Video: Singletrack & Simplicity in 'Every Side of the Mountain’

That unbeatable feeling of rhythm on two wheels.
Moving at pace through turns and trees and terrain.
Floating down trails limitless and free.

The search for singletrack and simplicity took Theo Fellgett out of his previous life in London to a time forgotten European village where he has spent several years rebuilding a stone cabin to be nearer the best mountain biking in the world.
‘Every Side of the Mountain’ is a rusty hinged window onto a life in the hills, surrounded by trails and history and space to roam.

Starring the Rift Zone Carbon XR made for fun, on every side of the mountain.

The Rift Zone is our most speed oriented MultiTrac bike, created for the rider looking for the speed and roll over capabilities of 29” wheels in a trail capable package. Long, low, and slack trail geometry is more aggressive than an XC race bike for more control at top speed, and more fun while chasing seconds.

XR = "Xtra Rad" - the spec that we at Marin spec on our own personal bikes and feel offers you the rider something that will put that extra little bit of smile on your face. Burlier tires, bigger rotors along with a Fox Factory series Coil shock on the rear and beefier Fox Performance Elite Float 36 forks up front make this the trail bike for those wanting to get XTRA RAD.

 Not that I'd ever be likely to go but - anyone know what village this is & why it appears practically abandoned? Maybe one dude in the pedal-around-town section but obviously 1 or 2 videographers as well. A totally unique vid tho, well done.

 Such a great video, love everything about this including the Gary Paulsen reference... an SSR session mid edit is def not something you see everyday... Have to say I'm concerned about the cough starting at around the 8 minute mark, sounds like the omichronic variant possibly

 Very nice Video but i dislike people who do shortcuts just for their personal speed. Not good for our sport in times of growing amount of riders as a lot of trails are suffering under the sum of speedlovers

 Yup, some trails are just getting wider and straightened out by folks taking shortcuts.

 But how can I appear faster on Strava if I don't make the trail straighter? Wink
