The Helmet Article

by jpr • 02/03/2014

"That is where freedom comes in to play. Bmx is a sport that most of us got into because of the freedom a bicycle can give us. There is hardly any better feeling, to me at least, than just cruising down the street, being free, and having no person to tell you what you can or cannot do. With that said, no person can tell you to wear or not to wear your helmet. You as a rider must decide to wear one. If you are confident in your abilities and you believe wearing a helmet is not for you, then by all means, don’t wear one. However, like Mike Aitken once said, 'It only takes once.'" Read the full article at All It Is.

VANS BMX - Harry Main - Welcome to the Team

by Aggro_Gator • 01/31/2014

“This past July I went on a trip to Berlin, Germany with Jeff K, Mike Hinkens, Grant Castelluzzo, Rob Diquattro, Tyler Rembold, and Erik Elstran. We rented an apartment for the whole month and spent the time riding around the city and some other areas. There was a handful of other guys who came out to stay at the apartment for parts of the month too. Enjoy the photos.” - Nick Steben via Dig BMX

"Another new addition to the already STACKED Shadow Pro Team comes way of French shredder and über nice guy Joris Coulomb. Joris first came to our attention during the original Bakery contest in Chicago, IL where his insane tire riding skills and incredible personality were on display. From that day on, Joris has rocked the Shadow name and pushed himself as a rider and a friend to the utmost level. We couldn’t be more proud to have him a part of our family and as a part of our Pro Team. Congrats Joco, you deserve it!" via Shadow
