Downhill Mountain Biking With a 360-Degree Camera

There is tons of mountain bike footage out there, some more creative than others and captured at almost every angle imaginable. What if you did not have to worry about getting the right camera angle? Yes that is right, a 360-degree POV Camera. I have watched a lot of different mountain bike films and clips but the Redbull 360 clip they recorded is one of the most unique clips I have ever seen. I think this will soon be the must have POV camera for all action sports in the near future.

A Norwegian company Making View
has developed these “full spherical 360” videos with their ViewCam 360 system, which allows you to control the angles using the arrow keys on your keyboard (or your mouse). Not only can you check out the traditional POV to see what’s happening ahead, but you can also look to the sides and even directly behind to get a better, more in the moment experience. Check it out below.

For this clip, Making View hooked up with Red Bull Rampage competitor Brendan Fairclough and his Scott11 teammates Florian Pugin and Noel Niederberger at the UCI World Cup Downhill event in Hafjell, Norway.
