March-Logo-Madness-2013-ChampionHere’s how it all broke down.

So, this is it

So, this is it, we’ve reached The Finals. Thousands of votes cast and we’re down to two logos. Both are icons in the industry. 90s upstart, Volcom with the Volcom Stone vs 60s originator, Vans’ and their “Off the Wall” Skateboard. Round 5 was another close one. Both Powell & Burton had the early lead, Vans overtook Burton midweek and Volcom had a late day surge on Friday to overtake Powell by a few votes. This one’s for all the marbles and the illustrious World Champion of the World / best logo in action sports title.

Valhalla x XFusion Shox Apparel

March 27, 2013  |  Bicycles, Check this out, Clothing, We Do Work  |  1 Comment

The little apparel line for XFusion Shox dropped a few days ago. I think you have to call to order them but they are available. The Ramones-inspired crest at the bottom is a patch (the round circle on the left chest of the hoodie next to it) and also available soon on some other products.

In addition to all the designs, we also came up with the ALL SIGNS POINT TO AWESOME tag line for them because, well, their products are awesome. Order some up by going to XFusion Shox & emailing / calling them or, better yet, but your bike shop to carry them!

Did you hear about Koston?

This is good. Nice way to integrate humor into the spot by snowballing the standard “did you hear” type gossip that happens when someone like Eric Koston does what he does at a spot. Nice work.

Ryan Sher curved wallride

Whether you’re into BMX or not, you have to admit that Subrosa’s Ryan Sher putting physics to work on this curved wallride down 16ish stairs is pretty rad.
