Been riding these @leatt_mtb 4.0 Lite gloves for the past 6 weeks and they are amazing!!
With the wet slippery season upon us sometimes we pinball down the trail and ping off the trees. The pinky knuckles are very happy with the Airflex impact material!!
Get the confidence you need!
✅ CE tested and certified PPE and knuckle impact protection.
✅ Leatt 4.0 Lite gloves offer premium Airflex Impact protection area
✅ NanoGrip ultra-thin palm for superior bike feel
✅ Ultimate dry and wet grip
✅ Touch screen friendly
We had all the flavors of weather last Sunday when we teamed up with @one_cranked_girl and @puckheadz to put some time in on the @crankedgirls trail in the lower Cumberland trail network.
Always very satisfying seeing how much can get done when you have a solid crew all working towards the same goal! Massive thanks to @unitedridersofcumberland for the support and the tools!
As trails disappear due to industry, new ones get built and old ones get reactivated and this is All Good with us!
Thanks to everyone who came out to play in the dirt! ⛏🪣☔️☀️🌲🌈#UROC #mtbcommunity #buildtrail #gravitymtbstaff #letsdoitagain...
Two weeks ago was the first @forbiddenbikecompany #TheGathering. Two venues… Cumberland and Gloucestershire, England.
We were blessed with glorious weather here in Cumberland and with 40+ riders there were a billion laughs, antics, good times and loads of snacks. A solid two ride day and we got down and dirty and pumped that @jarrettlindalmedia 📸 was able to capture some of the magic.
Huge thanks to the Forbidden family for hosting a Rad day and creating mind blowing amazing bikes!

Gravity MTB is hosting another 2-day Progression Session clinic for Adults in November at Mt Tzouhalem with Coach Vance 🤙🏻
Vance is our Director of Cowichan programs and will be heading up heaps of programs for both gravity kids and adults in the Spring.
We are so excited to be offering clinics down island!
Vance has a long history of coaching and riding bikes. Like most kids he started cruising the neighbourhood looking for jumps and trails. This lead to BMX racing then to CX racing. Thankfully with innovation, going down on a bike became the best part so Vance kept riding through the freeride era and still loves an old school rock roll or skinny as much as a flow trail or bike park.
Vance lives in the Cowichan Valley and continues to coach, ride, build trails and enjoy the amazing mtb riding the area has to offer with his friends and family.
You’ll be seeing a lot of more of Vance soon so be sure to say hi on the trails 👍🏻😊
The November clinic is open for registration.
To register or for more info email email@example.com
Dates: Nov 7th & 14th
This clinic is for a beginner intermediate to intermediate level rider. Learn skills to get onto more challenging trails and features at Mt Tzouhalem!
Our friend Brittany is in hospital for about another 7-10 days. She’s been through a lot to say the least and has a long road to recovery. There is a Go Fund Me page that has been set up and if you would like to help support, check the link in our bio.
Our good friend, coach and team rider @brittfalconer hit the deck hard today at the Stevie Smith Bike Park in Nanaimo.
She will be spending a couple nights in the hospital in Victoria. We are wishing her a super strong and speedy recovery.
Help us spread the good vibes on this holiday weekend and send some BIG ❤️ to Brittany.

That’s a wrap on our ladies programs this season! 🍂🤘🏼
Thank you to everyone who came out to ride with us 🥰
So many rad ladies from all over BC came out to ride, and quite a few repeat riders!
That gets us so stoked!
The progress of female ridership within the sport, and the inclusivity is inspiring!
Everything from girls on their first pedal bikes right up to 70 year old women sending the orange peels drops!
We saw it all! 🤘🏼
What a rad 2021 season!!
And a big final thank you to our ladies coaches and sponsors this season!
We couldn’t have done it without you❤️❤️❤️
Keep your eyes on the webpage
Ladies programs coming to the South Island!
All time, fall time out there 🍂
Conditions couldn’t be better!
However, the Ranger fully seam-sealed mountain bike jacket definitely makes the ride more enjoyable (and significantly warmer! )🔥👌🏼😊
Check out their Fire pant and be kitted for the off-season, even though you don’t really take one 😉
That’s a wrap on our women’s progression sessions, we had a blast and got to end the night with beers and prizes around the fire 🔥 ❤️🤘🏼
The 2021 season is coming to an end and our LAST women’s Cumberland weekend of the season is this weekend.
It’s sold out!!
It has been a fantastic year for our women’s programs!
Thank you, thank you to everyone who came out to join us for some fun on bikes! ❤️🚲
Our ladies clinic are one of our favourite programs to offer. We’re so stoked to be offering ladies JUMP and DROP clinics at the @jordielunnbikepark and
Ladies clinics at Mt.Tzouhalem in 2022!!
We’re also super stoked to be bringing some mechanics sessions to our women’s clinics! 🔧
During your weekend sessions with us in 2022 we’re going to teach you some helpful skills like how to change a flat, dial in your cockpit, and some trail side tips and tricks! 💪🏼❤️
Huge thank you to @vibrewing for sponsoring our women’s clinics with such yummy brews this season! 🍻❤️
It’s the best way to wrap up a fun ride with new friends!
Tried and tested! 😉
In Canada sept 18-26 is the time to thank coaches!
They not only impact individual athletes, but the whole community!
This year Gravity MTB has 45 staff!!
That’s including Chad and CJ 🤘🏼
45 amazing, passionate riders who share their love and stoke for the sport with our participants!
We constantly get the most amazing feedback about our coaches!
And we really think they are the best!
Loving the support for our friends out at Gravity MTB!
If you're interested in learning something new with mountain biking, they have 3 ladies courses coming up soon! Head on over their page to find out more.
Psst.. I hear they like to enjoy a cold VIB Brew and maybe even some Island Life's after a good session!

Yesterday’s DJ sesh and Jump Jam was amazing!
Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support our local jump park!
We raised $845.00 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
And the best news, the village of Cumberland has offered to MATCH the donations we raised!!
That’s almost $1,700 🤘🏼
We’re feeling very thankful for our community
and the passion for bikes!
We have to make a shout out to the coaches who came out yesterday as well!
You guys were amazing!
Breaking down skills and progressions. And just making the jump park a fun approachable place to be. For anyone and everyone. We had dirt jumpers out yesterday as well as trail bikes and even an E-bike! ⚡️
Thanks to Cole Freeman for these amazing pics! 🔥
Thanks to @hornbyorganic for the yummiest bars to feed everyone! 😋
Gravity MTB is headed to Tzouhalem for a couple weekends next month, and we’re super excited to open registration for two new programs! 🔥🔥🔥
Cowichan Gravity Kids! AND
Cowichan Adult Co-Ed
Progression Sessions! 😊🤘🏼
2- 2hr camps on October 3rd and 10th.
The kids camps are aimed at intermediate riders, from 9am-11am.
The adult sessions are geared towards intermediates as well and will follow up from 1pm-3pm.
We’re stoked to offer a few sessions in another rad riding network. ❤️
We’ve had participants travel from all over the island to come ride Cumberland with us.
With some interest it seemed about time that we come to you! 😊👍🏼
For more information and to register for our Cowichan Sessions email us at
We’re pretty excited to share some fun news about Gravity athletes Devin and Brittany
In the last couple weeks we’ve set them up with a young local shredder.
Devin will be riding with Cumby local Ethan Jamieson, and Brittany with Nanaimo BMX star Piper Graaten.
Mentorship is a subject that’s been coming up again and again in cycling.
We think it’s because there’s something to be said for riding your bike with someone you can relate to.
But also that sometimes riding your bike isn’t about getting coaching, it’s just about having someone to listen to you. ❤️
And if that person can motivate you to push a little harder, ride a little further, and jump a little higher.
Then that’s rad! 🤘🏼❤️
Do you know a young grom in need of a big trail buddy?

What a truly epic experience this Euro-trip has been! 🤘🏼🍁
Full of highs and lows, but that’s racing!
We’re so proud of how the team has performed at both World Champs 🌈
and the World Cup here in Lenzerheide.
We’ve learned a lot, had a ton of fun and we’ll be coming home stoked.
Because this is just the beginning! 🤘🏼🇨🇦
Thank you to our sponsors and supporters back home! ❤️
It goes without saying that we wouldn’t be here without you!
