The brief was simple: test Icon's new Raiden all-condition, all-weather motorcycle gear by putting two riders through all conditions and every kind of weather. The result is a 30-minute mini-movie called The Raiden Files that puts Ernie Vigil and The New Guy on a ride from Portland, Oregon to Dakar, Senegal with a few stops along the way.

There's a two-wheeled parkour through Portland, 1,000 GoPros, four-wheeled drones, Costa Rican rainforests and Brazilian deserts, and a whole lot more in the epic ride video posted below. It's good stuff, and if you need more Icon's Limiter magazine has it.

      Awesome video, but yeah Ikon gear sucks. I should know, got their "riding jeans" and helmet without doing any research first, lol!

      think i watched too much movies from www.pinkbike.com in my mind, during stage 2, I was expecting them to do tail whips at the jumps. stage2 is easy for mountain bikers. looks like an awesome trail for MTB.

      Just got a copy of Limiter with my Dennis Kirk order yesterday with this feature in it. Found the story about Japanese motorcycle builder "Bull Dock" more interesting.

      Maybe someday they'll make it to Dakar, but first they need to get out of Oregon. I know for sure every environment ridden through is available in Oregon and I'm pretty certain every scene was filmed in them. For the aspiring Tiger riders, you don't have to go to Costa Rica/Chile/Argentina/Brazil! Watch the credits for a number of shout-outs to Oregon agencies. I can't speak about the Iconwear. I had a great pair of boots they no longer produce. I hope their looks are backed-up by the materials and workmanship. Although, I wouldn't select them solely because of all the manufacturer logos and patches. Tone them down and maybe. The bikes are great to watch though!
