We love watching mountain bike videos online, but sometimes 5 minute edits are just too short and leave us wanting more! With that in mind, here are 10 great, full-length mountain bike films you can stream on Amazon Prime, YouTube, and RedBull.tv right now. If you have a Roku Streaming Player, you can even watch these on your TV (Redbull has their own Roku app/channel).
Note: last year when we published this list there were several MTB videos available for streaming on Netflix. Unfortunately, none of them are currently available, and we couldn’t find any new ones to take their places. 🙁
The mountain bike films available for free to Amazon Prime members aren’t super current (all on this list were released from 2006-2010), but we still found a few gems worth watching!
Roam is one of the earliest films on this list to tackle the “ride a bunch of trails in stunning locations” model for a movie, and the results are fun to watch. Starring riders Andrew Shandro and Thomas Vanderham.
Seasons follows pro riders Darren Berrecloth, Matt Hunter, Cam McCaul, Steve Peat, Andrew Shandro, Steve Smith, and Thomas Vanderham to show what it’s like to be a full-time mountain biker.
This freeride film stars riders Andrew Shandro and Dave Watson as they explore the boundaries of the sport.
VAST is a European freeride film featuring riders René Wildhaber, Ross Schnell and Carlo Dieckmann.
From Anthill Films, the same crew that produced Roam and Seasons, Follow Me features riders Darren Berreclough, Ben Boyko, Brendan Fairclough, Geoff Gulevich, Matt Hunter, Cam McCaul, Brandon Semenuk, Steve Smith, Kurt Sorge, Thomas Vanderham.
This is a New Zealand mountain bike movie and in my opinion, it has the best title of any MTB film ever made. In addition to the lines, the production quality of this film is sketchy as well, but it’s still fun to watch.
Ok, so you can probably find bootleg copies of pretty much any MTB film you want on YouTube, but we’re only linking legitimately-posted feature-length (in the case of MTB films, 30+ minute) movies. Bonus: you don’t even have to leave this article to watch these videos in their entirety!
All or Nothing
This mountain bike film has had more than 2.2 million views since it was posted in 2013, and with good reason. With a cast of more than a dozen pro riders, this is a fast-paced video that’s fun to watch.
Mountain Biking Around the World

In case you hadn’t noticed, Redbull has become a major force in mountain bike filmmaking, and the production company doesn’t limit itself to event coverage and short viral clips. At Redbull.tv you’ll find everything from clips to feature-length films like the two listed below.
From Redbull.tv: “Focusing on the creative genius of Dan and how his drive and determination to build has helped push and inspire his brother and sister to become Downhill World Champions, “Escape. Create.” gives a unique insight into the mind of one of the most creative course designers and builders in downhill mountain biking.”
