The 2014 United x Etnies Recruit. After what we did with the 2013 Recruit, improving it for 2014 was not going to be easy. We looked long and hard, and by tweaking a couple of areas we feel we have managed to do just that. We started by taking the bullet proof ultra loud fully sealed cassette from our Supreme line and put this on our entry level bike, we added a nice taper to the forks, improved the stem, and tightened up some of the geometry on the handlebars and frame to make this a perfect fit for that younger entry level rider.

For it’s first release we have teamed up with Etnies and through our shared pool of progressive riders Corey Martinez, Nathan Williams & Geoff Slattery we are offering the bike in three primary tones with bright pops of colour, and an entire collection of footwear and apparel, the United Colors of Etnies.
