“EL GATO” Eddie Elguera was an incredibly innovative vertical skater from the early 80’s. He pioneered tricks like the frontside rock n roll that were just mind boggling at the time. In the time just before Tony Hawk, Christian Hosoi, Steve Caballero and others of their ilk started to dominate, it was guys like “El Gato” and Duane Peters who were ruling the vertical game with innovation.” – Glen E. Friedman

“Great fit and best protection – that is why I am an S1 Lifer.” – Eddie Elguera

S1 Helmets/ Brett Ciabattini / S1 Lifer Helmet

Brett comes in for round two on another Colombian favorite. San Felix is one of the longest runs in Medellin with dozens of gentle sweeping corners and a few hairpins to keep you on your toes. The run is home to a few streams that flow right over the road at low points and wildlife soaking up the warmth of the pavement creating a few additional obstacles.
