Must Watch: Kade Edwards Tears Up Dyfi Bike Park in 'Sound of Speed'

by Ed Spratt  

bigquotes5 years on from his last Sound of Speed instalment with Kaos Seagrave, Kade Edwards returns with his first solo edit.


Red Bull’s Sound of Speed series showcases the very best of the world’s MTB riders in pure video form, with just the sound of the bike, rider and the trail they are riding to enhance the experience for the viewer. It’s a series which has featured the best that MTB has to offer, with the likes of Tahnée Seagrave, Tomas Slavik and Brage Vestavik showcased in recent years.


This edit is classic Kade. Fast, flowing and aggressive riding, combined with unique and beautiful lines. His original take on well-ridden features in Wales’ Dyfi Bike Park is a sight to behold. Sit back and watch one of the best bike handlers in the business do what he does best.
Red Bull

bigquotesI love the Sound of Speed series. It does such an amazing job of capturing the rawness of MTB. It’s always so much fun filming projects like these and I’m so stoked with the final result. Kade Edwards

 I reckon that whole video is just Kade trying to go fast enough to get away from Dan after grinding the top off his berm in the first shot

 Such a great series. Whomever is leading these seems to have a knack for bringing it all together: great shots, obviously lots of attention to the sound and the riders also really seem to bring it on for SoS. Love it!

 Couldn't agree more. Also, Kade had a nac-nac at the end which brought it all together, ha.

 Nice, but Brage's Sound of Speed is still undethronable.

 @danstonQ I don't think anyone will ever dethrone that video. But this one (Kade's) was fabulous! What a great rider so much style and control.

 The one issue being that Brage is lacking in the speed department after watching Kade or Finn. Not taking away from the massiveness of his moves.

 @genericmk: Hard to truly judge speed in an edit, but Finn's new vid was fantastic! Such a good rider

 whoever was the decision maker that made a decision that influenced on Kade's decision not to race anymore should be fired. Guy is awesome to watch. If not racing means more video parts, then it's all good.

 I would argue they deserve a promotion! Kade videos> Kade racing all day

 Beautiful. Between the sound and the shot choices they do a great job of showing how bumpy the surface is even on a bikepark track. I love these edits because I feel like I can imagine the tires tearing thru the dirt and feel the casing pinging off of stuff. It's amazing, I love it.

 Lamp genie comes up and you can choose to ride like Kade, Bringhurst, Bryn Atkinson or Atwill, but only one of them. If you make that wish, you're obliged to release edits as often as posible.

 @aug7hallak: I'd take Bringhurst for his versatility. This guy can ride pretty much anything, as demonstrated in his latest edit (All Ways).

 @aug7hallak: Edwards Vs atwill is a tough one...
  • 1 0
 @aug7hallak: Kade’s riding makes me too nervous. He always looks likes he’s on the fine line of in control. I’m going with Atwill
  • 2 0
 @SW2020: but imagine being able to ride that consistently, that far beyond the line...so good! But I agree that it always looks like a party when atwill rides.
  • 2 0
 @aug7hallak: I think I'd take Bringhurst as well, the skill up and down is amazing.

 Just… I haven’t been this excited to get out and ride for a while. This is how I FEEL when I’m riding, this is how I’d explain it to others, no where near what my actual riding LOOKS like mind you but we can all dream!

 minus the last gap, it's crazy that he's boosting that huge and still landing sweet spot on those landings. Dyfi is wild.

 wdym minus the last gap it was nuts

 @Flaminturkey: I mean he went way past the landing on that one. on the others he was basically landing where you're supposed to

 Is it me or when he looks back out of the Landrover, does he look like Renton from Trainspotting?

 Bloody Love Kade… and bloody love the sound of speed series!

 That was a long ass reel, and it didn't even have a trending song in it. Don't know how this kid is going to get any attention to it this way. Must be older than he looks, going with that movie like video format.

 I welcome as many down votes as you can click upon me!

I think Kade can ride this well even on proper trails. Why use this smoothed out flow trails? I can't jump like he can, neither scrub over horizon, but man it's soooo boring these flow trails.

 SHREADER!!! In my mind that's how hard I ride, not reality tho. No comparison Kade is Kade, you do you BooWink I'll watch'em...

 Awesome edit .... builds the stoke for riding season coming up. Interesting to note that this must have been filmed awhile ago since he's on a Blackbox fork it seems.

 Hope he comes back to racing that whole story of what happend is ridiculous and how it affected him mentally is hobble what they did
