Product highlight – LFH Grips

Liam’s long awaited signature LFH grips have arrived in the country & will be available in stores across Australia this week. If you live outside Australia then expect them in your country in the weeks ahead.

The LFH grips are longer than the average grip to accommodate Liam’s massive hands & to be more in proportion to today’s wider bars. Made from a very soft, yet durable compound, these bad boys will serve you well. They also come with Colony push-in style plastic bar ends to finish off the package.

Brian Blyther… legend

I was so stoked to have met Brian Blyther in Vegas earlier this year. He is one of my earliest favourite riders ever. It was so cool to find him as a cool person as well to boot. So much so, that I told him I would honoured if he were to ride some Colony parts. With the help of Joel Gurga from Tip Plus, we hooked Brian up with a huge Colony package. He is now rocking almost every Colony part we make, stoked.

I hate Toormina…

Is something I’ve heard Shane Conlon say on occasion but I am sure he doesn’t really mean it. Since he is organising a comp there on December 12th, I guess he really does have a soft spot for the park. Check the flyer below for more details. See you there !!
