GT BMX is releasing Can You Film This?, a full-length video that highlights its badass roster of up and coming riders. Three years in the making, Can You Film This? was initially a project created to compile the riders’ stacked footage, particularly those spur-of-the-moment clips where they might ask, “Hey, can you film this?” In time, and with enough footage, it evolved into something more.
Can You Film This? features GT riders from around the world including:
• Chelsea Wolfe
• Dillon Leeper
Today, etnies premiered the new Devon Smillie full video part on the brand’s YouTube channel. Devon put in some serious work in the streets to create this five-minute, three-song part. He’s always been known as a rider with remarkable consistency and a very difficult technical trick selection. His latest video part is full of progressive riding and NBDs, like the last combo on an up-and-over rail. Devon will be running his new etnies Windrow Vulc signature colorway in the X Games BMX Street Contest this Friday, and they are available today on etnies.com.
Devon’s clean, classic signature black/black/white color combo with the etnies stylized “E” logo on the side, and his Fly Bikes “Fuego” logo on the footbed fits his style.
Perfect for riding or chilling in, the Windrow Vulc arrives in a single wrapped vulcanized constructed shoe with a Force Shield reinforced upper. This etnies shoe has a Foam Lite 2 molded EVA footbed and a Geo-Hex tread pattern outsole. It offers long-lasting comfort with a rubber heel wrap for support with a 400NBS rubber outsole.
Devon Smillie got his first racing bike at just 3 years old. With all-around abilities, a motocross and BMX racing background, and strong skateboarding skills too, it is safe to say that Smillie has left his mark in BMX. When Devon’s not ripping a local spot, you can catch him on the track, drifting his 350Z.

News has arrived that Alex Hiam is no longer riding for Colony. Here's the scoop from both parties:
“After a great 15 years of road trips, video parts and a lifetime of good memories. The day has come where our good friend @alexhiam is moving on from Colony. We all know AH is an incredible rider that blows minds every time he steps on a bike and will continue to do so for many years to come.
Knowing Alex since he was 12 years old we’d be lying if this wasn’t emotional. Ever since that fateful day at Kuraby, when we first saw him ride, it’s been amazing to be part of his growth into the man he is today.
If you don't know the name Miki Fleck by now then you've definitely been living under a rock. Arguably one of the most progressive street riders of today Miki's energy on and off the bike is unmatched! We knew that Miki deserved his own signature frame and that is how the "ZUIN" was born. Miki knew exactly what he wanted when it came to the geometries, keeping some features from the Incarnate V2 like Invest Cast Drop Outs with built in Chain Tensioners and Removeable Brake Mounts, but with a few tweaks like lengthening the Chain Stay to 13.25" Slammed and having a taller Stand Over of 9.3". This frame is ready for anything Miki puts it through.
