bigquotes“I am super happy and excited. Joining the Red Bull family is like a dream come true. It shows that our hard work paid off. I can’t wait to realize future projects with them. I especially want to thank my team for their dedication and the way they surprised me with the helmet.”Tomomi Nishikubo

bigquotesAs “just” a formal announcement seemed a bit boring, Tomomi’s team decided to surprise him in the best possible way – faking an entire video shoot for Tomomi’s helmet partner POC, who was more than happy to play along. By including Tomomi’s trials idols Danny and Fabio, the surprise is taken to new heights. Completely unaware of the real reason behind his latest shoot, Tomomi had no idea why Rim was at his door. That is, until he unpacks his new Red Bull helmet with his iconic bike ninja logo for the first time and is welcomed to the family. Mission accomplished.Rasoulution

 As an Asian person this is awesome to see and inspiring. I'll never pick up a sponsorship but it's inspiring to see someone like me make it, and makes me want to be the best I can be on a bike. Keep killing it Tomomi.

 It's like Red Bull collects infinity stones. This group of trials riders is amazing. What we all need is a free 5 weeks...to watch a game of horse with these three. Feels like it would take that long to figure out what one of them can't do. Congrats to Mr. Nishikubo!

 He deserved it. So much effort and creativity in each vide he has released. Nice to see Red Bull putting an eye over street trials riders, hope that also push that marketing segment further. I really would like to see more guys, like John Langlois, Ali Clarkson or Duncan Shaw wearing one of those helmets.

 Well deserved. But he should tighten the helmet straps... at least in case a RedBull helmet is still considered as a safety feature.

 Very cool way of parking his bike in front of his house Smile

Imagine Monster Energy had given him a deal the day before.
