Shred! 2 is the epitome of “indie” development.The game is a 100% self-funded project produced entirely by one man in a bedroom (well actually it’s now a landing due to having a baby), who is totally and utterly hellbent on creating a video game worthy of our beloved sport.
Ride as Sam Pilgrim in over 50 relentlessly paced levels.
The action takes place in environments inspired by classic video scenes, Mountainbike culture and personal riding experience.
Save your thumbs! The mobile version supports Bluetooth gamepads

Choose a Haibike hardtail or trail bike and go “Shred!”.
An intense 1st person POV (with nausea-inducing VR support) will be available on PC!
Providing things go according to plan, the game is due to be released in spring 2018 on Android and iOS, for a very affordable price. A graphically superior and VR enabled PC / Xbox / PS4 version is due to follow later in the year.The Pinkbike community was instrumental in getting the first game off the ground and I hope the sequel will prove to be a fun riding substitute for those times where it’s not possible to get out on the trails!

PRESS RELEASE: Saalfelden Leogang
Saalfelden Leogang, Austria, January 26, 2018 – Once again the FMB World Tour season started in front of the backdrop of Leogang’s ‘Steinberge’. Now in its 13th year, White Style once again attracted a field of 20 elite slopestyle riders from 6 nations. For the first time in White Style history, the 16 athletes who made it through qualification had to battle each other in a head-to-head elimination format, with the loser of each match-up being knocked out of the contest.
During training, the 20 invited riders already showed that the level of riding continues to rise with each edition. As a result, the crowd at the Schantailift was already treated to several Double-Flips and 720s during qualification. One of the early highlights was an unbelievably clean Backflip-Superman-Seatgrab by Spanish young gun Marcel Durbau.
Training and qualification were held in perfect bluebird conditions. As the sun set and the lights turned on, the elimination rounds started with the Round of 16. Unfortunately, a developing bank of fog led to decreasing visibility for the riders, and as a result, the contest was eventually cancelled after the quarterfinals without a fair ranking.
