To celebrate the brand’s launch, they have just dropped a killer introduction edit featuring their three first pros, editing by the one-and-only Dom West. It’s a well-deserved endorsement for Drumm, who is without a doubt one of the best skaters in the country, and arguably the world.
The Go Project looks like they are going about it the right way, too. Instead of having a traditional “team” of skaters, they sponsor people on a per product basis. They pay the skaters upfront for the pleasure and the good news for Drumm is, all profits for the first production run of bearings will end up in his pocket!
Here’s what Go Project have to say about Gavin Drumm’s new pro bearings:
“Gav Drumm’s skating is fluid and technical. Go Project Gavin Drumm skate bearings’ low torque and high tolerance are perfect for a heavy vertical load-bearing sport like inline skating.
“They use seven Chrome Steel ball bearings protected by a single sided Nylon shield. Nylon does not dent like metal compounds. This, combined with the single shielded design means that the ball bearings are less likely to be crushed or caught between dented shields.
“Go Project does not use the generic ABEC scale to rate bearings because of its irrelevance to the specific tolerances imposed by inline skating, where quality of manufacturing and materials far surpass theimportance of a rating based upon ‘revolutions per second’. Gav’s bearings simply have a Speciality Rating of 4/5 which represents their performance when used as a skate bearing.”
Go Project Gavin Drumm bearings and other products are available in Australian retailers now. For more on the Go Project, check their official website.
