Etnies has announced that Emil Johansson will be joining Brandon Semenuk as part of its MTB team.
The shoe brand revealed today that the Swedish slopestyle rider is the latest addition to their MTB lineup following Brandon Semenuk who they signed back in 2011. Alongside the announcement, Etnies revealed that they are working on a signature colorway for its latest signing that will be announced later this year.
|I've been riding Etnies for many years now and when the opportunity to work with them came up, there was no hesitation. There are so many plans already being made for the coming years and I can't wait to see where this journey goes.— Emil Johansson|
|Today, Etnies is proud to announce that Emil Johansson has joined Brandon Semenuk as part of the MTB team. Emil came out of Sweden and captured the attention of the free ride world at a young age. Emil is an FMB World Tour and Crankworx Champion with many FMB Diamond wins to his name. His controlled style with technical tricks on the big slopestyle course obstacles have a way of putting both fans and judges at ease.— Etnies|
I for one, missed the SS Comp this year, as I also missed Rampage. They are my my two favorite things. Speed and Style is cool as well. But, speed with no style..? Boring..
Brian Park's Predictions - Head of Editorial - PinkBike
"7. Slopestyle competitions will continue their slide into irrelevance. It's bittersweet, but did anyone miss them this year? To be honest, I think this one is a good thing because we should get more Matt MacDuff videos and Semenuk-style videos from the hugely talented crop of slopestyle riders instead. At our core, all we really want to see out of slopestyle is cool shit on bikes, and the competition aspect of slopestyle was always largely spectacle anyway.."
Curious for a review. I had been rocking the 5-10 life for a while. Just bought some RC shoes and am quite unimpressed with the grip.
