“Getting into mountain biking for me was a daunting task at first. I wanted to take baby steps and I realized how approachable biking is when you take it one step at a time.” -Kimmy Fasani

If you haven’t heard of Burton-sponsored professional snowboarder Kimmy Fasani, just search her name on YouTube and get ready to be amazed. As the first woman to land a double backflip in both the park and backcountry, we rank her in the category of badass. And, like so many winter sport athletes, she rides Specialized to train during the off-season.

Kimmy Fasani rides the Rumor—you’ll see more of her in the coming months. We’ll follow her story as she overcomes an injury and returns to mountain biking aboard her Rumor.

What she really represents is a new rider. Do you love to trail run, hike, rock climb, or just get outside, but haven’t mountain biked yet? Why not? This bike can make it happen.

The Rumor, and trail obsessed riders like Kimmy, are about to make women’s mountain biking the next big thing. Thank you for helping us #spreadtherumor.
