After “taking the collab “to another level” with their 2012 Supreme SU2 x etnies complete just a couple of months back, United has returned with another rad project. Their 2013 KL40 model is the target of their collaboration with energy drink giant Red Bull in honor of the epic Empire of Dirt contest returning for 2013. Here’s what United had to say about the United x Red Bull KL40 Complete:
“To celebrate the Red Bull Empire Of Dirt returning for 2012, we have teamed up with Kye Forte and Red Bull to produce an extremely limited edition of United x Red Bull KL40 complete bikes. and for the first time ever you can get your hands on a bike with officially endorsed Red Bull Empire Of Dirt graphics.
We used the brand new 2013 KL40 model and then tied in Red Bull Empire Of Dirt branding, by using grey sidewall United tyres, colour matched grips, anodized red rims and seat clamp which all finish this bike off with a look way beyond it's price tag. Available from the end of April 2012 in the UK only.
The previous Red Bull Empire Of Dirt event in 2008 was feted by pro riders as the most progressive event the BMX world had seen, so this is sure to be a welcome return.
Kye Forte has been busy designing an amazing, challenging course and is excited for this year's event which will take BMX to the next level.”
