Big Mountain shredder James Deorfling has inked a contract extension with Knolly Bikes through 2015 & 2016. James has been a staple for the Knolly brand for the past four years testing his own limits and capturing amazing images across the globe. James is no stranger to working hard to promote himself and sponsors through direct sponsorship obligations and the industries top productions such as Freeride Entertaiments “Where The Trail Ends,” “Rad Company” and recent work on Anthills newest production “Unreal.”
|This will be my 5th and 6th year with Knolly and I could not be happier. Working with a company that truly still believes in FREERIDE is so awsome! I can't wait for the journey ahead and more great years with a great company! Yeewwww!!!!|

We hooked James up with a custom Real Tree Camo build for Rampage. More to follow on this as we look to expand on the immense amount of positive feedback we received on this bike.
James has been known to step up to big moves. Here he guinea pigs the Oakely sender at the 2013 Rampage. He barely escaped.
James and Margus did a trip to the Yukon earlier this year where James elected to take his Knolly Warden. As you can see from the images, the Warden can do everything without compromise. Well...maybe you won't see James hitting the Oakley sender at Rampage on the Warden but you can bet it is good for everything else.
At Knolly we are committed to our riders developing long term sustainable partnerships. James continues to be a great fit for our brand. Work ethic, professional personality, feedback on product development and simply being one of the strongest Big Mountain riders in the industry are just a few reasons why we are excited to continue our partnership with James. As long as James is shredding we plan to keep him on a Knolly.
Another morning in the backcountry, another day of shredding for James.
What do rednecks do when camping in the backcountry? They put their lights on and ride gnarly ridges. Not recommended.
James has also been spending time with Scott Secco filming for the Spring release of "BUILDER." So far the footage is looking epic!
Keep your eyes open for James in 2015 as he plans to work on various projects. He’s been named as one of the main riders in “Where The Trail Ends 2” and has been filming for “Builder” and “Unreal.” We plan to launch a new, innovative bike in 2015 and James will be front and centre helping us to share the bike to the public.
Red Podiums are now in stock. Get em while they're hot!
Thanks for all your hard work and positive attitude James. We’re stoked too!!!knollybikes.com
