Crazy Crashes And No-Suspension: Downhill MTB Was So Different Back In 1992…

The scene has changed slightly in the past 22 years... And not just the ridiculous fashion!

Here at Mpora, we enjoy a good throwback to days of action sports past – whether it’s Thursday or not.

Take the video above, for example. Here, you’ll see six and a half minutes of downhill mountain bike carnage from 1992, and for modern fans of the sport, it’s barely recognisable.

The no-suspension bikes bounce around like a kangaroo on a trampoline…

From the wonderful 90s trance beats to the guys wearing football pads on their top half and lyrca on their bottom, you’re certainly in for a treat.

It’s probably the fact that the no-suspension bikes bounce around like a kangaroo on a trampoline that gets us though. No wonder the entire video is filled with gnarly crashes!

Have a watch and prepare to laugh. For an extended period of time.
