Death By Enduro – A Survivalist Epic

by 0

In the third and final part of our Pirelli Scorpion vlog series, Benji attempts the infamous Naughty Northumbrian Enduro. It was a big. It was steep. It was very, very steep.

It was time for me to put my enduro chops to the test. As well as the Pirelli Scorpion Race M EN tyres attached to my Cotic RocketMAX. I hadn’t raced an enduro event for years so it was very much a case of in at the deep end. Or, more accurately, in at the steep end.

The Naughty Northumbrian was easily the steepest terrain I’d ever encountered at any bike event I’d ever been to. And I’m not talking about steep climbs (although there were more than a few of those too). I’m talking about insanely steep timed descents. It was certianly an experience. Whether it was a nice or nasty experience, you’ll have to find out by watching the video!

Pirelli Scorpions

Earlier this year Pirelli launched a comprehensive range of MTB tyres to cater from everything from Enduro/DH to lightweight XC race duties. All the tyres in the range have one main thing in common – they are all called Scorpion. Which Scorpion is right for you depends on what you want to do with it and in our ‘Pirelli Scorpion mountain bike tyres explained‘ feature you can read up on the all the details of the entire Pirelli Scorpion range.

More stuff about the Pirelli Scorpion tyre range:

Orange Switch 6er. Stif Squatcher. Schwalbe Magic Mary Purple Addix front. Maxxis DHR II 3C MaxxTerra rear. Coil fan. Ebikes are not evil. I have been a writer for nigh on 20 years, a photographer for 25 years and a mountain biker for 30 years. I have written countless magazine and website features and route guides for the UK mountain bike press, most notably for the esteemed and highly regarded Singletrackworld. Although I am a Lancastrian, I freely admit that West Yorkshire is my favourite place to ride. Rarely a week goes by without me riding and exploring the South Pennines.
