Kyle Smaine


Kyle Smaine was raised right at the base of South Lake Tahoe’s best mountain bike trails. He spent the winters skiing until the snow melted and then began chasing thrills on Northern California singletrack. Consumed by a winter contest circuit as a professional halfpipe skier, he is one of the only testers without extensive bike racing experience…yet his Strava times say otherwise. Kyle has spent several summers wrenching on bikes at a local shop and likely empties too much of his bank account to feed his bike addiction.
