If you grew up watching the early freeride videos, Aaron Chase should be a household name. As a Cannondale athlete since the very early days of his career, when he recently announced that they would be parting ways his next move was anyone’s guess. After fighting his way back from a sever spinal injury in 2007, Aaron is making moves again on a bike. Specifically, the DW-link equipped super bikes manufactured by Pivot Cycles.
Signed to a new multi-year deal, Aaron will be piloting the Phoenix Carbon DH, Mach 6, Point, and M4x models from Pivot as well as anything else he can get a hold of. We’re happy to see Aaron land with another rad company, and look forward to the next “Through My Eyes Series” on a Pivot!
PHOENIX, AZ – Pivot Cycles is pleased to announce the addition of Aaron Chase to their roster of riders. Chase, a master in the world of freeride, is best known for pushing boundaries and for his technical and creative style, both on and off the bike. He has graced the covers of countless magazines, stood atop the most sought after podiums and is now best known for his progressive video projects. As a content producer for both GoPro and Red Bull Media House, Aaron’s videos have been seen on most major TV networks and his You Tube views number well over 100 million.
A true East Coaster, AC was born and raised in New Hampshire; calling Highland Mountain Bike Park his summer home and spending the remainder of the year at his home in New Jersey at the foothills of Mountain Creek Bike Park. “This is a new chapter, and I am excited to work with the entire team at Pivot. In order to make the kind of videos I’m known for, I need a full line of top tier bikes and the Pivot Cycles quiver that now lives in my garage is unbelievable. It’s like opening the door and seeing someone put a couple of Lambos in there. I also have to thank my long time friend Dave Weagle of DW Link fame for making the introduction.” explains Aaron Chase.
Chase has signed a multi-year deal with Pivot Cycles. Chris Cocalis, President of Pivot Cycles says “Aaron will bring something truly unique to the Pivot family – his innovative riding style is matched only by his ability to test equipment to its very limits. We look forward to seeing Pivot Cycles in Aaron’s incredible Red Bull and GoPro projects and to benefiting from his contributions to our product development process.“
Aaron Chase will be riding the new Pivot Cycles Phoenix Carbon DH as his downhill bike with the Mach 6, Point and M4X models for enduro, dirtjump and slopestyle applications. Additional bikes will be added to the quiver as the season and events dictate.
Chase will debut his full range of 2015 sponsors, including his Phoenix Carbon DH at the upcoming Manizales Urban Downhill Race in Colombia, where he will be filming the next video in his renowned Red Bull Media House “Through My Eyes Series”.
