 Kirt is the best. I was wondering about the butt-wrinkles on the new Defend Kevlar pants and they are there in full force.
  • + 26
 Thanks for the stoke! The wrinkles are because the pant was 34 waist and I wear a 32, so they were a bit big for me. When doing vid projects sometimes mistakes happen when ordering the clothing. Shoot happens!

 If you're ever wondering if Kirt was always wild and crazy just listen to Vital podcast with him (part 1&2). Apparently an early nickname of his was Debris Trail. An excellent listen.

 Great Video!! With all the rain SoCal has been getting I bet these trails are not in the best shape unlsess the builders are maintaining them on a weekly basis. I just want to give a shout out to the local trail stewards who build and maintain these trails as they are litterally one of the only trails systems in the area. While stationed out at 29 Palms these trails were a blessing to me and all my fellow riders in the area. Great job on the trails and keep up the good work!

 I grew up in 29 and have ridden here. He made parts of Sidewinder look super simple to ride, yet I struggle to even finish a lap without having to put a foot down. Cool to see the spot get some shine!

 If Kirt is in a vid i'm watching it, simple as that.

 No one looks like they're having more fun when they ride than Kirt. I see a Kirt Voreis video pop up, I know I'm about to have a big smile on my face.

 Where was this filmed? The high desert is approximately gigantic, but those trails look rad. Need to do some camping and riding where ever that is.
