Rare Sighting: Trail Builder Emerges From Hibernation for Spring

Pearl Izumi just launched its ‘More Trail’ mountain bike collection and releases a short, sweet, Attenborough-inspired homage to the humble trail builder to mark the occasion.

The season of longer days and ever-sendier temps has arrived. And to borrow from the soft, scholarly narrator heard here: “Having survived weeks of unrideable trails, the builder emerges.”

Watch as the MTB trail builder carefully prepares his flowy singletrack, from tamping down jumps to sump-pumping puddles with a crazy straw. It’s a true labor of love.
