SKIDSVILLE

Ricordate quella sensazione di spingere sulle gambe per la prima volta? Era un fulmine a ciel sereno che spalancava le porte dalla nostra infanzia. Se fino a prima camminavamo su due gambe come il resto dei mortali, da quel giorno in poi avremmo pilotato razzi su due ruote alla fine del vialetto. Era come entrare a far parte di un mondo più grande, più audace.

Dopo il successo della serie Dreamride, Diamondback affida nuovamente a Juicy Studios e Mike Hopkins il commercial per il lancio del modello Release Carbon. Welcome to Skidsville. Population: all of us.


Remember…
Doin’ Skids
The brick and board booter we named the “Scab Maker”
When street chalk started measuring street cred
Wheelies
Stunt lids
Your paper route
The things we’d do for a banana split

Remember…
The crew
Looking for trouble
Getting lost
The adventures

Bottom line: bikes are awesome, and they’ve been that way since the beginning.
Meet the newest addition to our family… the Diamondback Release Carbon.


There’s a reason we all love bikes. Because bikes are awesome.
