Knolly Team riders - James Doerfling

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.”

bigquotesThis 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!

The Boss!

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.

 Cool to see that "this animal" is still onboard with you !

What about buelher, do he follow the train or he decided to take an other path ?

 Great news indeed. Now we need to see the rest of the current team riders sticking with Knolly. Also, very curious to see the new bike from Knolly that will be released in 2015.

 Top 10 most photogenic riders. Awesome small company that's super lucky to have someone of Doerfling's caliber on their roster. Nice to have a bike that good riders WANT to ride.
Unreal & Builder, both highly anticipated!!!

 I would just like to point out that all of those images in the article that were riding shots are absolutely POD worthy.

 i really hope this decision was a no brainer for knolly. he is the kind of rider that sells bikes. that makes people want to own the bikes because they saw what can be done on them. not because they will do same crazy stuff, no. because they know they will never ever get outbreaked by them. and that they can own at least a piece of doerflings steeze.

 Wow..all the pictures have him with sleeves on.

 A tiny company as one said earlier in a comment, but a company that gets what riders want, and pay attention to feedback. James obviously passionate about riding so it makes sense why he's so excited to stay.

 That night ridgeline is pure EPIC!! One of the most inspiration freeriders out there, can't wait to see what's in store UNREAL

 I still want to see a top level World Cup DHer on a Podium. the bike is good enough, but the budget isn't there - I get that.

 It's called a Podium for a reason you know.
  • 5 0
 It's on the top of the freeride podium. What else is there to worry about?
  • 3 0
 He'll never leave Knolly, like brandon Semenuk with trek ...
  • 7 0
 But think of Trek's Budget in comparison, they can afford to pay top level riders easily. It speak volumes that a great rider like James chose to stay with the little guys, not likely for money but because he loves the product
