Zakhar Okunev - Super Happy Sending: This past year I got to send quite a few amazing features. Some features were built by myself, whereas a lot of others were not. A big thank you to all trail builders that create awesome features. In addition, thanks to the people who helped film: @drevisuals, @sickdj17, and Andrew.

All Bodies On Bikes: Kailey Kornhauser and Marley Blonsky are on a mission - a mission to change the idea that people in larger bodies can't ride bikes. The duo aims to make cycling more inclusive, beyond just inviting people of all sizes to ride bikes, but by changing the entire idea of what it means to be a cyclist — not just on screens, but on trails and in people’s minds.




Kenny Smith Hunts Big Mountain Lines in the Chilean Andes - The Good, The Bad & The Foolhardy: Three veteran mountain-bike adventurers—freerider Kenny Smith, photographer Margus Riga, and journalist Brice Minnigh — head deep into the Chilean Andes in a multi-day search for singletrack, scree chutes, and some elusive, black-powder bowls. Seasoned in the self-styled art of unsupported wilderness bikepacking, the longtime friends adopt a loose expedition plan that leaves plenty of room for spontaneity and shenanigans in a laughter-filled mission that is equal parts spaghetti western, The Three Amigos, and a twisted Stephen King novel.




Next Peak: With no start gate, no finish line, and no tape to keep between, the only peak is the one that lies between you and the next descent. Cinematography: Andre Nutini, Liam Mullany. Edit/Motion Design: Zach Rampen.




Credence Bikes - "3": Clips of the entire Credence family laced together by DJ Clint and Charlie C.




CultCrew - Brandon Begin 2021: Always awesome seeing a rider enjoying BMX and life to the fullest. Brandon does all this with his own style, swagger, and creativity. Truly one for the history books here.




Seen Him - Andy Anderson: Featuring Andy Anderson. A film by Zenga Bros, shot in White Rock BC, Canada.




Out There - Alex Olson: Skater, surfer, model, company owner, yogi — Alex can’t be pigeonholed as just one thing. Zoom out to see the whole picture, from 917 back to his home state of CA.




Going Nowhere: Going Nowhere is the newest team video from Vans Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. As covid hit in, in 2020, the team decided to go nowhere and stayed home in their countries, where they filmed this new clip throughout the year. They mainly visited Cologne, Berlin, Hamburg & Stuttgart and had some of the EMEA team joining on this journey. Featuring: Kalle Wiehn, Jan Hoffmann, Joscha Aicher, Marco Kada, Willow Voges, Marcel Weber, Daniel Lepori, Tim Rebensdorf, Julian Ruhe, Roland Hirsch, Danny Stephen, Ruben Lücke, Niklas Schaible, Justen Ernst, Paul Zenner, Conny Mirbach, Daniel Spiegel, and Manu Mayr.




The Lodge Boys: There is nothing stronger than friendships bonded by snowboarding. The countless adventures, epic pow days, chairlift banter and time well spent with your best friends in the mountains are memories that last a lifetime. The Lodge Boys are a perfect example of that. A close group of friends, formed in the misty mountains of the Pacific Northwest. If you ask anybody around they know exactly who these characters are. The pure stoke, high energy, and absolute love of snowboarding is infectious when you're around this crew.




Todo Cambia: What does it mean to be an athlete and live and breathe for your discipline? In search of the most difficult climbing in South America, Facundo Langbehn shows us what it takes to adapt to changing conditions, seasons and disciplines in order to enhance his passion.




We The Power - Official Trailer: A film about the citizen-led community-energy movement in Europe and the visionaries lighting the way.




The Hermit - The True Legend Of The North Pond Hermit: When the news broke that a man had been hiding in the woods of Maine for 27 years, it turned into a media sensation. Overnight, the identity of the legendary 'North Pond Hermit' was disclosed and he became the talk of the town. "The Hermit" is a good-humoured documentary ultimately about the extensive impact made by someone who spent a lifetime trying to erase any hint of his own existence.




2020 was a hard year to get out and find incredible spots to ride but somehow we squeezed at least a few tiny trips into it. On one journey we managed to find this incredible structure from the early 80s. It had a really tricky and bumpy run-up that I had to figure out first. As soon as I got to the top of the over vert structure I realized those outward-facing sharp metal pieces would be another thing that had to be managed while going higher on the structure. On some tries my back wheel would barely clear them by just a few inches.

I really have to know what 111111111111111111111111111111111111117 means! Is it the 111111111111111111111111111111111111117th episode? Pinkbike page?

 I don't know, but after the feature has been running for 111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,117 weeks, they're going to have a new kind of Y2K problem.

 Kranked 4: The bikes might be better today, but that riding is spot on and they were doing it with those bikes back then. That makes it even more amazing today.

 That segment is permanently tattooed in my brain.

 Honestly I'm pretty sure the overall skill level of the sport is regressing due to the mix of Trailf*cks/Ambulance chasers/Bike park mentality, Kranked makes a lot of modern segments look like shit.

 @dbxrace: I'd say that quality bikes and components have more play in "dumbing down" the skill level of today's riders. You used to have to have a tonne of skill to really rip a mtb back in the day.

 @dbxrace: Keep in mind that was the top of the top for that time, if you compare them to todays average advanced rider of course they are going to look better, however if you compare them to todays best, I think you would find that those at the top today are at least the same if not better, while lacking the huck and pray mentality.

 @mammal: Really these bikes were designed to ride this north shore skinny type of riding, super high bb, steep HTA, short reach, short wheelbase. I bet its easier to ride a skinny on one of those bikes rather than a modern enduro bike.
  • 1 0
 @iridedj: I was thinking the same thing, the modern Enduro bike is ideal for faster trails, flow trails and not the old school gnarr where that long, slack and low could get you in all kinds of trouble.

 @PRETENDERS: Trailforks, the location of most trails being available has meant that there is this weird mentality now that every trail should be for everyone, and as a result a lot of trails are getting dumbed down.

 I really like that Kranked video.

However, the 'all bodies on bike' one I need to watch and see what they say because I was never aware that anyone thought peeps with more weight than usual couldn't ride bikes. They said "we are on a mission to change this"... but I wasn't aware there was anything to change. One of my friends from College was trying to lose weight (he was over 250 I believe) and he went out, bought a couple of bikes for him and his wife and rode. No one gave him any shit... but maye this is a problem elswhere.

 I think it's probably more of an issue for overweight people seeing bikes as something not for them because they aren't fit as opposed to anyone specifically saying so.

 @TobiasHandcock: Ah! much better. So more encouragment is needed. I can do that.

I also really appreciate you explaining why, some people (not this time though) just downvote and move on without saying why they don't like what I/you/someone wrote.

 But shouldn’t this then be a boycott against all clothing manufacturers and not just Pat? At least they are doing everything in their power to make positive change where they can, can’t say this is the case with many apparel manufacturers.

 @thatguyzack: Patagonia uses "slave-type" labor to mass produce it's goods. Poor working conditions and little pay. When confronted about it they just blow it off.

 @Uncled: Found two pretty quick. There are articles showcasing their restrictions on second tier suppliers (raw goods). But it took them 4 years to implement anything and there are no consequences if they don't comply.

freebeacon.com/culture/conscious-capitalists-for-slave-labor

As a side note, I don't believe patagonia uses "slave-type" labor in their warehouses. I should have worded my original statement better. But they do have "slave-type" labor in their supply chain. When you give a manufacturer money for their raw goods and don't address their slave labor you are an inhibitor.

 "Poor working conditions and little pay. When confronted about it they just blow it off." @BMXJJ327: in the article you posted it talks about the steps Patagonia is taking to eliminate the issue

 @smashdizzle: Saying you're going to fix an issue to a journalist and fixing an issue are two different things.
