Featuring “USA” across the chest, vertical red and white stripes, and columns of stars on a dark blue backdrop, the SKINS jersey offers a clean, retro look – “stars and bars” design is reminiscent of the U.S. kits from the 1984 Olympics.

Inspired by the sport’s roots, the BMX kit is a flashback to the 1970’s when kids raced Southern California dirt tracks in three-quarter sleeved baseball tees. The jersey’s rugged design features a white body, navy sleeves, “USA,” and an eagle whose red outline grips the handlebars of a BMX bike. The kits were custom fitted for each individual BMX team member.
