Sit Back and Enjoy This Sunny, Soothing Mountain Bike Screener

In this video from Guerilla Gravity, Yoann Barelli puts the brand’s newest hardtail, the Pedalhead, to the test.

“From steep slabs to big drops, Yoann shows the Pedalhead lines a hardtail only dreams of,” the brand teased. “Who better to push the limits of our adventure hardtail and uncover its capabilities?”

There aren’t any slow-mo dirt shots or punching sounds of crunching terrain. There’s no pumping bass line as a guy on a mountain bike flies off a jump. There’s no screaming (OK, there are a few happy hollers.)

Instead, there’s an upbeat, classical soundtrack. A violin plays; birds chirp softly. We might have heard a cricket in there somewhere. If you’re looking for a chill way to enjoy some riding footage, this is your jam.

And there’s no commentary — Guerilla Gear lets this bike speak for itself.

Curious as to some of the Pedalhead hardtail specs? Features on this new 29-inch MTB include a RockShox fork, a custom square tubeset, and new geared dropouts. Plus, it’s hand-welded and American-made.
