Jumping your bike is one of the coolest things you can do. Jumping even higher is even cooler! Jumping a bike is fairly simple, it’s just not that easy. I spent some time working with YT legend @BKXC and these are the things we talked about. Follow along as Rob Drew weighs in on what it takes to get that air you’ve been chasing.

So many people have reached out and asked how to jump higher. Well, it all has to do with creating more energy on the takeoff and staying open to let that energy do it’s thing. Think of it like dribbling a basketball: if you want the ball to go higher, you push down harder. However, once you do that you need to raise your hand enough to let the ball go as high as the energy you’ve created allows it to.

In this instance, it has quite a bit to do with what you do with your feet. Tension in your heels is important and you need to have it there all the way through the rear wheel leaving the takeoff.

Give it a watch and let me know what you think!

Peace out DUMPERS!!
