Colony – Day At the Trails with Nathan Sykes and Victor Salazar

Follow Colony’s Nathan Sykes and Victor Salazar as they take a little day trip to ride the Stay Strong Compound (R.I.P.) and the Hoodrich Trails. These dudes have pretty contrasting styles, but Cooper Brownlee was able to come up with a pretty solid edit and some rad photos from the day. Make sure you check out those photos HERE after you get done watching the vid!

Intel – BMX Meets Curie

Intel has been using BMX pretty heavy as a vessel to test/promote their new Curie Module. What the hell is that you ask! It’s a six-axis sensor that combines accelerometers and gyroscopes to give you data such as speed, height, air time, and even the rotation of a tricks. From what I can gather, you would strap this thing to your bike and then access the data after your session (or possibly during with a phone). My question is if that’s really necessary? It might be kind of cool to know how fast or how high you were going, but that data seems like more of a novelty than anything you could do something useful with. I mean you’re going to know in real time if your speed is off on a jump, or if you under or over-rotate a trick. If anything it seems like more of a tool you would use to precisely brag on social media. “Hey dude, I hit Chicken and was going 66mph and got 40 seconds of air time!” Anyway, check out the video below featuring Matt Cordova and Victor Salazar testing out the Curie Module at FOD and see what you think. That video is just a little teaser that was floating around FB. The full length video isn’t embeddable so you’ll have to click HERE to watch it.

Daniel Wedemeijer & Victor Salazar @ Wetlands

This is a little heavier on the tricks than I usually like to see, but I figured I’d go ahead and throw it up since it was shot pretty well. Also worth mentioning that this is an edit for a sunglasses company called Gloryfy. It’s a real shame that these guys aren’t committed enough to their sponsor to actually wear the glasses while they’re riding. Jay Miron would have popped the lenses out of those bad boys and 360 whipped all over those trails.

Promise Land // Victor Salazar

Dylan Pfohl very well may be one of the busiest dudes putting in work behind the lens these days. It seems like almost every week there’s a new video popping up that he is responsible for. Continuing our slowmo theme for today is this new Victor Salazar edit. The riding leans more towards the Dew Tour world than the trails world, but once again Dylan’s production work kept me watching all the way through.
