That New Sam Lowe Fire

By now, everyone knows what to expect from a Sam Lowe edit: straight fire. It’s been a while since some Sam footy’s dropped and this one will be sure to hold people over for a bit once again. Filmed all over the Vancouver area, Sam throws down some heavy bangers that you’ll want to rewind a couple times. Press play and enjoy!

Re-Up: MacNeil Vancouver Island Getaway

As most of the northern hemisphere is starting to, or already have, feeling the chill of the oncoming winter we thought we should re-post our Vancouver Island Getaway video. Back in June a few of the guys on the team packed up in a car with Zach Rampen and headed out to Vancouver island for some exploring, riding, camping, and general summer fun. Give the video another watch with Greg Flag, Sam Lowe, and Taylor Elvy and a gallery of photos on the micro-site we made here shot by Brad Hill.

Make sure you read the answers to his questions and you’ll get the scoop on a product are working on with him, and an embarrassing Darcy story too. You can find the bike check here.

Vancouver Island Getaway: Video + Photo Gallery

In the middle of June, Sam Lowe, Taylor Elvy and Greg Flag all hopped on a ferry to Vancouver Island, BC and spent a week exploring what the area had to offer. What they found were welcoming and generous locals, great parks, camp sites, and a seemingly endless supply of spots. We had an amazing time on the Island, and ended up filming more than we could have hoped for. We put together this video of the trip, filmed and edited by Zach Rampen, and a gallery of photos shot by Brad Hill, that you can check out by clicking the photo below. Thanks to One Six Bike Shop and all the locals on the Island that helped make our trip such a great time. We’ll be back soon enough.
