Raleigh x We Were Rad Collab – 10-2022

We were invited to work with Raleigh UK on the launch of the 40th Anniversary of the Tuff Burner. We took part in two days of photo and video shooting to create promotional material that was used to launch this iconic bike. We were very excited to be working with such a prestigious brand as Raleigh UK, as they had such a strong impact on the three of us growing up in Britain.

As part of our collaboration with Raleigh, we were invited to record a podcast with Raleigh BMX legend Jason Boness.
