Trevor Porter


Trevor is a really nice guy. This is a video about him. 

Allow me to introduce… Myself.
Kona is a company packed with amazing and talented people. People with families, people with cool interests and as you probably guessed, a whole bunch of people that ride. We want you to meet these people face to face, to get to know them and have a look behind the scenes to see what makes everyone here tick.
To kick things off in our new My Kona series of videos we’d like to introduce you to Trevor Porter. Trevor works out of our Canadian office. Like most of us at Kona, he handles a few different responsibilities. Trevor is the sales rep for British Columbia, works in the Kona Product Group and takes care of Canadian SuperGrass riders. But he can tell you all that (and more) in person.

Invergarry

grass reclaiming an underridden section

mid process

a little further

done for now... now we need rain
Sometimes the best time to build new stuff is when its dry and dusty. Its really easy to make some moves on stuff that can't/wont be ridden until the rainy season. This is one such spot... a part of the cornercopia pumptrack was growing grass(a sure sign a line isn't being ridden) so we switched it up... Now to wait for some rain so we can pack and shape it into a working line. That's the trade... easy earth move but a line that wont be finished for a while...

Brandon Semenuk



This is probably the coolest edit I've seen. It's filmed in one shot. Brandon Semenuk is one of the best riders in the world on one of the coolest trails in the world filmed by the best people.

Published on Jul 21, 2015
Download the complete film on iTunes now: http://radi.al/unReal. unReal is available for digital download on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and more and is currently on a worldwide film tour.

To celebrate the release of unReal on iTunes (http://radi.al/unReal), Teton Gravity Research (TGR) and Anthill release one of the most acclaimed segments from the film. Widely recognized as the best slopestyle mountain biker in the world, Brandon Semenuk has become the first mountain biker to film a full segment in a single continuous shot. This uninterrupted shot was filmed by the most advanced gyro-stabilized camera system, the GSS C520, mounted to a truck on a custom road built next to a custom trail that took three weeks to build. This true cinematic achievement required perfect coordination between Semenuk, Anthill Films, and TGR with regard to athleticism, planning, timing and logistics.

Injured at the time, Semenuk only hit the full line once.

The historic moment was produced for unReal, the feature mountain bike film inspired by the unprecedented creative union of production companies TGR and Anthill Films, and the limitless imaginations of a group of the best mountain bikers in the world.

GET LOST IN THE MOMENT

"There comes a time in all our lives when we must let go of all the chaos and clutter of the modern world and tune our minds to a simpler idea…to see into that empty space just a few feet in front of us and see nothing else… to see the path ahead as a story yet to be written. Entire days of our lives can pass by without meaning, yet within these moments of absolute clarity there’s an entire lifetime worth remembering. It’s simply a matter of letting the rest of the world melt away…"

ABOUT UNREAL

Vital RAW - Lee Jackson Whacks Whistler + Norco Aurum Bike Check - More Mountain Bike Videos

This guy rips pretty hard in the bike park. Lots of cool lines in this. No music

Lee Jackson gaps and slaps the trails of Whistler's lower mountain.
Here's what AJ Barlas noted about making the video with Lee.
"We attempted to get a good mix of burly gap lines and fast sections, with the one move that Lee was most worried, and psyched about being the gap on the slab of Schleyer (ender); a move that apparently only Nick Geddes has successfully hit. It's serious, and we were stoked to get it smooth. Lee was jittery the rest of the night. He did it the original day filming, but cased and wasn't happy with the clip, so he stewed over it for 3 days between the original shoot and the redo.
"A couple of interesting stats: Lee destroyed one wheel, blew a tire off the rim, flatted front and rear on separate occasions, blew pieces of his chain guide apart, taking bed rock with it all in 2 days time shooting."

Dean Tennant


Dean Tennant is a fast local who puts some style down on a bike. Watch this edit if you don't believe moi.
Everything has to start somewhere and for me, my love of riding started a long time ago. Back in 2000, I was riding a hardtail on sketchy ladder bridges made out of pallets, and looked up to legends like Wade Simmons, Tyler Klassen, Dan Cowan, and many others. Riding styles, trails, and bikes have sure changed a lot since then. 15 years have passed since those early days, but every time I get back on my bike I still get that stoke like I'm riding my bike for the first time again. - Dean Tennant

Up and Down Squamish

Up and Down Squamish features a thrilling trail ride loop on Diamond Head in Squamish, BC. Shot in sequence, this 30km loop takes around 2-3 hours, hits 6 trails, climbs a total of 1500 metres (nearly 5000’), and rewards you with 10 km of descent. Enjoy a mix of hand built trails and machine built trails that have been made possible by SORCA, Dream Wizards, and countless volunteer hours.
The first trail on the loop is called Power Smart. Located at a high elevation and off the beaten path, this trail has endured more damage caused by water than by cycling, dirt biking, hiking, or even horse riding. This trail is wild, with lots of steep, technical switchbacks and loose rocks the size of your head. During most of the year water runs down the trail, you’ll be sure to get your feet wet. It’s not a popular trail that gets ridden very much and it is in dire need of repair. This trail is a lot of fun to ride though, be sure to hang on tight. Power Smart feeds into IMBA Smart. There are nice long corners and well planned switchbacks on this trail. Enjoy a descent followed by a bit of climbing as you pass from mature forest to areas of regrowth. Carve around narrow round corners, cross tidy bridges, and have a fast exit! This trail is another hand built gem in the Sea to Sky Corridor. Next is a trail called Fred. This is a good XC trail that has a few punchy climbs, some short, steep descents, and lots of technical turns. The more you ride it the more you’ll discover the flow built into this trail. It gets better every time you ride it. Ongoing maintenance continues to improve the drainage and speed.



Tinder is next; it is the obvious way to connect Fred and Your Mom. A brand new machine built trail by Dream Wizards, it features bermed corners, braided climb lines, table top jumps, split cedar river crossings, and manageable grade climbs. Cruise through fresh clear cut and enter the mature forest! Your Mom is a real charm. Here you will find lovely curves and corners. Beware of adjacent borrow pits as one false move means you’ll be buried alive. The gentle terrain carries good speed, but watch out because there are corners that will catch you if you’re going too fast. You will finish on Phil and Cams which is also the bottom of Pseudo-Tsuga. This piece of trail rewards you for all the hard work you’ve put in. Enjoy easily acquired speed, bermed corners, rollers, and optional gap lines as you cruise down to the bottom parking lot. People will be watching, so be sure to pick off the last gap to berm.

Thanks to Dunbar Cycles and Transition Bikes for making this video project possible. Thanks to SORCA for overseeing and maintaining the vast Squamish trail network. Thanks to Dream Wizards for the addition of Tinder Trail this summer. If you feel obligated please purchase a trail pass and/or donate to SORCA for increased maintenance and further trail development at SORCA on Trailforks. - Sid Slotegraaf

The corner at 1:35 was sweet.

ELLIOT HEAP – NOT ANOTHER WINTER VIDEO?

With swathes of winter mountain bike ‘edits’ floating around the interweb every year, here at Dirt we decided to do things properly and bring you a New Years Day treat. We thought, what would people like to see? We’re guessing something along the lines of a 130mm trail bike, many hucks, gaps and loose corners. You tell us if we were right and all of the above is brought to you by 16 year old Elliot Heap, mainly sideways or in the air!
This is an example of the potential the UK has for winter trail bike riding.. exactly what you could be doing right now – so get that bike back out!
