Haro Bikes is pleased to announce the launch of the latest installment in their history series - Haro Bikes – The Rise of BMX Freestyle – Volume 2, written by author Dom Phipps taking place at House of Vans London on Saturday 13th December. Haro Bikes - The Rise of BMX Freestyle - Volume 2, is a 176 page book written and researched by author Dom Phipps. “Rise 2” rejoins the Haro story in early 1987, shortly after Bob Haro had negotiated the sale of the company to the mighty West Coast Cycle distribution empire. During that negotiation, a stipulation agreed on by all parties, would be Bob Haro and Haro Vice President Jim Ford’s commitment to lead the company into an exciting new era. Both Haro and Ford would agree, and the future looked brighter than ever.
A new product on the market, the social media glove. Not that the Mujjo glove is called like that but that's how we dubbed it. It's getting cold out there and these gloves are designed to work the phone without having to take them off. That's handy as we want to keep you updated on everything BMX even when it's cold and we're stuck outside.
The Mujjo glove is comfy because of the fleece liner inside. It's got the style because of the leather wrist closure and cuff. The button was tough to close/open but hopefully that was just because they were new and it'll get better as winter moves on. The Mujjo has grip dots in the palm but not really on the finger tips. Ours came in black. The only right choice for winter gloves. At least if you don't like washing them every week.
