Steffi Marth & Micayla Gatto Compare their Hometown MTB Scenes in 'Canada vs. Saalbach'
Wow wow hold on. The headline hit me hard. Comparison of Saalbach and Canada? What would you want to compare Bikepark wise? The trails ist Saalbach are the one of worst you can find in Austria, they are dangerous! You think when you let it roll you have the speed for the upcoming jumps is right? Like most of the time in Canada? Nope. Hit your Brake. Slow down an unknown amount and you can survive the jump. Turns without a berm after jumps? They got them all. Wood drops where you again are not able to let it roll? You have to step off your bike. Look at the feature. Get back. Dial in your speed with the brake and hope for the best. I am a good experienced rider but these things were annoying me. Before my last Saalbach visit I was in Canada. The difference hit me hard. The people and culture are great. But guys the trails are not pure fun or safe. Comparisons to Canada... Saalbach is far of.

Video: Aggy Rides an eMTB in Kona's 'Your Brain on E'
2018...Rise of the EMTB?! :D Let's be honest, it took us a while and a lot HATE to get to this point. But finally we re closer to the next level. For all you fearless gravity kids, EMTB is nothing we should worry about. Its a (okay somehow expensive) gift AND its FUN³ Thanks Pinkbike for not creating 2 pages for E and nonE MTBs....

Video: The Coastal Crew's Perfect eMTB 1-Shot
@sam264: I was able to crush the Strava downhill times from my Slash 29" with my Powerfly 9 LT+ EMTB. They are not bad at jumping or nimble stuff. But I was thinking that too. So I learned a lot new since I got the Powerfly.

Trek Powerfly LT 9 MY19 - First Ride
@khakiflame: so we got no discussion point here. Just stop hating emtb related stuff just to make you feel better and push your ego, because you don't NEED it. It is an option, not a NEED. It is a hobby, nothing which keeps me alive. No one needs 300 hp/ps cars, but they are cool and exist. So what, the world keeps on turning. I am tired of this anonym hate an troll thing here.

Trek Powerfly LT 9 MY19 - First Ride
@khakiflame: you are a brave man, completely fine if you keep it real, but who cares.... Like those days when everyone cried: Enduro is gay, 29ers are only for losers.bla bla bla. The story repeats its self every time but no-one wants to remember. I am also fine with this people who are not able to see the possibilities, instead of bashing, hating, trolling against something they don't understand. I feel sorry for you. I always expected more open minded people in this young sport, but no way, Wochenende have more hardliners than every other old sport has. This is my first season with an EMTB and I am as fit as never before, I was able to drop my body fat again from 14 to 10 %, although I was already fit before, training in this high pulse areas was never possible on normal enduros. At all, so stop crying when you see an EMTB post, just scroll over it if you don't like it. What a kindergarten

@Ozziefish: Are you kiddin? When I go out for a ride, in ECO I can shred with the non powered boys. Having a power hour in EMTB mode, I can have a party with the powered people. Or I go with my enduro and my wife with the powered on on the same trails. So don't tell the internet "its another sport". Thats ridiculous. Life must be pretty sad if you guys only came here for emtb bashing, get out and ride!

Rémi Thirion Gets Sideways In An eMTB Shredit
Jerome Clemes and Fabien Barel are the silent EMTB Pros who like this electric stuff. Why should others don’t like it too? The hate for EMTB is like, those days.... 27,5 / 29“, dropper seat post, oh and of course Enduro (gayduro) was the former EMTB. Now everyone loves enduro. Enduro is cool. So come on the world moves on, this bashing is boring and annoying in 2018.
