I also think that flatland can be an entry point into BMX for new riders as it so accessible, we want to work with anyone who is looking at initiatives to grow flatland in the UK. Super excited about this! - Alan Woods, ALANS BMX

About HERESY BMX
H E R E S Y was born in 2009 as Alexis Desolneux dreamt to create a project with friends which would become their own medium of expression where riding meets music and art influences… A project which would value the essence of flatland, the universal experience of riding your bike on flat ground, anywhere in the world, at any level. Quickly products were designed and the original AscenD frame design was born with the goal to establish a classic flatland shape. Simple but unique, it aims to be both functional and beautiful. The frame came as a necessity to create the riding H E R E S Y riders had on their mind. The brand has a long video history archived on Vimeo (heresybmx), with team videos and creative individual video edits from George Manos, Sebastian Grubinger, Matthieu Bonnécuelle, Michaël Husser, Peter Olsen, Takahiro Enoki and Alexis Desolneux. Recently Jeanne Seigneur and Aude Cassagne joined H E R E S Y and we’re happy to support them as they are pushing women flatland and flatland in general in their own way.
H E R E S Y offers 100% flatland products but is also definitely open to take flatland to the streets with a whole range of products designed to bring both types of riding together for more fun and possibilities.
