K1X x CREATE Collabo 5-SPEED


STAR WARS COFFEE Hmmm. Get a taste of the Dark Side with this rich hand roasted coffee. Three diverse coffees and two different roasts create a fullbodied, sharp, cup with spicy undertones and smoky, dark-roasted complexity. Vader’s Dark Roast Coffee is commonly enjoyed by Dark Lords of the Sith while planning new Death Star construction, but give into your anger, sample a steaming cup and you will be rewarded with power beyond your imagination.

Bikes are still coming up, although we thought the climax was reached last year. The K1X 5-Speed Limited Edition joins the race to reach that turning point. Due to its SRAM 5-speed hub gears the new K1X bike rolls smooth like CL in his prime. And up-hill peddaling is easy like sunday morning. The K1X 5-speed was designed with the CREATE bike crew from London. It’s all in the details: some of the high-end components that were build in can’t be found in the regular CREATE bikes but were especially embraced for the K1X 5-Speed. Limited to 360 units worldwide, this creation has all the looks. CEO Chris Grosse: “It may look like a Fixie, it may talk like a Fixie, but it sure as hell don’t ride like a Fixie. This bike will leave a regular Fixie in the dust.” well let's see, what fixed answer you'll get. and selected stores

Stefan Marx’s Now board series is about Greek mythology—the supernatural power. He focuses on the Titan gods Perses, Menoitios and Astraois. Mythological tall tales of crazy stories…Like the time when Zeus killed Menoitios with a flash of lightning and banned him all the way to deep down Tartarus. Damn, these colourful visions don’t seem so bad, but Tartarus is an abyss used as a dungeon of torment and suffering residing beneath the underworld. Dig it.



The New Entry

Not bad, huhn? Laser-etched stainless steel blade with solid zinc-alloy chromium plated body!

Remember the old skate shop, record store or whatever location that bonded you and your friends together? Your hangout, the place you went to get away from it all and be with all of it. A spot where you & friends felt comfortable like a second hOme. That’s exactly the feeling home would like to transport. Anchored in the board sports lifestyle with extended views on fashion, they would like to offer a piece of hOme to everyone, even when your journey leads you to strange places. hOme features Swiss-made watches, spiced up with a neat range of accessories that tell a story. It is a story about time and space, about small things and big ideas, and how going places affects you, even if it’s just down the street. The connection to penguins will stay a myth though.

You’ve probably got to hand it to the invigorating serenity of the aged that it actually took the two heavyweights of the German streetwear game a while to finally join forces. 1994 wasn’t only an incisive year for music—Nas delivered the milestone for the hip-hop community with Illmatic while Portishead became an accidental mainstream phenomenon. It was also the year in which Frontline pushed the envelope by making the transition from musicmail-order to influential online-shop, while Iriedaily played for keeps by leaving simple merchandise behind in order to present their vision of a casual clothing line. Both companies were going the extra mile and blossomed into serious branches while maintaining their sense of integrity and a soft spot for DIY-culture ever since. To celebrate the 25th birthday of Frontline, Berlin’s finest asked creative office Brand New History to design a jacket for this particular occasion. Art-director Sascha Minde came up with a rather obvious yet very significant solution: he transformed the initials of both companies into a key to symbolize the, well, key to success while the jacket and its color-ways itself brilliantly underline the understatement these esprit de corps stand for. Frontline and Iriedaily. This time it’s not about making new friends, but remembering why the old ones are so awesome.
