Shredding Porcupine Rim

Video Nate Hills
Date May 1, 2016

Porcupine Rim is one of Moab’s classics. For the right riders it’s got great flow but a mistake can be costly as well. Nate Hills, chasing Kyle Mears and Botsy Phillips, keep the speed up through the bony bits.


Have you ridden it?

The move at 3:47 is pretty cool. That is a challenging spot.

The move at 3:47 is amazing. I have tried to clean that spot (unsuccessfully) innumerable times.

Been there and done that, although with less speed/style. It's not obvious, but the camera angle is off for some of the video, making it look a bit steeper on the sideslope than it actually is. Still, not a place I would want to fall. Same thing for Ahab…

Like the preamble say, the penalty for a mis-step is huge in places on that trail.
