After presenting to you the partnership Shape bicycles for the Vans Kill the line contest, we have produced a video about the making of the trophies. As with all Shape bicycles products, we like to follow the manufacturing process, this is why; through this video we’ll discover the machining of these trophies awarded the top 3 riders at Peynier during the first weekend of September.
The Vans Kill the line 2012 will be held at the Peynier trail during the first weekend of September; for the first time Shape bicycles is partner of the event. In fact we have worked closely with our rider Bérenger Cordier and his mate Alex Dropsy to design together the trophies for the event. Here some spy photos of these beautiful pieces of metal machining with our sprocket’s manufacturer.
The latest issue of French Soul BMX magazine has been available for a week. We are proud to see that the Shape bicycles riders took place in this summer issue. On the first hand, a report about a trail trip that Bérenger Cordier was on board (with Max Bimar and Justin Fouque), on the other hand Jared Ball has a sort of interview in the “Soil sample” section (wrote by Theodore Van Orman). Plus, this 76th issue comes with a video where you can watch our English rider Tom Bond who welcomed Bérenger and his mates at the PSA trail during their trip. As a bonus you will also find the Deluxe DVD – Part deux; as a result don’t hesitate and buy a copy of this issue !
15th and 16th of September, Shape bicycles organized a jam at the Run trail; located in northern Brittany. During this event, we’ll be able to meet some of the Shape bicycles riders (Bérenger Cordier and Bruno Abiven), and a booth to discover our products. About riding, all the weekend will be free session, composed of a couple of challenges (best trick, best line, wall ride, skid…) with many prizes to win! Below, find the flyer of the event as well as a video teaser.
We wanted to bring a bit of personality to each profile of our riders on the team page, this is why we asked to the Shape bicycles rider some questions. They had to answer them with their top 5 in term of BMX, countries, videos, websites… Take time to read their answers in order to learn more about their personal tastes.
After developing a couple of products in collaboration with our French riders, we are proud to present to you our last collaboration with our American rider – Jared Ball. In fact, Jared wanted to provide a new look at our top load stem with a split cap. This sort of American evolution enables to save barely twenty grams and give possibilities to mix colors like Jared with an anodized black stem and a polished signature split cap. Go to the product page for further information about this product; plus go to the Deluxe BMX website to have a look at the Jared’s bike check.
