With over 3100 active torrents, ExtremeBits has one of the largest sports torrent indexes currently around. It tracks a lot of video clips, TV shows, DVDs, magazines,etc related to extreme sports events. In addition to these, you can also find sports related movies, DVD covers, soundtracks and even graffiti here on ExtremeBits. Popular extreme/action sports featured on this tracker including Skateboarding, Skiing, Rally, Surfing, Kayaking, Climbing and Street Racing (See categories below for more info).
As mentioned above ExtremeBits has a clean layout which comes complete with cool category icons. The interface also allows easy one click rating of indexed torrents via the voting option (available to power users and above). Torrents can also be sorted according to the ‘hype factor’.
