    responsible trail use

    I love me some yeti
    I love me some ripping video

    however....

    Have you noticed that every video these days show people skidding/blowing up corners? Should we really encourage people to ride like that?

    sorry, feeling like an old nanny this morning....but watching the new vid from Yeti, I couldn't help but say something.

    pretty sure IMBA says "skidding is bad form"

    carry on ....

    I look at that photo as blasting through a corner. It's much different than skidding through a corner, which is more like dragging your rear tire through a corner because you don't have the skill to pin it.

    You are mixing up skidding and shredding. Skidding is bad for trails, and an obvious indicator that someone probably sucks at life. And shredding is awesome and the proper way to live. See the difference. : )

    trust me, if i could pull off that maneuver without crashing....I would...but I can't...so I'm left with criticizing it.

    There is a little known exception to that rule which says skidding is fine when done in slow motion and/or in view of an HD camera.
