Riding Hand-Built Trails in Sweden With Santa Cruz

Watch Simon Johansson catch major air against the background of a deep Scandinavian forest.

Sweden — the land of flat-pack furniture, well-made cars, and pop music icons — is home to mountain biker Simon Johansson.

In his latest edit, Johansson partners with Santa Cruz Bicycles to rip through the lush forests around Gothenburg, Sweden. Did we mention that he hand-built the trails featured here?

Johansson’s confident, floaty style perfectly matches the tranquil setting and driving strains of “Resist Much, Obey Little” by The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Kick back and enjoy.
