Mat Hoffman is a fearless, innovative, legend in the world of 20 inch bike riding. Mat was the first person I saw do a handrail on a bike. He did the first flip fakie. He created the standard for vert riding and he ruled vert for over a decade. I saw him try a tailwhip back flip on dirt in the early 90s when both flips and tailwhips were considered nearly impossible tricks. In 1992 Mat built a 20 ft quarter pipe and had a friend tow him with a motorcycle so he could set a world record (going over 20 ft out on a 20 ft ramp). When corporations abandoned BMX in the early 90s, Mat stepped in and founded one of the first rider owned bike companies. He also started an underground contest series that was pretty much the only game in town until he worked with ESPN to bring the sport back into the mainstream with the X-Games. BMX is a powerful, creative, badass, expressive, individual lifestyle and Mat Hoffman is BMX.
It’s hard to fully express how excited we are to have worked with Mat and punk art legend Chris Shary (he’s a whole other long winded paragraph) on this shirt. Thanks guys! -Charles Cardello/ Bifocal Media
