Swedish slopestyle and freeride athlete Martin Söderström has amassed a long list of slope podiums, video parts, and more in his 15-year career. He announced his retirement from professional riding last summer, and dropped that he was parting ways with Specialized a few days ago.

It's time for a new chapter now as he announces a new partnership with Scott Sports, and we're looking forward to seeing what they have in store.

 @likeittacky: to each their own, I think the new Genius is one of the sickest looking bikes out there

 @drbino: I think it looks great with black, blue, grey, or white, but against that yellow, it's pretty darn bad.

 @likeittacky: these bikes look worse in person. Im still getting over a tummy ache from seeing one this weekend.

 @likeittacky: great input dude! tell us you have nothing of substance to say without telling us you have nothing of substance to say. On every article, every day. It's ok to read and not comment on EVERY article.

 Too bad X-ups, bar spins and good whips would cut all his internally routed brake hose's

 Very cool. Awesome rider and seems like a genuinely good dude. What a gift to be with Specialized that long and to get on with another solid brand at this point in the game. Looking forward to some fresh riding!

 Lots of Red Bull helmets in this article.

 @vinay: Those are old photos and videos. He and RB decided to go separate ways last year, hence Martin wearing a “regular” helmet these days.

 @Glisseur: Interesting to see Scott allows the news to drop yet doesn't have a video handy with his current sponsors. I don't know about the instagram stuff (it doesn't show in my browser) but in the video and image here Specialized and Red Bull are getting all the attention and exposure.
