Kriss Kyle is one busy guy. With some huge Red Bull projects planned this year, a new BSD video on the way and a handful of new products dropping soon, he's got his work cut out. He managed to find some free time though and whipped together a fresh BSD Passenger V3 in Space Silver - get a closer look below along with a sneak peek at that prototype hub.

What are you most particular about on your bike? 

Probably the tyres as they need to be at the perfect psi for park and street. Which is around 65psi. Needs to be perfect!

Favourite new part? 

I reckon it would need to be the new Gorilla Grip OS system as they don’t slip at all. Even when they are brand new. It’s because the clamping surface has much more contact to grip. These bad boys can go through anything! 

Parts you go through the most? 

Has to be barends.

How often do you work on your bike, are you a bike maintenance type of guy? 

Not a chance, I only work on her if she needs it. I do like her running nice and smooth though, so I’ll get my hands dirty if she needs it.

Any prototype BSD products in the works? 

My new BSD Swerve hub which will be dropping later this year. I’ve been testing it for the past few months now and it’s working great. I'm excited for it to drop! I wanted something that was fast, loud and smooth. I’m in love with the sound of it. 

What have you been up to recently? 

Recently I’ve been planning my biggest Red Bull project ever, so I’m really excited about that. I've also been filming for a special BSD video these past few months, which will be dropping later this year. And a lot of other projects in the works. It’s shaping up to be an insane year!
