Episode 1 of the CLLCTV Vowels series sees freerider Kaos Seagrave head out to what could arguably be called as the birthplace of freeride itself; Utah.

Over just 9 days Kaos and filmer Joe Simkins built a line in the desert dust, battled with snowstorms and scorched under blazing heat to bring you Kaos’s first edit since he embarked on his freeride career after leaving the life on the world cup circus last year. The result is an effortlessly stylish edit that highlights his mesmerising skillset on two wheels. Featuring everything you’d expect to see from Utah, from dusty ridge lines to mind-boggling gaps, Kaos’s Vowels Episode sees him put his own stamp on such an iconic landscape.

Utah Sunsets are made of dreams

The most beautifully built corner we've seen in some time

No Utah edit would be complete without a good ridgeline shot

Desert life comes with a side by side.

Same luscious corner, different angle

The man of the day, Mr Scott Hart was dedicated to smoothing out every inch of Kaos's line.

Kaos making bikes look effortless

Checking the goods

No light work for Kaos either, grafting hard to build, maintain and then send his track.

Celebrating after wrapping up in an awesome few days of shooting

Kamloops and the BC interior from 30+ years ago would like to have a word with you.

 Calling it vowels is kind of lame. We’re laughing at you canyon marketing managers, not with you.

 That back flip to nose manual was probably the coolest thing I’ve seen done on a bike

 Correct me if someone did it before him, but I think Dj Brandt did it first (on a mtb at least).

 Hmmm... it just ended and I'm left wondering... was that really it? I was really hoping to see more of Kaos actually ripping it.

 Felt exactly the same^^ Shame because he's such a sick rider.

 I'm hoping a more feature length film will come from all the Vowels episodes... Maybe Pilgrim will release a 10min version on his channel.

 Judging by the snow in the mountains behind him, I’m guessing they were limited in the terrain he could ride. It’s been a sloppy winter down there.

 y bt m t t (ya beat me to it)... but yeah, is there anyone that 1) doesn't think Kaos is unreal (in spite of this blip article) and 2) that CLLCTV and other similar abbreviations are dumbass. Every time I see it I still think 'whaaa, who? oh...". Detracts from things in my view. Just use vowels, its fine.

 Kaos' Rampage audition?

 Would be good to see him and Kade there. The format is very tired now so big changes need to happen, a completely new set of riders would make a good start.

 @markcorrigan: Isted too.

And not forgetting Brendog, so he can get robbed again...
