This one is for those thrill-seeking adrenaline junkies who are always seeking ever bigger jumps to push the boundaries of what man and machine are capable of. The retro style, bold contrast, and striking colours evoke a sense of thrill and excitement that reflects the sport of downhill racing.
Technology and materials have evolved dramatically over the years, resulting in highly specialized bikes that serve one purpose, and that purpose is going down fast and absorbing huge drops!
The tracks and trails are meant to be as challenging as possible; they involve both man-made and natural features of the landscape, such as rock ‘gardens,’ roots, off-camber turns, and switchbacks. The trails are steep and fast, meant only for the most skilled riders. They’re intended to get that adrenaline flowing and body-bike coordination at a peak.
Some jumps can be up to 40 feet. The rider must wear a full-face helmet and elbow, knee, and shin armored pads as protection under their kits. As marginal gains become increasingly important, there is a trend to using tighter fitting kits to gain an aerodynamic advantage.
This cheeky slogan is a nod to the no-fear attitude and lifestyle of these daredevil risk-takers. The distinctive retro style and bold composition would make a great addition to any man cave or interior, particularly for cycling enthusiasts or fans of vintage sports posters.
