BERN HELMETS X WU TANG CLAN

Bern X Wu Tang

Bern have upped the ante when it comes to making wearing a life saving lid cool!

We are excited to officially annouce our collaboration with the Wu-Tang brand for 2013 / 2014 launch this September! This is a huge collab for Bern. 




At any resort you will see about 20% of young shredders with "W" stickers on their helmets and now we can offer them the EXCLUSIVE Wu-Tang branded helmet. Available in Macon, and Team Macon. This is going to be a hot seller!

Check out the latest from Wu Tang Clan here:

WORLD INDUSTRIES - 2013 RETIREMENT SERIES DECKS

Please don't buy these decks if... You are easily offended!

So like me… for years you have sat up till 4:00am watching Le Tour De France. For all the hours you've put into it, these days you're feeling a little jilted, right?

Dope in cycling… who would have thunk it?

Then, like me you will probably  grab a LIVE JUICED DECK to go straight to the pool room for a laugh.



WORLD INDUSTRIES… love em' or hate them, they are making an attempt to get back to their roots after a venture into the big box world.

And they are back with graphics as offensive as ever. Time will tell if they can redeem themselves… but these decks were way too funny to pass up.

We only grabbed a limited number of these, so if they do your black heart good… be quick. These are in stock now.

We also have a limited number of 1990's Re Issue decks arriving very soon. If you loved the shapes and don't want to thrash the original, these are for you!

PARIS TRUCKS - NEW V2, 43 DEGREE BASEPLATE - DIVINE WHEELS & BUSHINGS

Just a heads up new gear from PARIS & DIVINE is in Australia and ready for immediate shipping.

PARIS V2 180mm - ALL COLOURS, 195 & 150 TRUCKS, NEW 43 DEGREE BASEPLATES & DIVINE BUSHINGS & WHEELS!
 
 
Paris V2 Trucks: This is the same beloved Paris design with some new upgrades and improvements! The V2 improvements include.

Redesigned, stronger faced hangers.

Tougher, longer lasting pivot cups.

Improved kingpin clearance for a better carve.

Stronger, more durable powder coated finish.

Branded grade 8 kingpins

 
The Paris 180mm is the all-around and perfect any terrain truck.

These are able to handle anything and everything you could possibly throw at them.

The 180mm hanger is the perfect go-to size for most decks and compliments all riding styles.

Like all Paris Trucks, the baseplate angle is 50 degrees, which provides the perfect balance between stability and manoeuvrability.

All Paris Trucks are built with 90a Divine bushings

The NEW Paris V2 43° baseplate is destined to enhance your downhill experience!

The smaller angle allows for you speed demons to push your limits, without the twitch that comes from 50 degree trucks at high speeds.

Luckily this baseplate accepts the original Paris 180/150 hangars!

This 43° longboard baseplate leaves the hangar sitting pretty low, so watch out for wheel bite if you don't have generous wheel wells.

Tune up your speed board with some 43° baseplates and some venom bushings!

Divine Wheels & Bushings: Premium race formulated urethane for ultimate performance. Designed to enhance any riding condition & style. 
 
Get on it!

KIDS HELMETS - PROPER FITTING LIDS FOR LITTLE KIDS BY TSG!

If you are a size 9 foot, would you buy a pair of size 13 shoes and put on a few pairs of socks to make them fit?

Probably not. But that’s what you get with a lot of so called KIDS HELMETS. A single standard adult sized shell, packed out with extra foam and padding.

Frustrated by this when trying to buy a good helmet for his kid, the owner of TSG decided to make a range of perfect fitting and sized helmets for the little folk.

The TSG NIPPER MINI, NIPPER MAXI & EVOLUTION YOUTH are the result.

They a scaled versions of our adult helmets with all the same features. No more padded out oversized helmets that make kids look like a mushroom!

NIPPER MINI & MAXI are in-mold lightweight helmets, very important to prevent neck damage from the weight of the helmet in a fall. We recommend these for 
kids 2 – 8 years old

The EVOLUTION YOUTH is a tougher ABS SHELL model, recommended for 
kids over 6 years old.


The Evolution Youth (52 – 54cm) the same attention to detail as the adult version, the Evolution Youth delivers a durable ABS helmet shell with an anatomically correct fit optimized for young riders. The Low Fit hardshell construction securely covers temples and atlas and is the best pick for young riders conquering park, rails and trails. 
It is never too early to let your kid ride safe in style.
CPSC, CE & *ASA 2063:2008

The Nipper Mini made a great impact when we launched it in 2010. It is the first in-mold half-shelf helmet for little children offering a perfect fit and ultimate protection
even at the sides and the lower back of a child‘s super sensitive head. It fits secure without the need of an additional adjustment wheel at the back, facilitating handling
and maximising safety. This 195 g lightweight (48 - 52cm) offers an anatomically correct fit for children and features superior protection as well as being extremely comfortable.
A set of 4 inner pads is included to customise the fit and allow for growth, the Nipper Mini is perfectly adjustable to the individual head size.
CPSC & CE ONLY

The Nipper Maxi has the same fit, same protection, same comfort, same style as the Nipper Mini but designed in a larger packaging (52 – 54cm)  for children and small sized adult heads. This in-mold Low Fit helmet uses our best technologies in a 258 g light and durable design with maximum protection and easy customisation.
CPSC & CE ONLY

DIVINE WHEEL Co. Presents "Dan Couch & the Hollywood Hills"

DIVINE WHEEL Co. 
Presents
"Dan Couch & the Hollywood Hills"
 




Daniel Couch does not simply ride a hill, He sets his sights on terrain and battles it into submission. Here he is in the Hollywood Hills blazing his own path and conquering yet another cache of previously uncharted terrain.

We had both the pleasure and the fear of working with Daniel to film this newest release from Divine Wheels. He is hands down one of the gnarliest riders on the Divine team and although he almost broke himself off several times during the filming of this project, he remained calm, cool, and collected while doing it.

" The 65mm Road Ripper is buttery and consistent on any terrain, every slide. Road Rippers stay fast with its square edges and will take all of the abuse you slide over.
 I choose the 65mm ripper because they are lightweight and slide for a lifetime. "

Dan Couch, Divine Team Rider

TSG HELMETS - NEW KRAKEN & KRAKEN+ WITH MIPS TECHNOLOGY

Thanks for the great response to the new 2013 colours on our EVOLUTION SERIES HELMETS!

This week I am featuring the KRAKEN & NEW KRAKEN+ helmets.

By now most of you are familiar with the KRAKEN with FLEX TECH, the only hard foam EPS to offer the same comfort as a flimsy 2 Stage foam helmet.

The unique FLEX TECH liner offers way more comfort, ventilation and most importantly PROTECTION!



New for 2013 we have a new premium model the KRAKEN +. This amazing helmet in uses the Multi-directional Impact Protection System, or MIPS.

If you haven't heard of MIPS before, it is a Swedish company that has developed this very cool technology that provides superior protection, learn more about MIPS helmets here:

http://mipshelmet.com/the-company

Also check out the 'HOW IT WORKS TAB' for further technical details on MIPS technology.




It's not cheap. But then again, neither is brain surgery. If your pushing the limits and want the ultimate protection, KRAKEN + with MIPS is for you.

NEW 2013 TSG SUPERLIGHT HELMET COLOURS
