So I was on instagram and I came across a post from bmx1news and it had me thinking.. HOW THE HELL DOES SOMEONE RIP A SEAT LIKE THAT?! I've never even heard of people breaking seats at all before this. Someone please enlighten me on how tf this kind of thing goes down.

I've seen it a few times, either a hard landing on the butt (which I can imagine sucks a lot) or by the bike being thrown or falling after an attempt.

I forgot where I saw it, but a long time ago there was this clip of a dude trying to double peg this rail that began on the top of a stairwell and stayed at the same level parallel to the ground the whole stair set. It was maybe a 10 or 15 stair. He jumped off at the end and his bike landed seat first upside-down and severed it just like this photo here.

If you land sitting down often, you can quite quickly and easily crack a pivotal base. Only takes one bad landing to snap any part though.

I fucked up a no footed can and snapped my old seat, but it didn't tear cause it was kevlar which is usually stronger I think. If it were leather or vinyl I bet it'd have ripped just as the one in the photo had

Got an update.
Apparently he snapped it on a grind that went wrong.

Saw it happen to someone who had his seat slammed and kept stepping on the seat during tailwhip tricks.

In Chad Kerleys / Theotis Beasleys split edit you can see Chad do a hop whip and kinda slips a pedal , and his ass hits the seat and you can see it cracked . Shit happens , it isn't too common .

Slip your pedals and ball ride out from high up.

what did the seat post look like? And how did you manage to get the cranks around twice? Sounds crazy

One of my friends snapped his seat post and seat messing around trying to flip into foam. Guess his gooch took the blunt of it
