Let 'Er Rip:
No amount of snow or ice can stop this Chainsaw from ripping. Kenny Smith, Steve Vanderhoek, and Jack Pelland put the new bike with a legendary name through its paces in the middle of winter. From the first lap on Mount Prevost’s frozen DH tracks the guys pushed the bikes hard in sketchy conditions. After firing up some of the North Shore’s heaviest moves in the middle of winter, they knew this bike could handle anything. It’s a Chainsaw. Let ‘er rip. Video: Brody Jones.
Ryder Bulfone - Same Name, New Everything:
As soon as 20-year-old Squamish local, Ryder Bulfone, received his new Sensor frame, his gears started turning about what the bike could handle. Not long after, Ryder came to us with a concept to show off its capabilities on some of the wild features his home trails have to offer. We knew he’d put the bike through its paces so we were stoked to support his vision! "The video was super fun to make. When I got sent the frame, I instantly thought we could make a cool video showing it’s versatility, especially in a place like Squamish! Being the end of a busy ski season, I literally went for one warm up ride before jumping straight into filming. But like they say, you never forget how to ride a bike!" -Ryder Bulfone.

Parkin Costain - Concurrent:
This was my highlight of last October! Friends and I had an insane time heading down to Virgin to watch Rampage. We were blessed with good weather and got the chance to rip around Utah for a few days after the event. This is the product of a beautiful three days in the desert! It felt surreal to ride down a few zones that felt like a ski line from process to drop in. Stoked to build on this experience and get back to the desert in the future! Filmed by: Caleb Ely & Patrick Conroy
