by Teton Gravity Research  



It’s a moment time-stamped in our brains. Maybe it was a birthday gift. Or perhaps you saved paycheck after paycheck to finally purchase one. However you met your first bicycle, it was the pedal strokes that came afterward that hooked you onto something intangible. Adventure. Connection. Freedom. From the producers of UnReal and the director of Where The Trail Ends comes Accomplice, an homage to all the crazy adventures and crazier comrades that result from our finest sidekick. On the surface, Accomplice takes you to mind blowing locations across the globe with the world’s top riders. But beyond that, Teton Gravity Research’s latest film celebrates how the bicycle is more than just a mode of transportation - it’s a vehicle for the human spirit.


Check out more about Teton Gravity Research's newest mountain bike film, including updates on the Tour here.


The Accomplice tour launches July 8th, bringing TGR's latest mountain bike film to our biggest screens ever as the TGR tour heads to drive-in theaters around the globe.

Rally the crew, load up the car and get hyped to watch Accomplice on 100-foot wide screens as we blend the old school vibe of drive-in theaters with TGR’s award winning production quality. Add your car horns to the mix as you get stoked for biking while watching the best riders in the world - you’ve got a whole new viewing experience we can’t wait to share with you all.

We realize that not everywhere has a drive-in theatre. Rest assured - we are planning to add additional locations in the coming weeks as more drive-in theaters open, traditional theaters get approved to reopen, and we create our own pop-up drive-in experiences to share this film on the big screen in as many places as possible.

In locations we are not able to host a tour stop, we will be adding virtual events, where you will be able to watch the film with a Sierra Nevada in hand while still experiencing some of the key elements from our tour, including prize giveaways from our partners, an ability to watch with your friends, and even athlete and production team Q&As. If you do not see your location on the current tour list, please sign up for updates at this link.

Teton Gravity Research is hyped to share Accomplice with you!

 I had to stop the clip at 0:52 to understand what Semenuk is doing. Everything is upside down, x-upped, cancaned and i have no idea where he came from and where he is going. Legend!

 @Germanmike: Get's his first bike - instantly bins the trainer wheels, then manuals it down the driveway while signing his first pro deal is how I envision it went down.

 Unpopular opinion here, that will get me roasted for sure:
Am I the only one that, while not denying a single gram of unreal talent from these guys, its not a massive fan of massive Crankworks or Rampage stunts style edits? I always feel a little disconnected when watching these, as if I'm looking at CGI (this alone speaks for what they are doing...). In the end I get a "wow, that's cool!" and that's it.
I get much more engaged and entertained by British Slice of Pie style things, or some of Nukeproof's promos

 No roasting. MTB is a broad church and different things appeal to different people dude.No big deal as long as you are riding.

 Not a roast because as a 46 year old dad I hear ya. But what I love seeing is the progression on how these guys got to that level of stunt and it seems like this film will show the trials and failures to get there too. That sort of thing makes it more real, level sets for me, and can offer a lot of inspiration for anyone trying to get to one next level, regardless of the level they are at. Also makes me think / reminds me to not hold my kids back, who also love bikes, just because my days of highland mountain bike park are over and picking up my 29 er this weekend (aka dad bike)

 No roasting bud. I still get inspiration from watching the big hits in these videos. Hell its fun to even visit some of the places that have been featured in these videos and seeing the lines in person gives you even more respect for the riders.

 Y'know an idea just came to me, wouldn't it be fun to get these guys together with IHFT Films and do a Whistler Joey edit or something like that. Crazy MTB skills combined with sarcasm at it's best, that pretty much sums up what Pinkbike is all about!

 What appears to be great about this movie is that it provides us with connection between the insane stunts, and the stories of those who've worked so hard to get there. So while I agree that I feel disconnected from things like Rampage, this movie seeks to help us feel more connected.

 Not unpopular at all. I prefer watching World Cup DH. I think these films are generally designed to be more than showcasing talent of certain individuals. To some of us, that's all it is. To others its a reminder of the impact mountainbiking has had in your own life. For myself, through life's trials and tribulations, its been one constant thing for me. Its brought me closer to my wife and kids. Its brought me closer to friends. Its been an awakening for me many times over. Riding has reminded me that I'm human just like the rest of you. It continues to remind me that life is short, and to not take the time you have on this planet for granted. While my connection with bikes is uniquely my own, my experiences are not unique at all. When its all said and done, its all about what speaks to you. Nobody can dictate that, but you. So you do you man.

 I like the premise of your bike being your accomplice. As a kid my accomplice (a walmart mongoose 20”) betrayed me several times. One of the most memorable betrayals at my accomplices hands (wheels?) was when I had the audacity to wave at an elderly couple while pedaling out of the saddle down the street. I met the pavement very quickly. Thanks accomplice.

 The flash old footage of them is reminiscent of the skate video New Driveway by the Worble. 10/10 recommend if you are into skate videos. It's on Youtube along with their other video Toxic Planet. Oh the bike movie looks cool too.

 Well, to me that trailer means, that you need to be born with "a love to ride". When I was doing driving license, my father said: "You'll see, when you start driving cars, you'll stop riding bikes". Guess what? It was 23 years ago and I still love riding bikes!

 @TetonGravityResearch so stoked! You all always release bangers! Can't wait to catch it in Denver! Love the transition to drive-in theaters, smart way for people to get out while still monetizing the tour.

 People actually remember their first bike?
  • 1 1
 I don't think I remember my very first, but I remember getting a purple GT performer for Christmas. I must've been 11 or 12? Got stolen a year later and then recovered months later by the local Police. Can't remember what bikes preceeded that one though.

 bmx-style bike that we had to assemble at home. The part I'll never forget is that it came in a cloth bag - literally a sack of parts and assembly isntructions.

 I do. It was a red and white Kent with training wheels. I remember kicking the training wheels enough times to bend them and get them off when I was 5.

 I do mine was a 20" Murray bike with a crappy suspension fork. Rode the outta that thing.

 Yup, it was an orange Kent from Toys r Us; the poor guys Stingray, rode it from age five until I got into skating, moved into BMX in the late seventies, never looked back, riding trails for fifty years, boom!

 I'm assuming the accomplice is the parents who got them started on this reckless and dangerous habit? All the kid footage was great.

 Hi Franklin! The ticket prices vary by event, but if you're seeing $40 at your local drive-in, that's the price for a carload. You can find shows closest to you at tetongravity.com/tours
