Just a few months ago they BASE jumped off the world's tallest building, Dubai's 828m Burj Khalifa, and into the record books.

This time they're back with Red Bull Skycombo, a project that's more bold, more daring and even more spectacular. It's taken months of dreaming, planning and waiting for the perfect conditions to pull it off.

Check out the teaser on the #skycombo microsite!

But now we can report the epic flying feat of Frenchmen Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet. The Soul Flyers pair successfully jumped from 10,000m above Mt Blanc – the very limit of possibility without wearing pressurised suits.

Wearing a specially designed oxygen system, they stepped out into an air temperature of -50°C, performed some high-altitude freefall acrobatics before pulling specially designed chutes – much smaller – to allow them to swoop in close proximity over the Peuterey ridge, the longest ridge in the Mt Blanc massif. They landed safely in the Italian town of Courmayeur after a total flight time of 7 minutes.

We'll publish the full story, video and interview with the guys on June 18. For now, enjoy the teaser on the microsite of the project!
