Supporting Trails. Supporting Communities. At Stan's, we believe real support means more than just supporting our products. It means supporting the people who use those products, and the trails and causes that matter to them. As part of this commitment, we've launched our Connection program, a way for us to donate to the causes that keep you riding.

We'll also be featuring riding communities and the people involved in supporting their local trail networks and the riders through the "Intersections" short film series by Brice Shirbach and other film and video features, we'll be taking a closer look at riding communities and causes, and the people who make them possible.

The Gunnison Valley has deep roots within the mountain bike community, going back 4 decades to the birth of the sport itself. Over the years, it has worked its way to the very top of many a rider’s bucket list and for good reason: it offers up hundreds of miles of singletrack utilizing terrain that ranges from the stark, high desert landscape around the community of Gunnison to the pristine, high alpine trails that surround Crested Butte. The valley is bookended by these two communities and together they’re at the forefront of trail advocacy and stewardship and are paving the way for other organizations to follow suit.
