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.
