HAILING FROM PARIS, FRANCE, MATTHIAS IS A WORLD CHAMPION FLATLANDER, BUT WOULD SIMPLY PREFER TO BE CALLED A RIDER. HIS ABILITY TO RIDE WHATEVER HE WANT'S, IS WHAT KEEPS HIM LOVING LIFE ON AND OFF HIS BIKE. HE ALSO LOVES BEING ON THE ROAD AND IS PROBABLY THE BUSIEST RIDER IN EUROPE, ATTENDING CONTESTS AND PARTIES ALL OVER THE WORLD! HE WAS A GREAT ADDITION TO THE HARO TEAM BACK IN 2013 AND WE ARE PROUD TO BE RELEASING HIS SIGNATURE FRAME AND FORK
"LA BASTILLE"

"LA BASTILLE IS ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS SQUARES IN PARIS. IN THE 18TH CENTURY, "LA BASTILLE" WAS A JAIL THAT EMBODIED THE KING POWER IN FRANCE, BUT IN 1789, THEY BURNED IT DOWN DURING THE GREAT FRENCH REVOLUTION. NOW THERE IS A PERFECT RIDING SPOT WHERE THE JAIL WAS!"

"MY FAVORITE THING TO DO ON MY BIKE IS PEDALING AROUND A BIG CITY. HONESTLY I COULD SPEND THE WHOLE DAY RIDING AROUND PARIS, HOPING ON CURBS AND DOING ZERO TRICKS."

"WE WERE EITHER SKATING, RIDING BMX OR JUST DOING RANDOM KID SH!T. WE WERE SPENDING ENDLESS HOURS AT THE SKATEPARK OR IN THE PARKING LOT TRYING TO DO TRICKS. WE HAD NO IDEA WHAT WE WERE DOING. IT WAS THE DEFINITION OF FREEDOM FOR ME, AND SINCE THAT DAY IT NEVER STOPPED."

"I HAVE BEEN TO 51 COUNTRIES WITH MY BIKE. EVERYWHERE I TRAVEL I TRY TO GET A LIL TATTOO SOUVENIR. THERE IS A STORY BEHIND ALL OF THEM."

"I THINK THIS FRAME WILL SUIT EVERYONE HONESTLY. FROM THE VERY TECHNICAL FLATLAND RIDERS TO THE TYPICAL RAMP RIDERS... ALL MY FRIENDS THAT TRIED MY BIKE WERE BLOWN AWAY BY HOW RESPONSIVE AND FUN IT WAS."

"SINCE IT'S THE PLACE I SPEND THE MOST TIME AT, I COULDN'T THINK OF A BETTER NAME FOR MY FRAME. I REALLY LIKE THE FACT THAT THE NAME OF MY FRAME HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH REVOLUTION TOO."
