Iceland. Proven Here, Yeti promotion.

Location and logistics work for Yeti crew shooting their promotional stuff for the new Yeti SB4.5c. check it out! This strange land is littered with awe-inspiring trails hidden among huge glaciers and ragged peaks blanketed with lush vibrant fauna. The primordial terrain carved into the landscape and the chaotic weather made it an ideal setting for us to shred the Yeti SB4.5c.

Photo of the Year, Bike Magazine.

Sterling Lorence.

A nice capture from photographer Sterling Lorence. Even for writers, there are times when words fail to convey the complete scope of an experience. In these instances photography proves a powerful tool. Bike publishes many such images, but the Best Photo of 2009 captures the sense of visual nirvana photographer Sterling Lorence experienced while riding through the heart of Iceland with Icebike adventures, Matt Hunter, Joe Schwartz and Andrew Shandro.

HORACE AND THE ROUGH STUFF FELLOWSHIP

Guiding Logistics and location work for our friends at Infinite trails.
The story of three man, one dream and 80 years of cycling in Iceland… Long before bikes got fat tires, full suspension and carbon fiber frames, the urge to push the pedals off road found its way into the hearts of riders. One group, the UK-based Rough Stuff Fellowship has united such riders for decades, since a time when crossing rugged terrain was truly for the dedicated adventurer. “Horace and the Rough Stuff Fellowship” tells the story of Horace Dall, an astronomer who—80 years ago—single-handedly crossed Iceland’s moonlike central desert in his suit and tie, solo, with just a napkin-sized map and the stars as his guide.

The birth of Icelands first bikepark

We take a good pride in being a big part of designing and building Icelands first bike park “Skálafell Bikepark” using Icelands longest skilift to transfer bikers up the mountain. the goal was to make one trail for both beginners and more advanced riders.

TRIP OF THE YEAR, Bike Magazine. 

We took Matt Hunter, Joe Schwartz and Andrew Shandro on a tour with photographer Sterling Lorence that ended up with a Trip of the Year award in BIKE magazine.
Iceland is a place shaped by raw, elemental power—where expanding undersea plates allow magma to sear into kilometer-thick glaciers. Icelandic people, too, have been defined by their homeland’s rugged natural forces. Therein lies the loophole that a marauding band of mountain bikers traveled through to discover this island of perfect, untouched dirt. Trails here are still sparse, but the potential of this Technicolor dreamscape is undeniable.
