Danny MacAskill is a household name in cycling circles, well known for his world class “trials” riding on small nimble bikes as well as aboard Santa Cruz trail bikes in more recent years. He has dreamed up and executed many unique creative projects over the years and in this most recent one, The Slabs, he tests the limit of how steep you can ride on a mountain bike! Feast your eyes and prepare to have your mind blown.
The behind the scenes video below gives you some insight into the challenges that were faced in putting the vision together. You’ll also get a better idea of just how ridiculously steep these slabs are. Danny’s tires and brakes were at the absolute limit. Phenomenal stuff.
Don’t try this at home kids. I think I’ll just go ride some flow trails now.
