If crammed parking lots and singletrack traffic jams aren’t your speed, take these emerging mountain bike meccas for a spectacular spin instead.

Many of us live for off-road biking and adventure cycling. Whether it’s single track, gravel, cross-country, downcountry, or downhill, mountain biking is a superb way of experiencing the backcountry.

The Rollerman Suit is Jean-Yves Blondeau’s own invention. It’s a suit of full-body armor, equipped with 32 wheels placed on the hands, feet, knees, torso, arms, and back. The suit gives the wearer the ability to roll on an part of his body, and especially downhill fast on their belly.

Jean-Yves created the suit as his final graduation project, when he was a student at an industrial design school in Paris in 1994.

He wanted to create something that didn’t yet exist, perhaps even something that filled gaps in gliding postures in sports, with a goal to enable the human body to move freely in all possible positions.

Jean-Yves said, he still makes these suits today, and it takes about 2 months to mould a complete set, and the suits sell for about $6,400 euro or about $6,760 US Dollars.

Now even though Jean-Yves is known as the Rollerman, and the suit would be best known as a rollersuit, wheel suit or rollerblade suit. The activity of using the suit, is referred to as body blading, roller suiting, and wheel suiting, but Jean-Yves coined his own term for using the suit, which he calls Buggyrollin.

Skiing some of the best backcountry lines in Jackson Hole. It was a rough winter for snow and weather, we had a slow start and lots of wind, and quite a few of my favorite Jackson lines never filled in enough to hit. I looked elsewhere for snow, including Canada, Alaska, and even Argentina. Everywhere I went, we had fun skiing, but still dealt with avalanche issues and hard layers underneath which kept me from hitting the big cliffs I love. It’s better to wait another year than get injured doing it in the wrong conditions.
