The Whip-Offs presented by Spank at Crankworx Whistler are always a good time and this year was no different. Riders like Kade Edwards, Vinny Armstrong, Dylan Stark, and more were tossing all kinds of shapes on Crabapple Hits.

 Sick event! but the level of moto whips are on another level. You think mtb will ever reach it? youtu.be/etftKuex62c?t=1473

 Love the Moto whip. It's getting closer and closer in the bike world. But, an engine and throttle can do a lot for you when it comes to being in the air. Rotational mass, etc. Not sure it will every be equal, but it will still be stylish. The guys and gals absolutely threw DOWN this whipoff. Was great to see it in person

 @krashDH85: I don't think it'll ever be equal. On top of the throttle they can use to control the rotation, mx guys also seatbounce off the lip, making for a much more stylish whip (their bikes are almost perpendicular to the ground). I've seen people seatbounce their mtb on small-ish jumps, but it'd take a brave soul to attempt it on Crabapple hits.

 God, got lost in the video rabbit hole for a while there. Hot damn, those are insane.

 Those Mx guys, they're so backwards, they're actually doing 'look forwards' whips

 @fabdemaere: Lack of commitment once off the lip, and inadequate movement with the arms and hips is the main issue.

 @shredright: lmao right, people who get paid to drop massive cliffs on a 35lb contraption lack commitment. Lead the way then, Mr. Shredright

 @fabdemaere: What?! Too many MTB riders don't commit enough when doing whips. Simple as that.

 I'm going with rotational mass.. i.e wheel/tire weight. I bet if one of these riders had more angular momentum to work with they could get the bike turned around more.
