Behind the scenes at Red Bull Kluge
Everything Red Bull touch seems to turn to awesome, so we weren’t disappointed when their latest edit, The Athlete Machine – Red Bull Kluge, hit the web.

Featuring 12 of the company’s greatest athletes, including mountain biker Danny MacAskill, BMX rider Drew Bezanson, skateboarder Joey Brezinski and MXer Robbie Maddison, Red Bull define Kluge as ‘a witty, yet elegant solution that succeeds in performing a particular task’ – watch it now:
