Video: Remy Metailler & Cube Bikes Part Ways After 4 Years Together

bigquotesAfter 4 awesome years together with Remy Metailler the time has come to say goodbye.

It was an awesome journey together with you. From sending monster gaps to smashing insane urban downhills. From Red Bull Rampage to so many videos on YouTube, you never failed to entertain.

Thank you for the great memories and the outstanding content you produced.

We wish you all the best for your future, keep on scrubbing Rem Dog.
Cube Bikes


bigquotesThank you Cube Bikes for four years! Our relationship has come to an end. Signing with Cube at the end of 2016 was very exciting as the brand was huge in Europe, but still pretty unknown in North America.

Cube trusted my ideas and gave me the freedom to pursue my vision of free riding on their bikes. From Red Bull Rampage and Urban Downhill to finding new lines on my favourite trails in Squamish, I have had so much fun on my rides!

I'm really proud of the work we have done together over the past four years. It's been a great experience and it has been super cool to see the bikes evolve the way they did, and I have learnt a lot along the way.

Thank you again for your trust and support.

Cheers, Prost, Santé, Salud!
Remy Metailler

 He was a bad investment for Cube. He rode so fast in his videos I only found out he was on a Cube today in this article! Wink

 Word on Vital forums is that he has broken several frames since he is on Cube. The dude also says he has proof, but won't make it public. I wouldn't want to ride frames that keep breaking, specially sending such massive stuff. That alone explains why a rider would not renew his contract with Cube.

 Remi is awesome and a loss to Cube. TBH though, I have not seen any Cube bikes here in the PNW (I guess I should ride more than Squamish and the North Shore to find them) but they probably are around here somewhere. With where Remi is located, it would be great for Commencal to be his fame sponsor. They are in Squamish so he can certainly push the brand. Yoann did a fantastic job but his videos weren't as frequent as Remis'. I miss the "Into the gnar (Use Yoann's accent for this)" but I am glad Remi became more frequent. So, here's hoping that Commencal pick him up.

everyone getting into the sport here is buying heavily discounted cubes from bike shops.You can get the top of the line spec with carbon frame and fox factory suspension for like 2800 eurobucks sometimes.

 @Upduro: yeh,I know they're a German brand.They are unbelievably cheap second hand here.Hopefully having Danny Hart on board might raise their profile like he did with Saracen.

 I was wondering the same thing. Apparently there are 13 stores in BC that sell them but I'm not sure how many of them carry inventory or if they can just order you one. Aside from Remy's edits I'm not sure I'd even know that cube exists. Always seemed like an odd relationship given they weren't doing anything else to promote the brand here in Canada. Was glad Remy had the support though and hopefully his new deal is even better! One of the best riders on the planet.

 @jase111171: Germany, Swiss, Italy, here you could see a lot of Cube, their Stereo 120/140/150/170 are great bike and it's a joy ride them. And no I haven't one of these, but I tried them.

 Does Norco have a freeride lifestyle rider? I know they have a strong young race team from crankworks this year. I feel like Remi could fit the non racing bill for them.

 I never quite understood why they sponsored a BC based freerider. I mean its cool that they supported Remy, but it didn't really fit their brand image for sensible, affordable, slightly conservative but very well speced bikes. Thats pretty much the opposite of what is selling in BC.

PS: And yes, Cube is huge in central Europe. One of, if not the largest store brand in terms of number of bikes sold.

 Every growing up kid here in Germany starts with a Cube bike (the 240). Every shop sells them. In the shop the bikes look cool with their flashy colours and high end spec. Any grom who is watching fridayfails also knows Remy.
I do think he did a great promotion job for them. Too bad all Cube bikes except the DH may not be used in bike parks.

 @Ttimer: I think Remy gave legitimacy to the brand in that the stuff he does is far beyond most of us so it kinda gives you some reassurance that the frame will handle anything “we” can throw at it...

 @friendlyfoe: pretty sure these shops only had commuters and low end road bikes - i have only ever seen the odd commuter on the road . Some of these shops dont even list Cube on there websites. Maybe the lack of Canadian orders means Cube doesn’t need Canadian riders- is Gullevich gone as well??

 Man, with the volume, frequency and quality of his videos, I think he brings tremendous value to his sponsors.

Seems like a nice guy too. I've never ridden Squamish (possibly might never), but if I ever had the good fortune to meet / ride with the guy, I'd trust him not to let me get myself killed. That's not something you can say about a lot of people who have exponentially more talent than yourself!

 Given the number of riders he has filmed with on Devinci Spartan's this last year (free marketing for Devinci) it would be fail on their part not to become his frame sponsor

 Love Remy. A proper legit rider with skills to backup his Youtube chanel. No arrogance, no bullsh1t, just straight up great riding and videos. He gives great value to his sponsors unlike other YouTubers out there. He deserves a big bike sponsor definitely more so than another Youtuber from Squamish.. don't want to mention his name but apparently he's sponsored by Scott. I mean, Scott! WTF.
