Chainsaws, chains, and comealongs. No, not the name of a beard-band from Durango, just some of the gear the Coastal Crew’s Dylan Dunkerton and Curtis Robinson hoof out into the woods in order to make that ol’ trail building magic happen. There’s other gear, too—hammers, nails, and shovels for example—but there’s one tool in particular that’s snuck up and taken them a bit by surprise with its power and downright killer capability. Hold onto your Ambush lids, kids—it’s an e-bike. Specifically, the Turbo Kenevo.
And before you say: “Guys, just ride a real bike,” consider this. To get to the chopper—the primo place where they need to dig, pull stumps, and hack logs in order to build a trail like the one in this video—they have to get all that gear out there. ALL that gear. On their backs, and trust us—it ain’t no itty-bitty bindle to carry.
