Karl Poynter Off Eastern and Ezra 5
Karl Poynter has officially parted ways with his long-time sponsor Eastern, and affiliate components company Ezra. Get Karl's official statement below.
"I will be parting ways with both Eastern Bikes and Ezra BMX. Over the past couple of years you may have noticed a lot of cutbacks and changes happening under the Eastern roof. Unfortunately, all of that has caused it to be impossible for Eastern/Ezra and I to continue to work together. I felt very invested in these brands through all the good and the bad. Some of the changes and decisions made with the brands were not always in line with the direction I had hoped for or expected, but a rider can only have so much control. I can also say that the past four years I’ve had experiences I’ll never forget with traveling the world, meeting new friends, hanging with the team, and working on a few signature products. It’s been a fun ride and I’m thankful to have been a part of it. As this door closes, I’m excited to move on to the next. I’d like to say thanks to all of you out there who continue to support me in what I do. It really means a lot! With this news being unexpected and with no warning, I currently do not have any frame or parts sponsors lined up at this time." - Karl Poynter
