Today, etnies is very proud to launch the Camber Crank Shoe, inspired by the Marana and designed especially for those riders using flat pedals, with the OCX-3 Michelin rubber compound that offers superior grip, durability and cushioning. Aesthetically designed with the skateboarding heritage of the Barge and Marana, the Camber Crank outsole is made of the Michelin compound that is versatile under all conditions and offers durability and cushioning. The Camber Crank was also designed with a luggy tread pattern on the toe and heel that allows for uphill and downhill trekking while the stiff molded TPU in the midsole provides positive energy transfer and protection from the pedal upon impact.
Australian Olympic BMX cycling hopeful Kai Sakakibara, suffered a major crash on Saturday 8 February 2020 during the opening heat of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in Bathurst, Australia. Kai underwent surgery the next day to relieve pressure on his brain following the serious crash and was in a coma for 8 weeks. Initially, doctors were not confident he would survive but he fought hard and he continues to make strong progress in all aspects of his rehabilitation.
Due to his extended stay in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and extensive rehabilitation requirements, Kai’s medical bills are expected to be substantial even after his insurance is applied.
Kai has always been and continues to be a positive role model to many kids and adults, not only in Australia but across the globe. Kai would always make time to sign an autograph or have a photo taken or just to have a chat. This is what made Kai such a popular person amongst the BMX community and why so many of us have been impacted following Kai’s crash.
Southlake Illawarra BMX Club (Kai’s home BMX club) and Ace Race have come together to create a memorable #KaiFight77 jersey that represents everything Kai. We want to continue to support Kai and we believe this jersey will achieve that.

Have you missed riding your bike during the Covid-19 situation? Wouter Segers: In the beginning it a was struggling with a small injury so I couldn’t ride my bike anyway, but after a few weeks of lockdown I think every BMX rider wanted to go back to the track as soon as possible. So yeah I missed riding my bike a lot during those days!
Are you often picked to try out new parts for the team? Wouter Segers: Most of the time my dad is the one who comes with the new parts so then I am the obvious choice I guess. But I really like to do that kind of testing so I don’t mind being the first, and I
It is fair to say that freestyle is as much an art as it is a sport. Freestyle is an art that uses the world around us as it's canvas. And sometimes it is in those lost and forgotten places, those places of decay, that lies an opportunity for creativity. Bo Wade finds and repurposes an abandoned restaurant construction site as his blank canvas for his latest edit, lost and found. enjoy.
