There are many talented mountain bike riders out there, but very few that match the vision for unique lines, the guts and skills to massively send it, and the ability to make it look so effortless. Remy Metailler is one of those few. Breaking into the light with video highlights of never-done-before lines at Whistler bike park, he has taken approach to raw trails and even Red Bull Rampage, and has even earned his own catch line for this style of riding, #TheRemyLine. We’re stoked to partner with Remy and to support his inspiring and informative YouTube and Instagram content. Read on to learn more about Remy, his favorite trails to ride, and all the products that can withstand his hard charging riding style.
I started Mountain Biking when I was 16, I would say. Even though I always had a bike, that is when I decided to make riding my main hobby.
My favourite experience was to go to Whistler. It was such a dream growing up, making it happen after university was incredible. After that being invited to Rampage was the cherry on the cake!
Downhill and freeriding is probably my favourite kind of riding even though I spend more time on my trail bike.
My main objective in creating content is to give back to the community: entertainment, tips, knowledge and more importantly to get people stoked on riding bikes!
I originally came to Canada for biking and skiing. I preferred skiing growing up, but guess what... I've never been very good at it, so I ended up becoming a mountain biker, ahaha. Also, many people mistake it, but I'm French, not Quebecois, and I started to like cheese when I arrived in BC... strange I know!

When you charge lines as hard as Remy does, you have to know that you can trust every piece of gear that you ride to hold up to abuse and to perform at peak level. Remy's choice of bikes and gear reflect years of testing the limits to find the products that match his level of riding and rowdy line choices. For the rest of us, this means we can trust these products to handle anything we can throw at them. Check out below the products Remy rides and why he loves them.
A rider like Remy demands a lot from his suspension and DVO has risen to the challenge. With a reputation of using the highest quality materials for every part, advanced cartridge designs with strong reliability and serviceability, and hand-assembled with an elevated level of quality control, these forks hold up to the massive levels of hard charging they'll see under Remy. Plus, they feature a variety of tuning adjustments that let Remy perfect the feel for the specific conditions or trails he'll be riding.
While we all may not ride like Remy, DVO has a fork that meets the riding needs of most every rider out there. Check out the table to find your perfect fork match.
Like the forks managing things on the front of his bike, Remy needs rear shocks that will hold up to big hits, help maintain traction, and give him the pop he needs to send his rediculous lines. Again, DVO answers the call with their impressive line of air and coil rear shocks. Similar to their forks, these shocks are crafted with utmost attention to detail, rigorous testing, packed with tuning features, and designed for riders by riders.
Whether you love pusing limits on descents or finding your threshold while mashing pedals, you can find the right version for your favorite style of riding and type of bike using the table.
By now, you may be sensing a theme. Remy's gear has to hold up to an absolutely bonkers amount of abuse (as evidenced by this photo of this massive send). Luckily, e*thirteen wheels and tires are up to the job.

They even have wheels designed to meet the demands of e-bikes, for those who are into that. Beyond that, e*thirteen has a broad range of tires with unique compounds, tread patterns, and protection to meet every rider's needs out on the trail
It's one thing for mountain bike apparel and protection to be tough enough to match Remy's capabilities, but it must also be comfortable and stylish.

With a clean aesthetic, quality materials, and features designed to improve your ride experience, Fly Racing gear has your riding needs covered from head to toe.
Camelbak hydration packs pair nicely with a good ride kit. They utilize several features to minimize the feel of wearing a pack and improving breathability and comfort. Plus, their smartly designed bags come in a variety of designs and sizes to let you carry as much gear and water as you need.
There are many other products that find their home on Remy's bikes, and we could heap praises on how awesome they all are and why Remy chooses them, but this article would start getting really long. So, we recommend checking out the products from some of Remy's favorite brands and seeing what other riders have to say about their products in our reviews and "Why You Bought This" sections of each product page.
