baby blue and brown: SE x oakley

(via se FB)
the 2011 revise of the retro pk ripper will feature one of the most recognized parts in BMX history- the oakley b1-b grip. formerly something like unobtanium, the oakley grip was damn hard to find, and hella expensive for NOS. but if you had them you were the SHIT. there will be 5 different colorways- 500 pairs will be made in each color. what excites me most is the announcement of the american only "all black everything" edition pk...

oh, what's this? oakley factory pilot gloves? if youve never tried their factory pilot (not to be mistaken with the sunglasses) gloves, then you may experience a sense of euphoria when you put these on. they shortened the cuff as well as perforated the knuckle pad (sorry, no carbon knuckles- this is old school factory pilot!) and a pretty cool nod to the b1-b grip on the index finger.

lest we forget, the sunglasses. donning blue and brown as well as the SE logo on the inside, they guys went with the timeless frogskin- note the era specific logo! they're only making 200 pairs, 100 worldwide, 100 in the us of a.

damn... i want them sunglasses.
