i think these ads are smart.
they show the bikes overcoming challenging terrains, but making the terrains your physical fitness puts a lifestyle spin in there that sets up a personality for the brand.

mountain biking people love biking on mountains.
but by the visual logic of above,
losing fat=less curves=less mountain=less fun.
So, eat cheeseburgers before you ride your spw bike?

More like "keep riding so you don't end up flat on the floor like that fat bastard"

This is a Bike Defender Association warning.
Don't allow that woman to put her overflowing back on a bicycle saddle. She's allowed to do anything but biking.

Maybe this is too literal but I would have liked to have seen the person/bike at the top of the "hill". I think that would make it a quicker read and really express that exercise has allowed them to overcome this obstacle. Great, provocative visual though.

The more I think about it, I think I'm wrong. I think you do need to active "push" that is present in the current visuals.
