129-Foot Dune Jump? He Sent It

When it comes to the machines that you see launching their way off of sand dunes, you know these things are put to the absolute limit, testing out exactly how far you can push certain components, most notably the suspension, as these machines push their way off of massive inclines and catch some big time hang time, putting themselves in the air and making no bones about the fact that they’re holding nothing back, completely putting themselves at the liberty of gravity as it comes down incredibly hard, making sure that they get their value out of every last component that they invested their hard-earned money into.
This time, we check out some massive air from the crew over at Nitro Circus as they attempt to grab some insane air, taking their dirt bikes and throttling down as they approach a massive dune and launch themselves into oblivion as they come down an astonishing 129-feet from where they started!
Follow along in the video below as we are taken along for the ride and put dune-side to catch just the right slice of action as this combo really pushes the limits on exactly what gravity is able to handle. Even though the machines look pretty impressive and are able to get some pretty awesome air off of this jump, as physics would say, what goes up must come down and gravity really ends up spoiling the fun. However, it was a blast to catch this awesome air while it lasted. See that sight and find out exactly what the riders were going through during the whole situation as the footage rolls!
