GT Bicycles, Our Legends and Union Los Angeles, collaborated on a apparel collection and a limited-edition GT Pro Performer 26” complete. The exclusive bike, presented by Our Legends and Union, pays tribute to the heritage of the iconic GT brand while being fashion-forward enough to catch the eye of the streetwear customer. This is the type of stuff we here at SugarCayne.com love to see!
Over the last year, Our Legends has designed a wide collection of t-shirts, sweat shirts, hats, and socks featuring historic GT BMX logos. These items have brought back the nostalgia of long-time GT BMX fans and athletes, while also captivating a younger generation who love the throwback culture. This new limited-edition Pro Performer will continue to do the same. “GT is nothing short of an icon,” said Our Legends. “We wanted to bring our favorite era of GT BMX back into the mainstream with our apparel.
This new Pro Performer brings it all to life. I grew up with a love for GT BMX and riding bikes,” added Chris Gibbs, owner of fashion retailer Union. “Everyone can relate to riding bikes, and not only is GT iconic, but it’s bike designs are classic, and we wanted to give our customers that familiar feeling, but also give the collection and the bike some fresh updates.” The GT Pro Performer 26” bike presented by Our Legends x Union reflects the look and feel of today’s streetwear-fashion consumer but is also a nod to GT’s Southern California roots.
“We teamed up with Our Legends and Union to design a Pro Performer that
compliments the capsule collection,” said Ben Ward GT BMX Product Manager. “We zeroed in on the peach colorway from years past, and we let that guide the custom checker board peach saddle along with the custom peach GT Logo pedals and Super Soft grips. In the end, we have an incredible classic looking bike with just enough pop to grab attention.”
