Freestyle Ride Through World’s BIGGEST Indoor Walkway

Red Bull said a film like this wouldn’t have been possible without advances in electric motorcycles. According to a press release from the company:

A traditional fuel-powered bike ripping through the indoor Skyways system would have caused disruption and distraction, but the electric bike enabled a silent powerhouse for Colton’s riding in locations never been done before, including onstage at Orchestra Hall [and] inside the Target Center where he pulled off the trick shot.


And Red Bull is right; there’s something about this whisper-quiet bike zipping around shopping malls and enclosed streets that adds to the stunning ambiance of this film. Instead of the rumble of an engine, we hear tire squeals and the gentle hum of a motor. It’s nice.

Anyway, after disrupting a few diners, Colton heads back up the escalator to rip things up once again. He blasts through the Skyway at full tilt, with the carpet absorbing almost every sound he makes as he whips past.

It makes going to the mall look like a whole heap of fun. With the death of city-center shopping imminent, we should probably just re-purpose all of these relics as bike parks. It’d be a much better use of our space, right?


But, there’ll be one rule in my city-center biking paradise: electric rides only.
