New year, new build! Matt Coplon kicked off 2021 right with a little refresh of his setup! There’s a new Bike Check with Matt up on the PROFILE RACING WEBSITE taking a closer look at his current Deco setup with Profile, FBM and Demolition Parts. You can check out a bunch of photos and a quick parts list with each photo right here. This looks like a dialed unit to us!
Thinking about running some shorter cranks? Profile Racing caught up with Matt Coplon to find out why he runs 160mm cranks and some of the advantages. Hit play to get the details, along with some fresh riding clips from Matt for good measure!
“When we were asked what our favorite Profile components were and why by QBMX,
We decided to answer with a quick video explanation.
Here’s the first in several videos posting to answer that question.
Our sales and freestyle TM, Matt Coplon is up first covering his Profile, 160mm 19mm No-Boss Cranks.” – Profile Racing
Do you run a Madera or Profile Racing hub in the back? If you’re looking for a drive side hub guard, Madera have released their C4 drive side guard that utilizes a proprietary insert that replaces the jam nut on your axle to allow your guard to snap right into place. Hit play to let Matt Coplon tell you all about it, along with a detailed look at the guard and how it’s installed!
“Custom-made for both Madera and Profile Hubs, the C4 Drive Side Guard is designed to protect your hubs, keep you grinding smoothly, and all with only minimal weight.
It is sold as a combo including the guard and proprietary hardware that will fit on the Madera V2 Cassette, the Madera Gulf Coaster, the Profile Racing Mini Hub, and the Profile Racing Z-Coaster.
Buy the combo pack to start and replace the guard on its own later if necessary.
You must have the proprietary hardware that is installed with an adjustable wrench in order to run this guard.
Make sure to check out all of the other guards we make, including our C4 Plastic FRONT Guard and our C4 Plastic Non-Drive Side REAR Guard to match this guard below.”
It’s pretty easy to catch a video from Southern California, Barcelona, Spain or one of the many other heavily populated locations that BMX riders tend to flock to, but there are also a ton of great places that don’t get explored nearly as often. Recently, some of the Profile Racing crew spent some time cruising the street spots, parks and ditches around Tulsa, Oklahoma. During their stay, plenty of clips were stacked and good times were had. Hit play and take it all in and think about some of the less common places you could go for some riding!
““For this second installment of Profile’s neighborhood Crawl, we brought Shane and Dillon Leeper as well as Billy Woodfin to Tulsa in the Spring of 2019.
While avoiding the impending, seriously oppressive summer, we used my wife’s house as a homebase, and explored the innards and outards of T-Town for a total of 5 days.
Here’s the fruits of our fun…We hope you enjoy.” – Matt Coplon/Profile
Thanks to Russell Wadlin, Aaron Anderson, and especially Kyle Kisling, for continuing to make Tulsa one of the most enjoyable cities to travel to.

It’s always a good day when Matt Coplon‘s name pops up with a new video! It was Matt’s 42nd birthday the other day, and that meant it was time or his annual edit to drop! Hit play to check out a bunch of dialed clips he filmed over the course of the past year from trips he has taken and some of his local spots down in Florida! As always, Matt delivers a good mix of tricks with plenty of creative and unique clips keeping things interesting from start to finish!
“Ever thought about filming a section once a year after you turn 40?
Matt Coplon, longtime TM/ rider/ wearer of many hats at Profile, celebrated moving up to Level 4.2 by putting together another collection of clips captured over the last year or so (this is his third such edit since he hit level 4). The last line at the infamous Buena Vista pool is classic. Long may these parts continue!” – DIG
“Celebrating the daily motivation I still feel upon turning 42; here’s a collection of clips captured during sessions after work and in the downtime between filming with the Profile crew while on the road.
Thanks to Profile Racing.
Thanks to Eric “Easy” Fabrisiak, Steve Caro, Dillon Leeper, Bobby Proctor, Jeff Maurer, Chad Degroot, Luis Pinzon, Chris Childs, Eric Holladay, and Kyle Kisling for motivation and assistance with filming.
Thanks for watching, I hope you enjoy.
See you on the road…” – Matt Coplon

Matt Coplon was sick of his current setup getting beat up from all of the travel he does, so he decided to build up a second bike specific for traveling. There is a brand new Bike Check up on the Profile Racing website giving you a closer look at his current setup with plenty of photos and a list of parts! As always, Matt keeps one very dialed machine, so go check it out right here!
FBM re-upped a video from the latest FBM / Profile Racing / QBMX Maiden America tour where the crew spent some time out in the Santa Cruz, California area cruising and having a good time. Hit play for footage from the pool, trails and street sessions. Looks like these guys had a blast!
“The FBM Crew out in the wild- The fifth annual Maiden America tour came through NorCal recently, featuring FBM, Profile, and QBP. We caught up with the dudes for two days in the Santa Cruz area, where we sessioned the famous Buena Vista pool, the Harvey West pump track, and sick street spots around a light house! The squad included Steve Crandall, Declan Murray, Garrett Guilliams, Shane Leeper, Dillon Leeper, Eric Holladay, Matt Coplon, Jay Schlie, and local Santa Cruz FBM riders John Tillman and Jackson Allen.” – FBM
At the start of the year, some of the Profile Racing team got together down in Florida to spend some time cruising the endless street, DIY spots, backyard pools, ditches and skateparks the state has to offer. Here’s a look at the riding that went down during the trip! This has a super good mix of styles and tricks, keeping things interesting from start to finish! This trip looks like it was a ton of fun. Take a look!
“If you’re looking for something a little bit different in your BMX entertainment search today then this is it. Profile’s Cory Foust, Mark Mulville, Luis Pinzon, Bobby Proctor, Chad Degroot and Chris Childs get busy in Tampa with some creative riding and some down right sick looking spots.
“In January of 2019, we flew part of the Profile crew to Tampa and made Seminole Heights our home base for a week. This is what we enjoyed together…we hope at some point you will come for a visit to experience it yourself.” – Matt Coplon
