Mountain Biking Terms-“Pin it!” and “Get some!”

In the last few years I’ve heard those terms said in mountain biking than any other sport or activity. My first encounter with them would be during some downhill races that our team participated it. If I recall correctly, Tony Finch says it all the time.

Now that you’ve been enlightened with new vocabulary terms, let me shed some light on the proper usage.

Pin it: This can be used when someone is going through a turn or berm. Pinning something to a wall means that item you just pinned sticks. When it’s used in riding, you’re telling the person to stick to the trail. Below is great example of Corey Pond “pinning it” on a berm.

Get some:This term can be used in two ways. 1. Is when someone jumps, you tell them to “get some”…air. Art Aguilar “getting some.”

  1. Dude, love your site, nice work! If I may I’d like to submit an alternative use of ‘pin it’ we have up here in New Hampshire. It’s in reference to ‘pinning the needle, like pinning the tach in your car. Maximum output, so to speak. And usually, when you pin it, you get some!
