TEASER / COMMENCAL INSIDERS #7: Pierre-Edouard Ferry in Kathmandu
Far away from the cliché of a wild Nepal, which would be ideal for a backpacking trip, our shaper and rider Pierre-Edouard Ferry went on to share his knowledge and expertise with Kathmandu’s youngster. In a city where paradox are found at every corner and which teems with life in a doom’s day atmosphere, pumptrack riding can be perceived as the symbol of a whole new generation of Nepalese riders for whom riding as a mean of escape. The wheel is spinning in Nepal.

This Is Peaty – Season 2 Trailer!
2012 was a tough year for Peaty, plagued with injuries, mechanicals and some plain bad luck. On the bike, things may have not gone to plan, but as you all saw, off the bike there was no lack in pace and success, travelling up and down the globe catching up with all you Peaty fans.
Season 2 is going to bring you closer to Peaty than ever before, with plenty of carnage both on and off the bike, with Kathy, Bryceland, Minnaar and the rest of the usual suspects, travelling the globe taking in the UCI World Cup series, California, Thailand, Spain, The Isle of Man TT and maybe even a special Ratboy episode?! Along with much, much more.
As you can see in the Trailer, things have already been pretty hectic and the season hasn’t even started yet! To fit it all in, we’re going to be bringing you 8 episodes, dropping every 4 weeks, from now until December to keep you entertained all year long.
Sit back and crack a beer, Peaty’s here.

Wade Simmons Samples the Rocky Mountain Instinct
We had a lot of fun creating this musical bike video with Wade Simmons “sampling” our Instinct 29er. Hope you enjoy!
Designed for the rugged riding that surrounds our North Vancouver office, the Rocky Mountain Instinct is a versatile, long travel 29er. No stranger to pushing the limits of what trail bikes are capable of, Wade Simmons sampled the Instinct and came away with a verdict: it’s a contender on a variety of terrain and a ton of fun.
