Duncan Philpott is a Sheffield local and a pro photographer on the EWS circuit. We lent him an Edit v3 to take out to Madeira for the 2019 race. Back home after a long season away, he's put a blog post together for us.
The Fade is back by popular demand - frames are due to arrive here on Friday. We've updated the specs on the Fade Works full build and there's a Fade To Black limited edition bike too. Here's the lowdown on everything that's new.
A couple of weeks ago it was two years since James started working at Airdrop so it seems like a good opportunity to reflect on everything that's changed in that time, what's new and where we're heading.
When you've got a new bike to launch it can be tough trying to stand out from the crowd; there's so much great content out there. But when the Edit v3 was ready to go we knew we had to do something a bit different, so we went back to the drawing board, with a bit of help.
We caught up with Graham Pinkerton, a full time mtb guide operating out of Chamonix. Graham's put over 7100km of distance and 534,000m of vertical into his Edit v2 in just 21 months. With a lot of emphasis on the new Edit v3 now, we wanted to hear from a seasoned v2 rider how his bike has handled the hard yards...
Since we launched the new Edit v3 we've had a lot of good questions coming through email and social media. With frames arriving any day, we thought we should take a stab at providing some good answers.
