SE Bikes teams up with Oakley on a special capsule collection for 2011, set to his retailers in at the beginning of the new year. Featured in the set will be a set of Oakley B1-B grips, a pair of SE x Oakley Factory Pilot gloves, Oakley Frogskins sunglasses, and a SE PK Ripper Looptail. More complete information on the entire initiative, price updates, and release dates are offered below.
The much sought after Oakley B1-B re-issue grips will be outfitted on SE’s 2011 retro PK Ripper Looptail bike. Oakley is releasing this famous grip for the first time since the mid 80’s. If you didn’t know, Oakley started making BMX & MX grips long before they ever made sunglasses. This new re-issue run of the B1-B grips will consist of five different colorways with only 500 pair of each color being produced. But the 2011 PK Ripper Looptail will come with a VERY exclusive color of black-on-black that is not available anywhere else. Only 200 of this limited edition bike will be available in the USA this year.
The PK Ripper Looptail will be available in the USA at select SE retailers in February 2011 with an MSRP of $700
To coincide with the grips, SE & Oakley have joined forces to create the SE x Oakley Factory Pilot glove. This “Team Fit” glove dons the classic SE Racing & Oakley Factory Pilot logos. But the cool factor does not stop there. This glove has a short & tight cuff for greater wrist articulation, a perforated thumb knuckle pad, out turned seams on the fingers, and “B1-B” grip inspired finger grippers for excellent adhesion to the grips.
The SE x Oakley Factory Pilot gloves will be available in the USA at select SE retailers & at www.BUYSESTUFF.com in April 2011 with an MSRP of $30
Of course a collaboration project with Oakley would not be complete without a collab pair of sunglasses. And what better glasses to join the two original brands together than the Oakley Frogskins? That’s right, Oakley has acquired SE’s blue & brown colorway & famous “SE Racing” logo & combined them with the most famous sunglasses of all time, the Oakley Frogskins. These glasses are SUPER limited with only 200 pair available worldwide & available strictly through SE retailers. One hundred pair have been sent to select SE distributors across the globe & the other 100 pair have stayed in the USA.
