Style and flow…it’s what defines Billy Lewis as a rider. Whether it’s shredding the skateparks in Seattle or dirt jumps in the forests beyond, the Northwest-bred freerider throws tricks completely smooth and dialed.
Since digging his first dirt jumps in his yard at 10-years-old, to going pro on BMX, then making a name for himself internationally on 26 inches, Billy has never shied from progression. Riding bikes is in his blood. The proof is on his face. That smile’s contagious and his riding will stay with you. Because the kid attracts a crowd when he drops in, we had to put the Assault under him. The stunning features of the bike and Billy’s prowess on two wheels, are a match made in heaven. Sure, he can lay down a solid line on the big bikes too, but for freeride parks to street riding, his choice of steed is the Assault—because no other hardtail attacks with such style and grace.
