Whether experiencing a place for the very first time or revisiting a cherished city and its memory-triggering landmarks, the act of traveling often conjures a distinct emotional response (and perhaps even more so during a pandemic year that has halted most travel). For Dakota Roche, that city is Philadelphia, and those landmarks— both discreet and iconic—were a welcomed breath of fresh air after being homebound for most of 2020.
Together with Vans, Dakota made his way back to the City of Brotherly Love after an eight-year hiatus, and spent some time re-learning the ins and outs of spots that have held a special place in his heart since his pilgrimage there nearly 13 years ago.

Since 2016, the Union Cycliste Internationale and Hurricane Group have been working together to support the development of BMX Freestyle and offer the best conditions for progression to riders. The accomplishments achieved so far in both BMX Freestyle Park and Flatland, have encouraged both parties to continue their collaboration until 2028. Hurricane Group and the Union Cycliste Internationale announced today that they have signed a new collaboration agreement until 2028.

Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, listened to the BMX community and enlisted insight from Vans team rider Dakota Roche to help build the Slip-On Pro BMX, the first-ever Vans Slip-On to offer Wafflecup BMX technology. Considered one of the hardest working BMX riders out there today, Dakota’s unrelenting drive for street riding has bolstered his professional career and garnered many accolades over the past ten years. In need of a shoe that stands up to his riding, Dak worked with Vans on the Slip-On BMX Pro, featuring a striking two-tone black and white colorway with a black outsole.
“The Slip-On Pro has been my go-to shoe for riding, skating and chilling for some time now. In my mind,
“Titanium BMX products created to reduce weight, improve the resistance and increase your performance.” After a long career as an R + D + I (Research, Innovation and Development) engineer and industrial designer in the world of automotive, motorcycling as well as in product design, David Palau-Costa decided to start a project related to the passion that has accompanied him since he was a young boy: BMX.

However, since there is always room for improvement, he saw this as an opportunity to develop, innovate
