TRP announced this week a new partnership with French freeride and video star Rémy Métailler. Known as the ‘Flying Frenchie’, Métailler brings to the table a level of riding matched by few in the mountain bike world which is sure to prove a valuable asset to TRP. Métailler will run TRP brakes for the 2017 season, using the G-Spec Quadiem on his downhill bike and the new G-Spec Slate on his trail bikes.
Métailler is based in Canada’s much loved MTB mecca Whistler where he has a reputation for being one of the most progressive and innovative riders in the park. A two-time Red Bull Rampage finalist, he’ll be gunning for a spot in the top 10 this year. Métailler will also have plenty of opportunities to get involved in the ongoing R&D of TRP brakes, making similar contributions to those of four-time World Cup champ and TRP rider Aaron Gwin. Alongside the California, the 26-year-old Frenchman will help to develop products based on his experience gained on some of the most diverse tracks, trails and runs around the globe.
