Strengths:    It was entertaining

Weaknesses:    out dated. I'm sure it kicked ass back in the day....

Bottom Line:   
I do enjoy the movie, but I DON'T LIKE THE NAKED GUY JUMPING! I think they should have cut out that scene. Although, it did add to the humor.

Strengths:    Good high energy sound track, gets you pumped up to bike. Alot of steep loose soil descents. Good video to learn the technique of going down steep slopes. Good helmet and bike frame camera shots at high speeds. High quality production.

Weaknesses:    If you want a variety of biking situations, like trials, high speed down hilling over rocks or through woods, jumps, etc this is not the video for you. Wish they had closer camera shots. Many shots are taken from across the valley.

Bottom Line:   
ok to good video

Submitted by John a Cross Country Rider from Elkton, MD USA

Date Reviewed: December 29, 2000

Strengths:    well, i think i paid like 38 for the boxed set. its a great concept; let's define freeride. they have some asskicken free riders. some sweet descents that i don't have the balls to try. yet. maybe if i keep watching...

Weaknesses:    you call that a soundtrack? the only other weakness is that all this stuff is cool once, but after you've seen a guy bomb one descent from a camera a quarter mile away, you've pretty much seen it all. instead they let you have this great perspective a ton of times over, and over, and over.

Bottom Line:   
my least fave of the kranked videos. but sok kiddies, each is better than the one before.

Strengths:    
Free


Bottom Line:   
I downloaded this movie from an FTP site as a 600MB asf file. It is real cool, especially since I didn't pay a damn dime for it!
The riders in this flick are truly heroic and Brian Lopes is the funk soul brotha.

Strengths:    
As we would expect this video rocks.


Weaknesses:    
to short for the money $25 plus


Bottom Line:   
The bottom line if you edited pass the extra crap, like the first 10 minutes, this video is less then a half hour, what is the deal? It appears they(producer) spent to much money on the graphics. If this was a hour video it would be five hot ones, if it wasn't almost $30 bones on top of that it would be four hot ones, so it is a silly three, $30 bones for a half hour. I should have got a massage after crashing trying to do those stunts-out!

Bottom Line:   
This video has lots of good footage. Also has lots of big drops, and some street riding. Its not to short, and has lots of good riding in it. Five chilies for all the really good riding footage, and the north shore riding.

Date Reviewed: June 7, 1999

Strengths:    
By far the best video I have ever seen. This is the only mountain bike video that competes with the extremity of the terra firma and crusty videos. The music rocks.


Weaknesses:    
My friends used to think that I was a good rider then I showed them this video, now they think that I suck.


Bottom Line:   
If you have never seen this video you are missing out. The whole thing gets you pumped to go out and ride yourself.

Date Reviewed: February 3, 1999

Bottom Line:   


Now this video has a sweet soundtrack to go with the unreal riding.
The guys are going of on the edge and not falling on every drop like in North shore extreme.
It has a good variance in riding from the the high speed kamloops sand pits to the slow speed north shore.
Cant wait to go and try myself in Kamloops

Bottom Line:   


This movie is rad.
Non stop excitment, out of control goodness.
Pure bike handing skills shown at there best.
Not like those cliff jumping monkeys in the north shore jungle.
I feel like hoping on my bike and signing those sandpits, with the ink of my wheel.
Cant wait for Kranked 2

Bottom Line:   


At first I thought this video ruled, but as I watched it over and over again it got kinda boring. It's still a good video, but it repeats itself too much. The music is good and has very good quality. Hook your VCR to your stereo, thats what gives it the 4th. star.

Date Reviewed: December 26, 1998

Bottom Line:   


Kranked is the best mountain biking video!! It stars a host of pros!
Richie Schley, Brett Tippie, Wade Simmons, Carys Evans all which happen to be rocky mountain fro riders! That's why they all happen to be riding Rocky Mountain Bicycles
The movie includes some wicked drop offs, crazy downhills, killer forest terrain and some all out amzing moves!
On the other hand the movie does have alot of Dune Surfing but if you pay attention and watch what the guys are doing it is killer!
It also has guest apearances by Brian Lopes, John Tomac, Dangerous Dan and Insane Wayne!!
Another Fine point about the movies is the music! Bands like Senser, the offspring, guttermouth and Filerbuster make the movie a hit!!
BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT!!!

Submitted by Duggy T a weekend warrior from Edinburgh, Scotland

Date Reviewed: November 26, 1998

Bottom Line:   


Too repetitive!!! Far to much dune surfing (about 90% of vid) not enough bombing along single track and getting nice air, mental street riding give us more, trials welcome because it breaks up the dune surfing, less blatant advertising (ALL the riders on Rocky Mountains), get the pros to show off their skills on something bigger than a beginners BMX track (i.e Brian Lopes), camera work is very good so maybe it's only saving grace - giving it a nice low score of II

Buying my first mtb - Kranked Factor?

I'm one step away from buying my first mountain bike. I'm just waiting for confirmation that it will fit in my 2006 Honda Civic 2-door Coupe. I don't want to add a rack on my car. I'm a noob. I'm a recreational trail cruiser from Toronto, Canada. I drive out of the city and go trail riding. ... Read More »

Innovations in Building: Kranked 8

I guess this is a couple of days old but I have to say "hats off" to the builders behind this Kranked 8 clip. Most of the stuff in here is WAY TOO BIG for me but I really love what they've done with the criss-cross lines. :thumbsup: :eek: Read More »
