Any Way Down - Design Inspiration


by David Barnard May 31, 2016

Big or small, a mountain range can be intimidating and welcoming at the same time, offering endless possibilities for excitement. It doesn’t matter where you are; sat in a chair lift rising through the clouds, in a car flying along, or cycling on an indistinguishable road; something happens when hills and mountains appear.

A particular thought that pops into our mind fuelled the first sketch lines for Any Way Down: “What would be the best way down?” It happens when you’ve got a board strapped to your feet, a tingle of apprehension as the snowy options unfold beneath you. It happens as you cycle up and see trails split and divide offering countless options for a way down.

One of the best “Any Way Down” moments though is when your not attached to your downhill instrument of choice and you see the horizon change from a distant flat haze as contours tighten and shapes start to eat into the skyline.

Mountains become clear and your mind drifts to the moment; at the top of the hill looking down. Mountain Bike, Mountain Board or Snowboard in hand, you know that from the top you can choose Any Way Down.

When we ride, we enjoy nature, explore the pure beauty of the outdoors and hope for the occasional, unexpected encounter with local wild life. Many a cycle trip is brought to a halt when kites or buzzards are flying around. What would you do with the ability to fly high in the hills?

Up Lifting - Design Inspiration

by David Barnard September 14, 2016

When mountain biking some riders love going uphill; the grind, the pain, the challenge, the pounding heart. This design is not about that. Downhill centres are not about technical ups, just wide flat gravel paths meandering their way past the trails to the start line. Wouldn’t it be great if you could fly up like you fly down? Double dose adrenaline.
