For the last couple of years renowned freerider Kyle Jameson has made Bend, Oregon his home. When good friend and legendary filmmaker Clay Porter and the Metis Creative crew relocated north, it was the perfect opportunity to collaborate on this project. Kyle's aggressive but smooth style is showcased in this piece, alongside his effortless ability to tear-up the steep loose tracks of Bend, Oregon.
SDG’s new kits for youth allow young riders to Shred In Good Company.
Kids are starting to ride at a younger age, and progressing faster than ever. With sweet new color coordinated parts (just like mom and dad have on their bikes) riding becomes way more fun, and safer too. The traction grabbers and replaceable steel pins in the small nylon pedals keep their feet from slipping, while thinner bar ends and smaller OD grips allow for increased control and overall confidence. To top it off, a proper size saddle simply makes the ride more comfortable and enjoyable.
If you live for the steeps, both up and down, the short chainstays may be something worth considering as they’re a double-edged sword. If you’re a tight techy rider who loves manuals and slamming the back end into the corners, or navigating tight terrain, then the Shuttle will be right in your wheelhouse. If you’re a rider looking to tackle terrain you couldn’t dream of climbing on a normal bike while seated or reaching land speed records down Kamikaze-inspired fire roads, the short stays will be a hindrance.
