Re-Up: Alex Platt’s Welcome to Volume Edit

Kevin | 03.5.15

With “The Finer Things” finally out, it’s just reminded me of how awesome of a team we have here at Volume. It’s something that’s really easy to forget while being in the office day in/day out.  So, I was going back checking out our rider’s past edits and came across Alex Platt’s “Welcome to Volume” edit from close to 2 years ago. Alex Platt’s section in “The Finer Things” is easily one of my personal favorite parts. Every time he started pedaling, I couldnt help but edge closer in my seat wondering if he was going head-on into a wall or destroying a rail hop or gnarly grind. Definitely reminded me of the good ol’ Jimmy Levan days. Alex is a machine, and this welcome edit was a good foreshadow of what we were all in store for almost 2 years later. Check it out!

Right when you think you’ve seen it all from Alex Platt, he comes out like a bat out of hell to scare the living shit out of you on some wild move.  His style is all out or nothing and if he isn’t scared of the trick, it’s not worth doing to him.  Think his RIDE Defining Things video says that too.  Photo above by Joey Cobbs is of Alex getting a gap to manual while filming with Mike on The Finer Things.  Get the full poster for a penny here>>

Alex Platt’s “Defining Things” Video.

Mastroni | 02.4.15


From broken arms, shoulders, wrists, kneecaps and various other body parts, nothing can stop Platt. This is just a small glimpse into what Platt has gone thru over the course of the couple years filming for his DVD section accompanied with some hospital footy and various B roll from our time filming together courtesy of Ride.

The Finer Things: A Finer Saturday With Platt, Broc, Krejmas, & Josh.

Mastroni | 12.21.14

Been pretty hyped on using a real camera that isn’t an iPhone and taking some blog photos. So, here’s a first hand look at what a typical Saturday out filming with us is like. We cut down a tree limb to mount a camera, made a lot of people cry on Instagram, filmed an amazing Platt clip, went on a few wild goose chases for potential spots, and ended up finding DeMarcus’ secret candy stash in a high school trash can. All in a days work right? CLICK IMAGE TO EXPAND GALLERY.

Alex Platt Hanger Wallpaper

I know we already put up this switch hanger of Platt with our #ineedabikevolume giveaway post BUT we thought we’d give it some more shine time, cause it’s just that crazy for a couple different reasons.  One would be that it’s on our entry level complete bike that Alex never rode before this photoshoot and two being that it’s a f-n switch hanger on a legit/ steep rail.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Alex Platt is a maniac on a bike…. Maybe off it too?

The pool? Yeah actually Enns probably rides enough crazy pools all the time to write a book about it. This time however he brought Alex Platt, Vicente, and Myself along for the ride to check out a pool he’d been to once before with Rooftop in hopes of filming some stuff for his upcoming Cerberus frame promo (due out this coming week!) Here’s a crazy pocket air coupled with my extremely armature photography skills. More (better) photos below… more

Poster Dissection: Alex Platt

All or nothing! Full speed, big gap to hanger in typical Alex Platt fashion. One of the craziest tricks in our poster and can just see how gnarly this pic really is. Bahlman holding onto the rope to make the rail not as shaky definitely adds to it all too.  Gotta love Platt!  Pic by Joey Cobbs.  Click pic to go BIG.
