Creative stunts and lots of fun corners.

 I love my turbo levo! It is fun af to jump too, the heavier weight down low makes whips feel so good in a weird way. Then I get back on my Demo and it feels like a bmx!

 I expected eBike techy stuff goin uphill an such.
Why even mention he's on an ebike? He's riding bikes just like any regular bike. Just that he is carrying a battery out of no reason for this type of riding Big Grin

Riding is good tho Wink

 Thanks! I just wanted to make a fun video that shows what these bikes can do on the way down.. I think by now its been made clear that an e bike will get you up the hill at ease! Having a battery on the way down is for when I need to get back up the hill 10 more times to lap until I cant move

 Love them or hate them, he was absolutely ripping. I know someone who rides an eBike because he can get more laps on it because he is older. He's 55-56 and still shreds way harder than I do (almost 1Cool .

 Why even use an E-bike, vid was all downhill.....
  • 8 1
 I assume the point of any E-Bike video is at this point to show that they can shred downhill. We know they can go uphill- who wants to watch that? What regular mountain bikers are probably hesitant on still is "yea, but am I sacrificing my fun going downhill with all this talk about 'riding more in less time'?" So there you go, Rigal shreds it good.
Showcasing the basic function of E-Bikes going uphill was the goal 5 years ago. Showing that "they're basically the same going down now" is the goal of marketing now.
