SX2 and Concept California Are Teaming Up

SX2 and Concept California Are Teaming Up

June 16, 2017

Concept California is stoked to partner with professional volleyball players Sam Pedlow and Sam Schachter to design their team’s line of hats - The “SX2”

When we asked Sam and Sam what they looked for in gear they said, “Look Good, Feel Good, Play Good.” We knew this partnership was going to be like a buttery set on an open net.

Sam and Sam are in the top 20 global beach volleyball pairs and their play is the perfect balance between aggressive and strategic. They wanted the same from their hats. We worked together to design a concept that has the classic sporty cuts of a ball cap, with upgrades like grip strips on the sweatband and laser cut air holes in the healable microfiber. Of course we worked in a shout-out to their hometown of Toronto, who they represent every time they hit the sand. 

 

 

Every year is crazy on the world tour,” Sam Pedlow told us. “Ten to twelve countries over the course of five to six months, sometimes a new city every week. It’s a wild ride.”

Oh, hey, we're hopping aboard!

“Our motivation is to always be improving and compete against the best in the world,” Sam Schachter added. “I feel we can be the best in the world and we want the world to take notice.”

Coincidentally, our gear also wants to be the best - it tells us everyday.

Where to Find SX2

We look forward to tracking Sam and Sam on the FIVB in Long Beach and Vienna this summer and over they next few years during the lead up to the 2020 Olympics.
