Our Legends, Union, and GT Bicycles today announced the launch of a limited-edition GT Pro Performer 26” bike presented by Our Legends x Union. The exclusive bike pays tribute to the heritage of the iconic GT brand while being fashion-forward enough to catch the eye of the streetwear customer. Over the last year, Our Legends has designed a wide collection of t-shirts, sweat shirts, hats, and socks featuring historic GT BMX logos. These items have brought back the nostalgia of long-time GT BMX fans and athletes, while also captivating a younger generation who love the throwback culture. This new limited-edition Pro Performer will continue to do the same. “GT is nothing short of an icon,” said Our Legends. “We wanted to bring our favorite era of GT BMX back into the

The GT team made their Vantastic Voyage down the east coast to Florida for warm weather, cool spots, fun parks, and Swamp Fest. It was a motley crew consisting of Brian Kachinsky, Albert Mercado, Dan Conway, Leandro Moreira, Jeff Ludwig, Kody Bricen and Jordan Grandinetti shredding all sorts of terrain and having an awesome time! "Come along on a Vantastic Voyage with GT Bikes' Brian Kachinsky, Albert Mercado, Dan Conway, Leandro Moreira, Jeff Ludwig, Kody Bricen and Jordan Grandinetti as they head to Florida with their final destination, Swamp Fest!
Brian Kachinsky meet up with his new French GT teammate Sullyvan Guaincêtre for a four day street mission in the city of Lyon. The spots looked amazing and Brian came through with his burly go for it style and he had some wild looking crashes—but thankfully he escaped any major injuries—and Sullyvan delivered with his super smooth tech style. Seeing their contrasting styles in the same video is pretty sick.
GT adds French shredder Sullyvan Guaincêtre to their roster. Johan Poyet, Freestyle Team Manager at Frenchys-Distribution, is pretty stoked on Sully’s move to GT Bicycles: "Sully fits greatly with GT BMX: he takes his riding seriously but keeps a huge part for the fun which matches very well with GT philosophy, fun is serious business. Sully surprised everybody with his edit during Sosh Urban Motion 4. He now lives in Montpellier, and his riding keeps on evolving . It is always a great pleasure to witness his creativity expressed through his tech and original lines."
Dan Conway goes all in for his ender section in GT's "Seriously Fun". Dan took some diggers while filming this section, but all those big rails, kinkers, hubbas, and ledge/rails stand no match for this savage.
