Cooper Brownlee – Ten Clips

Next up in our Ten Clips video series, is our own team manger, art director, photographer, videographer & all round nice guy, Cooper Brownlee.

Product highlight – Twenty Four Seven Bars

Cooper Brownlee has been graced with his first signature product in the way of his own bars. Aptly named because if you know Cooper, you know that his life is BMX 24/7. He never stops. Whether it’s behind the camera, in front of the camera, behind the laptop & on the bike. Cooper lives & breathes BMX. It’s for this reason we all love him.

Measuring in at 8.75″ high, 29.5″ wide with 12 degrees back sweep & 1 degree of up sweep, the Twenty Four Seven Bars should tick all the right boxes. Check them out at your nearest Colony dealer in Australia & the USA now with other countries very soon.
