Akademiks Clothing Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary With the Sponsorship of Bulldog Bikes
Akademiks, the clothing brand in the street and lifestyle arenas, is celebrating their 10 year anniversary with the recent sponsorship of Bulldog Bikes. As the two brands have a strong focus on positive youth originality and individualism with a street edge, a collaboration made sense. With the reshaping of the Akademiks brand, styles such as slim denim fits and aggressive washes lead to a genuine match with the Bulldog riding team.
Founded in 1999 on the principles, “in the pursuit of truth”, Akademiks mission is to inspire and lead the youth fashion revolution. This movement challenges authority and social standards with a loud voice, creativity and energy that is translated into a fashionable aesthetic. From its inception, Akademiks has carefully crafted clothing for the denim enthusiast who craves quality and detail.
Bulldog Bikes Inc. was founded in New York City, in 1998 by Jimmy ‘Mac’ McNeal, an African-American rider and bike designer. Bulldog is a multicultural company built from blending the energy and culture of hip-hop and punk rock with the passion and edge of BMX and action sports, making them the first and only multicultural bike company in the history of BMX. The Bulldog rider team is made up of about 20 riders in the dirt, park, street, flatland, race and flow fields. Some exciting events coming up for Summer 2009 include the Dew Tour, LG Games and a partnership with Make a Wish Foundation.
