The North American monsoon is a pattern of pronounced increase in thunderstorms and rainfall over large areas of the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico, typically occurring between July and mid September. During the monsoon, thunderstorms are fueled by daytime heating and build up during the late afternoon-early evening. Typically, these storms dissipate by the evening, and the next day starts out fair, with the cycle repeating daily. The monsoon typically loses its energy by mid-September when much drier conditions are reestablished over the region.

One amazing side effect of these summer rains is almost daily perfect trail conditions. Revel team rider Mason Bond takes advantage of the added traction with his Rascal on his local trails in Flagstaff, AZ.

 I've ridden pretty much all the trails in this video and Mason is going Mach 3 on them, absolute insanity! Sliding slabs on Private Reserve is next level, kudos my man!

 Monsoon riding days are summer-time powder days. Gotta love the Flagstaff chunk!

 Looks 1000000% more fun than anything I’ve ridden in Sedona!

 As someone who rode both for a few months, in my opinion it depends on what you like. I personally really enjoy all the tech in Sedona, but if I just wanna blast some DH (and climb for a while at altitude for it), I stay up in Flag.
