Professional BMXer and Go! star Nigel Sylvester has signed with Jordan Brand, making him the Jumpman’s first BMX athlete. Though Sylvester kicked his partnership with the Jumpman off via a highly desirable Air Jordan 1 collaboration in 2018, he’s now an official member of Team Jumpman, joining other recent signees like Stefon Diggs, Dak Prescott and Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

“The Jumpman is a way of life,” Sylvester said during an interview with the brand’s Air.Jordan blog. “It’s a mindset that represents courage, determination and community, amongst so many other things. The Jumpman is a constant evolution that inspires millions around the world.”

Besides his distressed, Frank Cooke-designed Air Jordan 1 in 2018, Sylvester has long enjoyed a fruitful relationship with Jordan Brand, wearing the Air Jordan 1 “Bred” in his Go! Dubai video and also biking in grail-status sneakers like the Air Jordan 1 “Rust Pink.” Before Jordan Brand, Sylvester was a Nike 6.0 athlete, collaborated with Nike SB on an SB Dunk High “SOMP” in 2014 and teamed with Nike Sportswear for special patent leather Air Force 1s in 2018.

Check out Nigel Sylvester’s full Air.Jordan interview on the Jordan Brand blog and be sure to check out his installment of Sole Mates, in which he discusses his lifelong love of the Air Jordan 1.
