When he’s not making smoothies for all of New England, Aaron Smith is out riding his ass off and doing moves like this DP to bars. The man also has himself a couple signature products from us that are out and kick ass! His true top load Brace Stem, and his Live Free Or Die Pivotal seat.

VitalBMX just gave honors to Demolition Legend/Hall of Fame Rider Mike “Rooftop” Escamilla for having one of the Top Ten Best BMX Video Part Songs from his part in Etnies “Forward” (2002). While it may not be an official ESPY or a Golden Popcorn, and there’s always an element of personal opinion, I’d say they hit the nail on the head here. As progressive, fast-paced, timeless, and just jaw-dropping as Rooftop’s part is in this video, it really needed an equally fast-paced and timeless song. “Kids of the Black Hole” by Adolescents really rounded it out well. His section was the pace-setter for “Forward” by opening up the whole video…..Oh, and the Rooftop on fire scene was absolutely and unashamedly filmed in our old warehouse. Watch his part, scour the recesses of the internet for the rest of the sections, and watch his last Demolition edit after you’ve watched this. Then go backflip over a helicopter off of a rail….on fire.
We’re so stoked to finally get out our new 2015 goods this year that we’ve been showing off since 2014′s Interbike show.

The front of the poster is possibly one of the best photos we’ve put out too, we’ll have that post up shortly and how you can get a poster too. Click HERE to view it BIG.
RideBMX just posted an awesome write up with Tyler Fernengel focusing on his Readers Choice Nora Cup win in 2014. 2014 was a HUGE year for Tyler and I’m sure this award was icing on the cake!

The Left/Right DVD by Ryan Navazio that came out in 07 dropped online a couple days ago, and just watched Rob’s parts again for the 100th time just now. It’s one of those timeless parts where he drops some heavy bangers. You definitely don’t want to miss watching this again, and realize that it came out 8 years ago. Also, be sure to check out the Vimeo page for the full writeup on how the video came about.
Biz once again proves why he’s been a top rider for almost 2 decades. This new RotatoR freecoaster video is of his latest/ greatest that he’s been filming throughout most of 2014. Filmed and edited by: Calvin Kosovich

So we’ve posted the edits from the Markit New Years Cash Jam this morning and here are the photos from the day. So just in case you missed something amongst the madness you can see it here in still form. It’s always awesome to see photos to go along with clips so you get that extra chance to look over the craziest moves from the day and see all the details of the trick that makes them so rad. Be sure to click on the post and check out all photos from the crazy shit that went down during the Markit New Years Cash Jam.
So the Markit Cash Jam is in the books and what a blast it was! There was an awesome mix of Pro riders, who have ridden the ramp before and knew the lines, and Am riders who had never step foot on the Markit ramps and had to figure out the ramp on the spot. Regardless of Pros or Ams, everyone killed it and everyone had a chance to win some cash for killing it! The jam started off with the highest alleyoop over the hip, then Demolition’s Satellite Slayer, followed by East County BMX’s Euro Jam and then they day wrapped up with an overall ramp cash jam where if you did something crazy you got instant cash money. Here is Dig’s perspective from the jam courtesy of DOEBY and be sure to click on the post in order to check out the Jam edits from Vital and RideBMX!
Just like Jeff Z’s top 10, Ryan Fudger also made up his own for this rad RIDEbmx gallery. Connor (pictured), Coco and Christian made the cut and they all look amazing. Click here to check out the whole top 10 list.

Dennis and I were lucky enough to go on a trip to Portugal to film an edit for Nokia phones. The whole edit was filmed with the new Nokia lumia which is pretty crazy. Thanks to Hadrian for having us come out to ride and have an adventure in Portugal. From the views to the spots, Portugal was amazing! We got to ride some skateparks as well as street when we were out there and like you can see in the edit, it was all awesome. Of course Dennis was doing the most insane stuff on a daily basis. Even though I know how good he is he still seems to surprise me with something new all the time. We were out there for 10 days and on the last day Dennis and I both got sick. He got it the worst, we are thinking it was food poisoning from the last place we ate at. The whole trip we had an awesome friend showing us around and taking us to the best places to eat, and of course on the last day he wasn’t there and we got sick as shit. Thanks Hadrian, nuno, and Hugo for showing us around and hanging out and making this trip one that won’t be forgotten! – Ronnie

“How’s it going guys? I hope all is well.
I just wanted to check in and send over some photos from the GMG Trails in Pittsboro, Nc. They held a jam for my buddy Darren Bouldins (@darrenbouldin) birthday.
Nick Digeroloma (@nickdige) got these photos for me from the jam so I thought I’d send them over. I filmed a bunch of clips for my buddy’s video he’s working on for his shirt brand, Pareidolia, as well. I went down to Miami for 3 weeks after thanksgiving for some school shows with my buddy Jared Ward and Joey Scarborough. And then I’m headed to Mass at the end of December for a few months to film for it more and chill with my family there. That’s about it for now, ”

Street riders always keep an eye out for an spots, things to ride that weren’t meant to be ridden. Some riders have taken that further than others. Tate Roskelly has taken his riding and spot finding to a place where most riders do not recognize, his spots look different from everyone else’s and its because he see’s it a different way. We sat and watched as Tate was given a blank canvas; other people’s trash, and managed to turn it into treasures. Check it out after the jump.
We’re beyond stoked for Tyler Fernengel (Readers’ Choice Award) and Mike “Hucker” Clark (Dirt Rider Of The Year) getting RideBMX Nora Cup 2014 awards that we whipped up this congratulatory ad up for them.

These two goof balls just put together this Step Brothers inspired edit that eventually breaks down into a thick soup o’ style that the two pour into parks and bowls around California. Never a dull moment with these two.
Doyle gives you the rundown on why FUSE are the pads for him and that he in fact had bought some FUSE pads and loved them before ever getting sponsored by them, if thats not the ultimate endorsement I don’t know what is. Chris also shreds the shit out of the House Park bowl in Austin in this edit giving you even more reason to watch it now.

Our guys Drew Hosselton, Rob Wise, and Kris Fox all went over the pond to jump in on another UK Tea and Biscuits Tour with the fine folks at Elephant Distribution. They caught up with Demolition UK riders, Michael Jordan and Jordan Aleppo and rode some amazing parks and only got rained on a couple days.

It was a wild journey to say the least. Enjoy!”
The Crooked World just released a hilarious travelers guide to Australia with Demolition’s very own Australian, Dave Dillewaard. Dave gives you the down and dirty on what to expect when going down unda and makes you laugh in the process. $20 for a six pack, I cannot imagine…
Dave has been in the states now for a few weeks and been shredding parks and foundation spots all over the western half of the country. During one of his sessions he was able to get this sweet GoPro sequence of a big gap wall he did and was kind enough to send it over for our enjoyment! Click on the post to check out this sequence and Dave’s travel guide to Australia, you don’t want to miss it!
Ronnie and Dennis flew out to Portugal a few months back to team up with Hadrien Picard and Lumia to film an edit around the country with nothing but cell phones. The parks and street spots this crew covers in this edit is amazing and needless to say these two ride all those spots like no one else can. This edit has that cool acoustic feel to it, mixed with badass riding and picturesque spots you surely do not want to miss out on this one. Hit play and enjoy.
Chris Doyle, Aaron Ross and Devon Hutchins went on a cool little road trip from Doyle’s home town of Pittsburgh to the TRA Doublecross contest in Bethlehem. The crew was working on a web edit for their shop sponsor, Empire, and ended up with enough extra photos from the trip that they put together THIS HERE gallery for Dig. Devon’s photos came out super good so be sure to head over to DIG and take a look.
I just got home from Redbull Dreamline in North Carolina and Texas Toast and it was probably the best two weeks of my life. From riding some of the best dirt jumps, hanging with all the homies, to just being on the road and having no worries at all. I got to travel from Dreamline to Texas with Dustin Orem and Drew Bezanson, stopping in Tyler Texas along the way to hang with Morgan Wade and shoot some guns. The amount of ammo, clay pigeons, and tannerite (Google if you don’t know what this is) we burned through was unreal. After going a bit Rambo, we then drove to Austin to meet up with the Haro guys and get stoked for Toast. They rented a house and we just got to hang out, cook dinners, and had a good time, it really made it feel like a team and a family. Both contests were amazing and I couldn’t be more stoked on how I rode, I made finals at both and had the most fun of my life out there. Cheers to everyone who made this trip possible and fun. Here is a little photo journal that I put together from my trip. Until the next one..
Kris Fox does some sunny soul searching and bowl carving at beaches and bowls across Southern California then talks about his approach to BMX, why he loves it, and how came up with the name for his frame for SE bikes, The Gaudium. Good vibes and good clips throughout this edit. Check it out!
The fine photographers at RideBMX magazine just posted an awesome FOCUS photo gallery that features our very own high speed space traveler, Kris Fox, going huge as usual. Head over to Ride and check out the goods and see the photos BIG!
Josh Clemens always has something going, between working, riding, traveling, filming, living, laughing and everything else in between it’s impossible to keep up with it all. So I thought it was a perfect time to catch up with Josh and ask a few quick questions about his year and what else he has got lined up on the horizon. So click on the post and check out A Year with Josh Clemens.
We’ve been showing off our Axes grips on social media since we got samples of them a couple weeks ago but never really wrote anything about them in detail till now. They’re still a ways out and scheduled to release beginning of next year but figure we’d show em off now regardless. They’re coming in non flange (150mm length) and flange (155mm length) versions and with an outer diameter of ø31mm. For all those that like a bit meaty grip that is comfy as hell, these are worth the wait.
Last week Cordova, Dillsy, Enns and myself went sessoning out in the middle of nowhere and from that day we posted the Session to Nowhere gallery, that I hope most of you enjoyed. But this photo here was just too good to post with the others, the quarter has a half foot of vert and at only four feet tall it is not easily sessioned. So when Jason stepped up to the plate and called out the Canadian we were stoked to see it happened but weren’t sure how it was going to get it done on this beat ass quarter. A few minutes later Jason stabbed into the perfect Canadian, rolled away clean and showed us how it’s done! So for your viewing pleasure we hung onto it for a few days longer so we can post it individually as your new wallpaper. So get stoked, make your computer look sick, and then go build a DIY spot for you and your crew to session!
