Many a lasting friendship has been built around the mutual love of riding mountain bikes. Mark Weir and Ben Cruz are the perfect example. Though more than a decade apart in age, this pair of prolific CamelBak sponsored pro racers have been shredding trails together since before Cruz could legally drive a car. Today, that friendship (and a love of great dirt) endures, as you can see in this video. Though the weather didn’t completely cooperate, Weir and Cruz found two-wheeled bliss on some new trails in the Quincy, California area.

Along for the ride on this shred session is the CamelBak Low Rider Skyline hydration pack, which positions water and cargo weight on the hips, lowering a rider’s center of gravity and giving them better balance and more stability on the bike. This unique design also reduces the upper portion of the pack, improving back ventilation and freedom of movement so you can rail tight turns and blast through berms like never before. And as you can see, it’s certainly not slowing these two down.
