THE BEST Stunts

The Horizontal Skate Loop

The Horizontal Skate Loop

Legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk pulled off a crazy trick that seemed to defy gravity – as he zipped through a custom built obstacle that formed a horizontal loop. Of course, the attempt was not without a few painful failures.

Freestyle BMX athlete Kriss Kyle demonstrates his skills on a trippy indoor course formed from sharply contrasting ramps, moving platforms, and optical illusions galore. View the film on Red Bull’s website, then see how it was made here. YouTube mirror here.

Climbing the Eiffel Tower

Climbing the Eiffel Tower

James Kingston and a fellow free climber snuck up to the top platform of the Eiffel Tower. They ended up staying around 9 hours on the iconic structure, partly because they were spotted by security. They were eventually arrested but were let go without charges.

Car Surprise

Car Surprise

When we first saw how slowly this car was going around the racetrack, we figured that it had a mechanical problem. But it turns out it’s got much bigger issues than we could have ever imagined. (Thanks Robert!)

Polaris RZR XP1K3

Polaris RZR XP1K3

RJ Anderson takes the third version of UTVUnderground and Holz Racing’s souped up Polaris RZR XP Turbo through Ohio’s old steel mills, factories and train yards. The 1500lb. XP1K3 has a turbocharged 200hp engine, Walker Evans shocks and Holz’s invincible suspension.

Car Seesaw

Car Seesaw

A couple of tiny cars perform a stunt in which they balance on a fulcrum like a giant teeter-totter. We’re just impressed that the driver on the left didn’t back off the end of the ramp.

Powersliding an Airplane

Powersliding an Airplane

A single-engine plane comes in for a landing in the snow, then its pilot decides to hot dog a bit by drifting his plane through the white stuff like a car doing donuts in a parking lot. Once he’s had his fill, he proceeds to take back off again. Show off.

Nothing Front Bike Flip

Nothing Front Bike Flip

Just a couple of weeks after he blew our minds with the world’s first BMX triple front-flip, Nitro Circus’ whiz kid Ryan Williams is back with another intense feat, pulling off a trick that used to be performed only with scooters.

BMX Triple Front-Flip

BMX Triple Front-Flip

It wasn’t that long ago that we saw BMX rider Ryan Williams pull off an awe-inspiring single front-flip on his bike, and now he’s bested that by 3x, with an epic triple version of the same stunt – though not without some worthy competition and numerous spills along the way.

On the Roofs: Two Spires

On the Roofs: Two Spires

The crazy free-climbing duo On the Roofs shared their latest video – a view from the very top of the 1,094ft. Shimao International Plaza in Shanghai, China. We nearly peed ourselves when they got to the lightning rod.

Amazing Wingsuit Cameraman

Amazing Wingsuit Cameraman

Extreme athlete Graham Dickinson shared his recent wingsuit flight from France’s Le Brévent mountain not to show off, but to point out the skill of his buddy Dario Zanon, who shot this video and kept up with Graham the whole way.

Cat: Tug of War

Cat: Tug of War

For their latest Built For It Trials video, Cat pitted Hafthor “Thor” Bjornsson (aka “The Mountain” from Game of Thrones) against their D10T Dozer in the ultimate tug of war. Will Europe’s strongest man be defeated by his 77-ton nemesis and frigid Icelandic climate?

Lolo Jones Goes Airborne

Lolo Jones Goes Airborne

Track star Lolo Jones is used to speed – jumping over hurdles, not doing barrel rolls. Red Bull dropped Lolo into a plane with stunt pilot Kirby Chambliss to see how she’d take to the skies. Lolo’s reactions are priceless, but Kirby’s calm demeanor is even more astounding.

Slackline Biking

Slackline Biking

Trials rider Kenny Belaey demonstrates his incredible balance as he makes his way to the top of a rock, and then proceeds to ride his bike across a slackline over a 367 foot drop, all the while facing the challenges of the ~8900 foot altitude. Thank god for safety gear.

Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle 4

Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle 4

(PG-13 Language) It’s been a while since ICON Motorsports tore up the roads for our enjoyment. ICON riders Ernie and Nick find themselves stuck in a rut, until Officer Dan sends them on a mission to get them back up on their mighty steeds. (Thanks Matt!)

Burnouts, Stunts, and Sh*t

Burnouts, Stunts, and Sh*t

Finland’s StuntFreaksTeam tears up dirt, dust and gravel as they perform burnouts, spins, wheelies, and more on their motorcycles. If that weren’t enough, there’s a drift car that wants in on the action too.

F-PACE Loop de Loop

F-PACE Loop de Loop

Jaguar gave their all new F-PACE sports crossover the most dramatic entrance possible, sending it and stunt driver Terry Grant through a massive loop measuring a record-breaking 62.6 feet tall, and exerting nearly 6.5G along the way.

Insane Zipline BASE Jump

Insane Zipline BASE Jump

A basejumper takes the most harrowing route to his jump-off point as he slides down a treacherous stretch of cable that nearly takes his fingers off as he picks up speed. Might we suggest a pair of gloves? And jump from some place safe, like the top of a skyscraper.

200-foot Bike Plunge

200-foot Bike Plunge

We honestly have no idea what insanity was going through the mind of bicyclist Primož Ravnik as he set off straight down a 200-foot-tall dam without a jump ramp. The only thing between him and a certain demise was a small pool of water at the bottom.

Indestructible Volvo

Indestructible Volvo

Some backyard daredevils decided to put to the test the long-held belief that Volvos are some of the safest and most durable cars on the road. Their demolition derby approach is extreme, but the result is unquestionable. This ’94 Volvo 850 appears to be unkillable.

Drew Bezanson’s Uncontainable

Drew Bezanson’s Uncontainable

Red Bull BMX rider Drew Bezanson teamed up with professional ramp builders to make a couple of crazy ramps using shipping containers – one of the familiar sights in Drew’s hometown of Truro, Nova Scotia.

An impressive takedown by Trevor Logan as he dispenses of fellow stuntman Daniel Locicero using gymnastics and the power of his legs, courtesy of a move choreographed by stunt coordinator Arnold Chon. One more time here.

Laso Schaller Cliff Jump POV

Laso Schaller Cliff Jump POV

Canyoning expert Laso Schaller set a world record for a cliff jump when he leapt off a ~194ft. high cliff in Switzerland. His target landing area was aerated for safety, but he actually missed that spot. Thankfully he came out okay.

Freerunning Illusions

Freerunning Illusions

Red Bull freerunners Jason Paul and Pasha Petkuns combined their athleticism with a variety of optical illusions, camera tricks and an upside down house to make this fun stunt video. Behind the scenes here.

Spencer Seabrooke set a new record for slacklining without any leash (or any balancing or safety equipment for that matter). He walked across a ~210ft. gap from ~950ft. high. Zachary Moxley recorded the feat with his drone.
