Soon after fulfilling a life-long dream to relocate to southern Utah, Tyler McCaul found himself riddled with injuries and unable to get out and enjoy the vast desert landscape he spent his entire career working towards calling home.


In Shimano's new film,Settle Your Soul", Tyler McCaul shares his experience through this process, from the highest peaks to the lowest valley. Things often looked grim when the lows dragged on for weeks, months, and well over a year as the recovery process seemed never-ending.


As he began to regain strength and mobility but still unable to venture out under his own strength, Tyler found solace in exploring his new backyard with a little assistance from his GT Force AMP e-bike.


After climbing out of the valley of recovery, Tyler realized that the e-bike became much more than a tool for overcoming injury; it became a cornerstone for everyday exploration and expanding what is possible by bike.
