We caught up with Max Fredriksson at this years Suzuki Nine Knights in Reschenpass to chat all things bikes….
So it came as compete bike from NS and I changed a few companents on it. It has a Carbon NS Bar, Cromag stem, grips, seat post and chain ring. Suspension is Rock Shoxs rear end and front and Sram drive chain as well Rock Shox forks which are the boXXer World Cup
My tyres I ride Continental. I run them super hard on my downhill bike. 60 psi on downhill and usually down to 25/30 when I go trail riding. On my downhill bike I have 27.5 inch wheels and for Slopestyle 26 inch; I hope they stay that way, they are too big otherwise!
The best feature about my bike would have to be that it’s all black! I actually like my wheels, I like the sound of them and they hold up when I land 90 on a whip and when I cant bring it back. Also the frame, its is super playful – Its not like a race downhill bike more like a park bike which suits me pretty good!
Maintenance wise, I try to wash it as much as possible, change the chain, grips, and pedals pretty often to keep it as fresh as possible. This is actually only the 2nd week riding it. The 1st week was in Whistler and I only rode it 3 days as we were so busy riding slopestyle.
This course at Nine Knights is more made for downhill bikes it would be fun on my jump bike as well but recently I have been spending time on downhill bike to get used to it and doing some new stuff on that!
I have been doing slopestyle since 8 and before I rode race BMX, downhill racing, and a whole bunch of other stuff so I always had 3 or 4 bikes all at the same time! Out of all disciplines, race BMX has helped me a lot because I started off with that and I learnt how to carry speed, which is what you need for slopestyle!
After this, I’ll be going home but Sam Reynolds wants me to do UK tour then I’ll do building then film for NS bikes!
