enduro/enduro-evo-650b or here www.specialized.com/us/en/bikes/mountain/enduro/enduro-expert-evo-650b. I would also love to see what kind of exact setup this is. Anybody can share this info?
  • + 4
 Looks pretty sick actually!
  • + 2
 I've been riding a Boxxer Race with my Enduro for years Smile
  • + 2
 yoobee have you lowered your boxxers to 180mm?
  • + 0
 Any air fork can be lowered pretty easily with some plastic spacers. A coil spring takes spacers plus you have to cut the spring. I used to run a boxer ride Uturn on my cove spot. It was pretty much the balls, until the head tube cracked...
  • + 1
 romERROR, it looks like theyre running the Boxxer World Cup or Boxxer Team in front, with a Rockshox Monarch Plus RC3 in back
  • + 1
 This will only make the Status to have same place like the Enduro SX.
  • + 1
 the geometry for 2015 was changed for the evo, and the 2015 has a coil spring fork (boxer Team) but lowered to 180 so I guess they ride a custom setup.
  • + 0
 @tbgd - I tried the U-Turn (165mm) for a while, but 200mm runs better, esp. if you like downhill more than uphill Smile And as the Race can be locked by full compression uphill works quite good.
  • + 17
 Holy crap, that bike, the helmets, the riders, its just too much. I can't take so much awesomeness!!!
  • + 2
 I dunno if it pulls the ladies tho...the lack of glitter, neon...bright shiny stickers... Wink
  • + 18
 Those custom vinyl wrapped helmets are badass
  • + 14
 All I know is the Coastal Crew are absolute masters of the bike...filming-building-riding. "...and the Oscar goes to..."
  • + 1
 I agree, honnestly, they are my model since my beginning !
  • + 2
 When I very first fell in love with this sport the vid I saw that made me snap and become obsessed with MTB was a coastal crew vid.
  • + 2
 So do I.. With this one. Always the same feeling when I watch it !
www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUeZMGrLAhY
  • + 12
 that was so sick. like art. showing this video to anyone that think downhillers are just wild gypsies that just huck off the nearest cliff far and wide.
  • + 13
 ENDURO BIKE WITH DUAL CROWN FORK ,,, THIS BIKE LOOKS SO RAD !!
  • + 5
 It's the Enduro Evo, Troy Brosnan used one for some of the races last year. It shreds like no other.
  • + 1
 The frame has so much potential
  • + 0
 so this is Specialized answer to the Trek Session 9.8 Park
  • + 0
 They started making it back in 2011 but they also had the Status with the same amount of travel but I think the Status was more of a park bike for them. This is the first year that they put a dual crown on it.
  • + 2
 The Status has 200mm of travel. Only by changing shock stroke can you get it down to 185mm. Yeah I was aware of the Status being their entry level DH/Park bike. The Enduro Evo 650b however has better spec.
  • + 1
 Yeah, their status 1 from 2013 had 170 up front but you're right with the evo being better specd.
  • + 12
 Warning! Don't watch this on your desk! You're going sad and mad if you can't jump on your bike immediately.
  • + 8
 This disclaimer needs to be at the top not the bottom. It's too late for me now.
  • + 3
 I watched this in my cubicle at work and now I have to talk with HR and my boss about fapping it at my desk.
  • + 2
 I did a long road ride today and it instantly made me regret not riding my mountain bike.
  • + 10
 I don't think anyone captures the pacific northwest spirit like the Coastal Crew. They are MTB royalty!
  • + 3
 As someone who lives in the PNW I agree. I just did a backpack trip through the north cascades this weekend and all I could think about while hiking through the forest was how it looked like coastal crew edits.
  • + 10
 I really wish I had the skills to ride like that! They make so fast look so effortless!
  • + 10
 Srammedia have become my favourite editors/film producers for everything mtb filmy
  • + 3
 Poetic justice in every sense of the equation. As mountain bikers and fans of mountain biking, we've just witnessed something truly unique. Edits come and go but this is something else. Mindspark Cinema and The Coastal Crew has to be one of these most powerful film and ride combinations to date. Power!
  • + 1
 Poetic justice in what sense?
  • + 4
 Hallulejuh... Praise the lord! (of music). In the world of dime-a-dozen edits with adrenaline-fueled crap music choices - this is just excellent. More, please.
  • + 6
 curtis and dylan, you guys are awesome
  • + 4
 Thats what riding bikes is all about. Amazing feel in this edit, well done boys.
  • + 4
 Ahhh, the picture with the drone... they stole my idea to revolutionize shuttling...
  • + 6
 Well that was magical
  • + 1
 Unfortunately I had a nasty fall out of my truck bed and broke the radial head in my elbow. Spent the past week in the hospital. I got home yesterday after reconstructive surgery and Ti radial head replacement. This was first on the feed, I watched and I cried. Overwhelmingly inspirational tears to kill this physio and get back on my bike. Thanks boys, this is the type of motivation I needed, not LaBoeuf yelling at me to do it.
  • + 3
 Brilliant video music riding, the music leaves you with a sad melancholy,( probably cause you will never ride like that or ride trails like that, ha ha) .
  • + 4
 If this video doesn't make you fall in love with the sport, I'm not sure anything will.
  • + 4
 I'm living my life based on the assumption that this is where you go when you die.
  • + 6
 Well that was AMAZING...
  • + 4
 NORBS GOT ROBBED FOR NOT BEEING IN THAT VID
  • + 3
 Holy. Curtis is becoming one of my favourite riders to watch. Also, new CGP trail ? Smile
  • + 1
 Thats what I was wondering.
  • + 3
 Really enjoyed everything about this vid. Music and riding were all awesome. Tasteful use of slow mo.
  • + 2
 Well that was special, creative treatment / sound design / mix is absolutely spot on and riding incredible. I'll be revisiting this video a fair few times this month.
  • + 3
 One of the sickest edit I've seen. Better then full movie. Those guys never disappoited me!
  • + 5
 What's the song?
  • + 1
 shazam don't work with it ..
  • + 3
 VOD.... the end.... mind spark + coastal crew = magic
  • + 2
 this soundtrack belongs with a video of a someone crying, in the rain, in a dark city... my senses are confused
  • + 1
 This is among the best vids ever! Soundtrack & edit is amazeballs! Makes me wanna ignore the hurricane outside and go ride my bike... now!
  • + 4
 love da enduro!
  • + 3
 Crushing the #DJI Inspire !
  • + 3
 I need a new pair of pants. That bike is just .........
  • + 3
 Coastal crew and sram vids always provide the goods
  • + 2
 Its art. I will spec all SRAM parts on my bike if it allows these guys to continue to produce this art.
  • + 1
 Just the best video I've seen in such a long time. Instantly favourited and watched again. Need to go here. It's on the bucket list for sure
  • + 3
 Well, That was peaceful..
  • + 1
 it was beautiful ... the sound and the music made a incredible video, but the configuration of those bikes make me lose my mind...
  • + 2
 Best riders on the best trails riding the best bikes make the best videos.....
  • + 3
 So cool , love the melow music with it .!!
  • + 1
 Moving,powerful,amazing!! These guys are at the peak of how freeride is!! WOW ..........I'm watching again!!
  • + 2
 sick lines, sexy bikes, i want that life.
  • + 1
 Finally the new Enduro Evo in action, great! If they prefer it now over of the (Race)-Demo?
  • - 2
 Costal crew only rides 26" wheels... So they wont ride the new Demo.
  • + 2
 Enduros only come in 650b and 29 (they def arent running 29), so your logic might be flawed
  • + 1
 @MSVF Might be a custom setup not the 2015 evo, another suspension, another color, another drivetrain etc. etc.
  • + 1
 Epic. These 2 riders are so flowy; building, shooting, and riding unparalleled. Always love their videos!
  • + 1
 Yeah just to add to all the comments. Truly a well done piece. I feel like crying cause its so good. Good stuff.
  • + 2
 This is somehow almost hypnotic. Gotta get out and ride!
  • + 3
 Poetry in Motion !
  • + 3
 Anybody know the song?!
  • + 1
 I would be interested to know why they chose a monarch plus over something like a vivid air.
  • + 2
 Probably the best edit I saw for a few time
  • + 1
 I can only add to the praise. Beautiful video in just about every way. And that Enduro setup is so sweet...
  • + 1
 Just watched this having only just woken up in the morning. It's like I want my dreams to be, just amazing
  • + 1
 Is there any difference between the Specialized Enduro which sells now and the one in this movie ?
  • + 1
 The 180mm boxxer is modified or custom-tailored ?
  • + 1
 The one you can buy is modified I doubt that the internals are different from the 200mm fork you can buy. The only DH fork which you can reduce to 180mm from 200mm is the Dorado nowadays. The suspension they are riding in the video looks like blackbox stuff.
  • + 1
 I can use tokens to change travel
  • + 1
 Tokens are used to make the fork more progressive. The standard stuff that comes with the fork doesn't allow travel change but I'm sure you could do it DIY style.
  • + 1
 I am gonna to buy a new 180mm freeride fork instead.....
  • + 2
 already watched it 10 times....shed a tear everytime
  • + 1
 Monarchs in the evo? Wonder if they are custom length to match the frame specs
  • + 1
 Been a couple of lovely mellow edits recently, this and the Scotty Mears vod from a few weeks ago. Both fantastic!
  • + 3
 Why isn't this VOD!!!
  • + 1
 Yeeeeaaaaaaah I'm definitely gonna have to cheat on that Algebra final tomorrow...
  • + 1
 Those bikes are sick, an enduro with a dual crown on it and i already want one.
  • + 1
 Is that a 7 speed cassette, or is that the 10 speed DH stuff? Short cage? Does not look like an 11 speed 42. . .
  • + 1
 so awesome! bring on coast gravity this summer!!
  • + 2
 Not enough dubstep...
  • + 1
 U like heavy metal?
  • + 1
 Dope! Can't wait til next year, when we visit!
  • + 1
 I just watched this two times in a row. Awesome edit!
  • + 1
 I neeeeeeeeeeed that rockshox rear shock!
  • + 1
 time for sram to develop a proper floating rotor. awesome vid
  • + 1
 Sunshine coast will never be the same. These guys killed it. Sick video!!
  • + 1
 bonkers dope. sat in silence on the edge of my seat
  • + 1
 any1 know what trail that is n where?
  • + 2
 The first bit in the clear cut is the beginning of Mach Chicken in Roberts Creek. The berms and jumps are in the CGP. Some of the other stuff is on the Sunshine Coast somewhere. Sick zone to ride for those boys.
  • + 1
 This has to be VOY the sounds the music the angry bee hubs.... Perfection.
  • + 1
 anyone know what hubs they are using?
  • + 1
 Why aren't more enduro bikes like this? A true mini DH sled.
  • + 1
 there are, check out the Giant Reign (I personally ride this bike the Reign Advanced 2 it's like a mini dh bike), Devinci Spartan, Santa Cruz Nomad, Trek Slash, the list goes on really. These days anything with a 160mm of travel can pretty much do anything and everything. Remember the Santa Cruz bullet? only 6" of travel of every free riders dream.
  • + 1
 almost none of those are made to take a dual crown fork dude
  • + 1
 Why do you need a dual? the Pike and the 36 can all take that kind of riding.
  • + 1
 Its not a need but a preference
  • + 1
 Well i sure have a berm boner after watching that little gem!!
  • + 1
 Exemplary would be a good word for it.
  • + 2
 so mesmerizing
  • + 2
 I'm speechless
  • + 1
 Such crazy butter smooth riding!
  • + 2
 Pure free riding bliss
  • + 1
 Those guys are so f**ing smooth! Amazing!!! (Y)
  • + 1
 Now I want to ride Cgp All day! That was Amazing! Great Work
  • + 2
 Incredible.
  • + 1
 a thing of beauty-thank you...
  • + 2
 mother of pearl!
  • + 1
 Now I know what the riders heaven looks like
  • + 1
 Makes you wanna go out and ride!
  • + 1
 put your headphones on and it is like dreaming.
  • + 1

 Are riders allowed to speed up the footage, or is that legitimate?
  • + 3
 definitely not sped up in any way
  • + 1
 Not gonna lie. I'm still coming back to watch this video. So refreshing to see an edit this original, in a world of hipster, slow mo, cooler-than-everyone-else, kind of videos.
