Portrait Ethan Nell
Ethan, 22, grew up riding MX but soon after grew in love with the intense steeps and drops mountain bikers were pulling off at the Rampage events near his Utah home.
Since, Nell has competed in events such as the Dark Fest Series, Crankworx Whistler and of course the Red Bull Rampage. Ethan will be riding his YT Tues equipped with MAGURA’s most powerful brake – the MT7 Raceline four piston brakes.
Bike Check: YT Industries TUES with MT7 Raceline brakes
The athletes and the Course diggers are the magicians, but the mountain bikes that can withstand the abuse of this Kind of riding are the unsung heroes. Since 2016 Ethan Trusts in the Bikes from YT Industries. This is his YT TUES CF.
The MT7’s will provide all the power and especially lever control that Nell needs to make it down the course with style and safety. Ethan chooses full stopping power with 203 mm Storm HC rotors in front and rear. His cockpit is granted with adjustable HC3 Levers, providing him an innovative ratio adjust to fine tune his brake in terms of power.
