The always sunny weather in BC's Okanagan region is known for long days, warm evenings and unreal sessions. Whether it be at a local bike park, trail network, or jumps, the strong Okanagan scene continues to produce some of the world's best bike athletes. Our approach to putting together our team is organic and natural, we want to help support our friends. We want to support the guys we know are out there everyday riding for the love of the sport. We have so much respect for the guys we feel fortunate enough to sponsor. We have seen them grow over the years to be some of the world's top athletes and are overwhelmed with a sense of pride when they succeed.

Working with Harrison Mendel and Robb Thompson over the past year we've collected an immense amount of photos and videos during the many casual sessions our guys have. We're looking forward to everyone's contest season, but more importantly were looking forward to hanging out and riding with all our good friends during those summer sessions that go late into the warm nights. If you find yourself around Vernon this summer come in, say hi and grab a lap with one of our guys!

With pride we present our 2015 roster!

 My riding has soooo much in common with those guys...........I ride a bike with two wheels. That is all, carry on. I like the feel of the video. Loose, like they have found their way. Like when your finally old enough to be yourself.
