Paul Basagoitia is one of the best slopestyle and dirtjump rider’s in the world. Two-time winner at Crankworx Whistler, Bass has stood on more podiums than most of his peers, in some of gravity riding’s more insane competitions. With a style that’s all smooth, mixed with a bevy of tricks that’s all top of the pile, the 25-year-old from Minden, Nevada recently sent us this ripping clip of him on a fully stock 2011 Kona Bass.
“I wanted to showcase that my signature bike is ready to go out-of-the-box, that you don’t have to spend any extra money to make it fully suited for professional level riding.” The bike you see in every shot is full handlebar to tire stock. Featuring a Marzocchi DJ2 100mm fork, Avid Juicy brakes, Maxxis Larson TT tires, Kona Custom DJ cockpit and a raw aluminum clearcoat finish, priced at $2,099 USD, the Bass is one of the best riding, best priced DJ specific dual suspension bikes on the market today.
