The Nowear compound’s indoor park is coming together quite nicely. They recently completed the step up and had a full crew out to give it a proper test. This park has been a few years in the making and was made to be an entirely free indoor park for riders all over to enjoy. Hit play to check out what went down on the new setup!
There have been countless BMX jams and events cancelled this year due to COVID-19, but the Nowear crew are keeping their annual Cornhuckit Jam going! This year the jam is scheduled for September 19th and it sounds like they plan to do an awesome event this year, with a few added precautions to ensure everyone stays safe. Check out a few words from Karl Hinkley below…
“We will be respecting and staying within guidelines put in place by our governor in the state of Nebraska. There will be sanitizing stations, outdoor wash station, signs, distancing and 6 acres to help keep spread out.
Proceeds from our jam will go towards phase 2 of our free indoor BMX Park. We recently finished our park portion and now are working towards the indoor pump track.”
If you’re looking for an interesting podcast to listen to, here’s a new one that popped up called the Off Camber Podcast. This first episode we’ve seen is an interview with Nowear BMX owner, Karl Hinkley, discussing the new indoor park they built that’s free for anyone to use, the brand and products and more. Karl is 110% BMX all the time and has put in sooooo much work over the years to keep the party going. This is definitely worth a look!
“In this podcast, we talk with Karl Hinkley, owner of Nowear BMX and Nowear Nonprofit. He has built a FREE indoor skatepark for any rider to visit. He also talks about how his business started, his unique frames, and working on ramps with his son.” – ACE Bike Media
Although everyone is pretty much on lockdown these days, that hasn’t kept Karl Hinkley from riding since his property is just a big BMX playground! Hit play to check out a bunch of rad clips he’s been filming during his solo sessions inside the new Nowear indoor park! As always, Karl brings a super good mix of tricks with plenty of creativity that you aren’t seeing from other riders. Hit play and check this out!
“The Nowear Compound hopes everyone is staying healthy and safe.
During the Quarantine and social solitude owner Karl Hinkley has been burning the midnight oil to finish the first phase of Nowear’s free indoor park project.

As some of you know, the Nowear BMX crew out in Nebraska have been putting in a ton of work to build out a completely free for all indoor skatepark to ride. They’ve been doing some fundraisers over the course of the past few years and they’re getting super close to having the place all dialed in. They’ve been doing contests every summer and this year they have two in the works that will also double as a fundraiser for the park. Get full details on what’s in the works below!
“We are doing great at The Nowear Compound and are excited for what’s all in store for this year.
Our free indoor bike park project is going amazing and expect to have the park portion of the indoor done before this July.
We will then proceed to raise funds to finish the pump track room and final details.
We are hosting 2 big events this year with proceeds going towards our Nonprofit.
First event is July 18th Nebraska’s Cornhusker State Games and Nowear hosts the BMX freestyle contest at The Compound. The CSG organization provides us with EMT staff, porta potties and medals for all those who place. We are looking for additional sponsors to donate prizes to this event. This will be our first contest in the new indoor park.
There are 7 different classes at the event and 3 place per class.
Second event is our 7th annual Cornhuckit Jam Sept 19th. We will be promoting this event more than ever to raise maximum funds for our indoor project. If we are successful in doing so we should be able to finish our entire indoor pump track and all by the end of 2020. We will have live music throughout the day, camping available, food and product vendors, mini bmx comps and all weekend open riding. We are asking for any and all help with product and prizes for this event.
We will host a minimum of 4-5 mini events and give plaques and prizes to as many riders as possibly who do well for their own levels
Nowear will show appreciation by hanging up any banners that are sent, paint logos of company sponsors on our outdoor ramps that will remain there throughout the year and of coarse do lots of shout outs and thank you’s on our social media platforms.
NOTE: BMX companies who help with either events are welcome to set up a booth and sell product at no charge.
Fliers are being made currently for the events. When the artists have finished we will begin to add sponsor logos so please send us yours in an email so we can add them.
Thank you everyone for your consideration in helping Nowear continue to grow and help both riders and the local youth.

As some of you might have heard, the Nowear crew out in Nebraska have been busting their asses to build an indoor skatepark that is completely free for riders to enjoy. They’ve been operating as a Non-Profit organization and putting everything they get from donations to sales into this dialed new building. They have the structure up and now they’re starting to build out the ramps. For Christmas this year, they unveiled the foam pit and a bunch of riders came out to give it a test and learn some new tricks. It sounds like at least 6 kids have learned how to send a backflip because of it, so that’s pretty rad. Here’s a video showing some of the riding that went down. We would imagine we’ll be seeing plenty more ramps popping up inside the building soon!

Adam Banton is giving the Nowear Beast Mode setup a go! Here’s a new video bike check where Adam talks a little bit about the frame and gives you a run through of all the Odyssey parts, along with a few riding clips for good measure! Check out this unique setup!
“After leaving my previous long time frame Sponsor, it was refreshing to build up a bike like the NoWear “Beast Mode” frame. Super responsive and a few degrees left of normal. I surprised myself getting used to such a strange looking freestyle machine, or maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise!“
The 6th annual Cornhuckit Jam went down at the Nowear compound the other weekend, and it was another big success. As expected, there was a big turn out of riders from all over, no shortage of amazing riding and the weather looked to be on point, too! Here’s a look at all of the riding, good times and more that went down from the dirt jumps to the ramps and even a flatland session in the new building that will eventually house the new indoor skatepark that Nowear have been putting a ton of work in to make happen.
“Highlights from the 6th annual Cornhuckit jam in Unadilla NE.
This years jam was nothing short of amazing!
A weekend filled with BMX, local food and live music.
Huge thank you to everyone that made this event possible.
The focus of “Cornhuckit” this year was to raise funds for “The Nowear Compound Nonprofit Corporation” and it’s mission to build a free indoor BMX training park open to any and all.
We succeeded with flying colors! Over $5k raised from the day.
Our biggest addition to the 2019 jam and the Compound was “Dean’s Drop”
This is a feature that will remain at the compound indefinitely. A semi drop with an adjustable wedge system that allows both intermediate level riders to go big like the pros. Dedicated to a dear friend who recently passed “Dean Busch”. Dean was well known and admired in the race industry and also enjoyed all types of of riding. Dean was the rider that jumped anything and everything. He would always take the time to help any kid or rider learn how to jump or go big.
Dean will be forever loved and missed. We invite any rider to stop by and experience “Dean’s Drop” in honor of his memory.
Anyone Interested in stopping by on your travels and riding at the compound? Simply message Karl through Nowear’s website nowearbmx.com or any of our social media platforms.
