Spitfire has just put out a wheel designed by Lance Mountain to recognise the great work done by charity Skateistan, with proceeds from the wheel supporting their projects in various countries. Check out the video with Walker Ryan below as he discusses the charity and skates the streets of New York, another with the charity’s Kabul-based Communications Officer, then scroll down to read the press release proper.
The wheels are available in Skateistan’s online store now.
The new Spitfire X Skateistan wheel designed by skateboarding legend Lance Mountain, has been released to support Skateistan, an international non-profit organization using skateboarding to engage, educate and empower at-risk youth in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa.
Proceeds from the 53mm Formula Four Skateistan Benefit Editions are supporting Skateistan projects around the world.
For the release of the new collaboration, two videos will be unveiled. Spitfire rider Walker Ryan skated the streets of New York and sat down to share his thoughts and experiences on the work that Skateistan is doing, providing kids around the world with positive activities and access to education through skateboarding. Skateistan’s very own Communications Officer from Kabul, Hamdullah, also shares some of Skateistan’s activities through his camera lens.
Oliver Percovich, Founder and Executive Director at Skateistan says: “Can you think of a cooler collab!? Spitfire and Lance Mountain teamed up to support Skateistan with an incredible limited edition wheel. Grab yourself a set from our store and support Skateistan students all around the world!”
