Video: Kenny Smith Sends It in Squamish

Jun 14, 2018

Words: Devinci

Canadian Shredbassador Kenny Smith is a creature of the mossy and the misty. Immersed in his preferred Squamish, British Columbia habitat, this living legend with balls bigger than a grizzly bear, continues to pioneer some of sketchiest, must-stick lines in the rainforest. Since Kenny’s so comfortable with the guinea-pigging program, we recently sent him Devinci’s new AC/ eMTB to test-drive across some teeth-kicking terrain. The outcome’s been nothing short of electric. Watch Kenny as he jams a fork in the socket and sends it through the coastal thicket.

Warring against root wads—and winning.

bigquotesAt 180mm of travel this thing feels more like a DH bike than a trail bike. It’s just so capable and stable. So far it has been able to handle anything I've thrown at it.” - Kenny Smith

“You can almost spot the pub from here.” Kenny in his pre-killing it, contemplative state.

This trail has been rated “O” for Otherworldly.

Rocks and moss and two-wheeled monsters.

Squamish, B.C., a punishing proving ground. AKA, paradise.

 That bike just made a very good rider look very average! Looked too heavy and struggling for traction.

 Exactly what i was thinking. But technology please evolve to have a 1 kg engine with a 1 kg battery and i will consider breaking the bank to buy one.

 Here's an idea. If you don't care for e-bikes on trails ignore this article. Don't comment below. Don't upvote this comment. Don't down vote it. Don't click on the video. Just walk away and leave a vacuum. That will communicate everything that needs to be said. If there is no interest there will be no content on this.

 It worked with plus tyres which ironically ebikes all seem to have.

 That rock roll looks nuts. It's so steep I'm not even sure how you'd go about clearing the moss off the line. 180mm ebike looks sweet. Don't really have a place to ride one where I live, but think about how many more laps you could ride in a day.

 No mention of ebikes in the article turned it off soon as I saw it what a sneaky trick. Also pay attention to the comments section @pinkbike know your audience. You’ve been doing so well over the last year don’t start trying to trick people into watching ebike footage.

 I don’t know if it’s just me, but every time I see a pro riding an e-bike it never looks he’s actually enjoying it. It just feels like they are paid to make it so that it looks like it as fun as a actual bike.

 Even Sam pilgrim despite saying he loved his eBike has gotten haibike to give him both a dh and an enduro that aren't eBikeS

 Loving the comments section. Keep fighting the good fight guys. It’s a different sport go and set up ebike sister site it will be massive and keep that off here. It’s clear no one likes it.
