Video: “Moves”

The video was shot during December, which turned out to be the rainiest month of the year.
We hope this film shows the fun of riding year round, regardless of the weather. The main focus was on trails that demand technique, balance, strength and endurance. It rained almost nonstop during the filming, making some of the trails very slick and tough to ride.

 

The terrain around Gothenburg consists of hundreds of kilometers of natural trails through rolling and rocky forests which makes a durable freeride bike advantageous in many situations. We ride the 2014 Canyon Torque EX Trailflow; a bike we think is made for this type of terrain. The natural topography of Gothenburg can make the trails somewhat muddy and depending on the time of year, it can be a downright mud fest. To look as representative as possible, we chose Mudhugger’s mudguards.

 

Views from the various MTB areas around Gothenburg make up the intro. Shot with a Canon 5D Mark II and three GoPro Hero3 Blacks.

While we don’t advocate riding in muddy conditions, it’s rather rare to see a mountain bike video dedicated to mostly XC-style technical singletrack. Add in the talent of the riders and the quality of the video production, and this makes for a fun four minutes of entertainment.
