There’s no denying that BMX has an unlimited supply of creativity and originality coming from riders all around the world and that’s undoubtably one of the best things it has going for it. When it comes to actual BMX products, we see trends come and go and times where we’ll see a lot of creativity followed up a lot of clones trying to replicate the original ideas that worked. The Shadow Conspiracy have always tried to stick to the creative and original route whether it’s creating new products or improving on existing designs. Although the Penumbra seat has been apart of the the Shadow Conspiracy product line for a couple of years now, it’s still constantly changing and evolving with the creativity of their team and materials. With Shadow’s new 2015 signature series seats becoming available, we figured it would be a great time to take a closer look at what Simone Barraco, Scott Ditchburn, Albert Mercado, Ben Hucke and Drew Bezanson cooked up for their own spin on the seat this time around. Let’s take a look!
If you have been following Ben Hucke on Instagram, you probably have seen some of the amazing drawings he has been doing lately. Today Ben hit us with some news that he will be selling prints of this Rickey Bates portrait that he did with full proceeds going to the Rickey Bates Memorial non-profit organization! You can pick one of these for $20 RIGHT HERE! Get on this one for sure! Rest in Peace, Rickey! We all miss you!
