Wharncliffe Woods have been part of the Sheffield scene since day one. Now there’s a new generation of builders and riders taking it to the next level, led by the Clayspades crew. Max, James and Rob may not be household names, but you’ll recognise their trails. Their patch is steep, fast and loose with loads of lines and some big hits. It’s attracted the attention of some big names, but the Clayspades lads are the first to ride every new section, and always in their own style. We thought it was time for the builders to take centre stage, so we gave the boys some bikes and teamed up with Escapade 7 to produce a short film.

There’s plenty of fresh-cut loam on tap as well as flow and jump lines.

The Airdrop Edit got custom green decals for the shoot

Airdrop Bikes is an independent mountain bike brand based in Sheffield. We’ve just released our first bike: the Edit, so we gave the Clayspades crew a blank cheque to ride whatever they wanted, no holds barred. The results are clear in the video. The first batch of Edit frames hits the UK this week... Check out Airdrop Bikes for more. If you like what you see please give Escapade7 some support, there's plenty more to come..

 I like how the video really shows off bothe the trails and the bikes. It's nice to know that at least some of the bike companies (even if it's just the small ones) have the balls to just say to the local lads, here ya go, now try and break it! More companies should do this. Looks like a rad bike, and if I lived in the UK, I would probably consider purchasing one.

 No shit. I didn't read the text and halfway through I thought "what bike is this?" You would normally see a dh rig on trails like this and at this speed. C'mon PB- review!

 Video really cant express how massive some of those gaps are in real life. Ride down a trail... 'oh look a massive lone booter... they must've not built the landing yet?'... no there it is 1/4 of a mile away over in that direction'

 Being an old guy of wharncliffe, I have watched as riders and trails have progressed over the past 20+ years, and it's now massive leap from the old muddy, rooty dh trails of yesteryear.
These guys have turned things around and brought some magic back to the mighty wharncliffe.
Cheers for making me feel old and talentless.
Well done guys.

 The pacing on this video was bloody brilliant! Every time a shot changed, it was perfect on beat. almost so much that I could predict when the next shot would be coming. I cannot put into words how perfect this video was! Only thing I could do to make this video better is to grab myself a better set of speakers! Well done must go to Ed Brazier for making the film.

 Pleasure to say i get to ride with these boys on a regular basis. They're absolutely spot on dudes. They're stoked to let you ride their shit and are always happy to show you their new stuff. Their work ethic is second to none, the trails are always prime and they just kill it every time. They truly deserve all the credit they get for their trails and their skills. Badass pinners.

 Yeah they were on 150 pikes. The video shows what the bikes can do fairly well, could easily build them up nice and light for xc as well. They're are available for test rides, drop Ed an email. www.airdropbikes.com
