Ryan Sheckler and Lume Cube have announced a partnership both on and off the skateboard as Ryan takes an equity stake in the lighting and accessory company
San Diego, California – December 21, 2015 – Lume Cube is proud to announce their partnership with world-renowned professional skateboarder Ryan Sheckler. Like the young lighting company, Ryan is known for pushing the boundaries of what's possible. He has pushed the boundaries of skateboarding from a very young age, and in 2003, at the age of 13, he became the youngest person ever to win an X Games Gold medal. Now 26 years old, he has grown himself into a globally recognized brand, continues to win at the highest level of skateboard competition, and stars in his own Red Bull TV series titled Sheckler Sessions.
When asked about the new partnership with the lighting and accessory company, Ryan stated “I am happy to be a part of Lume Cube because I think it is a really innovative light that can be used for anything! I can’t wait to experiment with all my Lume Cubes!”
Ryan and Lume Cube connect with the hope to change content creation forever. Ryan will use Lume Cubes to light the night when he skates, will incorporate the lights into his Red Bull TV series, and will help the brand become an overall lifestyle accessory. "We are extremely excited to welcome Ryan Sheckler to the Lume Cube family. Ryan is a high-caliber skater who has a relentless drive to succeed," said Lume Cube CEO Mornee Sherry. "He represents our brand's culture and vision. Through The Sheckler Foundation, he gives back to his community by positively influencing the lives of kids and action sports athletes who are injured. He is a true role model and a driven entrepreneur with a record of success on and off the board. We couldn’t be happier to bring Ryan on not only an ambassador for our brand but as an owner, who shares in our vision for Lume Cube's future".
