Vans BMX proudly presents Courage Adams: Balanced, a new edit exploring the riding that has placed Courage on a path to success, steadily building his BMX career through hard work and dedication. Filmed in Africa, France, and Courage’s current homebase of Spain, Balanced reflects Courage’s global approach to BMX, including some of the locations that have defined his meteoric rise. Leading with his guiding philosophy, “Balance is key to life,” Courage has made a name for himself with his gift for unbelievable bike control, which is captured in this edit by director Rich Forne.
“Working with Courage on this project, I got to experience firsthand the jaw-dropping power and incomprehensible balance and imagination he brings to his riding,” Forne said. “Courage has no concept of limitation and is able to do whatever he wants on a bike so long as it is strong enough to keep up with his incredible vision.”
Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, is proud to unveil a new colorway of the Sk8-Hi® BMX created by Angie Marino, the perfect balance between BMX performance and a timeless design brought to life through the eyes of one of BMX’s most talented riders. Constantly pushing the limits of progression, Angie’s riding demands a shoe that’s as strong and as committed to BMX as she is. The Sk8-Hi® BMX meets those demands with Vans BMX Wafflecup™ construction for maximum pedal feel and durability. For her take on the silhouette, Angie worked with Vans to bring in her personalized floral art and soft tones, which also carry over into a curated apparel collection.
The Sk8-Hi BMX by Angie Marino features PopCush™ footbeds for maximum energy return and a DURACAP reinforced rubber underlay to protect high-wear areas. A protea, her favorite flower, come to life in a tonal deboss on the heel counter and in soft peach and earth tones on the outsole.
“I chose a flower as a soft representation of how I currently see the women's BMX scene— it's in full bloom and not slowing down,” Angie said. “The Sk8-Hi BMX is one of my favorites to ride in. The extra ankle support at the top makes a world of difference for riding.”
Angie and Vans are also excited to present her first-ever apparel collection with the brand, including a lightweight short sleeve boxy tee and boxy hoodie incorporating a similar color palette and hints of floral that take cues from her favorite season to ride: Spring. Both pieces are finished with Vans’ Checkerboard detailing, and Angie’s signature on the hoodie’s sleeve.
We are really excited to present you the first episode of the « Vans Tribes Project » that is taking place in the BMX Mecca, Barcelona.

Vans BMX is proud to unveil its latest three-part film series, Live Fast, highlighting Vans team riders Corey Walsh, Trey Jones, Jason Watts, Dennis Enarson and Gary Young, as well as Kris Fox and Matt Cordova from Fast and Loose BMX. The film takes its cues from life on the road, visiting a slew of backyard pools and bowls frequented by skaters, but seldomly seen in BMX clips.
Vans BMX partnered with renowned filmer and editor Chris Gregson to capture the free spirit of the tightknit crew in this latest compilation as they search out the best bowls, backyard pools and rideable terrain while visiting legendary spots like Ohio’s Skatopia. Live Fast marks some of the first times BMXers were granted access to film in these locations.
“I think the BMX community will be shocked by all the spots they got to ride, but skaters will be able to
This goes hard! The Vans Canada BMX team took to the West Coast of Canada to explore Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast, some of Canada's most spectacular landscapes, and untapped spots.
Vans BMX is proud to announce the newest member of the Global BMX family, Corey Walsh. A critical part of the Vans Canada team since 2015, Corey’s unmatched pool and bowl riding has captured the attention of the BMX community the world over. Hailing from Ontario, Canada, Corey’s teenage years were spent as an Olympic hopeful for the Canadian Cycling team, before he graced his first US contest in 2014, making a name for himself by winning the Gauntlet of Death event—an obstacle course where the first rider to make it through wins. As a result, he landed a spot on the Cult team that same weekend, and shortly thereafter, was welcomed onto the Vans Canada team.
“Riding for the Vans Family has always been a dream. Crazy to think where riding a small bike can take
Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, is excited to announce The Circle – Vans’ digital street video competition – is back and bigger than ever. First introduced on a European level in 2020, the online competition gave BMX shops across the region the chance to film a team edit, celebrating their riders and the local communities. This year, three global guests have joined the European crew and will all compete to win a share of the €20,000 prize pot.
The concept remains the same. Each invited shop receives a budget to help cover the costs of filming and editing their team video. Then they have two months to pull together an edit worthy of the top prizes.
