Red Bull Ride + Style debuted in San Francisco in 2011 as a "rideable art installation." The concept of combining fixed gear racing and freestyle together with top street artists brought a visually stunning event to the city center. Riders descended on San Francisco from around the world to compete in the first event of its kind, bringing the international athletes together for a collaborative and progressive day of riding. Red Bull Ride + Style is an opportunity for not only the riders to make a statement on a global scale, but the artists as well. Now in its third year, the event at Justin Herman Plaza attracts world renowned artists such as Risk, Insa, Tristan Eaton and Sam Flores, who will bring the course features to life through their iconic art; and now it's up to the world's best riders to add their own creativity to the installation.

To go with this awesome event, Chrome will be once again releasing a special riders bag with collaboration of world renowned graffiti artist's Risk, Insa, Tristan Eaton, and Sam Flores. We will also be hosting a Chrome Pits area, set up for a spectator and fan friendly meet-and-greet riders area. If you show up for another historical moment of Urban Bike and Fixed Freestyle, be sure to look out for a very limited run of our new Wrenched mag for Ride and Style. May 4th, 2013. Be there. Justin Herman Plaza. SF.
