No more FC Honda, and I saw a few privateers that announced today they are no longer working with Alias moving forward.

What’s the deal?

Don’t piss off the old people - the older they get the less “life in prison” is a deterrent for them!

A few moths back somebody posted the same question because all their inventory was sold out. Tey actually responded saying they had just sold out sooner than expected, but they were not going out of business... All things now seem to point to they are though, from the outside looking in

Going to have to create a special Vital folder for all the memes and save them (Lloyd, DJ Khlaed, etc.)

OP, do a search on Alias, Geico-Shift. One of them has pretty good info from someone who I believe works/worked there or has info first hand.

I actually called them the other day. The gal that answered didn’t reveal a thing and said to “keep checking” for their new gear.

It does seem odd they can't get new inventory in quick enough.

Don't mean to hijack your thread but I heard Alloy might be done too.

There are more gear companies than riders in a gate at a race.

Wait so was this entire company for real just made for Grondahl? I mean I grew up racing and have heard of/seen some moto dads doing crazy shit for their kids but this seems pretty far out there

Hey, when you have the money, you have the money.

Now possibly going the golf route. That's not going to be a cheap venture. Upside, a lot more people play golf than people ride MX.

Back when I was racing I remember pulling up to a provincial race and I shit you not this kid on 50's and 65's was pitting out of a full blow race semi. Not sure what happen to that family. Pretty sure they stopped racing. Heard everything from he was a successful guy to he was involved in running drugs. Tricked out bikes and trophy wife lol.

Sybro on here might know who I'm talking about.

the Buttery Films dude was on his Instagram tanking them in like a goodbye kinda way.

As long as we don't lose No Fear and One Industries we'll be ok.

Those were cool brands in their time. So is Alias.

How long for JT?

Steve, do you know whose Aussie that is in the bottom picture?

I heard LBZ is coming back. I can't wait for the stars and stripes jersey. I really will rock that shit.

That's not far fetched. LBZ had a little EZ up in the pits at Anaheim with a bunch of clothes and beach cruisers.

I'd buy some SMP clothes. That was the coolest company of the 90s (minus the baggy pants). I guess some Aussie company bought the name and is selling lame t shirts.

Alias was a joke. They were doing 50% off everything website-wide....can you see Fasthouse doing that? And whos buying anything at full price when everything is 50% off every 2 weeks?

This was in Buttery's insta story. Sure seems like they're shutting down.

It'd be a bummer if they do stop producing MX gear, I love being able to get my name/number on the jersey right from the start. If they do go off into the sunset, I'd probably go back to Answer or Thor. Shift looks good, but its so damn expensive, plus I don't care much for parent company Fox.

alias always has awesome sales. I picked up a few high end kits for around 100 bucks.

5/23/2018 7:53 AM

It's a bummer deal, their pricing and styles are solid. They did have some similar designs to Seven but that happens across brands from time-to-time.

Aaaaaaaaaand they suddenly have zero gear at all now. Over the last couple of months, a set of the snow camo could be had, but now nothing and nobody answers the phone.

Yeah they closed.

Heard from a credible source that they already pulled out of the warehouse.
