2021 Norco Shore – 3 neue Freerider aus BC

Norco Shore

Die Trails rund um Vancouver im wunderschönen British Columbia waren schon immer für ihre großen und verblockten Lines bekannt. Dieses Trail System prägt seit knapp 20 Jahren die Freeride-Szene und dient nun als Inspiration für das neue Norco Shore. Drei Neuen Modelle für ausgiebige Sessions auf den Local Trails oder zum Ballern im Park werden somit das Produktjahr 2021 erweitern.

Norco produzierte von Anfang an Fahrräder für die damals neu entstehende Freeride-Szene im kanadischen British Columbia. Als Drops-to-flat auf den Trails des North-Shores noch zum Programm gehörten, waren sie unter den ersten die ihre Räder stabil genug bauten und mit Scheibenbremsen und “pedalierbarer” Federung ausstatteten. Nun fügt Norco seinem Sortiment Drei neue Freeride Modelle hinzu.

Die neue Shore Serie nutzt Norco’s Ride Aligned Design System und will mit neustem Feder-Design das ultimative Freeride Bike in drei verschiedenen Ausführungen auf den Markt bringen. Alle drei Modelle kommen in einem hydrogeformten Aluminium Rahmen, der für 27.5 Laufräder konzipiert wurde. Dank des hauseigenen Ride Aligned System lassen sich Norco Mountainbikes per App individuell an jeden Fahrer anpassen. Die App gibt einen zu Fahrer und Einsatzgebiet passenden Wert vor, mit dem man Fahrwerk und Reifendruck abstimmt. Das Kanadische Unternehmen verpasst dem Shore mit der High Pivot Horst Link Federung eine nach hinten und oben verlaufende Raderhebungskurve, das dürfte für Sensibilität und sahniges Ansprechen sorgen. Mit der nach oben umgelenkten Kettenführung soll Pedal Rückschlag effizient vermieden werden.

Mit dem Shore 1 und 2 soll es nicht nur Bergab Spaß gehen, sondern auch zum Trail bergauf gefahren werden. Das Shore Park ist mit 7-Fach Schaltung und 190mm Federweg für den reinen Downhill Spaß gedacht und eher in Bikeparks und auf dem Local Dh-Spot zuhause.

Die verschiedenen Modelle:

Das Shore 1 kommt mit einer Fox Factory 38 Float Gabel und einem Fox Factory DHX2 Coil Dämpfer auf den Markt. Die Sram GX Eagle Schaltung soll für genügend Vortrieb und die Code RSC 4-Kolben Bremsanlage mit 200mm Bremsscheiben soll für ordentliche Bremskraft sorgen.

Beim Shore 2 wurde die neue RockShox ZEB R Gabel und der Super Deluxe DH Dämpfer verbaut. Gebremst wird mit der Shimano MT520 4-Kolben Anlage und Die Schaltung ist eine 12-Speed Deore.

Für alle Park Rats bringt das Norco Shore Park mit einer RockShox BoXXer Select RC und einem Super Deluxe Coil Ultimate DH Dämpfer genügend Federweg für ausgiebige Sessions mit. Außerdem wird hier noch eine Sram GX 7 speed 11-25T Schaltung und eine Code R 4-Kolben Bremsanlage mit 200m Bremsscheiben verbaut. Mer Informationen zu den drei Varianten findet ihr weiter unten im Bericht.

Die Top 10 Edits 2020 – MTB auf einem anderen Level

Obwohl in 2020 die Covid Pandemie für viele abgesagte Events und Rennen sorgte, führte die ungeplante “Offseason” zu einem Strom aus bildgewaltigen und atemberaubenden MTB-Edits bei denen man manchmal einfach nicht fassen konnte was da grade passiert. Wir haben euch in dem folgenden Artikel 10 der markantesten Videos aus 2020 zusammengestellt.

Im letzten Jahr wurde das Internet von extrem vielen Edits überschwemmt. Vom konstant ausgezeichneten Content Strom von Commencal, über die typisch extremen Red Bull Videos bis hin zu jungen Filmern und Athleten von denen wir in Zukunft bestimmt noch einiges erwarten können.

Wir haben hier 10 der Videos aufgelistet bei denen wir teilweise zurückspulen mussten, weil so viele Wolrds Firsts aufeinander folgten, oder die Fahrer extreme Risiken eingingen und wir unseren Augen kaum Trauen konnten. Neben Tricks, Airtime und Style ist natürlich auch das optische wichtig und da gab es dieses Jahr auch einiges an bildgewaltigen Aufnahmen.

Brandon Semenuks – RAW 100 Version 6

Tom Van Steenbergen – Wild West

adidas 5.10 Presents ‘Wild West’ Starring Tom Van Steenbergen

Tom Van Steenbergen unleashes an onslaught of creativity both on and off the bike in his most important project to date ‘Wild West’. From unique features to first time tricks, Tom’s creative freedom was let loose like never before. The end result is 2 and a half minutes of Tom’s most ambitious freeride and slopestyle riding to date.

Filmed in Oliver, BC, “Wild West’ is visual representation of Tom’s personality on and off the bike, brought to life by director Calvin Huth. Over a 6 week period of building, testing and experimenting with multiple world firsts tricks, ‘Wild West’ leaves nothing on the table.

Having first met in Whistler shooting for dirt diaries, Calvin and Tom had an instant rapport and have sort to work together ever since. ‘Wild West’ is a coming together of their creativity like never before.

“I put everything I had into this project, adidas 5.10 gave me the freedom to make the project I wanted to make and the time I needed to push my riding in the way I knew I could. I’ve put it all out there in ‘Wild West’ and hope that it gets people excited to ride” – Tom Van Steenbergen

Nico Vink – From The Ash

A decade ago, director Ryan Gibb released Life Cycles, a masterpiece of a mountain biking film. A sequel never materialized, and he spent the next few years working on commercial projects. Then, in late 2018 Gibb made a return to the MTB world, traveling to New Mexico’s Philmont Scout Ranch for an ambitious shoot featuring Nico Vink. Watch Vink shred through embers and ash in the short film From the Ash, Directed by Ryan Gibb and produced by Teton Gravity Research.

Disclaimer: This short film was made on private property in a burn scar — no healthy forests were lit on fire. In May of 2018 the Ute Park wildfire burnt 36,740 acres; a large swath of it was on the Philmont Scout Ranch. Thank you to the Boy Scouts of America for allowing us to film on location at Philmont. Everything was shot in a controlled setting on private land during the winter in a recently scorched wildfire area. The crew was under the supervision of forestry professionals to ensure everything was executed safely. There wasn’t a single live tree touched throughout our entire production.

Thank you to the men and women who put their lives at risk fighting real wildfires around the world. Please be responsible this wildfire season.

VIDEO: George Brannigan gets rowdy in the Les Gets Backcountry

George Brannigan macht auf seinem Propain das Les Gets Hinterland unsicher. Der World Cup Racer ist auf seinem Enduro auf den losen und sommerlichen Trails in den französischen Alpen unterwegs und beweist, dass er nicht nur auf dem Downhill eine gute Figur macht.

George ‘Grylls’ Brannigan has been visiting Morzine to use as a base for World Cup racing for nearly a decade now. An animal on any bike, it’s awesome to see him make his back to the pointy end of the field after a couple of years on the wrong side of injuries.

VIDEO: CUBE Factory Racing welcomes Danny Hart

Danny Hart fährt 2021 für den deutschen Fahrradhersteller Cube. In dem neuen Video erzählt er wie er zum Fahrradfahren kam, was er vom neuen Downhill Two15 hält und ballert damit auf seinen britischen Hometrails. Wir sind gespannt was der frische Familienvater in der kommenden Saison mit seinem neuen Team im World Cup erreichen wird. 

Two-time World Champion Danny Hart signs with the new CUBE Factory Racing! 29-year-old Danny Hart exploded onto the elite downhill scene with his now-legendary gold run at the 2011 World Championships. Hailing from Redcar on England’s north-east coast, the two-time UCI Downhill World Champion has multiple World Cup wins under his belt. Fondly known as the Redcar Rocket, Hart has made a name for himself as unstoppable on treacherously steep tracks in muddy conditions. In 2019 Danny finished on the podium at every round of the World Cup. Starting 2021, Danny, who with his wife Sophia has just welcomed a baby daughter, will ride for the CUBE Downhill Factory Team under a long-term contract.

Video: Sam Hill zeigt was das neue Nukeproof Mega 290c kann

Nachdem Sam Hill letzte Woche die Szene ein bisschen auf Spannung gehalten hatte, verkündete er, dass er führ mindestens drei weitere Jahre bei Nukeproof bleibt. Zusammen haben sie die vierte Version des Mega entwickelt und Sam scheut nicht davor zurück das Bike in dem neuen Edit an die Grenzen zu fahren.  

The internet may have just repaired itself from Sam Hill’s breaking it last week. We’re stoked Sam’s staying with Nukeproof for another 3 years (minimum). Probably time to show him riding the new Mega:

With Sam was absent from the 2020 Enduro World Series rounds, he’s not been in full feet up mode, although it has been nice for him to “relax” and enjoy a full year at home with his young family for the first time in his illustrious career. The V4 Mega is a ground up design and Sam’s been out to ensure the bike is dialled for the 2021 season. He’s even been putting in times against the clock (and winning) at his local Western Australia Gravity Series. With Sam taking a hattrick of Enduro World Series titles on the Mega V3, the V4 Mega had some big shoes to fill. But the redesigned V4 Mega has allowed our engineers to implement some fresh thinking and changes on both 27.5” and 29” platforms. Geometry changes, all new linkage and suspension curve and a full carbon frame (with a fully optimised carbon layup).

Sam’s weapon of choice is again will again be the Mega 290c, seen here built to Team Chain Reaction Cycles-Nukeproof spec featuring components from a full selection of Nukeproof & Sam Hill Signature components along with Sram’s AXS set up, Rockshox ZEB fork, MRP AMG guide and DH22 rubber from Michelin.

“My initial impression of the new (V4) Mega is how quick and positive it feels to change lines and direction on the trails. The changes also make it feel a lot more playful to ride, but really stable when you’re going fast.”- Sam Hill

The new 2021 Mega: Race Proven.

Filmed in Western Australia at the awesome Linga Longa. Taking on some of his favourite enduro and downhill trails. For those that may not have been to this area, the park is pretty remote, situated about 3 hours from Perth, towards the southernmost tip of Western Australia. Originally the land was bought in 2012 as a family retreat by owner Boxer (as he put it “to run wild and free”). As a relative local Sam has been instrumental in helping design and build in the park along with hundreds of volunteers. What they have created is a little piece of MTB paradise, well worth a visit https://www.lingalongabikepark.com
