Atherton Bikes have released the first fifty build slots for their additive manufactured bikes to early followers of the brand.
After more than 12 months of intensive development and getting on for 20 different prototypes made possible through additive manufacturing technology, Atherton Bikes is ready to release two limited edition products with custom fit available on all models.
Gee Atherton said “2019 was an amazing year for us, with the new bikes moving from a CAD design to three World Cup wins in a matter of months. Since we announced that we would be building our own bikes we’ve been overwhelmed by demand to make them available for sale but we were determined that the bike that we released would be 100% ready. After 13 months we’re excited to say that we’ve finally reached that point, we have two awesome products that we’re itching to get out there. “
The initial product offer will be a DH bike and a 29” Enduro bike with 150mm travel.
Prices will start at £3,400 (£2,883 exc VAT) for an Enduro frame with full bikes from £5,500 (4,543 exc VAT). DH builds start from £6000 (£5000 exc VAT).
The limited edition product will retain the raw carbon tubes and black lugs that were so well received in the prototype stages and feature a unique 3D printed limited edition number.
Rachel Atherton said “Being a start up company we’ve had to prioritise resources and it was clear from the start that product always came top of the list. Being honest this leaves us a little behind with our website and production facility. So while we catch up and before a full launch in Spring we wanted to offer something to those people who have been there from the start."
Priority for the first fifty build slots will be given to those who are signed up to our mailing list. We’ve connected with some great people over this last year and this is our way of saying thanks for that support.
This is a huge journey for us all, it’s been fun, exhausting and hugely emotional at times. Ultimately we’re building this company from the ground up and we want to ensure we do so at a pace that doesn’t compromise the product or the service we offer. So a huge thanks for being patient with us but we’re confident that it’s been worth it!

Is there a better way to start the year than with a short trip to the Mediterranean? That’s exactly what Austrian mountain bike star Fabio Wibmer thought, so he packed his bags, grabbed his brand-new Canyon Torque and hopped on the plane to Israel. In the first video featuring his new bike, Fabio rides across the Middle Eastern country, discovering plenty of bike spots along the way, from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and from the Dead Sea to Eilat and the Red Sea down south.
Just how well Fabio and his Torque work together can be seen perfectly in the new edit, as the 24-year-old rider doesn’t only hit some big urban spots in Israel’s biggest cities, but also wanders into the Negev Desert to put his new bike to the test, hitting big lines and tricks like a Suicide No-Hander and a big Backflip on some sizeable drops. More so, it turns out the Austrian can also shred on water, visiting the Dead Sea on the way down to Eilat.
Israel is my Playground takes Fabio from Tel Aviv-Jaffa to Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, the Negev Desert as well as to Eilat and Timna National Park and was produced by rasoulution.

Racing in Guide, which is near Xining (Qinghai province) - China.
The race is really special, because the landscape is so stunning, it looks like the Redbull Rampage in Utah. But it's in China.
So of course we did also some freeriding there ;-).
It was amazing!!

for trials and mountain bike professional Fabio Wibmer, 2020 not only marks the beginning of a new decade, but also of a new era: as of now, the Torque, Sender and a brand-new trials bike will be the Austrian’s bikes of choice. With Canyon as his new bike partner, Fabio is happy to finally have one supplier for all of his bikes. The German Direct-2 consumer brand even created their very first trials bike for Fabio. As the newest member of the Canyon Team, Fabio will continue to show spectacular bike action and already has plans for the first adventures with his new rides.
The bike manufacturer from Koblenz, Germany welcomes their newest and probably most famous team member with a very special gift: they created a new bike for Fabio. The first Canyon trials bike will complete Fabio’s bike pool together with the proven Torque and Sender. “I am very happy to have found a new partner in Canyon, which supplies me not only with an enduro and a downhill bike, but also with a trials bike, and the quality of the Canyon bikes is self-explanatory,” explains the 24-year-old.
As the newest Canyon Team Rider, Fabio finds himself in the best of company with riders like Thomas Genon and Tomas Lemoine. Roman Arnold, founder and CEO of Canyon Bicycles, is stoked to have Fabio joining Canyon: “He is an extraordinary character, with a calm demeanor that belies an incredible work rate coupled to maximum fun on the bike. It is exactly this spirit that engages such a huge audience, and that includes me!"

New year, new decade, New Year’s resolutions. It’s January and as always after the festive period the rush for the gym starts again. In some random Scottish gym a pretty famous newbie got spotted hitting the facilities. None other than Scottish Mountain and Trials Bike legend Danny MacAskill entered his local gym and made good use of the setup. As you might expect Danny’s approach on fitness and exercise is a little different to the average gym member. Good for us that he teamed up with Red Bull and his friends from Cut Media who recorded his workout laps for documentation. Make sure to lean back, hit the play button and enjoy Danny’s first project in 2020, Gymnasium.
Danny’s take on his latest project: “It’s fair to say that gyms aren’t really my natural habitat! I take my hat off to people who go every day to stay in shape, as I much prefer to hop on my bike and keep myself fit that way. We wanted this video to be a reminder to all those looking to get fit in 2020, that you don’t have to be miserable, there’s plenty of fun ways to hit your fitness goals. For me, it has been and will probably always be my bike.”
Danny's latest project Gymnasium follows his most iconic films like Wee Day Out, Cascadia, The Ridge, Imaginate and Way Back Home.

About Danny MacAskill
Danny MacAskill stunned hundreds of thousands of viewers in a matter of hours in 2009 when his first video “Inspired Bicycles” was uploaded to YouTube by his friend and videographer Dave Sowerby. The video showed the young Scotsman, born on the Isle of Skye, perform never seen before tricks on a trials bike in the streets of Edinburgh. “Inspired Bicycles” didn’t only spark Danny MacAskill’s professional career, but also catapulted a niche sport into the spotlight of a mainstream audience. Apart from having performed in a number of major productions such as “Imaginate” (90 million views), “The Ridge” (67 million views) and “Cascadia” (58 million views), Danny has also had the honor of bearing the Olympic torch during the tour in Glasgow for London 2012, participated in a Hollywood production and been nominated for National Geographic’s “Adventurer of the Year Award”.
