Trent McDaniel had just made his move from Chicago to Los Angeles and within only a few days we were on a road trip to the Bay Area to start filming this split edit for DIG with Division team mate and Cali native, Wolfgang Ray. We spent a solid ten days up there before returning to SoCal for the spot search to continue. Production slowed down a little due to Trent incurring and injury and Wolfgang working non stop during the holidays, but as the New Year rolled in everything came together.
Later this month, for a great cause…
If you’re in Australia you are fortunate enough to score these 2 brand new products that have just landed (The sprocket will be landing elsewhere in a few months). First up we have the colab seat with FocalpointBMX featuring the raised embroidered FP logo, matching stitching and the rear bumper Division Brand logo. These are limited so get in quick.
Next we have the Vitara Guard sprocket which seem to get a lot of great feedback from everyone when we posted the sample online last year. The samples went great so now we have them in stock.
Rex uploaded his section from the Perth Mixtape. Some great spot use throughout this part and the last few clips get super heavy…
From all of us here at DVSN, we just want to thank everyone that has supported us over the year. From riders buying the product, the team dudes, shops, distributors and the media outlets it’s all greatly appreciated! Bring on another year of good times. Thanks…Cooper
Our friends at Vans are putting on one hell of an event in March 2017…
