Jonny Devine update…

Jonny sent over some photos from a session he had over at his grandad’s barn where they have a few ramps set up, no doubt it’s crazy cold over there at the moment so riding inside must help keep the guys sane over there in England.

One year to the day…

Today is exactly one year to the day, that I made it official & Colony became an independent company. It has been an amazing past year & we have come a long way. All this could not have been made possible without everyone’s support out there.

So, I would like to thank all our team riders, our employees, our distributors, our loyal shops all over the planet, our agent & suppliers in Taiwan, the websites & magazines that gave us coverage & last but not least, every single rider out there that has supported Colony in some way. Thanks to anyone that has ever bought one of our products, come riding with us or was just down with what were about. Thank you.

2010 is gonna be a banger of a year for us & I can’t wait to show the world what Colony is capable of. Word.

Jamssss.

It just happened to work out that I was going through the small town of Kempsey (NSW) when their jam was on yesterday so I stopped in for a bit and had a roll and watched everyone shred. It was good to see a small town putting on a cool day with a bunch of riders making a fair trip out to be there. Thanks to Brodie for the photos.

Guettler checks in…

Guettler is back in Brisbane now & wrote this little update on what he has been up to of late…

So after Xmas and new years, Vans invite me to there zoomys 100k, which is a huge awards party up in the SNOW, (This is my 2nd time ever seeing snow by the way) I go up there with Jerry badders, Nasty and Steve Van Doren. We play in the snow Nasty & I tried to snowboard for a while which was so funny. Then the night of the big party was amazing, we got to hang out with Snoop Dogg and PJ Penn and Dustin Dollin (everyone was there ) it was a very fun night.

Then the next day I flew home to Australia and meet up with the Colony crew and Richo takes me straight to the trails, we have been filming a lot so wait for an edit to come soon. But now I’m home and having a blast. It was crazy going from snowboarding with Nasty one day to riding trails, getting sun burnt with Richo the next hahahaha such a great time…

Product highlight – Clone Hub Guards

Our Clone Hub Guards have been out for a little while now but are the best way to protect your rear hub & spokes from grinding abuse. The best bit is there is no need to spread your frames rear end to fit it all in, you simply replace your non driver side cone nut. We offer them in all our 2010 colours.
