Here’s some news we’ve been waiting for since Matt Coplon said they would be doing a limited run in his latest video bike check! Well, it’s time and his custom Profile Racing Mini Hubs with the “cat’s eye” cutouts have finally been made available in a limited production run for a few lucky riders to get! Here’s a quick video showing the hubs being made, along with a few riding clips from Matt for good measure to celebrate. Check out more details below! Act fast if you’re trying to get a pair of these!
“Three years ago, Dave Fisher, Profile’s head machinist, gifted a pair of these one-off, drilled out, Profile Mini Hubs to our long time freestyle team manager, Matt Coplon.
For the summer of 2022, we’ve decided to make a small. Ltd. Edition run of what has become Profile’s “Cat’s Eye” Hubs, available to the public.
The “Cat’s Eye” Hubs have the same internals and hardware options as our Mini Hubs.
Available in Polished only.
RHD, with a very limited number available in LHD.
In this edit, Matt walks you through the process of manufacturing, de-burring, and hand polishing each hub shell.

Florida’s sunny weather means riding all year round, but it also means kitten season never ends, resulting in a high number of free roaming cats that need our help.
A humane way to manage the population is TNVR — Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate, Release.
To support what Matt and his wife contribute locally to TNVR, Profile Racing will donate a portion of each hub sale to a local non-profit specializing in this service to our feline buddies.
Thanks for your continued support!” – Profile Racing

Now this is what we’re talking about! Profile Racing sent Billy Woodfin and Johnny Delbalso over to the Source BMX Distillery for a Lock In Session. Needless to say, these two absolutely crushed it with their time riding the ramps. Check out what both of these guys cooked up!

This is WILD!

If you have been riding BMX for a little while now, there’s a good chance you have considered switching some parts out for titanium over chromoly. However, the decision might not be as straightforward as it may seem. There’s a number of factors to consider like price, the style of riding and the amount of abuse you put on it. Sure, titanium is lighter, but isn’t always able to take that beating that chromoly does and the price is much higher. Here’s a video breaking down the differences and why you might choose one over the other courtesy of Profile Racing who offer a ton of products in both metals. Check it out to figure out what material might just be right for you!
“We’re back at the @Profile Racing factory yet again and this time we’re discussing some nitty gritty technical stuff with Profile’s resident Titanium expert, Dave Briggs. Enjoy a casual conversation about the hows and whys of that lovable, but bank-draining material known as titanium.” – Our BMX
Profile Racing have added transition shredder Casson Downing to their squad over in the U.K! Casson dialed in his ride with a bunch of new Profile parts and there is a full BIKE CHECK over on the Profile website if you would like to take a closer look.
“With the amount of talent coming from the U.K. at the moment, it has been tough finding the right candidates to become brand ambassadors, but when it comes to Casson it was a no brainer, he is very humble, approachable, and incredibly stylish on a bike. Perfectly suited for us at PRE, and we are more than stoked to announce that he has joined the gang alongside Tom, Dec, Isaac and Lima” – Carlos Gomez (Profile Europe/PRE)
