Woah. No gloves, track pants, and plenty of raw speed? Looks like there's another Kiwi wildman to keep an eye out for. Sit back and take in this hectic compilation of flat out riding starring Connor Jacob.

 First the song in the 50to01 film, now this. Is there a MTB industry conspiracy to sell more tracksuits?

 More of, a bunch of fanboys showing their uniqueness by copying other riders. Its the same trend happening in skiing with "new wave". At least this dude can shred.

 @scott-townes: or people sick of £120 shorts £150 shoes and kit that makes you look like an 80s neon advert

 @scott-townes: hey man, i happen to find the super cuffed beanie over top of my hood to be just the right amount of uniqueness

 @kingdick: Thank goodness there's plenty of middle ground between absurdly expensive race kits and $10 track pants at your local donation store..... JK, you're right. It must be one massive coincidence of originality....

Connor's one of the most unique kids you'll meet. Definitely not one to copy trends haha. Check the date of this video.

 @scott-townes: More like realizing you can ride bikes wearing whatever the f*ck you feel like...

 @scott-townes: your a joke, don’t you think other riders were wearing the shit you wear long before you did?

 @scott-townes: I would strongly suggest otherwise. This guy is wearing reeboks. thats redefining ridesual (riding casual) game. also mountain bike clothing is not doing a good job of appealing to the younger generation of jib-focused almost street bmx-style riders. The stuff theyre selling makes you look like a dad on a hike, why do you think the kids these days are shreddin around in sweatpants and vans or 5001 shirts. its a new style of clothes for a new generation of riders whose idea of fun is messing around on a bump for an hour, not riding 50+ miles or cranking out dh laps. the current crop of mountain bike clothers are going to be dead if they dont adapt for the oncoming generation.

 I just realized track pants are different than sweat pants. You cannot drywall or equipment operate in track pants. They are for cycling in the woods.
