As part of DC's ongoing '30 Years of Radness' bike campaign, the skate brand has once again tricked out a SE Racing PK Ripper ride, this time giving it a fixie feeling! The brands have collaborated to produced a limited edition BMX and Quadangle in the past, but it's the PK Fixed Gear that will ultimately be off the bike chain! The bike’s Matte Black and Ball Burnished Silver colorways will both be limited to only 1,250 each worldwide. The bike will be available for $1,000 at select boutiques and specialty bike shops worldwide. More details below.
DC X PK RIPPER X SE RACING - FIXED GEAR
The Fixed Gear collaboration mixes a touch of '70s bike nostalgia with modern bike performance features. Inspirations for the PK Ripper Fixed Gear bike‘s design aesthetic stem directly from the original DC x SE Racing PK Ripper collaboration. The new fixed gear bike design details are directly inspired from the classic PK Ripper BMX bike, complete with Floval tubing, Landing Gear fork and Looptail rear end. This blend of old school BMX and a modern fixed gear bike not only takes its cues from the PK Ripper BMX construction but also its colorways—Matte Black and Ball Burnished Silver.
DC and SE Racing first joined together in 2007 for their exclusive limited edition project '30 Years of Radness.' The project honoured 30-plus years of BMX history, and DC and SE Racing celebrated with a re-release of the PK Ripper bike in its original aesthetic for an exclusive limited edition quantity. In 2008, DC and SE Racing joined forces once again with the release of the DC x SE Racing 24” Quadangle. The Quadangle, or the Quad Looptail as it was known, was a '80s freestyle classic, and for the second collaboration DC and SE Racing re-released the BMX bike in for the first time ever, in a 24” version the same classic frame.
