Motorcycle Rider Launches Off Massive Ramp To Test “Parabike”

Sometimes, when you see certain ideas unfolding on your screen, it makes you really happy to be on this side of the screen and not partaking in the action. With something like this, sure, it could probably provide quite the adrenaline rush for the person trying it out but to us, it looks so sketchy that you would definitely need to be a professional to give this one a shot. However, it looks like the daredevil in question here is fully committed to pulling this stunt off and is going to do whatever it takes to make it happen, even if it means just launching off of a ramp and hoping that everything comes out alright on the other side.
With the stunt display that has been known as the “parabike,” essentially it takes the liberty of combining the art of the dirt bike with paragliding, just as the name infers. However, we have to admit that it is a display that we could help but get a little bit nervous for as the rider launched his way off of the incline, sending himself into the air big time and pulling out the cord on the parachute just moments before it was too late. For a second there, we definitely thought that he wasn’t going to make it out of the other side without a couple of bumps and bruises to complement this memory as captured on video.
If you follow along with the video below, you’ll be able to check out the whole scenario that is very much something that we don’t recommend you try for yourself. However, it does look like the daredevil in question here is able to pull out a success story as he manages to rip the cord and stick the landing, gliding slowly to a stop with something that is guaranteed to get the heart rate going in a hurry.
