Oakley Chrome BMX Arrays Sunglasses

oakley chrome bmx arrays   Oakley Chrome BMX Arrays SunglassesThis product was inspired by the decades of Oakley BMX frames back in the late 70′s and early 80′s. The latest design will surely, not only give you the ultimate rider look, but will definitely catch everyone else’s attention as well.

This new edition of Array is made of both a Jawbone and Radar frame. Each is paired with 3 matching lenses and an earsock to match the color of anodized parts back then which is also starting to come back as the latest fad.

In addition to this hip design, Oakley added the matte black color for the shade’s frame jaw to match those BMX tires nicely. The Oakley BMX Array comes in a custom Microclear storage bag which is also good for polishing the lenses and a case to store them in.

And when I said Array, it means this also comes with 3 lenses, one frame and multiple…

Bebop exposed new flat pedals at the 2010 Sea Otter Classic. The VP59 is the result of Bebop’s initiative to research on the basic qualities BMXers want in a pedal. Bebop found out that most riders remove the center pins of their pedals. Because of this, Bebop decided to design the VP59 without your typical webbing and with material that functions to help hold in place additional pins on the flat pedals.

Weighing 365 grams per pair, the VP59 only has five pins per side, three in front and two in the rear. It has a low stack height of 7.5mm and a full length Cro-Mo axle. The bushing is self-lubricating central/inner LSL.

The pedal has an extruded aluminum body and outer sealed cartridge bearing. It retails for $85 and comes in colors of blue, light blue, pink, purple, black, silver white, yellow, green and red.

BMX Masters 2010 300x191   BMX Masters 2010

The BMX Masters 2010 lives up to its motto of ‘getting better and better every year.’ On July 16 to 18, the Cologne Jugendpark at Germany will be filled by about 300 riders from all over the world with half of them to be Pro riders. The event will have prize money of 15,000€ spread out to three disciplines namely Dirt, Super-Ramp and Park.

Originally, there were five disciplines but organizers Rockstar Energy Drink decided to cut it down to three. This was done so there will be more time and freedom for everybody to prioritize the needs of the riders like practice-time. This will also ensure a smoother flow of the contest.

The Halfpipe, which is popular to the younger generation, was deemed not to be cut out for the highly awaited event. The organizers are considering the return of the Vert-ramp should there be a major demand for it….
