Date Apr 12, 2016

From the tangled sheep paths of the tussock grasslands to purpose-built trails snaking through the sharp mountain peaks, New Zealand ’s varied topography makes for an awe-inspiring mountain bike playground. We traveled throughout the South Island testing the SB5.5c on the fast, ragged conditions in Queenstown and Mount Cook to the mud and gnarled roots of the beech forests of Craigieburn.

When you watch videos like this filmed on trails that you have close to where you live and that are very fragile (beach forest) and quite unknown to the general masses, it leaves a funny feeling that global exposure is not the best thing for places and trails like these. Also that modern riding styles (skidding the rear wheel into corners) isn't great for the trail either. It might look cool, but really it's not. Always be respectful of the trail and the environment you are riding in, especially when it's in someone else's backyard.

Schusler's no slouch behind the lens, that's for sure.
