Connor Lodes just sent over this stylish hop pic that he shot of Christian from the other day, and we just couldn’t resist but to make it into a desktop wallpaper. Click image to view BIG!
Kris Fox’s signature Stylus front load stem is in and looking so clean and stylish. We’re loving the Axes logo he chose for the front plate. The Stylus is very similar to our other stems available in that it’s the perfect balance between material, weight, and internal/external machine without any extra gimmicks added or taken away from it. Just like Kris’s riding; clean, stylish, and without any of the added unnecessary extras. Hit up your local shop or mail order to check it out and get one coming to you.
Having Woodward East as your main skatepark makes you a better rider, and Ronnie is proof of just that. So many crazy transfers, and lines. Watch now and while you’re at it, buy his signature Combat bar. You can ride just like Ronnie…
While filming for Dennis’ Rig line promo, our very own Joey Cobbs got this sick looking no-handed 3 pic over a big ol gap. Click image to go BIG. And if you live under a rock and haven’t seen Dennis’ amazing/ latest Rig line edit, check it out HERE>>
Our good friends over at Markit Denim put up a rad little gallery yesterday of photos shot throughout the filming of Dennis’ Rig Line edit. Head over to MARKIT DENIM and check out amazing photos like this fake whip down a four stair and then when your through checking those out, click on this LINK and watch Dennis’ edit again because it is simply too good not to.
Dennis Enarson and good friend, Christian Rigal originally set out to make a quick lil promo video for Dennis’ new Rig line of parts but ended up coming back with 6 minutes of bangers on just about everything rideable from SD to SF. There’s not enough words that can describe how good Dennis is on a bike and how much control he has on dirt, street and ramps. Dennis’ Rig line bars (out now), tires and cranks are fully designed and tested (thoroughly by the looks of this video) by Dennis himself. Watch now and be ready to get stoked.
Hucker and Red Bull are back at it once again. This time watch Hucker talk about Australia, Cam White’s trails, an encounter with one of the most dangerous snakes in the world, and then throw down some seriously insane riding at the Cam White Hillside Dirt Jam.
They guys at Markit Denim are at it again with their Unseen Markit Zero photos feature, this time with Demolition’s Connor Lodes. The above wall ride was featured in Connor’s Dig Mag Interview so it’s not exactly “unseen” but it’s still kick ass! Check out the gallery HERE.
We’ve been knocking out some How-To’s lately in the office and our next one is ready. It shows the in’s and out’s of taking the Rolls V2 hub apart and switching it between LHD and RHD using the Switch Drive System (SDS). Filmed and edited by our very own Josh Clemens (@joshclemens) and brought to you by Kevin. (Seems like Kevin’s got some acting experience)
Doyle has been known as the “pros pro” for some time now for a number of reasons; He’s constantly the nice guy to all riders, knows what his sponsors wants, and is the constant badass on whatever he rides. He’s also known for coming out to SoCal every year and killing the local trails. We decided to sit down with Chris while he was visiting out west at Heath Pinter’s house to get what the big differences are and everything else in-between. Click here to view it all, and click images to view big.
We just got our new Connor Lodes signature “Top Lodes” stems in stock not too long ago and they turned out amazing. The Top Lodes is a nice and mellow top load stem if you’re looking for a stem that doesn’t have as much rise (or drop) as a traditional top load, but still want a traditional reach. It’s also got a great old school style with clean modern lines. And like Connor, it’s perfect for dialing in your nose manuals. Hit up your local shop or favorite mail-order to get one special ordered….And don’t forget to check out his signature Axes pivotal while you’re at it.
There is a rad Gallery of Dennis, Connor and friends at the F.O.D. trails the guys over at Markit the other day. If you haven’t already seen it be sure to click on the link HERE and check it out.
Also while your over the be sure to check out the new Rob Wise unseen Markit Zero photos that they just posted this morning. Those guys are killing it over there!
Hucker makes his annual, or actually I think it’s semi-annual, migration to New Zealand to ride trails, milfs, jetski’s naked, and continue to live free in every way every day. Well worth the watch because any footage of Huck is well worth watching. Thanks to Red Bull for putting all this together.
To show off our new YouTube channel, we uploaded our 2011 full length Last Chance video. We separated the sections on our Vimeo channel a couple years back but now you can watch it in its entirety. Even if you’ve seen it before, it’s definitely worth another watch.
Ronnie and new teammate B.Dosch made a trip to Cleveland to get in a session at Akron, Chenga and Ray’s. Like always, I was surprised by some of the crazy shit that Ronnie does at the parks. Be sure to watch this one on a big screen too!
That’s right, we’re going to Japan! The good people over at Motocross International gave us the invite and so we got together a group of misfits together to hit the open road. Dennis, Connor, Fox, Tyler, and our fearless leader Joey Cobbs will all be in attendance there. We’ll be filming, riding with locals, playing tourist and hitting up shop stops along the way. We’ll be there from 5/15 – 5/24 if any of you out there in cyberspace are around. We can’t wait for this one, we’ve all been dying to get over to Japan for some time now. Follow #vlmdemojapantour on Insta for the updates. Hit the top image to view the full flyer.
Dennis has been rockin’ his new Rig bar for some time now and has been putting it to the ultimate “D.Enarson test”. He’s also been busy putting in some time for his RIG line promo, that will blow your mind. Just saw it yesterday and it’s mind-bottling. Below are the specs on the Rig bar that we currently have in stock in 9″ and 9.25, and available in both Flat Black and Chrome.
Rise: 9″ & 9.25″”
Crossbar OD: .75″
Crossbar Height: 6.5″ (9″) 6.75″ (9.25″)
Crossbar Width: 11.28″ (9″) 11.3″ (9.25″)
Material: 13 butted, heat treated CRMO. Thickest point is 1.8t (.070)
Weight: 33.2 (9″) oz
Since there were so many rad photos of the guys posted in the team page update last week, we just can’t help but make them into wallpapers so that your computer’s desktop is up to date with the freshest riding photos out there. Today’s wallpaper is brought to you by none other than New Hampshire’s finest juicer, Aaron “Aboy” Smith. We found this amazing spot on our Colorado trip last year, the spot looked incredible for photos but was tricky to get a real line at in order to make it happen. No one else wanted to give it a go because of the awkward run up but Aaron got it figured out and rode over the door a few times in order to get the photo just right. Click on in to check it out big and then give it a download to freshen up your desktop!
Daaaaaamn, A-Boy coming in hot with this one! Stop reading and get ready to be psyched to ride.
“Aaron once again puts it down in his usual buttery smooth fashion. From tech to gnarly, everything is stomped and nothing is questionable. Spots in Boston, Kitchener Ontario, and Austin.” – KINK
Hucker has a rad feature that just popped up on the Red Bull Bike blog where he and Demarcus Paul, a mellow street shredder out of SD, are asked the same questions to see where the differ, where they are alike and where they aren’t even in the same ballpark! This is a pretty rad feature so make sure to head over to the Red Bull Bike Blog by clicking here and check it out.
During a recent Red Bull trip to New Zealand, Hucker and our buddy Anthony Napolitan had an epic day shredding the famous Mangawhai pool and snorkeling with some New Zealand fish. Hucker does some wild things that you don’t usually see in a big pool like Mangawhai. Check it out!
This was seriously one of the most exciting and insane things I’ve ever witnessed in person. Kris already had this gap eyed up when we got to camp last summer and was pretty much dead set on getting in done during Demolition Week. I honestly couldn’t see how he would get the distance to clear the gap because the quarter is so steep but one thing I have learned as a BMX photographer is never doubt a rider when they believe they can do something. In this instance we were both a little bit right, the quarter did shoot him straight up to the moon and had him peaking out about 6-8 feet shy of the roof but as he descended back towards earth, Kris’ AA pro race skills carried his momentum through and he was able to just get his front tire to the edge of the roof followed by the rear. I don’t think Kris could have cut this gap any closer and everyone at camp, including Kris, was relieved that it didn’t get any closer than that. Click on the sequence to check it out big and save it as your new desktop wallpaper.
A few weeks back we had a jam at Clairemont Skatepark in San Diego to celebrate the release of all our spring products and to shred with all the local rippers. Damn near half the Demo team made it out to the session and seriously shut the park down with all the insane riding they let loose on the place. Other Pro riders like Broc Raiford, Demarcus Paul and Dylan Stark also made it out to ride and only helped progress the session into the insane level that it got to. Mastroni really came through with the fire on this edit and did a great job capturing that high paced insanity that went down. Big thanks to everyone who came out and made the jam a success, you guys all rule!! Also, be sure to check out our gallery we had up from the jam HERE >>
It has seriously been a while since we have updated the team page photos and since we have been sitting on a stack of sick photos from the guys we have loaded up the team pages with incredible images of your favorite Demolition riders! So stoked to have all these guys repping and rocking Demolition Parts on their bikes! Take some time and click on this post to see some of the craziest photos from the update and then be sure to go through all the team pages to see all the new photos posted because they’re just too sick not to be seen!
All photos shot by Joey Cobbs and Brian Castillo.
The crew from the Michigan Video is at it again this time with a project called “After Hours” where they make awesome setups in a warehouse and film insane combos throughout all hours of the night. Tyler has got some sick clips in here along with the rest of his homies who all come through hard with some sick BMX magic. Check it!
You might have seen some of our insane pic updates of Hucker on our IG but they just now released the vid of the whole Cam White’s King Of The Hill event. These jumps are definitely for a different breed of insane, they almost look like motocross jumps! Congrats again to our main man, Mike “Hucker” Clark for taking home the win.
Not much to say about Mike Gray that his riding hasn’t already told you, he’s a badass. What we can tell you is that we are beyond stoked have Mike Gray representing Demolition Parts! Keep and eye out for more from Mike and Demolition Parts in the future, IT’S GOING TO BE SICK!
Although we have already introduced you to our newest International Rider from Estonia, Erik Orgo. It’s time to make it even more official with this Welcome Edit. Erik came through with this awesome edit that showcases how well rounded of a rider he is. This was filmed by Dmitri Shushuyev during a few sessions at Monsterparks, during the harsh winters of Estonia. Huge thanks to On Wheels and everyone involved for making this happen. Look for more from Erik in the near future!
This isn’t a full fledged bike check by any means but since Biz came by to get some new goodies, we thought we’d put up a couple pics of his whip and Biz flying through our warehouse throwing the b’s. Click more to see more.
Demolition Style Cat, Chris Doyle, met up with Darryl Tocco and banged out this sick ramp edit for their frame sponsor, Kink Bike Co, at Doyle’s local skatepark, The Wheel Mill. Some seriously sick moves in here including, dialed oppo whips, suicide no handers, sub-rail five taps and much much more. A park like the Wheel Mill in a wintered state like PA has got to be gold to a rider like Doyle, and from the looks of it he has been taking advantage!
Dennis absolutely murdered the Spring Product Release Jam on Saturday with too many crazy moves to list. But if you ask me this grind to 180 lookback has the perfect mix of burley, tech, and style into one amazingly rad and rare trick to see done right. So click on this photo to check it out big, save it as your new wallpaper, and get stoked for the next Demo Jam that is sure to go down at a skatepark near you!
Checking in from AZ, just enjoying the last few weeks of good weather before the hell that is summer sets in. I have been staying quite busy finishing up my section for the Volume DVD, and have been playing host to a lot of the Volume crew the past month. Last week we had Jason Enns and Tate Roskelley out here, and had a solid week of stacking clips for the video. Things have settled down a bit, so I have had some time to go out and have some mellow sessions with the homies, finding new spots and working on new tricks. Yesterday Greg Moliterno and I shot this photo of me getting barreled in the fence, I have driven past this thing for years and always wanted to ride it. As you can see we stopped for a session, and it turned out to be a super fun spot I am kicking myself for sleeping on so long. – DH
Red Bull has an awesome gallery on their site from the release jam that went down on Sunday. Check out the gallery here and get a good look at this wedged nosepick by Hucker as well as other dialed riding photos from other shredders in attendance.

Growing up in BMX, jams were always a huge highlight. Contests were awesome for sure but jams were way more laid back, stress free sessions, with some of your favorite pros and a chance for you and your friends to get to hang out with them a bit. The idea for this jam was no different, lets get everyone together to have a great time and get a chance to win some awesome BMX goods. The only difference is now we are making the plans for a jam and hoping that enough people saw the flyers that some of them will show up. It’s funny how you never have doubts about a jam being successful, unless your throwing the jam, then your convinced it’s going to be a ghost town at the skatepark that day. Regardless of my feeling of paranoia about the turnout, tons of people showed up, locals, riders from out of town, tons of demo pros, and a lot of other pros too, it was unreal how many people showed up. What was even more unreal was the riding, one minute Doyle would be throwing huge fakie variations on the street quarter, then the next minute Kris Fox would footjam fakie a 10 foot vert quarter, Dennis was throwing insane grind variations on the uprail with Broc Raiford and Christian Rigal and the list of craziness that went down just keeps going and going. Check out this gallery from the madness that went down at our jam on Saturday, be sure to click through the whole gallery because the riding is insane all the way through to the very end.
The Demolition Spring Product Release Jam went down yesterday at the Clairemont Skatepark and was an amazing sucsess! We would like to thank every single person who made it out to either hang out or ride with us, jams like this wouldn’t be anything if a bunch of rad people didn’t come out and make it what it was, so again a huge thank you for that! We will be posting a gallery from the jam tomorrow and an edit from the jam later in the week so be sure to check those out once they’re posted.
We wanted come up with some new ways for people who came to the jam to be able to win some of our new gear. One of the ways we came up with was an instagram contest where anyone who was at the jam could post an entry with the hashtag #DemoSpringJam and the best 3 photos posted would win some awesome gear. The photos that got posted were all great but the three that won are really stood out, the winners are…
@chriswalsh32 – Fox Sylus Stem
@fantacywings – Lodes Axes Seat
@weps1904 – Markit Seat
It was around this time last year that the street spot assassin himself, Christian Rigal, came out with amazing Welcome to the Pro Team edit. Since then he has not slowed down for a second and is always out filming something crazy! But for right now lets take a minute to stop what we’re doing and watch some good ol’ awesome street riding!
Chris Doyle comes through with a fast paced, high flying, kick ass promo to introduce you to his new signature Maiden fork for 2014. We’ve made some serious upgrades to the fork that should have you clicking 3 turndowns and buzzing shoulders with your inverts in no time! Hit play and see what’s new with the forks, then call up your local dealer to get your hands on a pair today. Then go shred!

If this doesn’t give you any insight on what the future of BMX looks like, I don’t know what will. They all absolutely killed Beunos Aires! Dennis’ riding is insane as always, check that last clip… WTF!
“The Nike BMX crew of Garrett Reynolds, Dennis Enarson, Chad Kerley, Nigel Sylvester and Kriss Kyle spent a week riding amazing spots in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Watch this video to see the guys put in work!”- Nike

Our very own East Coast ramp reaper, Josh Perry, has a bike check on up on Eastern Bike’s site where he goes over the finer details of his ride. Josh also has an interesting interview on “All it Is” where he goes over his tastes in BMX, beer, brauts and other fine german delicacies which you can read here. Be sure to click on both links and spend some time getting to know our good buddy Josh Perry. Photos by Darron Monroe
Mr. Doyle comes through with a short but sweet skatepark edit for his new clothing sponsor, Camp Three. Filmed at what I assume is an east coast indoor park but I guess it could be anywhere, park looks amazing though and you know Doyle had no problems shredding the shit out of it!
Christian runs you through his usual routine from waking up, riding, filming, ponging, clockin’ mad footy and more. Check it out!! Filmed and edited by Zach Krejmas
Watch this edit and learn why Enns doesn’t jump doubles and how he got exposed to the life of BMX in the first place. J sure knows how to tell a good story.
Connor Lodes, Kris Fox and Aaron Smith come together in this edit to introduce each of their new signature stems. Each guy has a totally unique style with a unique setup preference, so they each sat down and designed a stem that fits their style and rig setup just perfectly. Check out this edit and see what each of these guys brought to the design table and what makes each of their stems unique, and see which one fits your style best and then call your local dealer for more information.

For a few days last month Demolition’s very own trail guru, Chris Doyle, escaped the Pennsylvanian winter to take refuge in California’s sunny days, awesome spots and smooth trails. One of the days Chris was riding with good friend, Heath Pinter at his trials when Jason Enns came out to watch the session and ride some street afterward. During the trail session Jason grabbed his GoPro and shot a couple of rad photos of Doyle in action. You may have seen a few of these on our insta @DemolitionParts.com but if you haven’t or even if you have, be sure to click through these and check them out big because they are too rad not too!
I’ve been enjoying the Australian summer for a few months now and it’s been lovely. I’m almost rapped up filming with Cooper Brownlee. Real stoked on the things we have so far so I’m keen for everyone to check it out soon. It’s been fun living in Melbourne and exploring new spots and parks. It’s a sweet city and lots of good blokes to ride with. I’ll be back in the states in a month so looking forward to that and what the year has to bring!

If you haven’t already heard we are throwing a big jam at Krause family skatepark, aka Clairemont skatepark, to celebrate the release of our new spring product lineup. It’s going to be an awesome time hanging out, riding, and having fun so if you are looking for something to do on March 15th, look no further, come out to Krause family skatepark and shred with the Demolition crew!
Our very own Aaron Smith put together his 2nd edition to “Jerry’s series” and it definitely doesn’t let down. Riding From: Darryl Tocco, Lee Hopkins, Sean Sexton, Matty Aquizap, James Steele, Brian Hunt, Jake Patruchik, Webster Jake, Josh Lane, Rob Bottomly, Matt (Jerry) Busby, Aaron Smith, Jay Roe, & Trevor Ashworth. Shot & Cut By: Aaron Smith @asmithNH
I know, I know, this got posted a few days ago but if by chance you haven’t yet seen Jason Enns’ feature on THEDIGGEST.COM, you are missing out. If you also live under a rock and don’t follow @jasonenns on instagram then you may not know that he lives the life of a pool hunter, roaming through hollowed out relics from forgotten pasts in the desert. I’ve always wondered about all the crazy places Enns goes to find setups in the middle of nowhere and this feature gives some cool insight into where these places are, what happened while there, and what these places used to be before being hit by the decline of western civilization.
Kurt over at the BMX Union visited us at QBP’s annual big Frostbike 2014 to see what we had in store and see what was in the works. Check it all out at BMX Union HERE. Above pic is QBP’s exclusive colorway on our Trooper PC pedal and Missile Grip.
Well I was hoping that there would be a few edits out there from Simple Session 2014 finals and best trick contest but it looks like it’s still a bit too soon for those to be dropping so for now we will have this rad VitalBMX edit of the prelim highlights. Don’t get too bummed though because prelims at simple session is like finals at any other contest so you know the riding in this is completely insane. Demolition annihilators’ Tyler Fernengel and Mike Gray were on hand killing it the whole time, be sure to keep an eye out for their clip in this edit because they’re nuts!
As you may have heard, we are coming out with a ton of awesome parts in March and so we thought a big ass jam at an awesome park would be the perfect way for people to check out our new parts firsthand, and session the skatepark with their favorite Demolition rider at the same time. So if you are anywhere near the San Diego area on March 15th or if you’ve been looking for an excuse to come down to S.D. to ride, then make sure to come out to Clairemont Skatepark for our Demolition Parts Spring Release Jam on March 15th at 2pm! See you there and be sure to click on the post to check out the full flyer!
Kurt at the BMX Union just put up full specs and pics on all our new goods dropping in March. Be sure to get over there to see/ read what’s in store.
Demolition annihilator, Tyler Fernengel, just made it out to Estonia for this year’s Simple Session. Be sure to keep an eye out for Tyler’s runs because I’m sure they will be filled with giant transfers and absurd combos like this here smith to suicide. You gotta love this kid’s riding. Good luck out there Tyler!
If you’ve been paying attention to our social media sites, you might have noticed we’ve been pumping up all our new goods that are dropping in March. This is probably one of our biggest new product drops we’ve had in a long time. After the jump is everything that is coming in with a brief description.
You may have noticed in our March Goods post, that just went up on the site? This insane grind to turndown Biz is doing on an up-rail somewhere in Colorado. But if you didn’t, and even if you did I wanted you to see this photo a bit larger so we all can take in how sick this is!
I remember shooting this with Biz and the first try that he really cranked at the rail, he launched off the rail going at least two feet higher than previous attempts and I instantly thought I blew the photo because I was way too close for how high he was going. I shot the photo anyways and hoped for the best and to my amazement he wasn’t cropped out of the frame at all! So I always get stoked when I see this photo because I remember how lucky I felt the moment I first saw it and for how crazy a turndown this is out of a grind up a rail! For those reasons I just couldn’t help but post this by itself so it can get a little more love.
Jason has got a knack for finding the hardest things to ride and riding them better than anyone. This park is packed with fun things to ride but this bowl is a bit of pain in the ass. It’s about five feet tall and has a mellow transition but then kinks to vert six inches below the coping, making it a silent killer if your not careful! But leave it to Enns to take most peoples “sketchy setup” and turn it into an awesome bump jump quarter and then go ahead and do six foot tables out of it! Enns is the man!
We are proud to officially welcome Dimos Ganiatsas to the International Demolition team. Dimos will be representing Demolition in Greece thanks to our distributor, Ride On Distribution. For this edit, Dimos lays down some tech lines as well as some heavy rail moves in the streets of Greece. Be on the look out for much more from him in the future. Huge thanks to Makis at Ride On and everyone involved for making this happen. Check it out!
