The 33-year-old’s newest video showcases both Danny’s trails and enduro mountain biking skills – each of which merges to create a highly entertaining and creative edit. This video celebrates him joining the wider Adidas family after having been partnered with Five Ten for almost a decade.
What’s unique about MacAskill is he has translated his trial skills into useful trail skills. He looks at an urban landscape like a canvas and is able to create lines and move that define poetry on a bike. When on a trail, every hill, rock, tree is a feature that can be complemented with speed and style to mix up one’s ride.
“I have been wearing and working with Five Ten for close to a decade now. It doesn’t matter whether I am riding my trials bike through the streets of Edinburgh and Glasgow or exploring local trails in Scotland or other trails around the world on my enduro bike, grip on the pedals is always very important to me. I am stoked to expand the relationship by joining the Adidas team for both my apparel and footwear from now on.” – Danny MacAskill
Danny’s shoe of choice in the video is the new Sleuth DLX, the perfect representation of the collaboration between Five Ten and Adidas. It’s urban style and sleek casual silhouette inspired from the Adidas classics that performs well on trails, pump tracks, and in daily life.
