Have you ever heard the dirt racing credo, ‘jump for show, corner for dough’? If there’s truth to it, Bas Van Steenbergen just cashed a fat check.
Deity Components cranked out a quick mountain bike video that’ll make your head spin. Go to cornering school with Bas Van Steenbergen as he pushes the new Deity Recon limited-edition pedal to the limit.
Actually, “to the limit” falls well short of accurate; for the vast majority of us, Van Steenbergen rides in a realm well beyond realistic. He contours some turns so tightly, it looks like somebody sped the film up in post-production.
Not so. Van Steenbergen just sticks to the track like he’s magnetized to it. Watch for a little flare in his jumps — but not so much that he doesn’t land at just the right attack angle on the way down.
