[lol]whats the name of this ever so common mount?


#1

sorry’ dunno how to search for these kindo things.
It does transform almost trivially to other (named) mounts like 1.5 etc which to a degree eliminated the need for a name in most cases, but then there are tricks like laceration to asdfghjkl and double trapeze suicide to qwertyuio


#2

Look up kamikaze mount see if that’s it


#3

Looks like a kamikaze mount, not quite sure.


#4

I believe it is called Mach mount


#5

I don’t know if it is “Mach mount”, but since you can often get into it through a Mach Whip, I like that name. If that’s not its name already, I vote that’s what it should be. :wink:


#6

I learned it as a “Mach mount” from some tutorial on YouTube so that’s what I call it


#7

I wouldn’t call it a kamikaze mount just because kamikaze isn’t really the only trick that starts with it.


#8

It was originally called Kamikaze mount when Paul Escolar invented the trick, so it’s a Kamikaze mount. It’s basically a sideways Mach 5 and could be entered using a mach whip, which are why it is sometimes called Mach mount. Just call it Kamikaze Mount.

Cite your sources. :wink:

Referred to as a sidestyle Mach 5 in the original Sector-Y illustrations.
