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.
