Testing the limits of new Knolly Endorphin 27.5
Steve and I were on assigment photographing the new Endorphin 27.5 for Knolly bikes. The Endorphin has been on trails since 2009 and the new version of it just hit the stores. We both sat down and wrote ideas for the shoot. Two days covering various trails in Whistler, including bike park. We made sure Steve would ride it in every possible scenerio – smooth flowy trails, technical climbs and descents, roots, rocks, loam, xc race. Once we did that we decided to step it up and take it to the Whistler bike park to push it’s limits.
“The bike rips and is capable of so much more than the traditional definition of a trail bike. It descends as well as and climbs better than the old version. They retained the fun ride qualities the past Endorphin had and even managed to lose a small amount of weight in it’s transformation. If you’re looking for a trail bike that can hold it’s own on the downhills or if you liked the last edition and are looking to upgrade, this is your bike. ” – Steve Storey
