If Mat Hoffman is psyched on this (which he is; he posted about it on Instagram), then I’m psyched. But really though, grabbing your front pegs in the middle of a no-footed backflip is pretty nuts. All respect to Kyle Heaser for doing it and paying homage to the legend himself.
“Dedicated to his idol Mat Hoffman himself, Kyle Heaser decided that Mat’s signature trick, the “Peacock Air” should be possible upside down in the middle of a flip. After an exciting email from Hoffman Enterprises saying “Mat doesn’t think he’s ever heard of anyone landing a peacock backflip and would love to see a photo or video of it!” Kyle’s inspiration & determination made him decide that Memorial Day weekend was a perfect time to send it here outside at The Factory, our local 100% rider funded ramp warehouse in Minneapolis. Would you like to see him keep working on it ?”
