Nigel Sylvester Limited Edition
Professional BMX street rider Nigel Sylvester teams up with G-SHOCK to design a signature digital model that truly reflects his distinctive style.
A striking pure white band and case are accented by a black face with red characters, and the numerals 1987 (Nigel's birth year). The back cover of this model, which comes packaged in a uniquely designed can, features Nigel Sylvester's signature.
Born in Jamaica, Queens to Grenadian parents, Nigel Sylvester's life changed forever at the age of 11 when fate had him run across an X-games event on TV.
“I didn’t even know stuff like that existed,” recalls Sylvester, who went straight outside and started trying tricks on his bike. Which at times made him the target of derision among his contemporaries in his Jamaica, Queens neighborhood.
But Sylvester stuck with his new-found passion and went on to become the best BMX rider in the world, doing much to change BMX riding from a cult hobby into an internationally recognized sport.
Today, Sylvester is an internationally recognized icon who is setting the pace in the BMS biking world. “I know that once I do a trick, people are going to follow suit,” says Sylvester.
“I always want to be the first person to land a trick that hasn’t been done yet.”
