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!
Profile Racing coming in hot with a fresh signature colorway collection. This time around Chris Childs got the chance to do some colors of his choice and he went with a red and gold combo for Profile’s Acoustic front load stem and Fat Pivotal seat. The stem features a gold front plate and red main body and comes in 48mm and 53mm. The Fat Pivotal seat features Profile’s Wing P logo in Red with gold accents. We’re really digging the color combo and instantly reminded us of a particular superhero, let’s just hope Marvel doesn’t send a cease and desist.
You can pick the Chris Childs signature Acoustic stem and Fat Pivotal seat up at BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Profile Racing worldwide now.
It’s always a good day when a new Mark Mulville video surfaces online! Here’s a look at what he got into during a trip he took to Pittsburgh where he spent his time riding trails, parks and some street in this new video for Profile Racing! Hit play and take a look at a ton of great riding. You can always count on Mark to keep things interesting!
“I took a quick end-of-summer trip to Pittsburgh for Profile Racing to hang with the gang and put together a fun little edit of a few of the good times.
Here is the outcome.
Filmed and edited bye, Bobby Valentine (Welcome to Pittsburgh).” – Mark Mulville
Oh yeah! Some fresh front brake magic from Billy Woodfin! Billy recently took some time off work and made his way down to Florida, then up to Detroit, Michigan to put in work for this new Profile Racing x Albes video that is non-stop heaters! Awesome spots and dialed riding from start to finish. You won’t want to pass this BMX video up!
“Trying to film an edit is always a tough thing for me. Working 40 hours a week as a union electrician and running multiple job sites; I use riding as a way to relax.
Filming an edit sometimes feels like work. I don’t want to let my filmer feel like he is wasting his time when things don’t work out within several tries.
Crashing, getting hurt, coming back to try again and failing are all thoughts that go into my head while filming an edit.
I went into this project with the thought of it being just another ramp session: relax and have fun. So I took a vacation, drove to Florida and filmed with Matt Coplon for three days, then got home and a couple weeks later drove to Detroit and filmed with Jeff Tabb for the final two.” – Billy Woodfin
It’s always a good day when there’s new Mark Mulville footage to check out! Here’s a fresh one featuring Mark going to work on trails, skateparks, street spots and more down in Florida for Profile Racing. Despite COVID putting a huge damper on this summer and any plans of travel, Mark made the most of it and kept his distance to make this gem packed with style and a good mix of tricks. Hit play and take it all in!
“Profile’s Mark Mulville has been a longtime DIG regular, and it’s always a treat seeing new footage of him. This time around, it’s on local Central Florida spots of all types, from trails to the streets. He even throws down some combos reminiscent of his incredible Anthem II section.” – DIG
“This was a challenging one to get done and I wish we were able to capture more, but Covid-19 has made a lot of things much more difficult.
That being said, I am still stoked on the outcome of this little project. It was an absolute treat working with my pal, Zach Ozment over the past few months. Zach did an awesome job at putting this together and guiding me along the way. The plan was to have this done much sooner, but as I already mentioned…Covid!
There is nothing mind blowing involved in this Profile edit. However, it is full of damn good times! I hope you enjoy.” – Mark Mulville

Profile Racing have released their latest collaboration, and this one is for a big milestone. The Leeper Brothers have been apart of the Profile Racing family for 10 years! To celebrate, they’ve released this Leeper Bros X Powers Bike Shop x Profile Racing kit that features a limited edition run of 5 sets of Totem hubs (which Profile brought back specifically for this) in a bronze color with the custom logo laser etched onto the hubs. There’s also a t-shirt to go with this as well! Check out the video up top, then scroll down to check out the hubs and shirt. We would imagine with only 5 sets available these will go FAST.

Profile Racing‘s Neighborhood Crawl series continues! This time around we get a mix of park, street and backyard ramp footage from the Profile squad out cruising in Tampa, Florida! This video has a super good mix of riding and styles, along with plenty of great spots. Hit play and take this all in!
“In January of 2020, I brought part of our crew back down to Tampa for the third Profile Neighborhood Crawl. Over the past year, my hometown has seen a DIY renaissance with a cache of freshly built backyard set-ups and do-it-yourself street spots, all within the backdrop of our communities having stepped up to advocate for a plethora of new public skateparks. This muli-media feature is a celebration of where Tampa Bay has come from, it’s roots in both punk and bmx, and to what it has become.” – Matt Coplon
“Filmed by our whole crew as well as Jona Jachan.
Riding by Cory Foust, Chris Childs, Bobby Proctor, Lucas Porzio, Alex Tate, Dylan Kakowski, Mark Mulville, and Chad Degroot.
