NEW YORKER GOPRO ARTICLE FEATURING MOUNTAIN BIKER AARON CHASE

Late one fall afternoon two years ago, Aaron Chase, a professional mountain biker, was riding his bike in the Smoky Mountains. He’d powered up to a high-altitude ridge and was gazing, less than eagerly, at the trail down toward the backcountr. He wasn’t feeling well. He was tired, hungry, dehydrated, as well as a little woozy. In the argot, he was bonking.

He and the others, along with a professional photographer, had spent two days filming video footage of themselves down steep technical trails and executing tricks. They had brought along more than a dozen GoPros, the ubiquitous small digital point-of-view cameras.

Chase, who is sponsored by GoPro as well as exceptionally adept at using GoPro cameras to make videos. The mount consists of a lightweight carbon rod affixed to the top of his helmet, like a helicopter rotor, to which he attaches a pair of GoPros. One at each end, a couple of feet from the center, in the manner of two buckets hanging from a carrying pole. The rod can rotate around its center, its movements determined by the cameras’ weight and centrifugal momentum. Typically, Chase sets one camera a little farther out from his head than the other. With subtle tilts of his head, exploits the asymmetry to manipulate the cameras’ positions and movements as he rides. He is star athlete, director, and D.P. He gives as much thought to getting the shot as he does to nailing the trick.
