• RedBull Uses 3D Modeling to Show Every Piece of a Formula 1 Car

    A new clip from Red Bull sees Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel explain the 2014 Formula One regulations — which are arguably the most complex the sport has ever seen. At the start, thousands of car parts simultaneously assemble around Dan to form the RB10. As Dan races to catch up Seb in his RB9, the World Champion’s car becomes transparent while travelling at full speed. The film then presents a visual sequence that shows the 2014 regulation changes taking shape and coming to life, as Seb’s car transforms from an RB9 into an RB10. As well as providing information on the new technical changes for 2014, the clip also presents a unique view of the technology at work inside this year’s Formula One cars.

  • This is What Happens When Red Bull Goes Off-Road on a Ski Slope

    Red Bull recently skinned out a Pro-4 off-road racing truck then took it on the snowy incline of Mount Snow for a little taste of what to expect from Red Bull Frozen Rush. Champion off-road racer, Ricky Johnson took advantage of all the extra powder by riding a figure eight trail with jumps and berms, weaving through trees. A pretty amazing video that makes you almost forget, Ricky is performing precision turns and jumps on terrain people slip on when walking.

  • Insane GoPro Video Of Backflip At Red Bull Rampage

    Last week we shared the highlights from Red Bull Rampage 2013 and it was an amazing video in its own right, but now you can watch the action from New Zealander Kelly McGarry’s point of view when he did a backflip over a 72-foot canyon, all thanks to his helmet-mounted GoPro camera. YouTube user Ankit Mn sums up our thoughts perfectly when he states “I hope the bicycle seat was big enough for the size of his balls.” We all do, Ankit Mn, we all do.

  • Watch Insane People On Bikes Fall Down Mountains At Red Bull Rampage [Video]

    Red Bull Rampage is an insane downhill mountain bike competition held annually in Utah’s Zion National Park. The 2013 Rampage wrapped up on October 13 and featured the biggest backflip ever and the biggest no-hander ever. This video collects all the best moments from last weekend, both the successes and the horrible, painful fails. It looks like a lot of fun, but as someone who split their chin open after a poor attempt at a wheelie (at the age of 27!), I probably should remain a spectator.

  • Watch Taiwan’s Red Bull Soapbox Race And Feel Bad For Not Being There (Video)

    Throughout the year, Red Bull holds numerous soapbox races all over the world. On September 29, the first one in Taiwan took place in the island’s capital, Taipei. Like most Red Bull events, the failures are the fun part. What can be more enjoyable than watching an outrageous car speed down a hill then flip over and crush its driver? Although, as a Mets fan, it was tough watching the Mr. Met looking character fail so badly (much like the baseball team).

  • Flying from Mt. Everest In The World’s Highest BASE Jump

    Nearly 60 years to the day after the first ascent up Mount Everest, Russian extreme sport star Valery Rozov flew off the north face of Mount Everest – the world’s highest BASE jump ever – 23,688ft above sea level. The ascent began on the Chinese side on the famous north route. It took him four days to climb from the base camp to the jumping location. At precisely 2:30 p.m. local time he leaped despite adverse weather conditions with temperatures -0.4 fahrenheit. Because the cliff at the top was not very high, the initial moments of the leap in the rarified high altitude air were the most critical phase. Rozov needed more time than usual in the thin air to transition from freefall to flying. After that he flew for nearly a full minute at speeds of about 200 km/h (125 mph) along the north face before he landed safely on the Rongbuk glacier – at an altitude of 5,950 meters.

  • Gee Atherton Talks Us Through the Anatomy of a Red Bull Rampage Crash

    Gee Atherton, a Red Bull mountain biker in the Rampage series, encountered one of the toughest crashes we’ve seen in years. The Rampage Series has been acclaimed for attracting some of the most bad-ass mountain bike athletes in the world, combining mountainous jumps, treacherous terrain and all the means for having a really bad day. “The crux of the line this year was in the mid-section, a big step-down we built that was definitely one of the biggest gaps I’ve ever hit and was definitely something that was really playing on my mind,” he said.”

  • 10 Traits From the Red Bull Stratos Jump You Can Apply to Your Job

    Chances are likely that your job doesn’t involve free-falling, setting a world record, wearing a space suit, risking your life or breaking the sound barrier. But in your line of work, Forbes tells us there are many similar traits you can share with Red Bull Stratos jumper Felix Baumgartner. You may just not have realized it yet.

  • In Case You Missed it, Red Bull Stratos Jump from space

    Felix Baumgartner achieved the the longest freefall from 24 miles above the earth yesterday. The video was watched by over 8 million people on the Red Bull Youtube page making it the largest watched live stream to date. The Sonic Baum hit speeds over 833 MPH and broke the sound barrier “It is hard to describe, because I didn’t feel it,” Baumgartner told reporters after the jump. “When you’re in a dead pressure suit [with no reference points] you don’t feel anything.” Because of rapid spinning, he fell 17 seconds short of the free fall record still held by his mentor, Joe Kittinger, who jumped from 19.6 miles up during the Excelsior II mission in 1960 and fell for 4 minutes and 36 seconds. Baumgartner also had some criticism to over come before the jump and post he noted “I’d like to give a special one finger salute to all the folks who said he was going to come apart when he went supersonic,” the former pilot joked to reporters after the jump, according to ABC News.    

  • Red Bull Stratos Freefall postponed

    On Tuesday, 10/9/12, Felix Baumgartner’s supersonic free fall from the edge of space was postponed due to 17 mph winds. Although much to the dismay of our entire office, it puts the small window of opportunity the technicians have to work with into perspective. Those winds aren’t exactly the twister cow flying winds we think of when we think of canceling a multi-million dollar jump, but we understand the severity of the jump. To think of all the trivial things you can accomplish in 17 mph winds, walk your dog, go for a jog, read a book on a bench, read an ipad on a bench, even play a round of golf (make sure you throw a few grass blades in the air to judge the direction of the pesky winds), but you can’t jump from the edge of space. So we’ll wait another day, Red Bull, we hope you get your wings soon.

  • How To Jump From 23 Miles Above Earth And Survive [18 HQ Photos]

    Come Tuesday, weather permitting, Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner will attempt to be the first person to break the sound barrier in free fall. The mission will take Felix 23 miles above Earth in a small space capsule. He will then step out of the capsule and plunge to Earth hoping to reach speeds that exceed 690 mph. The vessel is rigged with 15 cameras so that the entire Red-Bull sponsored event can be broadcast live online. It’s an unthinkably dangerous stunt that will test the limits of the human body in one of the most brutal environments: Air pressure is practically nonexistent and temperatures can sink to negative 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Our friends at BusinessInsider put together an interesting compilation to show you how the stunt will happen step by step.

  • 5 Ways Skydiving 120,000 Feet Can Kill You

    On Tuesday October 9th Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner will ascend more than 120,000 feet into the atmosphere inside a capsule attached to a helium balloon.

    As the sun rises over the New Mexico desert Monday morning, Felix Baumgartner will step into a space capsule suspended beneath an immense helium balloon and slowly ascend to the edge of the stratosphere, where he will step into the void and fall 23 miles to Earth. To do this safely, or, rather, as safely as possible, he will wear a pressurized suit designed to protect him from sub-zero temperatures, decompression sickness and the very real possibility that the liquid within his body could turn to gas, rendering him unconscious within seconds.

  • Red Bull F1 Car Tears Through NYC’s Lincoln Tunnel

    Former Formula One driver David Coulthard drives the Red Bull Racing Running Show Car through the 1.5 mile Lincoln Tunnel, which connects New York and New Jersey. Coulthard had loads of horsepower (and no gridlock) on his side, so he no doubt set the record for the fastest-ever commute through the tunnel. The Formula One team is in New York City this week with the high-revving demo car around the tristate area. Somewhere Vin Diesels ears are ringing. Next season the Grand Prix of America is expected to race through the streets of Weehawken, NJ, right across the Hudson River with NYC as a backdrop.

  • This 12-year-old Landed The First 1080 In The History of Skateboarding [Video]

    For years the holy grail of all skateboard tricks, the 1080, has eluded the biggest and most talented stars in skateboarding. While many have tried, it was never landed — that is until now. A Master of Physics would say that it make sense a young kid would be more likely to pull off a 1080 because the older you are the heavier you get so the more you have to try and defy gravity. Be that as it may 12-year-old Tom Schaar of Malibu, CA is well on his way to becoming a globetrotting skateboard legend like Tony Hawk.
