American BMX Company (ABC) is busy developing a ling of modern BMX components that will features the legendary Cook Bros. racing name. ABC recently acquired the rights to the brand name. The company announced earlier this year that it bought Race Inc. Quality BMX Products and acquired the rights to Bottema Forks, two more legendary BMX brands. Cook Bros.

There is no lack of creativity style, and Trey's "ride everything" mindset in this all new video. Watch "Analaog" now.
"Been cracking away at this video since the start of 2020 with 95% of the clips happening on a Friday night or a Saturday day. Making things happen the best we could between Covid bullshit and Troy Charlesworth (filmer) working a full time job. All the clips are from North of the QLD/NSW borders except for 2 from a school we hit before the Covid border closure. Video was cut short just in the end due to a knee injury. Enjoy and see yous in a few months ??" - Boyd
The city can be a dangerous playground, with a safe TSG helmet the active urbanites’ first line of defence. The TSG Meta is an all-sport city helmet, featuring a ventilated, lightweight In-mold construction and our easy to adjust Dial Fit System for a perfect fit on the move.
-In-mold construction: In-Mold Construction is a technique that connects the shock absorbing EPS liner directly to the polycarbonate shells to create a lightweight and strong structure. In the first step, the flat PC sheet is heated and deep-drawn over the helmet mold. Then the outline of the helmet shell and the holes are milled out. This PC shell is then placed in the helmet mold and the anchors for straps and fitting systems are placed. Then the mold will be closed, and the EPS is injected. Now the polycarbonate shell bonds with the EPS and a super light, yet extremely stable helmet is created.
