Since the introduction of our Snabb line, the Enduro version has always been in the focus of the media and most riders. However it's actually its smaller brother, the Snabb T that is our personal favourite. Less travel than a full-on Enduro bike but the same aggressive geometry and super tough construction, it's exactly what most of our riders want. Recently our friends from The Perfect Line down in New Zealand took a bunch of our bikes, including the Snabb T1 for a trip around their epic local trails. Apparently one of the guys named Luke decided that sightseeing is not what he wants and took an alternative route down the mountain.

 1) Auto white/colour balance in the software/camera? Rookie mistake...

2) Corey Taylor on vocals makes up for all (Y)

 Maybe/maybe not but that's pretty much what our landscapes look like hence the Maori name 'Aotearoa - Land of the White Cloud'.

 What's the Maori name for blown out highlights and strained shadow compensation?

 Wasnt disputing what your lanscapes look like but im pretty sure that the grass doesnt change colour depending on the orientation of you head?

 @CalumL92 all good but our grass is pretty out there down here.

 @CalumL92 is correct, this is a software export issue. We shot this on a Panasonic GH4 with locked white balance, but we only made the draft cut and didn't handle the final post cut/colour. You can view our cut here youtube cheers!

 There are two of the pics, including the cover photo, where it looks as if they just struck a stationary pose for crisp pics. There's no dust off the rear wheel, or off his foot touched down ...just looks funny to me, and staged.

 Haha @takeiteasyridehard, nah I was definitely moving albeit not super duper fast as it was near 180 switch back, but you can see motion blur on the rear wheel, dust coming off the front and rear tyres and my shoes! Maybe checkout the full size copies here & here cheers!
