Must Watch: 'Fuego' Featuring Kilian Bron

Feb 5, 2023 at 7:51
by COMMENCAL BIKES & SKIS  


Kilian Bron and his team are back with a new visual spectacle! From Guatemala to Peru via Bolivia, for two months the dream team scoured the most beautiful spots to make amazing memories and bring back breathtaking images.

From their arrival at the foot of the Fuego volcano the day before its historic eruption, to the colourful facades of Barrio Chualluma in La Paz, through the geological formations of the Valle de las Animas and the contrasts of the Auzangate, without forgetting meeting with the Cholitas Escaladoras women from the Aymaras indigenous community who climb and conquer summits! Kilian has been meeting these people and experiencing the craziest spots on his Commencal Meta SX.

An ode to escape and adventure travel, Fuego is a new masterpiece, and Kilian and his team hold the secret...

 Good gravy, we've seen some amazing cinematography in mountain bike movies over the years but I don't know if we've ever seen anything like this one! The Nat Geo vibes are so ridiculous it almost overpowers the legit riding skills of Kilian. Bravo to everyone!

 And this cinematography next level transcends our sport bringing it to way larger audiences.

 Someone didn't watch Where the Trail Ends. That was amazing, love to see people are still out there exploring some wild big mountain riding.

 @kyleluvsdh: That's good stuff. Will to roll is strong. It's probably not a PB Mod conspiracy to deny eyeballs though.

The lady I was talking to said "It's not front page material", but she herself posts random stuff on the front page that realistically has less significance being there than this. Razz

 at least these inflated bike prices are helping to fund something that is so definitively art and culture representing something we love.

 Might as well have "Video of the Year" in the title, even if it is only February.

 Not wrong. My vote is locked and I feel 100% confident that nobody will even come close.

 ... and while they're right to call it out, isn't it funny that an advertising brand can claim themselves "If you only watch one riding video this week, this should be it."

 I’ve been into mtb for 8-9 years now and this is THE most impressive biking-related video I’ve ever seen. The nature shown here, and the way it was shown - absolutely amazing. Views. The music. The cinematography. Riding was top class too. MASTERPIECE.

 Stunning work,congrats to all involved.
I feel that people don't fully appreciate what Commençal has been doing with these videos,showing us beautiful locations of our world and amazing riding.
I hope a compilation will be available someday.

 Everyone bikes for different reasons, freeride, racing, fitness, etc. This one hits home for me. Use biking to see amazing people/places all around the world. Don't get me wrong, I get pumped seeing the crazy stuff but this gets me inspired.

 I think I'm getting old. Amazing visuals and locations... massively degraded by forced 'shaky cam' and scene changes every 2 seconds.
Wow isn't that prett_[scene change] ok, wow isn't tha_ [scene change] that looks interes_ [scene change] that's impressi_[scene change]...
LET ME SEE IT!!

 That segment riding the red dirt hillside with the snow/glacier covered mountain in the background. Makes you stop and think for a second about how f**king cool the planet we live on really is.

 The riding was great, the scenery was phenomenal, but is it messed up that I think the best part of the video was the human bike rack on the back of the bus?
