On a sunny autumn day in 1970, in a vacant lot in Long Beach CA, 14-year-old Scot Breithaupt-founder of SE Racing-organized the first-ever BMX race. Since then, BMX as a sport has exploded, but SE Bikes has always remained at the forefront, combining BMX Innovations with a love of the sport and all things Bike Life.
Honoring a legacy that is both innovative and timeless, the Vans x SE Bikes Kids Old Skool V pays homage to the PK Ripper, the signature bike of SE team rider Perry Kramer. With over 40 years of production, the PK Ripper is the longest running bike in the sport. A 16” version of the bike was also created called the LiL’ Ripper, giving youngsters the chance to ride like the legends. The Vans x SE Bikes Kids Old Skool V also features sturdy leather and textile uppers with a reflective checkerboard print at the sidestripes, double hook-and-loop closures, padded collars, and signature rubber waffle outsoles.
