A family camping trip offered the perfect opportunity for Wade Simmons and Thomas Vanderham to test out their new Powerplays. Wade went the distance, exploring the rugged Rocky Mountain alpine on his Instinct Powerplay, while Thomas pushed his Altitude Powerplay to warp speed, hammering corners and sending every double that laid in front of him. All while saving time to hit the links, search for some trout, and get some quality family time in.

|I've been a believer in our Powerplay bikes from the beginning, and my mind is still racing with all the possibilities they can bring when out on the trail. Our latest version has immense power, massive battery capacity, and has inspired me to ride further and push harder in challenging terrain. I love that the battery is removable and that the Jumbotron top tube displays all the info you’d need and more. Bring on the next generation – and the next ride!—Wade Simmons|

This whole feel-good-camping-trip marketing is some major league bulls**t. But I suppose it sells bikes.
Hum, I think they meant : "Filming the new advertsing of the new powerplay gave Simmons and Vanderham the opportubity to go on a camping trip" haha?.
A - absolutely nothing except an excuse for leisurely time.
Also, great soundtrack—Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever—so good!!!!
E=MC^2, but they would have written it MC^2=E!!!!
Thats just wrong
I still enjoy my regular bike, and nothing beats taking the dh rig to whistler, but lately, especially with how crowded the trails have gotten, I rely on my ebike. I can self shuttle all the best dh trails around which tend to have the least foot traffic on the weekends. It’s a win-win as I get to ride more tame trail riding mid week after work on my regular bike.
I can’t imagine if I didn’t live so close to multiple trail networks…
You just get so much more vert on the ebike, if you aren’t primarily there for the suffer fest…it’s sort of a no brainer.
I used to talk shit on them like the rest of the lemmings, but I decided to buy one to share w my dad. Turned out the things ride damn well. It’s no surprise professionals are using them all the time…there isn’t anyone trying to get more out of their time on bikes than them.
