Enns has been an icon in BMX long before moving to California where he now enjoys a seemingly endless supply of pools and other untouched spots. Check out Jason Enns’Β awesome section in Volume’s newest full length video ‘The Finer Things‘ where he treats us to a tour of unique transitions, confident toothpick variations, all put together a long long way from his hometown of Winnipeg.

Mike Mastroni did an awesome job on the video – and there’s an awesome feature outline the project. Go check out Mike Mastroni – The Hardest Thing To Do on Dig BMX Magazine for the full story behind the making of Volume’s new video.

4. Jason’s Tunnel Line.

This is one of my favorite clips in Jason’s part from a spot/trick/filming perspective and also because you can tell Jason is just completely in his element here. For anyone who follows Jason on Instagram you know that he lives for finding pools, full pipes, tunnels, or really just any discoverable transition not intended for riding. Working on this line with Jason was like watching a big kid in a candy store as he went to town making dams, cleaning up puddles, and sweeping the entire tunnel of debris. Also, fun fact: The gap to wall from the square tunnel into the round tunnel followed by carves to wallride 180 are actually at two completely different spots about a mile away from each other. With a little filming/editing trickery, nobody would ever be the wiser. For all you nerds reading this, keep that a secret.

Jason also had two awesome behind-the-scenes videos. They’re embedded below for your viewing pleasure.

 

 

Man, this is awesome.

Most BMX riders have a couple memories like this that stand out from their early years becoming obsessed with this shit, and it’s awesome to hear Winnipeg’s very own Jason Enns share an early one. Sounds like Devil’s Dip, to me.

Spring is coming.

It was 1999 when Jason Enns left Kink to join Brian Castillo on Volume Bikes. The original Destroyer was eventually retired a couple years later – the double-wishbone and Budweiser graphics disappearing with it. Fortunately enough, Volume has decided to bring it back with some modern twists. Small dropouts, tapered tubing, and removable brake mounts / gyro tabs compliment the classic double-wishbone look. All these neat features are accompanied by some modern geometry, the most significant (to me) include a 75 degree headtube, 13.75″ rear end, and a healthy – for 2011 – weight of 4 lbs. 13 oz. It’s not often that a rider’s stint on a team exceeds an entire decade, and I think a frame is an excellent way to celebrate Jason Enns’ loyalty to Volume Bikes.

The end of 2010 has come and gone, and I decided to take a minute and ask some of my all-time favourite Canadians how their year went and how they expect the next one to go. We’ve got Jay Miron, Chris Silva, Jeremy Deme, Dave Osato, Mike Wilkinson, David Lang, Jason Enns, Dave ‘Drifter’ Stewart, and Glen Vanderheyden all down for the cause. Some of them had a great 2010, others not so much. We’ve got accomplishments, failures, hopes, and ambitions from all of them. If you’re Canadian, you’ve heard these names. I hope you find this even half as interesting as I did.
