    THE NOMAD was a headline film for the IF3: MTB Film Festival in Canada, USA, France & Beyond! From outdoor screenings, to big indoor parties, the film was a smash hit.


    THE NOMAD headlined the EMTB festival in Edmonton. The film helped bring in over 300 attendees to raise money for EMBA and local trails.


    Everywhere the film went, we partied. From a sold out home crowd of 400+ in Calgary, to filling bars and theatres everywhere we went. Crowds were on the edge of their seats.

"So you guys are like the Jehovah's Witnesses of mountain biking, you just knock on peoples shuttle rig windows, throw beers at them, crank their stereos to ten and force them to accept the stoke into there life"
-Some Dude at the Canmore Premiere


The Nomad presented by Knolly Bikes follows the journey of 8 riders proving you don't have to be the best to just love it. Produced by Austen Tanney the film explores personal progression and the refusal to conform to the industry benchmarks of race results, hashtags and followers to gauge success. If this film inspires just one person to take that trip, hit that drop, or buy that bike, then we have done our job!​The industry has been in a rut, we scroll the same Instagram and Tik Tok reels of regurgitated sounds, double-tapping the same hashtags and following the same exhausting trends. We decided it was time to bring back the vibes of personal progression that our forefathers used to create this sport in the days of New World Disorder. There was a time when you rode new features for yourself, and the thought of capturing "content" did not even exist. That is the true FREERIDE spirit and the flavour of this film.With our budget being equivalent to the price of three cases of Kokanee, we didn't expect Spielberg cinematography. But all of the sudden our vibe attracted a new tribe. We acquired a film crew and the support started to roll in. We quickly learned that there was something immensely special about capturing your best friends pushing their limits and sharing in those golden moments of progression and success.
