There's not a lot of riders out there who can say they've been with the same frame sponsor for 17 years, but that's exactly what Alex Valentino has done with his family at United. To celebrate the release of his new signature AUTOPORTRAIT frame, Alex and Arnaud Wolff have created this 30 minute visual masterpiece with glimpses at Alex's past, where he's at now, and of course some incredible riding from himself, and United teammates Jo Gass and Tom Deville.

Alex Valentino's new Signature Auto Portrait Frame is finally here! The Auto Portrait features some similarities with our Incarnate V2 frame, like a solid tubeset throughout, invest cast dropouts with built in chain tensioners, and our ultra slim invest cast wishbone, but this frame also features a seatstay wishbone to further strengthen the rear triangle. This double wishbone design sets the Auto Portrait Frame aside from anything else in our line up, and yet fits in perfectly.
Coming in 3 colours, Blue, Pale Grey, and Raw, the headtube graphics for this frame have also been painted by Alex Valentino himself, further adding to the name.

STILL UNITED 2016 "Our penultimate online premiere of the insanely good 'Still United' just went live and this time it's DVD cover boy Alex Valentino. Alex's level of determination for his section was admiring to see - just one example of this is his first clip when he shreds all the skin off his palms. Well, 48 hours later he was 180 barspinning the 'El Cap' statue with his hands all bandaged up - now that's how you do it. Enjoy Alex Valentino's best from two years of filming, all tied up like a charm via the mind of Peter Adam. And that ender too, don't miss it! "
Alex Valentino is a bad ass human being. It was awesome to watch him go in so hard for his Still United section (especially barspinning the Barca wedge with severe meat paw) and all with that classic French vavavoom. Enjoy his extra clips and behind-the-scenes in the latest episode of the Still United Files.
