Eclat – Shane Weston 2015

It’s not all too often that we’re treated to a new BMX video from Shane Weston, but when we are… It’s always damn good. Check out his latest video for Eclat where he puts his super technical and unpredictable freecoaster skills to work. Despite having a really chill vibe due to the music and editing, the riding in this is pretty nuts. Absolute must see for sure!

Shane has been working on this video for a few months, he’s been packing in the hours and burning off the anger to bring you what is undoubtedly his most mind blowing of all edits. His progression is off the scale.

Insight: Props Collectors Edition Box Set


There’s no denying that it’s pretty incredible the way technology is progressing these days. When you look back 20 years, a lot of the things you utilize today didn’t exist or it was in very early stages of what it has become today. When it comes to BMX videos, we’ve seen videos go from VHS to DVD to Digital and cameras go from rough and choppy to crystal clear High Definition footage that you can see even the smallest details at 120 frames per second. Thanks to technology we can take all these kinds of footage and cram them into single Blu-Ray disc’s that hold hundreds of hours of footage on them.
The other day, we received a very small package from Chris Rye from Props. Inside, we found a copy of the brand new Collectors Edition Box Set that holds over 20 years of footage on five of those Blu Ray discs that is now available… Let’s talk about this.

Red Bull – Kaleidoscope featuring Kriss Kyle

Wow, we’re completely blown away by Kriss Kyle‘s new Kaleidoscope BMX video from Red Bull! This is so much more than we could have ever imagined. Everything from the insanely amazing and creative setup to the riding and film work. You can watch the full BMX video above… Over and over again. It is one of those videos that takes more than one watch to really process everything going on from the moving ramps to the setups you have to see Kriss ride before they make sense. You can check out more about the video by visiting the Red Bull website — KALEIDOSCOPE!

You can watch a Behind The Scenes video to see how this was done here: BTS of Kaleidoscope: The Setup – Part 1

Raise the Bar: A Look At BMX Bars


If you have been around BMX long enough, you have seen trends come and go, things get bigger, then smaller, then bigger again. At the end of the day, BMX has been working to find the perfect size that ultimately makes riding a BMX bike feel better and ride better. There’s been A LOT of trial and error over the years and we’ve seen things go from really rough and unreliable to very detailed and dialed. There’s a lot more that goes into developing a new product than drawing something up on a napkin and hoping it works… Which has happened in BMX’s fairly short existence more than once. I personally have been riding BMX for somewhere around 17 years.. You kind of lose track after a while, but it’s somewhere around there. In that time, there’s been A LOT of changes from every aspect of what makes a BMX bike. Products are very refined and it seems like we see new products with only small changes in degrees and millimeters these days that can make all the difference in how a bike can ride and in general feel, which is pretty amazing. One thing in particular that we’ve seen change A LOT over the years are handlebars. When looking at other parts of a BMX bike, it’s safe to say that bars have grown in size the most in comparison to where it was when I first picked up a bike… Let’s talk about this a little bit.
