Stevie Churchill Eclat Fork Promo

“The new Éclat Stevie Fork was built with strength in mind. Made out of full liquid post heat-treated seamless 4130 crmo with fully CNCd steerer and butted fork blades, the Stevie Fork uses peg friendly invest cast dropouts and clearance for 2.40″ and larger tires.

Stevie wanted the fork to be available for all riders so we offer the fork in two offsets, 26mm for technical street riding and a more traditional 32mm for all round riding. Weighing in at 1028g (36.26oz) these forks are the perfect balance between strength and weight. Out now in Gloss Black, Chrome and Trans Green.”

Dima Prykhodko Skatepark Session

“Wethepeople AM rider and my very good friend Dima came over to malaga from frankfurt germany for escape the cold winter there so apart of beeing filming for a video we decided to do this little edit at a skater hand made spot where we usually warm up. His riding skills are better than my filming skills but we had fun filming this!”

Robb Bank$ – “2Phoneshawty” Video

I LISTENED TO YOUR MIXTAPE AND FELT LIKE I WAS GETTING PRANKED.

Excuse me, I just had to get that out there. If the Snapchats I receive on the OSS account are any indication, a lot of you reading this have gone crazy for Xavier Wulf and Bones this year. Well today we’ve got the visual for Robb Bank$’ “2Phoneshawty” which Bones shot the video for. Robb kills it, if you’re into this and haven’t yet caught wind of him, spend some time watching his other videos on YouTube, he’s been quietly killing it for years and all signs point to him having a big 2015.
