bmx dunks

With the introduction of BMX at the Beijing Olympics, Nike is releasing special edition Dunks to commemorate the event. The Nike Dunk Gyrizo (Greek for “wheel”) ($TBA), will feature a design with internal plates that are optimized to transfer peddling power for BMX riders. We’re talking Kevlar laces, metal grommets, and velcro straps to keep those laces out of those spokes while you’re pulling off a 540 Cabellero.
