Cypress, CALIF. (March 13, 2017) – Vans celebrates its long-lasting BMX heritage with the debut of the Style 112 Pro in team rider Dakota Roche's signature colorway. Available now, the Style 112 Pro is built with proven Vans UltraCush technology to fit the demands of BMX's heaviest street rider, Dakota Roche.

 

Dakota Roche's signature Style 112 Pro is featured in the Vans California Native Collection, designed in black suede and a contrasting burnt olive Sidestripe. Built with Vans' original waffle outsole and Duracap reinforced uppers, this silhouette delivers unrivaled durability and a firm no-slip grip. The Style 112 Pro was inspired by feedback from the Vans BMX team, employing Vans Vulc Lite construction and UltraCush HD sockliners to keep the foot close to the pedal while providing the highest level of impact cushioning needed for Dak's unforgiving riding style.

"Riding is tough on my body, but I'm grateful I have gear that I can trust to get me through it all." – Dakota Roche, Vans BMX Team

 

With the Vans BMX family since 2010, Dakota's style is often portrayed as "skateboarding on a bike." His relentless and innovative riding earned him Ride BMX Magazine's 2015 Street Rider of the Year award, followed by a heavy ender part in Vans' 2016 Illustrated video. With an endless list of contest results, awards and video parts, Dak's powerful riding continuously pushes the boundaries of BMX.

Dakota Roche's signature Style 112 Pro is available online and in-stores now, in addition to the rest of the Vans California Native Collection, a collection of footwear and apparel endorsed by Dakota Roche including a Sk8-Hi Pro, signature burnt orange beanie, Torrey jacket and Clamber Backpack.
