The amount of Canadian riders with signature parts today is slim to none. Sam Lowe is one of the few Canadian shredders who has been fortunate enough to have been given a signature bar from Primo, and recently signature grips from We the People (and by fortunate enough we mean he has been slaying rails and putting in work for more than long enough to have well deserved it). We hit up Sam about the process behind signature parts and also to get some insight as to why his signature parts are the way they are. Read on.
Seshin Bikes had a stacked Canadian team for years. Ted Efthymiadis had a skill for finding shredders across the country before they blew up, at a time where web edits were still at a minimum. Between 2001 to 2008 Seshin had a lineup consisting of Corey Dewey, Greg Flag, Jeff Evans, Zane Hudson, Dillon Lloyd, Drew Bezanson, Matt Walser, Sam Lowe, Brent Webb, Kean Fougere, Jared Chilko, Mark Lockhart, Andrew Gobbo and Steven Moxley.
