Jeremiah Smith is one of those riders that has been putting in work year after year and it’s finally been paying off. He has a major bike sponsor, travels on a pretty consistent basis, rides exactly how he wants to ride, and just recently finished on the podium at X Games in Los Angeles. He ended up in third, right behind Garrett Reynolds and amongst the top street riders in the world. It’s not every day that you get to line up with nine of the best riders in the world on live T.V. but he’s no stranger to laying it down when it counts. He’s the type of person that knows what he wants, and does what he wants. He has his daily routine pretty dialed and rides more than most people that I know. I caught up with him as soon as he got back from the X Games to talk a little bit about riding, life and the future. Keep on reading to find out what he does in his downtime, where he plans on moving someday and what projects he’s currently working on.

Colony recently came across some footage that was shot of Chris Courtenay all the way back in 2011, and somehow got lost in the shuffle. Better late than never, so they tossed them in Adobe Premiere, skipped the music and got these clips to your eyeballs as quickly as they could after discovery. ET nose press to pice 270 around 1:10 is my favorite.
Here’s a rad new promo video from Eclat featuring their new Ridgestone tires and Sebastian Anton putting them to good use! Hit that play button for a closer look at the tire and some real good clips!
“Filmed with Sebastian Anton by Oliver Michel. Putting the new Eclat ‘Ridgestone’ tires to the test.
Tires are tires right? We think not. Long gone are the days when any old tire will do and today more than ever, the rubber that rolls you around needs to be exactly what you desire.
At Eclat we went directly to the team first, we asked them what kind of tire they would like and we worked closely to create ‘The Ridgestone’. Its not just a nice looking tire either, it’s a perfect mix of tread amount, slick and overall thickness. It’ available in two versions — a slick version and a knobbly version for more grip.
It’s ideal for street riding or ramps and tough enough to take the strain these days. Nathan was involved in the early stages of creation and the initial drawings, he bounced ideas back and forth with Shane to think up the name and together with our product designers we ended up with what we think is one of our best and most progressive tires yet.“
A few weeks back we caught a sneak peek of the new Cult Investment Cast Sekt fork they were working on. Today they released the photo above along with some specs for us. This fork is made from 100% heat-treated 4130 chromoly. It will feature 5mm thick investment cast dropouts with a 28mm offset. They’ve made it so the fork is wider to fit the monster truck tires as well. These will also come with a LIFETIME WARRANTY which I think is a new thing for Cult. These will be out later this fall so start saving!
