Video: 50 Seconds of Wild Riding with Hugo Frixtalon

Jul 25, 2020
by Ed Spratt  


bigquotesVallnord Bike Park has been open since 27th June and Hugo Frixtalon has already had the chance to come and shred it with his new Meta AM 29!

“The Meta AM 29 is definitely my favourite bike! This is the one I use the most. I always take it with me when I just want to have fun in the bike park or practice enduro. I can do anything on it, it’s so versatile! If I could only have one bike in my garage, it would be the Meta AM 29 for sure,” he says.

 That is not a Nose Bonk; but rather a Nollie. A Nose Bonk is when the front wheel taps an obstacle during airtime after a jump,drop, Bunny Hop, log or rock hop, etc...and before landing.

 After re-watching it looks like it could be a NB and not a Nollie / Nose Manuel off the drop. Up for debate i would say,

 @Mondbiker: Yes but very tough to see at normal speed. At slower playback its obvious.

Now,can it be done as an actual Nollie? Maybe Bernard Kerr could Oblige us with a demonstration.

 Nice, but probably closer to "10 seconds of wild riding" when you take out the intro and account for the slow-mo.

 As ‘one of them’.. can you try to explain the issue with slow-mo?

 I like the paint job on that thing. Reminds me a bit of an old-school Yeti.

 Why?! ....
I thought the clash was hyped for this duty?
Why don't they just make a Metash which is a clash and a Meta mixed .... Then there won't be a need for two ....
A Metash 27" and Metash 29"
