Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, is proud to partner with triple-threat BMX team rider Dennis Enarson to put his spin on the Old Skool Pro BMX, featuring first-of-its-kind WAFFLECUP BMX construction that’s been designed, tested and approved by today’s top riders. Representing Dennis’ renowned abilities, refined aesthetic and focus on mental clarity when riding, the Enarson Old Skool Pro BMX leans on an earthy olive/gum colorway, and is debossed with a hand-drawn mandala based on one of Dennis’ tattoos, which was created by longtime friend, fellow rider and tattoo artist, Thomas Hooper.
“His tattoos always mean a lot to me and it’s nice to put some of his work on the shoe,”Enarson comments. “These are strong shoes that are hard to mess up, and I dig them more and more as they age, which I don’t think I’ve ever said about any shoe in my life —especially with how hard I can be on them. The colors and materials make this the perfect shoe for shredding, camping, or just stompin’ around.”
Specifically created with the BMXer in mind, WAFFLECUP BMX provides unrivaled support and durability without sacrificing precious pedalfeel. A herringbone underlayer adds a second life beneath Vans’ classic gum rubber compound that has a more rigid flex pattern – all reinforced like a tank.
The revolutionary Dawn Flex helmet brings true soft-fit comfort combined with a CE certified construction. This is what soft-shell users have been waiting for: the perfect compromise between comfort and safety. We have added our FlexTech innovation to this classic full-cut design with ear protection. The Dawn Flex utilizes a series of interior EPS foam segments connected by a reinforced skeleton, allowing the helmet to flex and mold to your head while still exceeding safety standards. The result is a lid that fits snugly without cramping, and will exceed all your expectations.
-Hardshell construction: Hardshell helmets are constructed from ABS or PP plastic. This outer shell gets bonded to the EPS core for a two-piece construction that provides high durability and ultimate high-impact protection.
