STANLEY has entered into a global partnership with EXTREME, becoming their official supporting partner. STANLEY will sponsor 6 ambassadors spanning across Skateboarding, BMX and Freeride Mountain Biking. Driven by a spirit and passion to succeed in their sport, extreme sports athletes constantly aim to be at the top of their game, practising relentlessly to ensure that their every move and turn reaches the height of perfection. Whether scaling the steepest of walls, grinding the rails or performing the most spectacular stunts, every participant relies on their kit to be in the best possible shape before the competitive action begins. Getting the most out of life begins with the preparation. STANLEY is passionate about helping people to excel and giving them the tools that allow them to perform to the best of their abilities at all times. STANLEY tools will be dispatched to the athletes and their teams for the maintenance and tuning of essential equipment, including the athletes’ own skateboards and bikes – keeping them in the best condition during the events. In association with EXTREME, STANLEY can help these athletes to develop, grow and conquer the game. See the athletes in action here.
