Past Projects

Here are some examples of projects we have completed. keep checking back for new projects and updates.
Rude Rock
Grade 4 MTB trail

 We'll let legendary international photographer Sven Martin describe this one (taken from his Red Bull article for Queenstown:

"Rude Rock is all about speed, flow and leaning on your bike. I don't think anyone could have done a better job flagging and sculpting this trail. It complements the natural topography beautifully. This is how tracks are meant to be built."

 

We designed this trail and built it with Evan Winton on the machine, it's become an instant classic with riders of all abilities and helped put Queenstown on the map as a world class riding destination

Thundergoat
Grade 2 MTB trail

A very challenging build in the Queenstown Bike Park for Skyline Enterprises.

The brief was for several types of trail in one and the terrain was not suited to an easy trail. Lots of stubborn stumps, very shallow rock and overhanging bluffs to build through. All through very thick vegetation with a large water catchment area.

We broke out the big guns and scoured the hill for the best possible line.

We broke copious amounts of rock and ferried thousands of tons of dirt with the bobcat and eventually fiund our way through.

The famous 'scenic berm' must have more instagram hits than other berm worldwide!

Canyon Swing walking track


1.2m width machine built walking track with gravel surface.

The client required an access track to a new attraction that would be durable and user friendly.

The site was on extremely steep sidehill with lots of rocky bluffs to weave and break through with our hydraulic rock breaker

We used lots of drainage techniques to control water seeping down the steep hillside

What's up?
MTB climbing trail
 

Design and build of a grade 2 climbing trail for Queenstown MTB club.

 

This trail was machine built but designed to be as narrow as possible and blends into its environment beautifully.

 

We designed this climb so be nice and easy with mellow gradients with mini downhill sections sprinkled in which has resulting in a fun trail that people enjoy to ride up!

 

The trail crosses a creek several times so we had to consider drainage as this trail is busy year round.

Asphalt pump track and kids bike park

This is the first asphalt pump track in the Southern Hemisphere.

 

We designed and built this kids bike park in a busy Queenstown subdivision for Queenstown council. It consists of an asphalt perimeter track around a rugby pitch with mellow berms and rollers, an easy 'North Shore' area with low bridges and rocks and 2 pump tracks. 

One extremely easy with very small features suitable for run bikes and one more advanced asphalt pump track complete with tunnel suitable for a wide range of bigger kids.

Cromwell Bike Park

The Cromwell Bike Park features a full size BMX track, dirt jumps, pump track and 2 learn to ride areas.

Kids absolutley love it and it's great to see how Cromwell has been transformed with thousands of young (and older) kids tearing around on bikes.

We worked alongside Benchmark construction who provided materials and we designed and shaped them into a fun and accessible facility for all ages.

Landscaping duties taken care of by local contractors and epic volunteers
