Video: Richie Schley On Crankbrothers’ eMTB Wheels

Freeride legend shreds SkyPark Bike Park on the Synthesis Ebike hoops.

We told you a bit about Crankbrothers’ new Synthesis Ebike carbon wheelsets for electric mountain bikes back in September. (We’re still going to test them out for themselves once we get a suitable long-term review eMTB into Cycle Volta HQ to mount them on.) Crankbrothers recently headed up to SkyPark Bike Park in Southern California’s San Bernardino Mountains to shoot this video project with freeride legend Richie Schley, getting some hang time and railing berms on the park’s flow and jump trails aboard the Synthesis Ebike wheels.

SkyPark happens to be one of the Cycle Volta test crew’s favorite places to ride eMTBs—the non-lift-served park is open to Class 1 bikes, with rentals of both eMTBs and analog mountain bikes available in the Adventure Center—so we’re excited to share Crankbrothers’ video “Amp Up Your E-MTB.” Hopefully it gets you motivated to get out on the trails for a shred-tastic day.
