Nitro’s full team movie Hyped! has dropped online for free streaming and as we predicted after watching the teaser and full ‘Austria’ part from the movie, the whole thing is an absolute joy to watch. Yes, it’s one of the biggest cliches in the book when it comes to action sports but ‘fun’ really is the best way to describe this movie. We’re gonna put it out there: if this doesn’t make you want to go riding you’re either a grumpy bastard or a robot.
As Nitro team manager Knut Eliassen explains at the start of the movie, this is the Nitro team riding how they want to ride, rather than trying to stomp the biggest spin over the biggest jump or doing certain tricks just because people want to see them. The intro and final section of this are perhaps the highlights for us, with just a bunch of guys dicking around in a slushy park. It almost has a modern day Robot Food vibe to it which is pretty hard to come by these days. We think Nitro have totally nailed it with this one and Hyped! is definitely up there as one of our favourite full movies that we’ve seen so far this winter.
Hyped! features the riding of Bryan Fox, Austin Smith, Markus Keller, Eero Ettala, Marc Swoboda, Benny Urban, Dominik Wagner, Knut Eliassen, Sam Taxwood, Sage Kotsenburg, Nils Arvidsson, Elias Elhardt, Anton Bilare, Anton Gunnarson, Jon Kooley, Justin Bennee, Torgeir Bergrem and more.
