Ethika, Travis Pastrana create signature line
Introducing the Pastrana collection
Legendary motorsports ambassador Travis Pastrana was the original Ethika athlete and been a part of the brand since 2001. And because Pastrana has so much history with the brand, the duo joined forces to create a signature Pastrana collection that explores the history of motocross. "Like Ryan Sheckler, Pastrana is one of the true original Ethika familie. If it wasnt for him, this dream we are living wouldnt be possible," says Ethika. What follows is an inside look at the new collection from Pastrana and Ethika.
"Travis Pastrana has impacted an entire generation of not only action sports enthusiasts but mainstream race fans as well," says Ethika. "He is a household name. The collection was designed by Mitchell Bailey, who comes from a legendary motocross family himself. And because Travis has so much history with the brand, we figured what better theme than to go back in history in the sport of motocross."
At home with Pastrana
"All five pairs were created with old motorcycle and moto gear designs in mind. It's also a big step for us in a hybrid performance panel design," says Ethika. "We launched a flow performance pair in the middle of 2015 that allows for maximum airflow. In the new Pastrana pairs, we created a hybrid of cotton and performance flow material that will truly allow the pairs to be worn in all types of activities without sacrificing any comfort."
Through the paces
Pastrana played a crucial part in a lot of the research and development of the original pair of Ethikas, a fit which hasn't changed, putting the product through the test in everything from the X Games double backflip to NASCAR.
Roots with Ethika
Pastrana wanted to combine a vintage look with new performance technology. Each pair has a breathable Ethika flow panel to ensure that the undergarments stay cool while remaining comfortable. The collection consists of five pieces paying tribute to the vintage roots of motocross.
Inside the Pastrana compound
Add up the stats, but the craziest fact of the life that is Travis Pastrana is that he's only a part-time moto rider. He's also a full-time rally car racer as well as a stuntman, monster trucker, flat tracker, and more. Basically, if it's got wheels, Pastrana will run it.
The Pastrana collection
The Pastrana Vintage collection is now available through the Ethika website and at select Ethika retail dealers.
