After a hectic summer of roadtrips, restrictions, events and more; we got a crew together in one of the top places to do it, and hit the streets for a few days with nothing in mind but vibing and having fun on our bikes! This is a BMX Vacation with Nathan Williams, Hobie Doan, Ben Basford, Jayden Mucha, Santi Laverde and Anahi Valentina.
Riders like Santi Laverde are a rarity these days; with the ability and versatility to literally ride whatever is in front of him. From huge jumps, to cuts in the street... Santi can deliver top notch BMX riding that has you immediately wanting more.
Kick back, relax, and take in a classic road trip with the crew. New territory for most the squad, with not a ton of pre-planning and a lot of high hopes! Billings to Boise delivered all the hidden gems we were looking for. This one takes you deeper into the road trip than usual...enjoy!
When two of our best AMs, Harrison Arcari and Lorenzo Mesa go to Woodward for the Summer to hold it down, you know they are going to come away with some fire from camp! Shoutout to Chase Pauza for all the help this past summer and making Woodward East a great time for BMX riders.
We are proud to welcome our good friend Santi Laverde to the Kink BMX AM Team! Santi hails from Colombia and is currently living in Barcelona, Spain. He was fortunate enough to meet up with Rich Forne and Guille Lyon to stack some recent clips from South America to Spain, crushing it on the new build. Stay tuned for a lot more from Kink and Santi in the near future!
The Contender II Frame features two new colorways, all new graphics, and a couple updates to the frame as well. A longer 5” headtube means no more headset spacers to mess with, and a higher bottom bracket height for better clearance on grinds. Watch Dan Coller put the second coming of his Signature Contender Frame to work!
