Speed Metal! Tyler McCaul, Joey Foresta, Tom Isted and Joey Gough unleash the new Force 29 on their home turf. From huge backcountry lines in Utah to big hits at Black Mountains Cycle Centre in the UK, watch ‘em turn the mountain into their personal speed metal show. #feedyourlts #srslyfun


We’ve taken the podium proven Force platform, given it a bulletproof alloy frame, optimized it for 29” wheels and tuned it for riders who want to crank the fun dial up to 11. The new Force 29 will turn local enduros, alpine descents and the bike park into its very own mosh pit.

TMac and Joey Foresta unleashing the Force 29 in their natural habitat. The Force 29 comes with 150mm rear wheel travel and a 170mm fork.

 What is the difference between metal and speed metal? Like where is the line drawn? What is an example of a speed metal band?

 Speed.

 Metallica's debut album Kill 'Em All is a quintessential speed metal album. There's pretty heavy crossover between speed and thrash metal. Judas Priest's album Stained Class is a great, straight up metal album. Although even that has the proto-speed metal song Exciter on it.

 Motorhead is a good example. Speed Metal is different than Thrash, Math, Death, Grind, or Black Metal, however.

 One conserves momentum at relativistic velocities, the other conserves momentum at more pedestrian velocities.

 Speed metal tends to be kinda sleazy, kinda drug-y (yeah, that kind of "speed"), kinda satan-y. It's got roots in NWOBHM (new wave of British heavy metal) and is sort of a less punk-influenced precursor to thrash. Metal subgenres are always a bit loose and hard to pin down, but to give you an idea, here are some of my favorite speed metal albums: Venom - "Welcome to Hell," Midnight - "Satanic Royalty," Motorhead - "Ace of Spades," Speedwolf - "Speedwolf," and Nuke - "Nuke"

 @ScandiumRider: Kill 'em All is one of the first thrash metal albums. The key difference between speed and thrash being the influence of hardcore punk (see all the early Metallica photos wearing Misfits and GBH t-shirts). However, hardcore was influenced by speed, so some see thrash as merely an evolution of speed.

 It’s possible that he sleeps with it on. If so, the answer to your question is no.

 Yeh joey for being such a shredder. Can’t believe you’ve got so far with riding even though you live in Norfolk. Land reclaimed from the sea. Keep on sending.
