Matthias said he’s a sporty kid in an interview, but he discovered BMX at 12 through a TV show.

He received his first bike that same year for Christmas, and everything went from there. Matthias also had a squad back then who were more or less fooling around, but soon things escalated.

World Championship wins, Nora Cup wins, and many incredibly successful videos – Matthias Dandois is the MAN.

4. Best Matthias Dandois BMX Flatland Videos

1. Vans – Music Box

I watched this one a few times before writing down any text. Why? Because it’s just TOO beautiful not to.

One of the things I really like is the use of chill music that’s not too loud, letting us enjoy the pure nature of Matthias’s incredible flatland riding and much more.

Even though I’m not a flatland rider and can barely do a hang 5, I still enjoy some really solid flatland footage.

Matthias teamed up with Alex Valentino to get this project out and it’s nothing short of a MASTERPIECE.

2. Time Machine + BTS

Matthias dropped this AWESOME “Time Machine” web video project he was working on in collaboration with Red Bull and Swatch.

They basically created a huge clock that’s at the same time a bowl with ledges and working hour and minute hands, “chasing” Matthias to make it more challenging.

And then they turned off the lights and had Dandois perform some really fantastic flatland riding. I particularly enjoy emphasizing the bike and riding sound more than the music.

You’ll also get plenty of behind-the-scenes clips when the video is done to see how his project came about. I don’t understand a word Matthias is saying, but I’m soon going to France, so a bit of getting-used-to-the-language comes in handy.

If you want to watch more insane Red Bull BMX projects, you better not miss my best Kriss Kyle video collection.

3. Haro La Bastille V2 Frame Promo

This new promo for Matthias’ signature Haro La Bastille V2 frame is – AS ALWAYS – a must-see. Flatland and street at their finest.

And there are a ton of different spots from a ton of different locations around the globe in this one.

So. Good.

Matthias is one of the dudes who enjoys traveling a lot, and combining it with BMX is pure bliss.

A very well done video filmed and edited by Pierre Blondel that you absolutely need in your life. There are even a few guest clips from Arnaud Malthieu!

Matthias always knows how to surprise with his creative riding, bringing pleasure to viewers.

4. Matthias flatlanding above Kitzbühel (WOW!)

This is dope. This is beautiful.

Red Bull is no stranger to putting together epic projects, and this new one with Matthias is at level eleven.

For this one, they flew Matthias to Kitzbühel, Tyrol, where he teamed up with Camo & Krooked and the Max Steiner Orchestra. What a combo.

You get a dose of everything, from the finished work and a ton of great behind-the-scenes, the challenges, and more.

All there’s left for you to do is to sit back, relax and enjoy the goodness.

5. Vans – Off The Grid

Here we have a Vans BMX Shoes video with Matthias Dandois called Off The Grid.

This one was released in August of 2021 and took place in a scenic parking lot where Matthias effortlessly does some of the most technical flatland riding you will ever see.

The way he moves the bike and himself around the bike could not be smoother or more perfect and it is always enjoyable to see.

The music for this one, combined with the mesmerizing flatland riding, makes for a video with an ethereal feel that will draw you in from beginning to end.

6. Haro web video (2018)

Matthias Dandois has been on top of the flat land game for as long as anyone can remember and with that he has also ridden for Haro for about the same amount of time.

Here is one from mid-2018 with Matthias riding street and flatland from Haro.

The video starts with a gnarly crash but quickly transitions into incredible connections between street and flatland.

The way Matthias can connect what seems like any flatland trick he wants with simple things like fakies out of grinds is amazing.

There are also a few bigger moves here, like a huge half cab over a bench and a gnarly drop.

7. Unlocked Down – A Midnight Cruise in Paris

This video came out in December of 2020 and was shot in November when the world was in a very crazy place.

The description describes the streets of Paris as quiet and empty as well as a perfect playground for BMX.

The video begins with an awesome transition from day to night and continues as Matthias rides by extremely recognizable locations in the city.

This video is beautifully shot and put together with a song that is hard not to enjoy.

Everything in this video comes together for an amazing watch from the b-roll, to the song, to the riding.

8. Odyssey 2011 edit

Here’s a quick one with Matthias Dandois from all the way back in 2011.

It is amazing to watch a video like this one from over 10 years ago and see how Matthias has progressed since then and how incredible he was back then.

The effortless linking of lines and combos is nothing short of amazing to watch and it is easy to see why Matthias has remained at the top of the flatland game ever since.

9. Red Bull – Street-Flat

Red Bull and Matthias Dandois have been somewhat synonymous with each other for quite some time in the BMX world.

The projects they have produced in conjunction with each other have been amazing throughout the years, including this video that goes back to mid-2012.

This may even be part of Matthias’ early success, with the name of this video being Dandois emerging BMX style: Street-Flat.

The title describes the video perfectly in the riding and as expected from Red Bull, the production value is over the top in quality.

After a very cinematic intro, Matthias combines a few different street-style obstacles with flatland. It is a cool video to reflect on now because it came out so long ago!

10. Secret Paris spots

Here we have a video with Matthias Dandois from Swatch called Secret Spots in mid-2021.

This video is much more than just riding and opens with Matthias introducing us to the idea of his secret spots in Paris, France.

There’s some insight into the different districts of France and some insight into Matthias’ riding mind.

There’s quite a lot of riding throughout here and some amazing videography showing different landmarks.

If you’re looking to get to know Matthias a little more, this is definitely a video you won’t want to miss!

11. Vans 2015 edit

It seems like Matthias Dandois has had the same sponsors forever as a BMX flatland rider.

This can only be good when you ride for companies like Red Bull and Vans.

When you have this kind of longevity as a rider, there is a lot to look back on. For example, here we have Matthias’ Vans video from 2015.

This video opens with a snapshot tour of his tattoo collection and is followed by a lot of awesome riding that one might consider conventional street BMX riding.

Following is what can only be described using a term from his previous videos: Street-Flat.

Matthias combines the two in a beautiful image of riding that is all his own.

12. Welcome to La Crèmerie

In 2014, this video welcomed Matthias Dandois to the La Crèmerie pro team. La Crèmerie is a BMX store out of Paris, France and this video came out way back in early 2014.

When it comes to the video itself, we first see a few very disheartening falls for Matthias.

These then transition a nice mix of the incredible flatland riding we know Matthias for along with some skatepark and street clips.

Matthias always puts on a display of amazing riding in this video that serves as a great chapter in his BMX story.

13. Matthias Dandois in Malaga

Here we have a quick video uploaded to the XtremeBMXride youtube channel with Matthias called Malaga.

This video came out in early 2014 and has a great mix of BMX street and flatland in signature Dandois fashion.

Matthias’s balance and pure skill for BMX is nothing short of incredible.

There are a few pretty burly gaps in here and the flatland riding that shows how well-rounded and talented Matthias is on his bike.

14. Haro web video (2016)

For as long as we can remember, Matthias Dandois has been on a Haro bike. Here we have a video with Matthias for Haro Bikes from late 2016.

The video starts with Matthias leaving his house and showing some beautiful scenery before seeing the always excellent street-flat style he has become so well known for.

At times, this video leans more heavily on the street side, with tricks like feeble grind to g-turn and big half cabs.

There’s also some burly riding in here, with a big gap over a rail.

The majority of the riding here from Matthias is flatland and as always, it is incredible and timeless!

15. Vans 2012 edit

Here we have Matthias Dandois’ Europe Team Edit from mid-2012.

The intro to this one is awesome, with some epic cinematic orchestral music paired with different wrecks and fails that come together to make a great beginning to this video.

Old videos like this are always awesome because they feel like chapters in the book of riding for whoever is in them and this one is no exception.

It’s amazing to see the level Matthias was at so long ago and to think about the fact that he has remained a mainstay in the flatland community.

The riding in this one is flawless as always as well and is also enjoyable to watch as always.
