The 5th of October, or rather 5.10., is naturally linked to Five Ten® – THE BRAND OF THE BRAVE™. A bank holiday for all outdoor- and action sports folks!
THE BRAND OF THE BRAVE ™ is the home of some of the greatest athletes in climbing, biking and action sports. Said that we have put together some mind-blowing Five Ten® moments captured over the last 12 months. Featuring some of the greatest athletes on the planet playing with gravity. And we would like to share them once again with you. Of course all those moments come out of the wide range of brave activities our shoes perfectly support. Stay tuned, check it out and meet us in Nuremberg or Brixen these days!
Danny Hart: Hart and Soul Part 1:
It was a legendary run at Champéry, that made Danny Hart to the UCI World Champion of Mountainbike Downhill Racing last year September. Unfortunately Danny was injured this year and couldn´t defend his title, but with Greg Minnaar the crown remains within the Five Ten® family and we are sure Danny will be back next year! Exciting prospect indeed! Enjoy Hart and Soul Part 1 and be once more psyched about the incredible racing sequence in Champéry, the massive whip and the story behind! A true Five Ten® moment
Mayan Smith-Gobat: Salathé:
Almost exactly one year ago, Mayan Smith-Gobat as the 2nd women in the world achieved to freeclimb the Salathé route on El Capitan in the Yoesmite Valley. ‘Beautiful and brutally unforgiving’ - that´s her comment about the crux of the route. The video with its statements and insights gives 1st hand feeling par excellence. Just to come back one year later managing to get the Women´s speed record on the Nose. Great year, Mayan, congratulations! And great to have you on the Five Ten® Elite Team
Alexander Polli: Reality of Human Flight:
‘Those magnificent men in their flying machines’ most likely Alexander Polli imbibed from his infancy. Mind-blowing, impressive and scary at the same time. The crazy thing is, those guys know exactly what they´re doing, otherwise they wouldn´t be part of the Five Ten® family for sure. Just enjoy zero gravity and men playing in the skys like birds. Advisory: After watching the video more than three times one starts searching for the smartest way to start wingsuitflying oneself.
