Matt Coplon's Skavenger Hunt - Win a Custom Profile Hub
An original prototype could be yours...
15 Jun 2018
Official DIG Partners: PROFILE
Profile added Matt Coplon to its team in 1998. This year, 2018, marks 20 years. Although Matt has taken on several other duties at the Profile factory, handling both Team, promotional and sales management positions, he still rides almost daily. In celebration of those 20 years on the team, and looking back recently to his turning 41, we’re sharing both his original edit for Profile (Saluting Brutality, circa 1999) as well as his latest, 'Year 41' edit.
With the posting of these two edits, Profile is giving away a one-off prototype of Matt’s custom hub manufactured in their factory this past year.
This internet scavenger hunt will dictate the winner:

"Back in 2017, our head machinist began setting up a program to run a one-off set of hubs for my new build. The very first prototype was an inverted version of the (now extinct) Profile Totem hub mixed with the Classic Profile Rear Mini Hub.
It had the scallops of the Mini Hub (however, instead of being 3-dimensional, they were drilled through the shell) had featured the radius' of the Totem Hub. He went on to produce another version of a one set for my build, which had a much closer resemblance to the Profile Mini Hub.
What we had left is this: the Original prototype." - Matt Coplon
The winner will be able to build this RHD hub with the axle/driver of their choosing.
Contest closes at midnight on Sunday June 17th 2018 | Winner will be announced Monday June 25th 2018
