 A front fender would have been beneficial.

 @danrowe: wouldn't..think about the mass of the snow(not like mud)...its ok without to have more clearence
  • + 1
 @taifi: watch the snow roost off the front wheel and directly into their full face helmets! That's what I am referring to. :~>
  • - 2
 @danrowe: yup, i see, my point was that with a fender upfront the quantity of snow blasted by the wheel has to go somewhere not to stop the front wheel

 @MtbPanda: So if my opinion doses not agree with yours I have ruined the(website) internet? That's has to be the smartest post I have ever seen on here.
Next time I have a opinion I will run it by you first as not to post a bad one. I sure don't want to be responsible for ruining the whole interned. I sure hope I can sleep now.

 Thank you Specialized for making a bike advertisement less like one and more like a bunch of guys just having fun on bikes.

 Snow heli-biking is the next e-biking, except even dumber.

 Just saying. If you try snow riding, you're probably going to spend 90% of the time riding like at 1:30.

 That segment totally cracked me up. Glad they posted some fails.

 @properp: all good ... pinkbike commenters would upvote someone scuba diving w a Mtn bike and be like “yaaaaahhhh real mtn biking”

 Exactly. What a waste of jet a.

 Lets see...Specialized said to Matty H. "Listen, we're gonna pay you to take a helo ride to the top of a virgin hill, and ride an S-Works D8 down several times.
Whadaya think?"
Nah, gimme a snowboard

 I can’t work out which is more futile, this or sandboarding!

 If you have something that flies and Common Sense you fly your bicycle to somewhere where it's warm and ride. Who takes flight to dump their bike off in knee-deep snow? Idiocracy

 @properp: @properp: It's called 'fun'. Maybe partake in some of that once in a while and you wouldn't be such a f*cking killjoy sat at the internet all day

 That looked like fun, but also thought it would be more fun aboard the arbor

 You mean a Never Summer. Arbor boards do look cool though, as wall art.

 @Boardlife69: Yeah, but Never Summer doesn't sound like a something, a mountain biker would like

 Timed it great boys! And some Frazey tunes to boot.

 Forget the skis. This would make much more sense on a fattie.

 This promotion is probably mostly aimed at people who do not have a lot of experience combining bikes and snow. The window where you could actually ride a dh bike on powder snow would be so limited that it would mostly just be frustrating. A fatbike gives more flotation and would widen the window some but still the combination of slope and depth of snow would be pretty narrow. (you would need a very steep slope, a limited amount of snow and professional level skills to stay up even for a short time - or not a lot of snow at all - it would probably be pretty fun on the right terrain if there wasn't enough snow to ski yet) In any substantial amount of snow skis or a board would make way more sense except as advertising.
  • + 1
 Looks like these guys are having far too much fun to be concerned with whether or not the PB critics approve, think it’s feasible, think they should have brought fat-bikes, skis, snowboards or that the grade of the mountain and consistency of the snow was conducive to riding a bike in it effectively.

 Don't give the Demo 8 all the credit! I spy a Kona at 1:20! @konaworld

 Fun music with what seemed like a fun time. Matt’s l a nature adventure architect.

 If they try a snowscoot maybe they will find out how much more fun on the snow it is compared to a normal DH bike.

 So rad! Met Matty once at coast gravity. He, Hunter, and all those boys are so nice and such shredders. Ride on boys, another dope vid!

 Well once again the pinkbike hater brigade strikes! Great edit, It make me want to go have fun instead of going to work. Crushing pow on anything is fun. DIE WHINEY TROLLS!
