I'm stoked to announce that I'll be continuing my relationship with Spank wheels and joining a new chapter with IXS!

Sending it in Utah

I figured there is no better place to test out products than Utah. I've been really impressed with the overall strength and performance of Spank's Spike Race28 wheels after a season of use. So I decided to see just how far I could push them on my new Scott on some of the best terrain in the world.

Sending it in Utah

I ended up teaming up with my good friends over at Definition Films to create this edit. After a few hard days of digging and taking some good slams I'm excited to release this edit. I hope you guys enjoy this edit, as much as we enjoyed creating it.

Sending it in Utah

Cheers, Paul.


MENTIONS: @spank-bikes @iXSsports @definitionfilms @PBass775 @SCOTT-Sports

 I have an old dvd disc with a sample from Kona with Paul and Barel riding that I used to watch every friday nite before going to a race on saturday to pump me up. Paul and Fabien are still my heros. Cheers

 Flip can was dope, he's obviously still an insane rider but pretty washed since he gave up on trying to keep up with the slopestyle scene, not gonna lie.

 You know who else isn't trying to keep up with slopestyle? Guys like Zink, Andreu, Aggy, Strait, Sorge, etc.. Slopestyle isn't everything!

 killa prob jus' tryin' to say Bas could be a bigger force on the scene. We all know what he's capable of, but he knows what he's willing to risk & he made the call. Good for him for doing so. At least he's not out bellyaching about not gettin' paid enough like some others do. Wink Any Bas vid is a good vid.

Honestly bruh looks like he'd fit into Fest pretty nicely.

 i was just there Saturday and from what i saw, shredding big lines there is pretty scary. There is a fair amount of large exposure, pretty technical "roll-downs", and landings mixed with really loose sandy style dirt. Definitely a unique place, thats for sure.
