“We all know there’s nothing like the feeling of wind in your hair when you’re tearing down the road at top speed, but for safety-conscious cyclists, helmets too often get in the way. The Bern Allston Helmet ($90) has 16 vents throughout the helmet and a removable liner system that lets your head actually breathe. In addition to superior ventilation, this helmet weighs a scant 13 ounces, making it considerably lighter than most bike helmets, while still maintaining structural rigidity. It’s available in several colors, including black, gray, white, and green, and comes with a bill to keep sun and rain out of your eyes.”

Allston Launch Party Recap

First off we want to give a huge thanks to our friends and family in our home city of Boston for always coming out and representing at our parties in town. The Allston Launch Party was no exception, our first bike specific party for our first bike specific helmet and the Boston cycling community showed up in droves.

We held the party in the infamous Allston neighborhood we named the helmet for and it was clear the local community was proud to celebrate its namesake helmet’s launch. The poster child for the Allston helmet none other than Corey The Courier made a special appearance, as well the team from Boston Collective Delivery, and Bern snowboarder Johnny Deuplisea.

We sent Leo Lydon off on his cross country trip in style, he opened the party with a special live set. Follow his progress on Instagram and Twitter with the #3600withbern hashtag. Special thanks to Brendan from Society Original Products, and Kristyn from Vita Coco for supporting the party with tons of giveaways and delicious drink specials! A huge thank you to Common Ground bar for hosting us, next time you are in Allston be sure to check it out. Check out the party photos below! We will see ya at the next Bern party.

The Retreat

TACOMA, Wash. (July 2, 2013) – Skatelite, manufacturer of the world’s premier skate ramp surface materials, today announced plans for The Retreat, a skate and BMX festival featuring more than 15 of the world’s top pro athletes. The Retreat is a mix of a jam session with the athletes, a party and a vacation for legendary and groundbreaking skaters and BMX riders to kickback and let loose after the frenzy of the competition season. The event is free to the public and offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to skate, ride and rub elbows with the pros that built and are defining the future of their sports.

To date, athletes confirmed for the event include: Bob Burnquist, Bucky Lasek, Pierre-Luc Gagnon, Paul Rodriguez, Lincoln Ueda, Manny Santiago, Jett and Jagger Eaton, Mat Hoffman, Ryan Nyquist, Dennis McCoy, Chad Kagy, Zack Warden, Simon Tabron and Steve McCann, with more to come.

Guests who plan to attend the The Retreat can make a weekend out of it by staying at Camp Skatelite, a 40-acre field with its own 35-foot mini ramp, a nightly bonfire and amenities designated just for the event. Guests who arrive on August 17 can skate and ride with the pros during open sessions, and enjoy music, films and food. Festivities begin at 9 a.m. with the dedication of a new skate park that Skatelite is donating to the island residents. California RampWorks, the builder behind the ramps at every major international competition will bring up their vert ramp directly following the X Games in Los Angeles for the athlete sessions at The Retreat.

Music begins at 6 p.m. with live performances by The Good Husbands, The Blue Scholars, several DJs and a special guest that alone is worth the trip. Free parking and shuttle transportation for ferry walk-ons will be provided by Skatelite from downtown Anacortes to the ferry dock and from the Lopez ferry terminal to The Retreat (held at the Lopez Island Community Center) and Camp Skatelite.

Skatelite is a division of Richlite Co., a family-owned Tacoma, Wash.-based manufacturer, celebrating its 70th year of operation in 2013. Skatelite is a weatherproof, durable paper-composite material that has been manufactured in Tacoma since day one. Today Skatelite is recognized as the preferred ramp surface material used in every major international skate and BMX vert and park competition and by top pros in their personal ramps.
